9780143185475: 117 Days: an Account of Confinement and Interrogation Under the South African 90-Day Detention Law (Modern Classics)

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'.
