Description

In Britain, Michael Scott is one of the forgotten heroes of twentieth-century resistance against injustice and racial discrimination, though there are parts of Southern Africa and India where he is still regarded as a prophet or saint.. His activities got him banned by the governing white regimes of three countries – South Africa, South West Africa (now Namibla) and Nyasaland now Malawi) – in later life he was deported from India, and he served four terms in jail, three in Britain and one in South Africa. Even in his life time he was a mysterious and paradoxical figure, a one-time undercover agent for the Communist Party who became a scourge of totalitarianism, a Gandhianxponent of non-violence who trained as a rear gunner in the RAF, a Christianho enjoyed the company of atheists, a clergyman who berated his own church, modest orator who once held the United Nations spelibound. The Church of England hierarchy accorded him little honour compared with Trevor Huddleston and Canon John Collins, yet both men regarded him as their inspiration. The authors reveal that Scott did more than triumph over racial tyranny and abuse.
