Fit to Govern free pdf This latest book explores the President's intellectual tradition and elaborates on the central ideas out of which Mbeki is governing and running South Africa's democracy. Drawing on his wide knowledge of history, politics and political theory, literature, current world events and the various discourses being debated in South Africa's predominantly "liberal" media (around HIV/AIDS, Zimbabwe, affirmative action, etc.), and having had unprecedented access to the President himself, Roberts is ideally and uniquely placed to write with authority about the President. His book raises the level of public debate around the ANC government's policies both within the country and beyond.
