"This is what I aspire to: to recast Black Consciousness, to show that before it was a movement, there were thinkers, activists, students at home with books and ideas who made the latter work in their particular historical context." Daniel Magaziner, from his introduction

"This is an astonishing book. It is intellectual history of the first order, and the best treatment so far of the most important anti-apartheid movement of 1970s South Africa." Paul Landau, author of "Popular Politics in the History of South Africa, 1400-1948"

Daniel Magaziner is an associate professor of history at Cornell University.
