“A brilliant and important book that should be read by everybody interested in the truth behind the ‘truth and reconciliation’ hype of the new South Arica. In the finest tradtiions of fearless, independent journalism, Terry Bell reveals the cover-ups and charades that allowed the shock troops of apartheid to get away with a crime against humanity.” — John Pilger

“Incredibly illuminating … woven together into a narrative with great skill.” – Mahmood Mamdani

“During the apartheid era in South Africa, the ruthless security apparatus of the state committed crimes against humanity, invaded and destabilised neighbouring states, stymied the future of generations of blavk Africans; and they continue to wield considerable power. Unfinished Business is a startling and revealing account of the rise and fall of a doomed system of racial domination that raises questions about the fate of the new South Africa.” — Linton Kwesi Johnson

“A well-researched and brilliant expose of the apartheid system.” — City Press, South Africa

“A closely argued critique of the hearings of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.” — New Internationalist, 1 April 2004

      The hardcover (Verso) edition should still be available via Amazon, but is now out of print, as is the earlier, RedWorks p/b.

  3. Hi Terry,

    I heard you on 702 and had to find you! you were brilliant! do you do talks? Is there another platform where I could ask you questions ie you referred to “this system” based on competition. I Picked up on a certain disdain for the said system, could I get your views on the ideal alternative in your opinion. Fascinating stuff.
