BADAT, SALEEM.
The Forgotten People. Political Banishment Under Apartheid.
Jacana 2012. 352pp illustrated large format paperback. No inscriptions. a VG copy. ISBN: 9781431404797 During the apartheid years the government employed many weapons against its opponents: imprisonment, banning, detention, assassination, and banishment. In a practice reminiscent of Tsarist and Soviet Russia, a large number of 'enemies of the state' were banished to remote areas, far from their homes, communities and followers. Here their existence became 'a slow torture of the soul', a kind of social death. This is the first study of an important but hitherto neglected group of opponents of apartheid, set in a global, historical and comparative perspective. It looks at the reasons why people were banished, their lives in banishment and the efforts of a remarkable group of activists led by Helen Joseph to assist them.

Records a 1923 trip to Petra, a 1927 trip to Siwa, Europe in 1929, Hong Kong & Japan in 1937, and South Africa in 1936. The Niven family lived on the farm 'Amanzi' and this is covered. The Bader family came to South Africa to live after the war and much of the writing throws sidelights upon those times.

Cecily Niven was the daughter of Sir James Percy Fitzpatrick, known as Percy FitzPatrick. He was a South African author, politician, mining financier and pioneer of the fruit industry. He authored the classic children's book, Jock of the Bushveld. As a politician, he defended British Imperial interests before and during the Anglo-Boer War. He was also responsible for the creation of the two minute silence observed on Armistice Day.
