John Carlin on "Playing the Enemy"

September 20, 2009

Journalist John Carlin talks with Steve Paulson about the 1995 rugby tournament that changed South Africa's history. His book on the subject is called "Playing the Enemy: Nelson Mandela and the Game That Made A Nation." Carlin explains how Mandela got South African Blacks to buy into a game that had always been perceived as a symbol of white oppression.
