by Steve Biko - £10.99  Heinneman (1987)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780435905989 | ISBN 10: 0435905988

"Like Nelson Mandela's No Easy Walk to Freedom, Biko's selfless pieces of thought, resilience, and longer-term faith in a humanely shared planet will influence South Africa's transition to majority rule." (Tribune)
On 12 September, 1977, Steve Biko was murdered in his prison cell. He was only 31, but his vision and charisma - captured in this collection of his work - had already transformed the agenda of South African politics.

"We have set out on a quest for true humanity, and somewhere on the horizon, we can see the glittering prize. Let us march forth with courage and determination, drawing strength from our common plight and our brotherhood. In time, we shall be in a position to bestow on South Africa the greatest possible gift - a more human face."
(Steve Biko)
