Learning from Robben Island by
Call Number: Olin Library HC905 .M47
South Africa has jailed so many gifted men and women that there already exists a sizeable body of prison writing … The essays by Govan Mbeki which comprise this book add to this distinguished list. Yet they differ in important respects from all others: they were written, circulated and preserved in prison. They were never intended for publication but to be read by other prisoners; their aim is not to share an experience but to educate politically. They are remarkable documents.
