There is no morality left but that of the tiger: brute force.

It is 1948.
The Afrikaaner Nationalists are poised to introduce the racist policy of apartheid into South Africa. Their plans include the conversion of District Six in Cape Town into an exclusively white residential disctrict, and the removal of its current residents. As profiteers and politicians converge upon this slum area, its threatened residents valiantly put up a fight. Into it is drawn Henry Naidoo, the highly principled yet gentle Indian lawyer, who realizes tragically that the struggle against apartheid is no ordinary fight for justice. It calls for a brutality he is not equipped with.

This novel is a revised, new-format edition of Price, of which the critics said:

"The atmosphere of the novel is perfect..." - Alan Paton

"... tragically moving" - George Woodcock

"... imrpessed and showed me a side of South Africa I know very little about." - Patrick White, Nobel Laureate

Reshard Gool was born in England of South African parents, and later moved to Canada where he was publisher, author and professor before he died in 1988. He is the author of The Nemesis Casket, a modern baroque novel, and several volumes of poems including In Medusa's Eye.
