About the Author

Alan Wieder is an oral historian who lives in Portland, Oregon. He is distinguished professor emeritus at the University of South Carolina and has taught at the University of the Western Cape and Stellenbosch University in South Africa. In the last fifteen years, he has published three books and numerous articles on South Africans who fought against the apartheid regime. The latest book, Ruth First and Joe Slovo in the War Against Apartheid, was published in 2013 by Monthly Review Press.


"Ruth First and Joe Slovo emerge from this book as flesh and blood human beings facing monumentally difficult decisions...This book evokes a vital period which became a focus of myth-making rather than the kind of clear-eyed, honest history Ruth and Joe would each have ultimately have deemed essential."-Dan O'Meara, Author, Volkskapitalisme, and coauthor, The Struggle for South Africa
"Truly a special achievement--the first book to look at these two important people, their work, and their partnership. It's a sad and wonderful tale. I loved meeting Ruth and Joe and all of the supporting characters again in its pages. A job well done."-Glenn Frankel, author, Rivonia's Children: Three Families and the Cost of Conscience in White South Africa
