Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a emigre from SA, I was looking forward to this book. Unfortunately, it is a summary of just about every single rumor that one can find about the Secret Services in the old SA....and then one is left hanging! I have gotten about half way and am pretty much giving up. Hopefully, edition 2 ( for we really do need an definitive narrative of all the dirty tricks and inhumanity under apardheid) or another book will be clearer, more concise and at least attempt some narrative that can be followed.

Format: Paperback
This is a fantastic political, sociological, and security history of South Africa during the apartheid era. It says a lot about why the country is the way it is today. The only place this book falls short is in the editing. In places it was so bad that a reader stumbles over phrasing, dates, or information.
