Summary: After years of apartheid, open elections were finally held in South Africa in the 1980s. Alan Paton, anti-apartheid activist and author of the internationally acclaimed novel, Cry the Beloved Country, played a major role in freeing his nation from the yoke of institutionalized prejudice. Here, the author discusses the influences which inspired him to write the novel, and uses passages from it and other works to trace his path from apartheid supporter to anti-apartheid crusader. Paton's own words and those of family and friends reveal the personality of the man who helped launch South Africa's Liberal Party.
