Description
When South Africa's apartheid government charged the late Nelson Mandela with planning its overthrow in 1963, most observers feared that he would be sentenced to death; the support that he and his fellow activists in the African National Congress received during his trial not only saved his life, but also eventually enabled him to save his country. Based upon interviews with many of the case's primary figures and portions of the trial transcript, Kenneth Broun's history takes readers inside the courtroom at the imposing Palace of Justice in Pretoria, and showing the nation at a crossroads.

"Kenneth Broun does justice indeed to one of the most celebrated political trials of the 20th century … the result is not only a gripping story but a work of profound scholarship, sensitivity, and empathy."—Mark Gevisser
