Democrazy records the extraordinary South African journey over the past two decades since the landmark election of 1994 through the eyes of the nation’s best-loved—and by some politicians, most-loathed—cartoonist, Zapiro. A brutally funny record of a momentous and historic time, this collection represents Zapiro’s greatest collection of cartoons, capturing the intensity and the absurdity of South African political and social life—from Mandela and Zuma to Amandla and Nkandla and everything in between.
