Biko Lives! Contesting the Legacies of Steve Biko
Edited by Andile Mngxitama, Amanda Alexander and Nigel C. Gibson
Biko Lives! is an intervention in post-apartheid South African politics as well as the culture and history of the anti-apartheid movements, addressing not only the current commodification of Steve Biko but also the various appropriations of his legacy.
"Taken as a whole, this collection os essays is an important addition to the scholarship on Steve Biko. It contributes not only to a deeper understanding of what philosophy is, but also how Biko's writing can be considered philosophical."
"I never thought I would read anything like this that reminded me of the 'good old days' when we were giddy with hopes and enthusiasm for recreating our own world! Biko Lives! will ruffle many feathers. People who have been trying to 'program' the forward movement of history and human development are going to have to think again."
