Umkhonto Wesizwe (Pocket History Guides) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Informative and portable, this guide offers a brief yet lively introduction to the Umkhonto we Sizwes (MK) history; the MK was the armed wing of the African National Congress, which fought against the South African apartheid government. Written by leading experts in their fields, it presents in broad outline the various stages in MKs 30-year history, considers the difficult strategic and moral problems the army faced, and argues that its operations are likely to be remembered as a just war conducted with considerable restraint. With personal accounts from those who were active members of this armed group, this handbook also provides a critical analysis of the South African liberation struggle.

About the Author

Janet Cherry is a human rights activist, researcher, and academic who teaches at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University. She has written and published on the history of the liberation struggle for the South African Democratic Education Trust.
