Title: Side by Side: The Autobiography of Helen Joseph
Description: (Johannesburg: Ad. Donker, 1986). . 222 x 152 mm; laminated pictorial wraps; pp. (viii) + 249, incl. index; plates. Cover slightly sunned and curled; scattered light foxing. Good condition. "Helen Joseph was one of the most well-known South African women to campaign against apartheid. Her autobiography was originally published on her 81st birthday and is a worthy successor to her two earlier books, If This be Treason (1963) and Tomorrow's Sun (1966). One of the accused in the infamous Treason Trial of the 1950s, and the first person to be placed under house arrest, she continued despite bannings, jail and police harassment to campaign tirelessly for freedom and justice for all people in South Africa. This autobiography was originally published in England in 1986 and covers her eventful life until that time. She died on 25 December 1992, in the Johannesburg Hospital after a long illness, and was buried in Soweto, happy in the knowledge that Nelson Mandela had been released and that a new dispensation was in sight for all the people of her beloved country.".
