It is based on rich interviews with many of the subject’s friends and contemporaries, and it situates Ramaphosa’s achievements and his short-comings in the context of the often tumultuous historical events that surrounded him. Here is a frank appraisal of the achievements and limitations of one of the South Africa’s most enigmatic political figures.
