"What gives [this memoir] special power is not only the political freedom story, but her honesty about her failures and her fury and her survivor guilt. There's deep commitment here, but not martyrdom... women everywhere will recognize her conflicts about her roles as mother, academic, political activist, lover, and friend." --Booklist"Across Boundaries is an autobiography that captures both a unique heart and a nation's history. No matter where or how each of us lives, Across Boundaries gives us a rare leader who teaches us to teach ourselves." --Gloria Steinem "Stunningly moving and inspiring." --Marian Wright Edelman, president of the Children's Defense Fund "Using adversity to advance the cause of freedom and justice, Mamphela Ramphele created an oasis of humanity and dignity in a wilderness of despair and oppression... This is [her] riveting testimony told in her inimitable way." --Archbishop Desmond Tutu "Ramphele's life and work are illustrative of her indomitable spirit. She makes life better for all who know her and for many others as well." --Frank Thomas, President, Ford Foundation, 1982-1996
