I have long been a fan of David Christian. In Origin Story, he elegantly weaves evidence and insights from many scientific and historical disciplines into a single, accessible historical narrative' - Bill Gates

This is the epic story of the universe and our place in it, from 13.8 billion years ago to the remote future How did we get from the Big Bang to today's staggering complexity, in which seven billion humans are connected into networks powerful enough to transform the planet? And why, in comparison, are our closest primate relatives reduced to near-extinction?

Big History creator David Christian gives the answers in a mind-expanding cosmological detective story told on the grandest possible scale. He traces how, during eight key thresholds, the right conditions have allowed new forms of complexity to arise, from stars to galaxies, Earth to homo sapiens, agriculture to fossil fuels. This last mega-innovation gave us an energy bonanza that brought huge benefits to mankind, yet also threatens to shake apart everything we have created.

This global origin story is one that we could only begin to tell recently, thanks to the underlying unity of modern knowledge. Panoramic in scope and thrillingly told, Origin Story reveals what we learn about human existence when we consider it from a universal scale.

Basic mathematics for economics students - Theory and applications
Economic theories can be expressed in words, numbers, graphs and symbols. The existing traditional economics textbooks cover all four methods, but the general focus is often more on writing about the theory and methods, with few practical examples.
With an increasing number of universities having introduced mathematical economics at undergraduate level, Basic mathematics
for economics students aims to fill this gap in the field.

Basic mathematics for economics students begins with a comprehensive chapter on basic mathematical concepts and methods (suitable for self-study, revision or tutorial purposes) to ensure that students have the necessary foundation. The book is written in an accessible style and is extremely practical. Numerous mathematical economics examples and exercises are provided as well as fully worked solutions using numbers, graphs and symbols.

Contents include the following:
• Linear and non-linear mathematics
• Keynesian model of the economy
• Differential calculus
• Matrices
• Basic mathematics of finance
• Partial differential calculus
• Integral calculus
• Linear programming

Basic mathematics for economics students is aimed at all economics students. It focuses on quantitative aspects and especially complements the three highly popular theoretical economics textbooks, Understanding microeconomics, Understanding macroe- conomics and Economics for South African students, all written by Philip Mohr and published by Van Schaik Publishers.

It is the late 1980s. Serious allegations surface against three prominent National Party cabinet ministers, one of them the second-most powerful man in the land. They are, it is said, regularly abusing young boys on an island just off the coast of Port Elizabeth.
From opposite ends of South Africa, a brave cop and a driven journalist investigate. Mark Minnie and Chris Steyn independently uncover evidence of a dark secret. But the case only surfaces briefly before it disappears completely.
Thirty years later, the two finally connect the dots to expose this shocking story of criminality, cover-ups and official complicity in the rape and possible murder of children, most of them vulnerable and black.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS
MARK MINNIE is a former cop who worked as a Narcotics Bureau officer for the South African Police during the 1980s. He left South Africa for England in 2007, and acquired a CELTA qualification for teaching English as a foreign language through Cambridge University in London. Shortly thereafter he began working as an English examiner for Cambridge University and the British Council in China. Tragically, Mark was found dead on Tuesday 14 August 2018 (1 week after the release of the book) in Port Elizabeth.

CHRIS STEYN is a writer and former journalist. Over the years she has worked for the Rand Daily Mail, The Star and the Cape Times. In 1986 she went into exile to avoid imprisonment for refusing to testify against a source. When she returned to South Africa, she was arrested and tried for protesting against an apartheid government proclamation that drastically curtailed press freedom. Chris later became editor of the investigative unit of the Independent Newspapers group. She is the proud co-owner of a bookshop in the seaside village she now calls home.

Dit is die laat tagtigerjare. Ernstige aantygings teen drie prominente NP-ministers doen die ronde. Een van die drie is, naas die staatshoof, die magtigste man in Suid-Afrika.
'n Waagmoedige polisieman en 'n vreeslose joernalis ondersoek die gerugte dat jong seuns op 'n eiland aan die kus van Port Elizabeth misbruik word. Mark Minnie en Chris Steyn kom onafhanklik van mekaar af op dieselfde donker geheim. Maar die saak kry net kortstondig aandag voordat dit doodgesmoor word en verdwyn.
Dertig jaar later sit Steyn en Minnie hul bewyse bymekaar en lig die sluier oor dié skokkende gebeure - 'n verhaal van misdaad, toesmeerdery en amptelike medepligtigheid in die verkragting, en moontlik selfs moord, van weerlose kinders.

