In prison you see only the moves of the enemy. Prison is the hardest place to fight a battle.'

117 Days is Ruth First's personal account of her detention under the iniquitous '90-day' law of 1963. There was no warrant, no charge and no trial - only suspicion.

This sparsely written and unique record tells of her experiences of solitary confinement, constant interrogation and instantaneous re-arrest on release - lightened by humorous portraits of governors, matrons, wardresses and interrogators, seen as the tools of the police state.

Product Description:

Ruth First's "117 Days" recounts the harrowing war of nerves conducted between a Ninety-Day detainee and her South African Special Branch interrogators. Her sparsely written and unique record was first published - as her husband, Joe Slovo, remarked - so that it 'would help focus world attention on the plight of the growing number of victims of the regime's physical and mental torture chamber'.

Product Description:

Good condition. Ships from our London bookshop. Dispatch within 2 days via Royal Mail.
