Maureen Isaacson Reviews Under Protest in the Sunday Independent

From Isaacson’s Review:

Daniel Massey is both historian and journalist in this remarkable achievement, which conjures nostalgia for “traditional” and “historical” Fort Hare and delves into the complexity of its political life.

In a battered white Ford Meteor, with Siphiwo Mahala, his friend and research assistant, Massey embarked on a journey across the country, in the late 1990s, into a past that may have otherwise remained uncovered.

    One of those reviews that does author and reviewer credit. Was fascinated by the Buthelezi revelations... must get this.

    At first I didn't realise that Under Protest was a book title and was very intrigued to discover what point Maureen Isaacson was making by writing a review 'under protest'. Deliberately or mistakenly misleading headline? it certainly hooked me!
