For most of its existence, the ANC Youth League has played a
powerful role in the politics of the ANC, and therefore of South
Africa. This book tells the history of the ANC Youth League, from
its formation in 1944 to the present day.
The book explores the radicalising role played by its early
leaders, such as Nelson Mandela, Walter Sisulu and O.R. Tambo; the
formation of the ANC Youth and Students Section in exile, first led
by Thabo Mbeki; the return from exile in the 1990s and the
leadership of Peter Mokaba; the controversies around the
appointment of Julius Malema and his subsequent sacking; and the
absence of Youth League leadership in the #FeesMustFall movement
and current South African politics. Finally, the book considers the
role that the Youth League should play in the future.
This is a fascinating glimpse into a vital and volatile
institution in South African politics.
