EDDIE DANIELS’ autobiography, THERE AND BACK: ROBBEN ISLAND, 1964-1979
was published in 1998. DANIELS was a member of the LIBERAL PARTY OF SOUTH AFRICA (LPSA) before becoming a founding member of the AFRICAN RESISTANCE MOVEMENT (ARM). After being banned for 5 years in 1963, he was arrested and detained for 92 days in 1964 before being sentenced to 15 years imprisonment in ROBBEN ISLAND.
After his release in 1979, he was under house arrest for another 5 years.
As is the case with so many of the heroes of the struggle in South Africa,
an ordinary life became an extraordinary one.
