Namibia: The Violent Heritage

By David Soggot
St. Martin's, 1986
333 pp. $39.95

A South African lawyer active in Namibian political trials brings to life the nearly forgotten struggle for self-determination in Namibia, viewing it mainly from the perspective of SWAPO's internal activists. He depicts their bloody confrontation with South African security forces against the backdrop of territorial pseudo-politics orchestrated from the republic. By his account the internal battle continues-even if international negotiations over the territory appear decidedly defunct.
