Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0340499591, Paperback)

This is a portrait of the Afrikaaner, Nico Smith, who left a university job and comfortable home to move with his wife to the black township of Mamelodi. He lost friends, status and respectability in the white community but has founded a major centre for reconciliation between whites and blacks - where both Nico and his new friends identify with the shame of Christ's crucifixion, joining him "outside the gate". Rebecca de Saitonge has ghosted the autobiographies of Ken Lancaster and Alec Smith (son of former Rhodesian Prime Minister, Ian Smith).
