Summary
"The period of apartheid was a perilous time in South Africa's history. Rhetorics of resistance examines the tactics of resistance developed by those working for the Weekly Mail and New Nation, two opposition newspapers published in South Africa in the 1980s. The government, in an attempt to crack down on political resistance, had imposed martial law and even greater restrictions on the press. Bryan Trabold examines the writing, legal, and political strategies developed by those working for these newspapers to challenge the censorship restrictions. Despite the many steps taken by the government to silence them, including detaining the editor of the New Nation for two years and temporarily closing both newspapers, the Weekly Mail and New Nation not only continued to publish but also increased their circulations and obtained strong domestic and international support. New Nation ceased publication in 1994 after South Africa made the transition to democracy, but the Weekly Mail, now the Mail & Guardian, continues to publish and remains one of South Africa's most respected newspapers."
