Not only is The Communistisation of the ANC an account of one man’s career as an agent recruited by South African intelligence to infiltrate the Communist Party, and how he became so trusted by both parties he was able to work as a double-agent, but it is also an account of how the intention was to turn South Africa completely communist. Having been trained in Moscow by the KGB and sent to Beijing to seek information on their behalf, Gerard Ludi came to have a deep understanding of the aims and mentality of those wishing to spread communism further. The history of communism in South Africa goes back to the early 1900’s when Bill Andrews founded the Communist Party of South Africa (CPSA) in 1921. The Communistisation of the ANC, which also reads like an extended James Bond novel, takes one behind the scenes of what really happened and is still going on. It tells of cover-ups, errors of judgement, small incidences and co-incidences that changed the intended course of action, of bravery, stress and hope.
