Marikana: A View from the Mountain and a Case to Answer Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dubbed the "Marikana Massacre," the Marikana miners strike was the single most lethal use of force by South African security forces against civilians since the end of apartheid; those killed were mineworkers in pursuit of a pay raise. Through a series of interviews conducted with workers who survived the attack, this account documents and examines the controversial shootings in great detail. In addition, it includes a narrative of the preceding events as well as of the violence itself written from the perspective of the strikers. Unique and revealing, his book tells of police murders, sadness, bravery, and pride.
