Early in September 1989, peaceful protest marchers bearing placards proclaiming `the people shall govern' were sprayed with purple dye. A spirited activist seized the initiative and the nozzle from the police and painted Cape Town purple, while an inspired graffitist put the writing on the wall: The purple shall govern! Both handbook and history, this A-Z chronicles the most effective methods of nonviolent action used by South Africans in one of the largest grassroots eruptions of diverse nonviolent strategies employed in a single struggle in human history.

Feature Text: 
Published in 1979, this book goes beyond labeling to explanation, tracing the Dutch Reformed church's' role in shaping South African race relations from the pragmatic multiracialism of the early Cape, the the isolation and racial exclusiveness of the Boer trekkers, to theological rationalizations of apartheid. But parallel to the Dutch Reformed church tradition, Regehr traces the countervailing influence of the multiracial churches, from their championing of 'native rights,' to their subsequent impact on Black nationalism, to their protest, though frequently compromised, against the injustices of the regime.

The issues which have split South Africa politically have also fragmented the Body of Christ. The church's struggle in South Africa, says Alan Paton in his Foreword, has to do with several areas of conflict and tension within the church itself and in its dealing with the world. John W. de Gruchy attempts to unravel the complex story of the role of the church in South Africa, reviewing its divisions in the past, examining its position in the present, and reflecting upon its significance for the future.
