More About Tomorrow Is Another Country by Allister Haddon Sparks
 
 
 
Overview
This book is an extraordinary account from South Africa's premier journalist of the negotiating process that led to majority rule. Tomorrow Is Another Country tells the story of the behind-the-scenes collaborations that started in 1985 with an astonishing series of secret jailhouse meetings between Kobie Coetsee, then minister of justice, and his prisoner, Nelson Mandela. Within a year clandestine negotiations involved senior government officials, intelligence agents, and representatives of the outlawed African National Congress; they met secretly in a hospital room, the Palace Hotel in Lucerne, Switzerland, a fishing hideaway, even a gamepark lodge. All the while, President F. W. de Klerk assured his constituent that white rule would stay. Sparks shows how the key players, who began with little reason to trust one another, developed friendships that later made it possible for them to work together to end apartheid. He concludes with a vivid assessment of the problems facing South Africa in the new era.