OOR DIE OUTEURS
MARK MINNIE is 'n voormalige polisieman wat in die 1980's by die Suid-Afrikaanse Polisie (SAP) se Narkotikaburo as speurder gewerk het. Sedert hy Suid-Afrika in 2007 verlaat het, het hy 'n CELTA-onderwyssertifikaat deur die Universiteit van Cambridge in Londen verwerf. Daarna het hy vir die Universiteit van Cambridge en die British Council in China as Engelse eksaminator gewerk. Tans werk hy as 'n Engelsonderwyser by die Universiteit van Guangzhou in China.
Mark Minnie se liggaam is in Port Elizabeth gevind op 14 Augustus 2018, 'n week nadat die boek vrygestel is.

CHRIS STEYN is 'n ondersoekende skrywer en joernalis. Sy het oor die jare vir die Rand Daily Mail, The Star en die Cape Times gewerk. Sy was redakteur van die ondersoekende joernalistiekspan van sestien koerante in die Independent Newspapers-groep. Nadat sy geweier het om teen een van haar bronne te getuig, is sy noodgedwonge in ballingskap om gevangenisstraf in Suid-Afrika vry te spring. Terug in Suid-Afrika is sy in hegtenis geneem en aangekla omdat sy protes aangeteken het teen 'n apartheidsproklamasie wat media-vryheid drasties ingeperk het. Sy is die trotse mede-eienaar en bestuurder van 'n boekwinkel op die kusdorp waar sy tans woon.

What can one word do? If used correctly, it can make us laugh and make us cry. With Melusi's Everyday Zulu, Melusi Tshabalala has been demonstrating the power of a single word. Every single day (except Sundays), he posts a single Zulu word on his Facebook profile accompanied by a left-field explanation and examples of its use. His unique writing style, wonky sense of humour, frank political commentary and razor-sharp social observations give his readers a one-of-a-kind insight into not only isiZulu but the world Melusi inhabits, as a 21st century Zulu man.

Within a few short months, Melusi's Everyday Zulu has built up a huge following. His fans love him for his honesty and commitment to pointing out subtle and overt forms of prejudice and racism. He holds up a mirror that shows South African society in all its flaws but also its sheer humanity. He makes us laugh at ourselves and with each other.

In The Chapter We Wrote, Len Kalane, former editor of the newspaper, tells not only the story of City Press, but also a tale of the stories and events that shaped contemporary South Africa.

Kalane traces the birth of City Press in the 1950s and the early days of the newspaper, along with its iconic sister publication, Drum magazine. He details the role that Naspers, who bought the paper in the 1980s, and the erstwhile apartheid communication machinery played behind the scenes in an attempt to reconcile two constituencies - Afrikaner and black nationalist - and to move South Africa out of its political conundrum and towards a negotiated, peaceful settlement.

The book is in memory of author and journalist Percy Qoboza, and also incorporates a selection of his columns. It brings vividly to life the newsrooms of an iconic South African brand, and will be useful to students, academics and the interested lay reader.

Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow
From the author of the number one bestseller Sapiens .

Sapiens showed us where we came from. Homo Deus shows us where we're going. War is obsolete. You are more likely to commit suicide than be killed in conflict. Famine is disappearing. You are at more risk of obesity than starvation. Death is just a technical problem. Equality is out - but immortality is in.

What does our future hold? Yuval Noah Harari, author of the bestselling phenomenon Sapiens envisions a not-too-distant world in which we face a new set of challenges.

Homo Deus explores the projects, dreams and nightmares that will shape the twenty-first century - from overcoming death to creating artificial life. It asks the fundamental questions: Where do we go from here? And how will we protect this fragile world from our own destructive powers?

'Homo Deus will shock you. It will entertain you. Above all, it will make you think in ways you had not thought before ' - Daniel Kahneman, author of Thinking Fast, and Slow

Where did we come from? Where are we going? Homo sapiens is the most successful, the most widespread and the most influential species ever to walk the Earth. In the blink of an evolutionary eye we have spread around the globe, taken control of Earth's biological and mineral resources, transformed the environment, discovered the secrets of the universe and traveled into space. Yet just 7 million years ago, we were just another species of great ape making a quiet living in the forests of East Africa. We do not know exactly what this ancestor was like, but it was no more likely than a chimpanzee or gorilla to sail across the ocean, write a symphony, invent a steam engine or ponder the meaning of existence. How did we get from there to here? Human Origins recounts the most astonishing evolutionary tale ever told. Discover how our ancestors made the first tentative steps towards becoming human, how we lost our fur but gained language, fire and tools, how we strode out of Africa, invented farming and cities and ultimately created modern civilization - perhaps the only one of its kind in the universe. Meet your long-lost ancestors, the other humans who once shared the planet with us, and learn where the story might end.

