Inside Apartheid's Prison
In 1975, in apartheid-torn South Africa, Raymond Suttner, a young white "idealistic revolutionary" was arrested for his political activities, one of which was publishing an illegal antiapartheid pamphlet. These activities led to years of imprisonment and times of torture and intimidation. Some two decades later, as a member of the African National Congress's executive committee, Suttner decided to make his struggles, both personal and political, public. Inside Apartheid's Prison: Notes and Letters of Struggle is a kind of epistolary memoir, with Suttner's letters home a testimony to his ordeals and the strength with which he faced them.
