About this book:

A fresh, different perspective on South African politics. Many common political arguments come pre-packaged in a very old and dusty box - and in this book, Sizwe Mpofu-Walsh sets out to dismantle that box. The self-evident truths are not so inarguable. He argues that free education is far from impossible, land reform is not the first step to chaos, and the media is not free… In this incisive, informed book we find challenges to commonly held opinions and new solutions to old problems.
