Anne Heffernan considers the history of student organisations in the Northern Transvaal (today Limpopo Province) and the ways in which students there have influenced political change on a national scale.
"This is an elegant and incisive study of youth and student politics, which deepens understanding of the phenomenon as a whole and is highly original in its emphasis upon the importance of regional and local experiences within the national narrative." Colin Bundy, University of Oxford
Anne Hefferman is Assistant Professor in the History of Southern Africa at Durham University, UK, and Research Associate of the History Workshop, University of the Witwatersrand. She is co-editor of Students Must Rise: youth struggle in South Africa before and beyond Soweto '76.
