Praise

“The most important book about South Africa since the demise of apartheid in the early 1990s … an account which makes John Grisham plots look wimpish.”—Scotsman

“For those contemplating a first journey into the murky world of South African politics, there can be few better guides than Andrew Feinstein. This book by the lawyerly figure who would come to be known as the ANC’s ‘Mr Clean’ … charts a giddy ascent from political newcomer to euphoric MP and on to disillusioned critic and exile.”—Independent

“With wrenching anger and painstaking care, Feinstein’s new book describes how graft has infected [South Africa’s] new establishment.”—The Economist

“Essential reading.”—Financial Times

“A searing close-up portrait of the corrupting force of power.”—The Los Angeles Times

“This important and brave book illustrates the extent to which South Africa’s multibillion-dollar arms deal has undermined the rule of law, accountability and constitutionality in the country. It provides compelling evidence the corruption linked to the deal and the mishandling of the AIDS pandemic marked the point at which our young democracy lost its moral compass. It also speaks to the virtues of transparent, accountable politics of principle that is needed in South Africa and so much of the world.”—Archbishop Desmond Tutu
