'Various attempts have been made to describe the extraordinary events surrounding the Australian cricket 'rebel' 1985-86 and 1986-87 tours of South Africa. but only one man is able to tell the full story. That man is former Australian Test opener Bruce Francis, organiser of the controversial trips which set Australia ablaze with controversy and bitter political exchange.
... a powerful, deeply analytical book that goes well beyond the interplay of sport and politics. He address a nation's shame and poses questions of the individual's rights in a modern democracy.
Love him or hate him, Francis has produced a book that will keep the reader's mind running at peak revs until the final page is turned and the juror's vote is cast.'
