“To achieve a peaceful revolution around a table can be much more complicated than negotiating with ‘the enemy’ behind prison bars. South Africa’s former spy boss, Niël Barnard, realised this all too well when the largely unprepared NP government came up against the ANC at the Codesa negotiations. As a senior negotiator, Barnard was in the engine room of the historic negotiations which almost derailed several times. He was there the day when the always-calm Nelson Mandela’s temper flared and he shouted at FW de Klerk. He witnessed the NP losing the high ground while the ANC gained the upper hand. In this insider account, Barnard provides penetrating insights into what went on behind the scenes in the tension-filled transitional period destined to determine South Africa’s future.”
