Recent works have focused primarily on Nelson Mandelas transcendent story.

But Douglas Foster, a leading South Africa authority with early, unprecedented access to President Zuma and to the next generation in the Mandela family, traces the nations entire post-apartheid arc, from its celebrated beginnings under Madiba to Thabo Mbekis tumultuous rule to the ferocious battle between Mbeki and Jacob Zuma.

Foster tells this story not only from the point of view of the emerging black elite but also, drawing on hundreds of rare interviews over a six-year period, from the perspectives of ordinary citizens, including an HIV-infected teenager living outside Johannesburg and a homeless orphan in Cape Town. This is the long-awaited, revisionist account of a country whose recent history has been not just neglected but largely ignored by the West.
