In this anthology, Sheridan Johns and Hunt Davis, two widely respected scholars of South Africa, address the many questions raised by the country's anti-apartheid struggle by focusing on the writings and speeches of Mandela, Tambo, and the ANC. The work consists of over 45 historic documents, which outline ANC goals and priorities, accompanied by lengthy introductions by the editors. These introductions provide a history of the ANC, examine the organization's prominent role in the evolution of a South African nationalist movement, and consider the organization's role in the future of this troubled land.

Review quote

'this is a welcome collection of materials which are mostly out of print and not readily available' Political Studies 'refreshingly new ... The documentary survey is divided into four chronological sections and an introductory essay precedes each which analyses the period and context into which the documents fit. The authors also provide a general introduction and conclusion, which are informative and well-written. This combination of primary date and secondary analysis and itnerpretation works very well, and the book is worth purchasing for both elements.' John D. Brewer, Queen's University of Belfast, The Journal of Commonwealth and Comparative Politics, Vol. 30, No. 1, March 1992
