Product Overview

Starkly revealing the deep and demoralizing impact segregation and apartheid had on the identity of South Africa?s citizens, this extraordinary pictorial of the Sunday Times celebrates the fearless news makers and pivotal events of the country?s last 100 years. Presenting an exciting sweep of South African history and honoring the instrumental events and figures of the country?s rich heritage?such as Olive Schreiner?s fight for women?s rights and Archbishop Desmond Tutu?s leadership of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission?this intimate portraiture is a stunning tribute to South Africa?s divided past. Enriched by archival treasures and images previously unavailable to the public, this beautifully compiled and invaluable documentation demonstrates the individual and collective spirit of courage and resistance that characterized much of the struggle for democracy in a uniquely troubled country.
