In this candid memoir & biography, Boraine also deals with the sacrifices made by his family, his battle against cancer, and the challenges, hopes and achievements of South Africa as well as other countries in transition from dictatorship to democracy. A Life in Transition includes fascinating insights into people whom Boraine worked with or met, including Harry Oppenheimer, Steve Biko, Helen Suzman, Van Zyl Slabbert, Thabo Mbeki, Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu and covers political events in some of the world s trouble spots, from Serbia to Sierra Leone, Liberia to Latin America."
