John Collins, Canon of St Paul's Cathedral in London, was the Englishman white South Africans most loved to hate. The organisations founded by Canon Collins, the International Defence and Aid Fund (IDAF) and Christian Action, depended on the work of volunteers across the world. The secrecy with which they operated is why the story of these networks has been virtually unknown until now. North America: Independent Publishers Group; South Africa: HSRC Press
