Rabble-Rouser for Peace: The Authorised Biography of Desmond Tutu

by John Allen - £12.99  Ebury Press (Rider & Co) (2007)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781846040641 | ISBN 10: 1846040647

Rabble-Rouser for Peace is the first book to tell the full story of how a boy from South Africa's poverty-stricken black townships became one of the world's best-known religious figures, a moral icon to those who work for peace and justice everywhere.
 
Drawn from 30 years of the author's first-hand contact with Tutu, this is not only a vivid character study of a public figure with a unique capacity to communicate warmth, humour and compassion; it is also a rich account of his dynamic place in history.
 
The story of Desmond Tutu's life tells a crucial part of South Africa's history and its movement towards peace, but it also follows the growth of one of the best loved and globally most recognised men of our time.
