South Africa's Search for Truth

Book - 1999
Rate this:
One of Nelson Mandela's first acts as president of South Africa was to create the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, a panel formed to provide public accounting for the crimes of apartheid and to help purge the injustices of the past. This study looks at moral and political issues that shaped the Truth Commission, at the effect of the commission's hearings on the fragile democracy, and at the often horrifying information the commission hearings unearthed about the nature and structure of apartheid. Meredith has written about Africa as a foreign correspondent for the London Observer and Sunday Times, as a research fellow at St. Anthony's College, Oxford, and as an independent author.
