This reissue of the biography of Robert Sobukwe, who as the leader of the Pan-Africanist Congress on 21.03.1960 led a mass defiance of South Africa’s pass laws, that in due course had been followed by the Sharpeville massacre, contains the same text as the original edition published in 1990 in Britain, and then in the United States and South Africa. Events have moved on since then and some people who are quoted in the text are no longer alive. But the story remains the same and is extended and brought up to date in the new Epilogue; this 3rd revised edition also contains more pictures to illustrate the past.
