"This book describes the vertiginously rapid descent of political leadership in South Africa from Mandela to Zuma, and its consequences." Robin Renwick, from his preface
"Mandatory reading for those wanting to understand how South Africa and the Mandela vision came perilously close to total destruction. Reads like a thriller." John Battersby, freelance journalist
Lord Renwick was the British ambassador in South Africa when Nelson Mandela was released from jail. He is also the author of "Helen Suzman: bright star in a dark chamber" and "The End of Apartheid: diary of a revolution".
