Into the Cannibal's Pot: Lessons for America From Post-Apartheid South Africa is the second book by paleolibertarian author and columnist Ilana Mercer, published in 2011.


In the book, Ilana Mercer analyzes post-Apartheid South Africa from a classical liberal perspective, and argues that the haste in which state power was transferred, on the basis of race, to the black majority, has yielded disastrous, often tragic results, not only for the white, now-powerless minority, but also for the black majority. Mercer, no champion of apartheid—once a tireless activist against petty apartheid—continually uses the example of South Africa to forewarn Americans of the effects of a shift in their country's founding political dispensation, a shift she maintains is being achieved through the mass importation of poor, third-world immigrants. Concluding that if the current trends continue, the United States will face a similar fate.[1][2]

Critical reception[edit]

Into the Cannibal's Pot received generally positive reviews.[3] Author Thomas Szasz calling it “an interesting, important, well-written and well-documented book that informs the reader but is likely to upset, perhaps even anger, some or many of them,”[4] while columnist Jack Kerwick reviewing it for NewAmerican.com wrote that "Cannibal succeeds in weaving into a seamless whole a number of distinct modes of thought", and "the richness of Mercer's intellect is as impressive as the soundness of her character."[5] Novelist, author and columnist John Derbyshire praised the book calling it "compelling and important"[6] and Erik Rush of WorldNetDaily wrote that "Ilana Mercer infuses 'Cannibal's Pot' with her wealth of knowledge and insight into the dynamic of South Africa’s plight," and "as she asserts, condemnation of the new racist South Africa is not advocacy for the racist old."[7]
