Praise

“Benjamin Pogrund was our bravest reporter . . . His courage was an inspiration.” –Donald Woods, author of Biko: Cry Freedom


“[Pogrund] unfolds three stories: South Africa’s; that of Johannesburg’s Rand Daily Mail, for which he wrote from 1958 until its demise in 1985; and his own. Pogrund recounts his boyhood as the son of Jewish Lithuanian immigrants and his adult commitment to dispassionate reporting that could not be used as propaganda by anyone. The book is a view of apartheid’s bloodiest years from inside South Africa’s leading newspaper by a man who knew the country’s leaders personally and who appears candid about his own mistakes and those he saw on all sides. Fascinating in both perspective and detail.” –Thomas J. Davis, Library Journal
