"This biography, sourced largely from extensive interviews with Buthelezi, as well as access to his documents, tells how this enmity grew into a violent confrontation in which thousands of lives were lost and which threatened to tear South Africa apart, even on the eve of its first democratic elections in 1994. It tells how Buthelezi, seeking imprimateur from his Church for a 'just war' against apartheid was ignored and found himself in conflict with his Archbishop. It tells of his desertion by close friends of many years and of his continued vilification despite his proven commitment in government where he serves as senior cabinet minister. It is also the story of a man's faith and belief in spiritual values, a man committed to his clan, his nation and his country." from the dustjacket.
