Complicities explores the complicated—even contradictory—position of the highbrow who takes a stand opposed to political regulations and ideologies.

He examines the function of South African intellectuals through taking a look at the paintings of a couple of key figures—both supporters and competitors of apartheid.

Sanders offers unique analyses of largely divergent thinkers: Afrikaner nationalist poet N. P. van Wyk Louw, Drum writer Bloke Modisane, Xhosa novelist A. C. Jordan, Afrikaner dissident Breyten Breytenbach, and Black recognition chief Steve Biko. Drawing on theorists together with Derrida, Sartre, and Fanon, and paying specific recognition to the linguistic intricacy of the literary and political texts thought of, Sanders exhibits how complicity emerges as a trouble for intellectuals around the ideological and social spectrum. via discussions of the colonial intellectuals Olive Schreiner and Sol T. Plaatje and of post-apartheid feminist evaluations of the reality and Reconciliation fee, Complicities finds how sexual distinction joins with race to additional complicate problems with collusion.

Complicities sheds new gentle at the historical past and literature of twentieth-century South Africa because it weighs into debates concerning the position of the highbrow in public life.
