Summary Nothing less than a miracle: South Africa's transformation from apartheid oppression to non-racial democracy. This is the story of that miracle - told, for the first time, from South Africa's earliest years to the election of Nelson Mandela as president of the country which once imprisoned him for life. Peter Hain is uniquely placed to tell the story. His childhood was spent under apartheid. His parents were harassed, jailed, banned and, finally, forced into exile. In Britain Peter Hain became one of the leaders of the international struggle to defeat apartheid, returning in 1994 to witness the birth of a new South Africa, full of hope. Sing the Beloved Country is a beautifully written and moving testimony to all who fought to defeat what Peter Hain describes as the 'absolute tyranny'
