Richard Abel has written a detailed account of the use of law to defend the anti-apartheid struggle. Although South Africa lacked both a bill of rights and a tradition of judges reviewing governmental abuses, anti-apartheid lawyers won major victories. Abel discusses 10 case studies including the Alexandra Teason trial and the Moutse and Kwandebele cases, which include challenges to pass laws, black trade unions demands for recognition, censorship, state terror and conscientious objection.
