NHA Staff Recommendation:
"This novel deals with the social issues in South Africa that gave rise to Apartheid. It shows many of the problems with South Africa such as the degrading of the land reserved for the natives, which is sometimes considered to be the main theme, the disintegration of the tribal community, native crime and the flight to the urban areas. This is a must read to understand the politics concerning South Africa." – Wendy Klausner
