The Theatre of Violence: Narratives of Protagonists in the South African Conflict



This profound and deeply compassionate study aims to reach into complexities of political violence and to expand our understanding of the patterns of conflict that almost drew South Africans into vortex disintegration during the apartheid era. The authors offer the first critical examination of the TRC's amnesty process, show how media representation of perpetrators inform public perceptions, and scrutinise international scholarly reflection on the issue of political violence.
