 About the Book 

It is a gruesome tale - how we have moved so rapidly from the era of hope to the bleak landscape ushered in by Zumas ascent to power ...Yet Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela, acclaimed author and international expert on reconciliation, wants to rekindle our hope.As a clinical psychologist who has worked for the TRC, in Rwanda and with Holocaust survivors, she offers unique perspectives on healing the wounded South African nation. In this selection of her best local and international writing, she explores our unfinished business, Afrikaner rage, the politics of revenge, why apologies are not enough and how Zuma has corrupted the soul of South Africa.Gobodo-Madikizela offers a lucid and compelling argument that it is only in facing up to our painful past that we can find hope - and a meaningful future.
