Presenting the second installment in a standout series, this updated biography records the life of radical political activist and scholar Ruth First, who was considered one of the foremost journalists of her time. Containing newly added details to mark the 30th anniversary of First’s tragic assassination in 1982, this second edition studies her membership in the Communist Party, illustrating her insider's view on the extraordinary social, political, and labor struggles that took place in South Africa from the end of World War II until her exile in 1963. The study reveals how her books are academic landmarks in political analysis and how her account of detention and interrogation by the South African security police remains one of the most important exposures of imprisonment to emerge from the country’s history. This examination also features her key writings, an exhaustive bibliography, and suggestions for further reading.
