"Narrative history at its best. With prodigious detail and eloquent prose Simpson places Black South Africans at the centre of the country’s historical evolution and claims his place at the head table of contemporary historians. A masterpiece!" Xolela Mangcu, Executive Chairman of the Platform for Public Deliberation and author of To the Brink: The state of democracy in South Africa

"In this pacy and compelling political history of South Africa, Simpson draws on fresh sources to extend the arc of apartheid and resistance into the current moment. By doing so he skilfully illuminates the country's current predicaments." Saul Dubow, Smuts Professor of Commonwealth History, University of Cambridge

Thula Simpson is Associate Professor at the University of Pretoria. He is the author of Umkhonto we Sizwe, the ANC's armed struggle (2016).
