Reviews

"A hard-hitting, searingly honest and indubitably courageous account of the author's personal and political journey into South Africa's post-apartheid parliament as a member of the African National Congress--and his departure from it over the failure of the party leadership to support any parliamentary enquiry into a notoriously corrupt arms deal; it also leads the reader to the heart of South Africa's politics over the last decade. It is an indispensable read for anyone interested in understanding the challenges and dilemmas of contemporary South African politics."--Shula Marks
"As this book makes clear, every budding African democracy would benefit from a plethora of Andrew Feinsteins. Principled, anguished and sincere, he is the kind of man who cannot help doggedly holding power to account."--Michela Wrong
"Anyone wishing to understand what has happened to the South African dream must read this book. Enthralling and lucid, it shows how the political successors of Nelson Mandela lost their way and South Africa lost the moral high ground. An eyewitness account of the colourful court of President Thabo Mbeki, this authoritative memoir reveals and explains while remaining balanced and fair in its judgements."--Richard Dowden
"Gripping in its blow-by-blow account of how international arms companies corrupted South Africa's young democracy, and heartbreaking in its portrayal of an honest politician's attempt to keep his government clean, "After the Party" is an enthralling read."--Andrew Cockburn
"This important and brave book illustrates the extent to which South Africa's multi-billion-dollar arms deal has undermined the rule of law, accountability and constitutionality in the country. It provides compelling evidence that corruption linked to the deal and the mishandling of the AIDS pandemic marked the point at which our young democracy lost its moral compass. It also speaks to the virtues of a transparent, accountable politics of principle
