Ken Keable (ed.) London Recruits. The Secret War against Apartheid.

The review presents a book of memoirs and studies by former British participants of anti-apartheid struggle in South Africa. They describe their involvement, methods they used in their activities, thier encounters with apartheid secret police and their cooperation with the operatives of the military wing of the African National Congress. Reminiscences are tinted with romanticism, but the analyses is sober and valid. In addition the romaticization of the past does not lead the authors to condone the policy of the ANC governemnt today.
