'Wilfred Burchett has been covering revolutions and wars for more than thirty-five years - first in China and Korea, then in Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam, and now in Southern Africa. Wherever Burchett goes he gives us the story and the inside information from "the other side". He talks to the revolutionaries themselves, to the leaders, footsoldiers and peasants and allows them to explain how and why they do what they do. Despite the fact that Wilfred Burchett's politics differs fundamentally from that of men such as Henry Kissinger, Averell Harriman or C. L. Sulzberger they have turned to him to find out what the other side is thinking. His credentials and the trust he enjoys in all parts of the world are extraordinary - and mostly because his predictions, which are rendered in nobody's service, have been so accurate over the years.
In Southern Africa Stands Up we find out what really happened and what is about to happen in Africa - the awakening continent.'
