, ,


Sol Plaatjeʼs Mafeking Diary, kept during the famous siege of 1899-1900, is one of South Africaʼs finest pieces of writing and a foretaste of a brilliant career to come. Yet it has never had the acclaim and attention deserves. In this book, fifty years on from the diaryʼs first publication, a distinguished cast of contributors come together to shed new light on the remarkable qualities of the diary and the circumstances in which it was written.
