20 years on from the autumn of apartheid in South Africa, veteran analyst and activist John S. Saul examines the liberation fight, putting it in a nearby and worldwide context and looking out at how the preliminary optimism and wish has given solution to a feeling of obstacle following hovering inequality degrees and the bloodbath of staff at Marikana.

With chapters on South Africa, Tanzania and Mozambique, Saul examines the truth of southern Africa’s post-'liberation' plight, drawing at the insights of Frantz Fanon and Amilcar Cabral and assessing claims new 'precariat' has emerged.

Saul examines the continued 'rebellion of the poor', together with the new Marikana bloodbath, that experience shaken the zone and should sign the opportunity of a brand new and extra hopeful destiny.

True, as we will see, the implications of what had been begun with the Arusha Declaration in 1968 were just too dangerous and too radical even for its initial champion, Julius Nyerere.

Standing nearby, I saw my own student Akivaga, the Kenyan leader of the University Student Council who, having been summoned for a meeting with the principal, was then dragged, at gun-point, down the cement stairs at the front of the administration building, tossed like a sack of old clothes into a waiting army vehicle and sped away to his expulsion both from the university and from the country. No more can I forget those (admittedly few) Tanzanian faculty members who had tended to side with the students at the time, for they were also to be disciplined (as were a number of us non-Tanzanians, who were very soon to find our contracts not renewed).
