Editorial Reviews


"Art and Revolution" is, in plain terms, a biography of a noted South African artist whose work interrogated the individual and collective experience of apartheid during the 1970s and early 1980s. But it is also a cultural history, an intellectual history, and, unavoidably, a political history of the period. A particular spirit spirit inhabits this book, consisting of personal memory and obligation to a friend lost in the prime of his life...this book marks yet another intellectual departure for Wylie, demonstrating a versatility to be much admired.

(Christopher Lee, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill H-SAfrica)
