Review:

"James Sivewright is badly in need of historical rehabilitation. This thorough biography, by the one person who has seen all of the Sivewright papers and the relevant archives, ought to achieve that posthumous rehabilitation - if anyone can accomplish such a difficult task." - Prof. Robert I. Rotberg Harvard University "... brings new insights to an important part of South African historiography." - Prof. Aran S. MacKinnon University of West Georgia"
