Biko: A Life

by Xolela Mangcu, with a Foreword by Nelson Mandela - £13.99  I.B.Tauris & Co Ltd (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781780767857 | ISBN 10: 1780767854

Steve Biko was an exceptional and inspirational leader, a pivotal figure in South African history. As a leading anti-apartheid activist and thinker, Biko created the Black Consciousness Movement, the grassroots organisation which would mobilise a large proportion of the black urban population. His death in policy custody at the age of just 30 robbed South Africa of one of its most gifted leaders. Although the rudimentary facts of his life - and death - are well known, there has until now been no in-depth book on this major political figure and the impact of his life and tragic death.
 
Xolela Mangcu, who knew Biko, provides the first in-depth look at the life of one of the most iconic figures of the anti-apartheid movement, whose legacy is still strongly felt today, both in South Africa, and worldwide in the global struggle for civil rights, today.
