By John S. Saul
20 years on from the autumn of apartheid in South Africa, veteran analyst and activist John S. Saul examines the liberation fight, putting it in a neighborhood and worldwide context and searching at how the preliminary optimism and desire has given technique to a feeling of challenge following hovering inequality degrees and the bloodbath of staff at Marikana.
With chapters on South Africa, Tanzania and Mozambique, Saul examines the truth of southern Africa’s post-'liberation' plight, drawing at the insights of Frantz Fanon and Amilcar Cabral and assessing claims new 'precariat' has emerged.
Saul examines the continued 'rebellion of the poor', together with the new Marikana bloodbath, that experience shaken the sector and should sign the opportunity of a brand new and extra hopeful destiny.
