In the company of Assata Shakur and William Blum

The website of my wonderful South African publishers, BestRed, an imprint of HSRC Press, the publishing arm of the Human Sciences Research Council, features my previous book, Drinking With Ghosts on their website alongside two other publications, Black Liberation Army co-founder and former Black Panther Assata Shakur's "Assata: The FBI's Most Wanted Woman", and William Blum's "America's Deadliest Export: Democracy":

The parent HSRC Press also produces a wonderful Voices of Liberation series on African & African Diaspora liberation movement thought-leaders including Patrice Lumumba (Leo Zelig), Frantz Fanon (Leo Zelig) - both of which I have on my bookshelf - plus Ruth First (Don Pinnock), Albert Luthuli (Gerald Pillay), Steve Biko (Derek Hook), and Chris Hani (Gregory Houston & James Ngculu). As an aside, Jacana puts out a series that includes biographies of Thomas Sankara (Ernest Harsch), which I am currently reading, and Steve Biko (Lindy Wilson).
