Usually dispatched within 4 - 8 working days.

Patriots & Parasites, completed just days before Smuts’s unexpected death in 2016, is her account of the momentous period known as the Transition Era, through the lens of her 25-year career as a key opposition MP and a respected legislator.

With ambitious breadth and rare insight, she examines:

  • The arduous but exhilarating work of writing the Constitution and the Bill of Rights
  • The great experiment in catharsis that was the Truth and Reconciliation Commission
  • The reinvigoration of racial polarisation under the Mbeki administration, and the slow burn of resentment that is coming to a head among the next generation (as manifested in the #RhodesMustFall campaign)
  • The entrenchment of cronyism under Zuma, and the fight to protect the crucial balance of accountability enshrined in the freedom of the media and the independence of the judiciary

Review This Product

Helps you understand what's going wrong in SA

Tue, 29 Nov 2016 | Review by: J S

When you read how much work was put into the Consitution, it's devastating to read about how Mbeki wilfully unpicked all the progress and made the current dogshow inevitable (Fees Must Fall etc). Sad that MPs with the integrity of Dene Smuts are a dwindling breed. Good book for the times.
