||An impressive mythology - both positive and negative - envelops Thabo Mbeki, the South African president who succeeded Nelson Mandela 1999. Key questions arise: Does he have an ideology? If so, what informs it, and how does it translate into practice? Has Mbeki, as president, managed to capture and articulate a clear vision, and a sense of collective values? Does he offer the leadership South Africa needs?
The book provides a comprehensive study of Mbeki's leadership and its implications for South Africa's future.
