In this gripping social history of South Africa, award-winning journalist Mark Gevisser follows the family of former South African President Thabo Mbeki to make sense of his legacy and understand the future of the country under new President Jacob Zuma. With unparalleled access to Mbeki and Zuma, as well as other key players in the ANC, Gevisser presents an intimate yet accessible account of South Africa’s past, present and future. With his stunning account of the Mbeki family’s history as a backdrop, Gevisser fleshes out a monumental period in world history that will continue to shape African politics for years to come.

The New York Times - Suzanne Daley

…an impressive feat of journalism…Gevisser writes well, particularly when he is witness to an event, when his narrative leaps off the page.
