Passive Resistance 1946 - A Selection of Documents compiled by E.S. Reddy & Fatima Meer

11

Passive Resistance 1946 - A Selection of Documents, is a record of the second resistance movements waged by Indians in the country; the first was waged by Gandhi at the beginning of the century. The 1946 Campaign was seminal in the gestation of the anti-apartheid front, at home and abroad. it was the forerunner to the Defiance of Unjust Laws Campaign, organised jointly by the South African Indian Congress and African National Congress; it placed the issue of racism on the sanctions against South Africa. This is the first comprehensive record of that campaign, and fills a crucial gap in our history.
