Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

The U. of Fort Hare, located in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa, has played a key role in the extra-parliamentary politics of South Africa and out of its student body came such prominent political figures as Nelson Mandela, Oliver Tambo, and Mangosuthu Buthelezi. Journalist Massey reconstructs this history from the 1930s onwards but focuses on the 1960 government takeover of the university and the effects of university apartheid thereafter, basing his work in large part on interviews with 34 former students of the university. A key theme of his discussion is the patterns of political development among the students, asking for example why most students rejected any form of collaboration with apartheid, while others, such as Buthelezi, came to participate in government structures or why some embraced multi-racialism while others opted for a more assertive black nationalism that rejected cooperation with non-Africans.

Synopsis:

The history of Fort Hare cannot be retold as if it were one event. It was, and is, the culmination of a drama of interpenetrating and, at times, contradictory forces. It was moulded by the peculiarities of the history of this region of southern Africa, and the struggles authored by that history. ~ Oliver Tambo, 1991 ** Under Protest, by Fort Hare alumnus Daniel Massey, combines a trove of previously untapped university records with the recollections of dozens of former students to dig deep into the complex past of the institution that educated figures like Oliver Tambo, Nelson Mandela, Mangosuthu Buthelezi, and Robert Mugabe. Through the eyes of former students, we see just how the university veered sharply off the course intended by its missionary founders and apartheid trustees, giving birth to many of the most important leaders in South Africa's struggle for democracy. Massey interviews Fort Harians ranging from Govan Mbeki and Wycliffe Tsotsi to Jeff Baqwa and Thenjiwe Mtintso, who
