Description

..". this book is rich in information, allegation, and argument. Moreover, its forthright tone balances the indulgent piety of much other writing on the ANC and SACP." --SouthScan..". a fascinating and indispensable account of how the inner workings of the South African Communist Party affected its problematic role in and ambiguous impact on the antiapartheid struggle." --Choice..". extraordinary.... Possibly the most original contribution in a decade to the literature on South African politics." --Foreign AffairsUsing insider knowledge and previously unavailable information, the authors describe how the Communist Party took over leadership of the ANC during the time when both organizations were banned in South Africa and forced to establish their headquarters in exile. The book also discusses the guerrilla army set up jointly by the two organizations in 1961 under the command of Nelson Mandela.show more
