War in Worcester

Youth and the Apartheid State

Pamela Reynolds

Forms of Living (FUP)

War in Worcester explores the experiences of the young in taking a stand against the apartheid regime in the 1980s at the height of the struggle for freedom. It combines an analysis of the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission's process and findings with a close ethnographic study in a small town. Issues including tactics, pain, betrayal and ethics are examined from the point of view of young activists and the forms of documentation of conflict used by the Commission are critiqued.
