THE WORLD THAT WAS OURS

Persephone Books.  £12, CT Bookshop £10.80 (1-903155-401)

HILDA BERNSTEIN’s The World that was Ours, first published in 1967, is a compelling account of the two dramatic years leading up to the Rivonia trial in South Africa in 1964, in which her husband Rusty (who died in 2002) was acquitted, but in which other defendants, including Nelson Mandela, were sentenced to life imprisonment. The Bernsteins became political exiles in Britain.

Ultimately, they counted themselves the luckiest people in the world, having seen their dream of the destruction of apartheid fulfilled. The new reissue is as a high-quality paperback in the distinctive silver-grey covers of Persephone Books.
