Foreward. Foreword to the 2008 edition. When this book was first published in 1990, it contained only thirteen chapters, and the dramatic events of the early 1990s, which make up the “extra” eleven chapters, had not yet taken place. Even though I had predicted that the militants of the AWB would use violence to try and stop the political developments in South Africa from taking place, and indeed, a Sunday Times review of the book that year focused on my predictions, I could not precisely foresee the enormity of the events of those times. For it is so that the AWB’s armed campaign would put to shame the very best that the ANC had been able to muster over the previous three decades. Strangely, this period of contemporary South African history is largely unknown. Essentially, this book from chapter fourteen onwards, is based on my own experiences. I lived through it all, knew or met most of the characters involved, and was often a direct eyewitness to the events. I decided to write it all down because, whether one liked it or not, it did happen, and because there are no other records of that time, it needs to be captured before time erodes all traces. I would like to dedicate this book to my friend Nick Fourie, who died needlessly and tragically in Bophuthatswana. Rest in peace, Nick, I still think of you. ...
