Pik Botha and His Times is a biography of Pik Botha, one of South Africa’s most colourful public figures, and at a stage the longest serving Foreign Minister in the world.
“ … a page-turner … certainly one of the most fascinating biographies written by a South African writer concerning a South African politician and can be highly recommended.” – Cyrus Smith, The Star, Pretoria News
“… Even in the broader literature, no book exists that covers these events together in one volume, and certainly not with anything approaching the depth and first-hand insight that Papenfus marshals. Pik Botha and his times is precisely the sort of book any writer on Southern African political history will want to have to hand for reference purposes if nothing else.” – Jamie Miller, University of Cambridge
