Since the inauguration of Nelson Mandela as South Africa's president in May 1994, Tony Leon has led the Democratic Party (DP) in Parliament. In four years he has taken the DP from the edge of political extinction to the centre of political debate and massively increased voter support. He has helped turn the party around and contributed significantly to the current political dialogue on the issues and challenges concerning the new South Africa.

This book contains a selection of Tony Leon's speeches and writings, covering the critical issues involved in the transition from apartheid to the new democratic order. He speaks and writes with style, insight and with no-holds-barred. He articulates the ingredients now required for this country to become a winning world-class nation, at peace with both itself and the new global order.

The entries in this volume were selected and edited by Professor David Welsh, recently retired Professor of Southern African Studies at the University of Cape Town, who has himself written and published extensively about South African politics and the politics of divided societies.
