Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Frankel, a staff writer and editor for The Washington Post, tells the story of a handful of white activists, many of them Jewish, who risked their lives to combat apartheid in South Africa during the 1960s. Their underground headquarters was in Rivonia, a Johannesburg suburb, and it was there that their dream of revolution was shattered after a police raid in 1963. Nelson Mandela and nine others were tried for sabotage, leading to the birth of another generation of activists and the miracle of racial reconciliation.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [339]-366) and index.
