The Resurrection of Winnie Mandela, the new book from acclaimed author and public commentator Sisonke Msimang, will be out from Jonathan Ball Publishers on 24 October 2018.
The Resurrection of Winnie Mandela is an astute examination of one of South Africa’s most controversial political figures. It charts the rise and fall—and rise, again—of a woman who not only battled the apartheid regime, but the patriarchal character of the society that moulded her. In telling Ma Winnie’s story, Sisonke Msimang demonstrates the vital link between reclaiming the lives of one complex woman, and activism aimed at restoring the dignity of all women.
