Product Description

Traces the life of Robert Sobukwe, anti-apartheid activist and leader of the Pan-Africanist Congress

From Publishers Weekly

Robert Sobukwe is the forgotten man of the South African anti-apartheid struggle, a founder of the Pan-Africanist Congress and chief mover in the anti-pass-law demonstrations that led to the 1960 massacre of unarmed protestors at Sharpeville. Imprisoned for eight years after the event and then banned by the South African government, Sobukwe was largely absent from the public eye from 1960 until his death from cancer in 1978. Pogrund, a journalist now with London''s Independent , was a close friend who has written this biography in part to correct the historical record. The result is a consistently fascinating and moving portrait. More important, Pogrund places Sobukwe''s life in the larger context of South African history, allowing American readers to understand the evolution of the system of apartheid with startling clarity. He touches, for example, on the government''s decision in the late 1950s to reconstruct "the tribalism that had been on the wane" among black South Africans. Sobukwe wrote to the author,"I''ll never write an autobiography, Benjie." Pogrund has done his friend great justice in this volume, an essential book on the South African struggle.

From Library Journal

This readable biography of Robert Sobukwe, leader of the Pan-Africanist Congress, is a welcome addition to the literature on the opposition movements in South Africa. Organized in 1959, the Pan-Africanist Congress, which grew out of a movement within the African National Congress that opposed the multiracialism of the ANC, headed a campaign for the mass defiance of the pass laws. The protest resulted in the Sharpeville massacre in March 1960, and Sobukwe was jailed for nine years. After his release and until his death in 1978, he was placed under house arrest, preventing him from engaging in political activity and severely limiting his interaction with others. Pogrund, a liberal South African journalist, became Sobukwe''s close friend before his imprisonment. His detailed portrait of Sobukwe''s strengths and weaknesses is a reminder that many remarkable individuals who were denied the right to participate fully in South African society still contributed to the development of political ideas. Recommended for public libraries and academic institutions.

Great book. Robery Subukwe in South Africa was what Malcom X was to the United States. His story is riveting and enlightening. He was the un-sung hero of the Apartheid movement because the spotlight has always been on Nelson Mandela. Highly recommended!!!

This book is about Robert Sobukwe, a man of giant intellect and character. Sobukwe was held on Robben Island as a political prisoner for his role as the leader of the Pan-African movement . This is also where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned but, unlike Mandela, Sobukwe was held in isolation for six years - - away from the main prison in his own small outbuilding. Because of his intelligence, leadership and unwavering commitment, he was deemed too much of a threat to the Apartheid system to be held amongst the other prisoners.
The author Benjamin Pogrund knew Sobukwe well - he was his close friend and an important life line during the most challenging parts of Sobukwe''s life, all of which is chronicled in the book. Pogrund reveals his own remarkable perseverance in the face of constant government oppression as a white journalist who himself challenged the Apartheid system. His absolute fidelity to his friend Sobukwe is inspiring.
This is one of the most important books I have ever read. It is remarkably written and each chapter is more riveting than the last. Although I devour most books, this one was too good to rush through. It touched my soul like no other.
