In Revolutionary Traveller, John S. Saul draws on a series of his own occasional articles written over a span of forty years which, together with a linking narrative, serve to trace not only his own career as an anti-apartheid and liberation support movement activist in both Canada and southern Africa but also help recount the history of the various struggles in both venues in which he has been directly involved. He thus shapes a unique memoir, capped by some longer summary pieces on the global processes of empire and decolonization that he has witnessed and on the reading, listening, playing and family pleasures that have enlivened his life's passage.

A veteran anti-apartheid and liberation support movement activist in Canada and elsewhere, and longtime campaigner for economic justice in Africa, John S. Saul taught at Toronto's York University for many years and also, cumulatively, for almost a decade, in Africa itself (Tanzania, Mozambique, and South Africa).
