Comrades Against Apartheid: The ANC and the South African Communist Party in Exile
This book is about the South African Communist Party and how it took over the leadership of the African National Congress between 1960 and 1990, during the time when both organisations were banned in South Africa and forced to establish their headquarters in exile. It also concerns Umkhonto we Sizwe, the Spear of the Nation, the guerrilla army set up jointly by both organisations in 1961 under the overall command of Nelson Mandela. The banning of the ANC left them no other means of political expression but to fight. Central to the book is Tsepo Sechaba's inside account of the interaction of the SACP and ANC. He was also witness to much of the espionage, counter-espionage and infiltration which was carried out by the South African government.
