Anti-apartheid activist, writer and academic Raymond Suttner's book Inside Apartheid’s Prison is being published again by Jacana Media, with a new introduction.
The book details Suttner’s experiences of being arrested several times and torchered during the liberation struggle against apartheid.
In the new edition of the book, Suttner describes his break with the ANC and the SACP.
He opened up about how he identified with the struggle of the oppressed as a white person, his experiences of being detained for seven years and the difficult decisions he had to make, then and now.
