Abstract: A freelance journalist, writer and researcher, Stan Winer is a South African citizen born in 1940. His interest is mainly in politics, international relations and issues relating to Human Rights. His published works have featured in both international and local media. The collection includes a manuscript written by Winer dealing with south African covert operations. This work proposes that the human rights records of the former South African regime should not be judged in isolation of the Cold War, and the Western Society of nations, of which South Africa was a part. Newspaper clippings relating to South African state-sponsored death squads , train violence, and other covert actions perpetrated by the South African government compliment the collection. Another series worth noting is the documentation relating to civil litigation by Stan Winer and others in the British High Court, concerning the defamatory book "Inside BOSS" (Penguin: London, 1981) by Gordon Winter, a self-styled defector from the bureau of State Security. This series includes primary and photocopied documents dealing with "Inside BOSS", together with photographs from the Dutch edition and a comprehensive collection of newspaper clippings concerning the case.
