‘Habib’s Rebels and Rage is a critically important contribution to public discussion about #FeesMustFall for two sets of reasons: firstly, this book is a timely public archiving of how the protests unfolded from a leading and influential vice-chancellor’s perspective; secondly, the book is usefully honest in its offering of some trenchant political, moral and strategic criticism that it develops against a range of prominent actors including student leaders, many academics and even some anti-apartheid activists.’
– Eusebius McKaiser
‘Tacking between personal narratives, political critique and ethnographic field notes, this memoir of the intellect and the soul is written with an infectious energy. It opens new avenues for exploring the paradoxes of our struggles to envision new futures.’
– Achille Mbembe, author of Critique of Black Reason
