About: A Rebel for Change in Apartheid South Africa and Colonial Namibia

In A Rebel for Change in Apartheid South Africa and Colonial Namibia, the reader is told of a closed, oppressive racism and a corrosive system of super- and subordination that denied those who grew up under it an engagement with the 'Other' and with alternative norms and values. This autobiography is as much about writing as it is about thinking a life and locating that life within a fast-changing socio-economic and political context. It testifies to the dedicated hard work and selfless service that the writer rendered over several decades to many Namibians and South Africans of all walks of life, as a friend, father, academic, researcher, sage, politician, believer, and conversationalist. Gerhard Tötemeyer delivers a moving, enlightening, and in parts, provocative, read and in this he makes a significant contribution to the genre of autobiography and to Namibian literature. It deserves to be widely read and discussed, even if it generates controversy. (Andre du Pisani)
