This was the period of apartheid in South Africa and for most of the next thirty years, the Rand Daily Mail was the countrys liberal white voice against the tyranny of the Afrikaner Nationalist government.A riveting memoir and a complex commentary on apartheid and freedom of the press, War of Words offers an insiders perspective on one of the most turbulent, and arguably one of the most significant, periods in modern history.
