Synopsis: This biography of Baroness Cox opens with an eye-witness account of slavery in modern Sudan and Caroline Cox's secret expeditions to buy freedom for the slaves captured by Arab traders in Sudan's war against black Africans in its southern regions. This is just one of her campaigns in an on-going patrol of the world's unpopular causes. The book tells the story of Baroness Cox's humble beginnings as a nurse, her nine-year fight as a Labour-voting sociology lecturer at North London University against the intimidation of the hard left. It recounts her elevation to the peerage by Margaret Thatcher and her hazardous treks into first Communist Poland and Moscow, then warring Nagorno Karabakh, Burma and North-East Africa on behalf of Christian Solidarity International.
About the Author: Andrew Boyd is a jounalist and writer who has travelled with Baroness Cox on her human rights missions. He covered her Sudan slavery trip for The Sunday Telegraph and the BBC in November 1995. He is the author of a number of books and the editor of Christian Solidarity Worldwide's magazine.
