Shades of Difference by Padraig O'Malley

Book Description

This is the inside story of South Africa's anti-apartheid movement, told through the experiences of its unsung hero. The struggle in South Africa to destroy apartheid was one of the great moral crusades of the last century, and Mac Maharaj played a pivotal role in the liberation movement for nearly four decades. A South African of Indian descent, Maharaj suffered brutal tortures and twelve years of imprisonment on Robben Island with Nelson Mandela. It was Maharaj who smuggled out the manuscript of Mandela's autobiography, and he later served in his government. Based on extensive interviews with Maharaj over the last eleven years and hitherto unavailable documents, Padraig O'Malley's vividly rendered tale will enthrall anyone interested in a true story of heroism and the story of a people's struggle for freedom.

Two-State Delusion by Padraig O'Malley Two-State Delusion, Paperback (July 2016)

"A ... reconciliation expert argues that a two-state solution is no longer a viable path to create lasting peace in Israel and Palestine. Disputes over settlements, the right of return, the rise of Hamas, recognition of Israel as a Jewish state, and other intractable issues have repeatedly derailed peace negotiations"--Provided by publisher.
