In a time when South Africa nearly went up in flames, Denis Beckett
wasn't always very popular as fulltime editor of anti-apartheid
magazine Frontline and part-time political activist. Radical Middle
tells the story of the starry-eyed young Joburg journalist who
turned into a determined editor who would do anything to keep his
magazine afloat in the turbulent eighties. Beckett's humorous and
often self-deprecating sketches of his altercations with media
bosses, black activists, narrow-minded Nationalist politicians and
ordinary South Africans goes beyond a mere personal account. It
also documents an era and serves as a powerful reminder 'lest we
forget'. Laugh at the suburban angst and gasp at the petty politics
of a time when demanding 'one man, one vote' was seen as the height
