A searingly honest and detailed account of growing up during the Second World War. Robert Druce’s account of his childhood and youth is a wonderfully written and evocative story. Intelligent and highly inquisitive, but with an over-bearing and ambitious father, Robert describes, in extraordinary detail, the hardships of life in the outskirts of London during the war. An insatiable thirst for knowledge brings him into conflict with the ordered life of a grammar school. Robert’s genius, expressed through his endless fascination for language, is recognised by one far-sighted teacher. This teacher becomes more than a mentor, inspiring Robert, nurturing his skill with words as well as helping him through some of the scrapes with others who were less able to cope with his rebelliousness. As Robert enters his turbulent teenage years, he describes his sexual awakening with uncompromising honesty. As he begins to discover the complexities of personal relationships, he struggles to square his urge for independence with the continuing demands of his parents. On leaving school Robert has to cope with life in the army during National Service and then a brutal introduction to the world of work. He describes with great humour his confrontation with prejudice and suspicion. Robert’s story continues with his studies at university in London, while experiencing the delights and anguish of his first love. After graduating, Robert decides on a career in teaching. Faced with more hostility from pupils and colleagues, he turns again to the brilliance of his own mentor to help him through his initiation into adulthood.

not good. I ran to my mother, who sat blank-faced in Dad's old, green recliner.

My Life in the New South Africa is written by the youth themselves, and gives a unique insight into the thoughts and concerns of South Africans under the age of 30. In 1996 the Quality of Life Monitoring Unit at the University of Natal held a letter-writing contest, and this book is a digest of the responses they received. Young people from across the nation wrote in-shack dwellers and suburban scholars, boarding school pupils and prison inmates. The diversity and distinctiveness of the rainbow nation's youth are represented here. This is their message to their fellow South Africans.

This volume presents perspectives of murder victims' family members, academics, and crime victims' advocates regarding an intensely debated issue about which surprisingly little information exists: the significance of capital punishment to murder victims¿ survivors. The book includes more than twenty chapters that examine a variety of issues concerning these survivors, or co-victims, and the death penalty. These chapters present the personal accounts of victims' family members' experiences with the criminal justice system and examine relevant legal and research issues, including the use of victim impact evidence in capital trials, how the capital punishment process affects co-victims, what is known about the immediate and long-term needs of murder victims' survivors, and how those needs can be addressed.
