Lessons of Struggle

South African Internal Opposition, 1960-1990

Anthony W. Marx

An in-depth analysis of thirty years of South African opposition, this unique new text focuses on the development of the ideas and organizations of the Black Consciousness movement founded by Steve Biko, the ANC-aligned United Democratic Front, and the burgeoning trade unions. Presenting the South African conflict in the context of general theoretical debates on the role of ideas in shaping social change, theories of race, nation, class, revolution, The Lessons of Struggle will be an essential text for courses in South African studies, political science, and social theory.
