The Arrogance of Power PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Arrogance of Power free pdf Dr Xolela Mangcu has earned a reputation as one of South Africa's most vibrant and engaging public voices. This new book is a collection of his columns written for local and international newspapers over the past fifteen years. Vivid, polemical and poignant, it records the initial excitement - and growing disillusionment - of a leading black intellectual about post-apartheid government, notably the administrations of Thabo Mbeki and Jacob Zuma, and the growing realisation that achieving real liberation in South Africa will require an even longer struggle than he had once believed.
