Time Longer Than Rope
A History of a Black Man's Struggle for Freedom in South Africa
Edward Roux
With a Foreword by Philip D. Curtin

“One of the first histories to treat non-whites as active self conscious protagonists in twentieth-century South African affairs rather than as a dark acquiescent host before which the really important story of white South Africa unfolds. The new edition has been corrected and eight new chapters extend the coverage to the end of 1963. It is an important addition to the literature about South Africa.”
