Pamphlet with the address by President Nelson Mandela at the funeral of Joe Slovo, 15 January, 1995. Mandela says we are assembled to mourn the passing of a leader, a patriot, a father, a fighter, a negotiator, an internationalist, a theoretician and an organizer; indeed, it is the combination of all these qualities so splendidly in one individual, which made Comrade Joe Slovo the great African revolutionary that he was; men and women of rare qualities are few and hard to come by; and when they depart, the sense of loss is made the more profound and the more difficult to manage. The pamphlet discusses Deputy President Thabo Mbeki, Ministers, leaders of the Tri-partite Alliance, SACP.  (South African Community Party), Ruth First, Ismail Meer, Harold Wolpe, Jules Browde, JN Singh, apartheid, MK (uMkhonto we Sizwe), and the ANC (African National Congress).
