"Goldberg's memoir is notable in two respects. First, it provides new details about the operations of the ANC. Second, Goldberg spent more time in jail than any other white political prisoner, and his prison chapters convey a powerful sense of how political prisoners survived and even developed. He also writes frankly about the psychological and emotional costs of long-term imprisonment." -- Colin Bundy, author of Govan Mbeki
" A Life for Freedom is a wonderfully written account of Denis Goldberg's life in South Africa's freedom struggle and adds depth and understanding to a number of issues: the contributions of white dissidents to non-racial organizing, the experiences of white political prisoners, the decision to turn to armed struggle, the global anti-apartheid movement, and post-apartheid South Africa." -- Robert Edgar, Professor of African Studies at Howard University, is co author of African Apocalypse: the story of Nontetha Nkwenkwe, a Twentieth Century South African Prophet
