Review quote

'Marx's book marks the first step in what is likely to ne an important debate over the dynamics of a major social movement ... Lessons of Struggle will provide the kind of historical background that might otherwise be lost in the transition, as old debates - particularly around black nationalism - re-emerge in a new context.' Contemporary Sociology 'This is a thoroughly researched and thoughtful book, something which is rare in the literature on South African opposition ... this book should be read not only by students of South Africa, but all those concerned with the relationship between opposition groups and the state.'
