A people on the boil which includes a new chapter and new photographs is an account by a black newspaper journalist's reflections of the tumultuous events of 1976 which started in his own backyard. The author's reflections of the events which became a watershed in South African politics and which helped to change the course of the country's history looks at both the background to the uprising and its effects on the people of South Africa. The title is not a treatise on black politics, but rather a human story - the tale of a people trapped in a wicked system and fighting to wriggle out, to free themselves.
