— Appears in: IJAS , no. 6 2013; (p. 90-106)
'Autobiographies from the mainstream of exceptionally successful persons have been common for long, but of late the stories of 'the failures, to whose lot neither fortunes nor stirring adventures fell' (Bennet and Strauss) have generated tremendous interest in the academy and general readers. These writings are implicit or explicit political documents and campaigns demanding freedom, just, equality and land rights.' (90)
