A Jacana Pocket History: Steve Biko
Steve Biko is often seen as the charismatic leader of the Black Consciousness Movement, who played a useful stopgap role in South African politics in the late 1960s and 1970s.
This biography of Biko shows, on the contrary, just how fundamental he was to the transformation of South Africa in the second half of the 20th century -- and just how relevant he remains today.
