The Special Collections Book of the Week this week is:
Albie Sachs and transformation in South Africa by Drucilla Cornell and Karin van Marle with Albie Sachs.
Emeritus Justice Albie Sachs was a freedom fighter for most of his life. He then played a major role in the negotiating committee for the new constitution of South Africa, and was subsequently appointed to the new Constitutional Court of South Africa. Therefore the question of what it means to make the transition from a freedom fighter to participant in the revolutionary government is not abstract. The essays in this book raise the complex question of what it actually means to make this transition without selling out to the demands of realism.
