"This book does three things. It records a momentous struggle for life and health. It pays tribute to the activists whose courage and foresight led to triumph in that struggle. And it poses a challenge to all of us--judges, lawyers, and activists--because the struggle is far from over." --Edwin Cameron, Justice, Constitutional Court of South Africa
