1 Russell, Alec After Mandela - The Battle for the Soul of South Africa
London Hutchinson 2009 0091926017 / 9780091926014 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Fine 
A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. First edition, first printing. xxii + 312 pages. In the early 1990's, the African National Congress, led by Nelson Mandela, engaged in a historic and peaceful transition to power in South Africa. For some, the story of South Africa ended with that moment - the victory of the ANC over the bitter injustice of the apartheid regime, and Mandela's astonishing mission of reconciliation. Yet while the economy has grown steadily, as has a fledgling black middle class, and black South Africans have attained positions of great wealth and power, rampant inequality still remains. Violence is endemic in the townships and in the major cities. Race relations are fraught as whites struggle to find their place in the new order. President Thabo Mbeki's denial of the AIDS epidemic has led to thousands of unnecessary deaths and has been morally and politically dangerous, as has his failure to check the abuses of Roberst Mugabe's dictatorship in Zimbabwe, which has tarnished South Africa's reputation abroad. In this expertly researched account, the award winning journalist draws on his deep knowledge of South Africa and his relationships with its most important figures - Mbeki, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and of course Mandela himself.
