    DescriptionHow did Mandela's successor Thabo Mbeki repress debate within the party, impose his AIDS denialism on government, refuse to criticize Mugabe's rule in Zimbabwe and stop an investigation of a GBP5 billion arms deal that was tainted by allegations of high-level corruption? Feinstein shows how this infamous deal epitomizes all that is rotten at the heart of the ANC. Investigating the payment of up to $200 million worth of bribes, he reveals a web of concealment and corruption involving figures at the very highest level of South African politics. With an insider's account of the events surrounding the contentious trial of South Africa's colourful deputy president, Jacob Zuma, "After the Party" is the most important book on South Africa since the end of apartheid.
