John Carlin Reviews Justice: A Personal Account by Edwin Cameron

Justice: A Personal AccountVerdict: carrot

The main criticism of Judge Edwin Cameron’s new book, Justice: A Personal Account, is that you are left at the end wanting more — more details about the astonishing life story of a man who has risen to be a Constitutional Court judge, but along the way endured much of the same hardship and discrimination as the most unfortunate of his compatriots.

In a way very few white South Africans who grew up with apartheid can claim to do, he shares, beyond mere empathy, a rare commonality of experience with people from across the whole range of the country’s racial and economic divides.
