Battlefront Namibia

By John Ya-Otto

Lawrence Hill, 1981, 151 pp.

The Labor Minister of SWAPO (Southwest Africa People's Organization) recounts his personal saga of developing political commitment, conflict with the Boer adversary, imprisonment, torture, trial, rustication, and the agonizing decision to flee his homeland. His experience affords the reader an unusual perspective on black-white relations in Namibia and the (necessarily) subterranean world of black politics there.
