A memoir by politician, academic, businessman, and diplomat Denis Worrall (b. 1935). He represented the National Party (NP) in Parliament, was chairman of the Constitutional Committee of the President's Council and served as Ambassador to Australia (1982-1984) and Ambassador to the United Kingdom (1984-1987). Opposed to the NP's shift from reform to security after 1985 he formed the liberal anti-apartheid Independent Party with Wynand Malan in 1988. He subsequently became one of the three co-leaders of the Democratic Party, and won the Berea constituency for the DP in the 1989 election. Self-published.
