MMPB POCKET PAPERBACK [GLASER, CLIVE] {SOUTH AFRICAN HISTORY} A JACANA POCKET HISTORY

More Description from Internet Sources--

This brilliant little book tells the story of the African National Congress (ANC) Youth League from its origins in the 1940s to the present and the controversies over Julius Malema and his influence in contemporary youth politics. Glaser analyzes the ideology and tactics of its founders, some of whom (notably Nelson Mandela and Oliver Tambo) later became iconic figures in South African history as well as inspirational figures such as A. P. Mda (father of author Zakes Mda) and Anton Lembede. It shows how the early Youth League gave birth not only to the modern ANC but also to its rival, the Pan Africanist Congress. Dormant for many years, the Youth League reemerged in the transition era under the leadership of Peter Mokaba -- infused with the tradition of the militant youth politics of the 1980s. Throughout its history the Youth League has tried to "dynamize" and criticize the ANC from within, while remaining devoted to the mother body and struggling to find a balance between loyalty and rebellion.
