    schema:reviewBody ""Unfinished Business pulls back the curtain on the 'political miracle' of the new South Africa to reveal some of the hidden history of its apartheid past: how the Afrikaner Broederband (the secret society to which every president, prime minister, senior military and police officer belonged) operated; the murderous activities of the South African security forces in Transkei; the story of Dumisa Ntsebeza, anti-apartheid activist, torture victim, political prisoner, teacher and human rights lawyer, who was cynically implicated in a massacre in an attempt to derail the Truth and Reconciliation Commission; the citation of former president F.W. de Klerk as a defendant in a civil action for murder at exactly the moment he was travelling to Oslo to collect a Nobel peace prize. It also blows open the myth that the Truth and Reconciliation Commission uncovered this hidden history. In fact, most of the thirty-three-year mandate of the Commission was ignored. Behind a facade of time constraints and managerial shortcomings, some intended investigations never proceeded, others were bungled. Most importantly, no serious examination was made of the system that gave rise to some of the most horrific racist social engineering of modern times."--Jacket." ;
