"Emma Gilbey's carefully researched and fluently written book charts Winnie's gradual rise from rural teacher's daughter in the Transkei to political prima donna in Soweto, and explains in readable form the complex backdrop to her sudden fall from grace. It is an honest attempt to determine how a fundamentally decent - albeit haughty, headstrong and ambitious - woman, became an apologist for some of the worst excesses of black South Africa's armed struggle. For those who want to understand why, this book should be required reading" - Daily Telegraph.
