A riveting expose of the media and its anti-apartheid struggle in South Africa as well as the intimate face of a universal war between disinformation and dissent, propaganda and truth, state control and individual rights. Through telling annecdote and cross-cultural analysis, Phelan repeatedly demonstrates that the white South African regime's downward spiral into despotism is a cautionary tale for the United States.
