This volume is the first part of his mission. It is not a biography even though it offers fascinating and significant insights – many hitherto unknown – of Sobukwe’s life. Rather, it is a testament to a man of towering intellect, deeply held principles, unwavering courage and unforgettable personal charm, and the authority he continues to have, even years after his passing. The book provides fascinating insight into what influenced the political growth of Sobukwe. Historians, politicians, students and the general public will want to join Thami Ka Plaatjie, in his search for Robert Mangaliso Sobukwe.