Think of a number between one and ten. No, hang on, let's make this interesting. Between zero and infinity. Even if you stick to the whole numbers, there are a lot to choose from - an infinite number in fact. Throw in decimal fractions and infinity suddenly gets an awful lot bigger (is that even possible?) And then there are the negative numbers, the imaginary numbers, the irrational numbers like pi which never end. It literally never ends. The world of numbers is indeed strange and beautiful. Among its inhabitants are some really notable characters - pi, e, the 'imaginary' number i and the famous golden ratio to name just a few. Prime numbers occupy a special status. Zero is very odd indeed: is it a number, or isn't it? How Numbers Work takes a tour of this mind-blowing but beautiful realm of numbers and the mathematical rules that connect them. Not only that, but take a crash course on the biggest unsolved problems that keep mathematicians up at night, find out about the strange and unexpected ways mathematics influences our everyday lives, and discover the incredible connection between numbers and reality itself.

Philosophy developed as a form of rational inquiry practised in the cities of Ancient Greece. It involves the pursuit of wis- dom and is both the predecessor and the complement of science, developing those issues that underlie science, and pon- dering those questions that are beyond the scope of science. In spite of a reputation as a difficult and abstract subject, philosophy is inseparable from our daily life. It has to do with our ideas of ourselves and the universe, and understanding the self and our existential space in the world. Philosophy in education and research maps the relationship between philos- ophy and research with the objective of advancing critical thinking skills.

Philosophy in education and research aims to demystify philosophy for education students at all levels of study. Taking a practical, problem-solving approach, it sets out terminology and the origin of theories in the education curriculum within the context of South Africa's history and societal change.

Contents include the following:
• Paradigms, theoretical frameworks and conceptual frameworks in educational research
• An Afrocentric paradigm in education and research
• Comparative perspectives in philosophy of education in Africa
• Sociological imperatives for education and the theory of change
• Philosophy of disability: African perspectives
• Distance education and the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs)
• Quality assurance in distance education and ethical imperatives
• Supporting students' transition through the academic journey

Philosophy in education and research is aimed at students and researchers across disciplines who want to understand the philosophical underpinnings of education and research.

South Africa has a broad and complex history that has greatly influenced the unique, diverse and democratic country that we know today. One of the many challenges South Africa faces is crime, with those crimes committed by youthful offenders being the most distressing - it is sadly not unusual to hear of youths who have been involved in murder, rape or robbery. In addition, sexual offences among children are occurring more frequently, and the number of child victims of abuse and domestic violence is also on the rise. An added and escalating danger for children is falling prey to ruthless traffickers and being used as sex workers or slaves. Despite specific laws having been promulgated to protect them, many children are still growing up in unforgiving environments that never allow them the opportunity to develop morally according to the prescriptions of a democratic society.


Child and youth misbehaviour in South Africa addresses the complex and poorly understood phenomenon of youth misbehaviour. It discusses and analyses various theories on the nature and causes of deviant behaviour, and assesses them critically with regard to their applicability to South Africa. The book presents the relevant legal processes pertaining to young people, and reinforces theoretical explanations with research and real-world examples. The female youth offender is also discussed in depth in this edition.

Contents include the following:

· The difficulty in demarcating the position of children in South Africa

· The complex diversity in the various ethnic and racial groupings in South Africa

· The local risk factors and international influences associated with youth misbehaviour

· The effective processing and treatment of youthful offenders by the South African criminal justice system

· Preventive measures based on constitutional guidelines

Child and youth misbehaviour in South Africa is aimed at enabling both practitioners and students to address the plight of the South African youth in a constructive way so they can become part of creating a safer South Africa for all its people.

Professor Christiaan Bezuidenhout holds a BA (Criminology), BA Honours (Criminology), MA (Criminology), DPhil (Criminology), as well as an MSc (Criminology and Criminal Justice) from the University of Oxford. He is currently attached to the Department of Social Work and Criminology, University of Pretoria, where he teaches psychocriminology, criminal justice and contemporary criminology at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

The field of human resource management (HRM) has grown significantly over the last 50 years. Although HRM is relatively new to the South African business environment, many companies started employing personnel managers (later to become known as HR managers) to head up personnel departments during the 1980s, primarily to help employers deal with the industrial action of trade unions. Their role has since expanded way beyond that. These days, HR managers play an important role in ensuring that companies utilise their human resources optimally. Introduction to human resource management provides a basic understanding of the principles of HRM and how it contributes to achieving organisational goals.

Introduction to human resource management examines the essential aspects of the practice of HRM in the modern workplace. Essential theory is supplemented with practical guidelines for managing employees as well as other general functions in an organisation.

Contents include the following:
• Macro-environmental factors
• Workforce planning and talent management
• Recruitment and selection
• Induction, orientation and onboarding
• Performance management and appraisal
• Human resource development
• Management, leadership and motivation
• Remuneration
• Employee wellness, health and safety
• Laws regulating the human resource management function

Introduction to Human Resource Management is aimed at undergraduate students at further and higher education institutions within
South Africa as well as managers and human resource practitioners.
