‘The Rocky Rioter Teargas Show’ was the title of a satrical pamphlet written by students at the time of the 1976 Soweto Uprising. This book, published on the 25th anniversary of the events, draws heavily from contemporary accounts, newspaper reports and interviews with observers and participants. It quotes from previously classified government documents and presents photographs that have never been seen before. These sources are woven into an accessible, fascinating account with general appeal, written in a strong and lively narrative style. The book raises controversial questions about the Soweto Uprising, such as: * the role of Winnie Mandela; * divisions within the Black Consciousness movement; * the government’s use of force – the book quotes from Cabinet minutes giving approval of ‘more deaths’ caused by police action.
