Mac Maharaj - Contents

Contents

This is the official web site for O'Malley's Shades of Difference: MacMaharaj and the Struggle for South Africa, published by Penguin books in April/May 2007.  It chronicles the life and times of Mac Maharaj, a powerhouse in the ANC and SACP for almost four decades. It includes extensive interviews with Maharaj between 1993 and 2006, his family and colleagues, and hitherto unavailavle documents to throw new light on the decades long struggle against apartheid, the ongoing struggle to build a democratic South Africa, the in latter years the bitter "wars" within the ANC and between the ANC and its Alliance partners, COSATU and the SACP. The site complements and contains all source material for Shades of Difference.
