Author: William Finnegan
William Finnegan's compelling account of a year spent teaching in a colored high school, across the line, in Cape Town, South Africa brings the irrationality and injustice of apartheid into focus for the American reader. A new preface, written after the author's observation of the historic 1994 elections evaluates the progress madeand not madetoward dismantling the apartheid system.
