Review:

"This welcome collection of essays about Biko's existentialism, self-consciousness, place of phenomenology in his philosophy, and contribution to the dialectics of liberation, as well as the meaning of race and class problematic in Biko's work, African culture and humanism in his thinking, attitude toward the rights and roles of women, and much more examines his legacy and the meaning that his preachings, writings, and life's example gave to the development of black consciousness in South Africa. But, by far, the most important chapters in the book are Gail Gerhart's hitherto unpublished 1972 interview with Biko and Neville Alexander's recollection of Biko and the Azanian Manifesto." - R. I. Rotberg, Choice"Taken as a whole, this collection of essays is an important addition to the scholarship on Steve Biko. It contributes not only to a deeper understanding of what philosophy is, but also how Biko's writing can be considered philosophical." - Martin Murray, Professor of Sociology, SUNY Binghamton"I never thought I would read anything like this that reminded me of the 'good old days' when we were giddy with hopes and enthusiasm for recreating our own world! Biko Lives! will ruffle many feathers. People who have been trying to 'program' the forward movement of history and human development are going to have to think again."

- Bokwe Mafuna, former journalist, founding organizer of the Black Workers' Project, and friend of Steve Biko's
