Prologue by Luli Callinicos. Foreword by Mac Maharaj.

An account of four generations of the Naidoo family, and their commitment to the struggle for freedom in South Africa and the development of the country's constitutional democracy.

"Ismail Vadi is ideally placed to have recorded this remarkable story: he is an historian and intellectual deeply involved in the politics of the Indian community and is himself an active contributor to the unfolding of events in his lifetime. I recommend this inspiring story of commitment and service to all those who strive for a non-racial, inclusive and democratic South Africa." Luli Callinicos, author of Oliver Tambo: Beyond the Engeli Mountains

Ismail Vadi was a Member of the Executive Council for Roads and Transport for Gauteng. Currently he is Senior Research Fellow at the Gordon Institute for Business Science at the University of Pretoria.
