"This is an important project, supporting the claim that even in the oppressive climate of 1980s apartheid South Africa, the local newspapers created or identified certain rhetorical spaces in which to register various forms of verbal resistance."
—Shirley W. Logan, University of Maryland
"The book's central focus is on the strategies—rhetorical, legal, political—that anti-apartheid newspapers employed to report on matters that were prohibited by the government’s strict censorship laws. Trabold presents a well-written, compelling textual analysis alongside good empirical interview material."
—Herman Wasserman, University of Cape Town
