This study represents the first book-length account of the African National Congress by one of its members. The author, who is the editor of Sechaba, the official organ of the ANC, largely avoids heavy propaganda and gives a fairly straight factual outline from the ANC perspective; in the same way, however, he also avoids revealing almost any new detail about the organization that would make this history interesting to scholars and other South Africa watchers.
