The ANC and the turn to armed struggle 1950-1970 Paperback / softback
Edited by Ben Turok
Part of the Understanding the ANC today series series
This title was first published in the late 1960s at a time when the ANC was forced by events to confront major ideological and policy issues.
Many of these debates are still not resolved and many have great relevance for the present.
The issues are: What was distinctive about the armed struggle?
Why was a transfer of state power necessary? Why is African nationalist sentiment important? What is the relation between revolution and democracy?
What are the prospects for socialism in South Africa?
A leading thinker in the ANC discusses these questions and presents ways of approaching them.
