#1 New York Times Bestseller 'Significant...The book is both instructive and surprisingly moving.' -The New York Times Ray Dalio, one of the world's most successful investors and entrepreneurs, shares the unconventional principles that he's developed, refined, and used over the past forty years to create unique results in both life and business-and which any person or organization can adopt to help achieve their goals. In 1975, Ray Dalio founded an investment firm, Bridgewater Associates, out of his two-bedroom apartment in New York City. Forty years later, Bridgewater has made more money for its clients than any other hedge fund in history and grown into the fifth most important private company in the United States, according to Fortune magazine. Dalio himself has been named to Time magazine's list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Along the way, Dalio discovered a set of unique principles that have led to Bridgewater's exceptionally effective culture, which he describes as 'an idea meritocracy that strives to achieve meaningful work and meaningful relationships through radical transparency.' It is these principles, and not anything special about Dalio-who grew up an ordinary kid in a middle-class Long Island neighborhood-that he believes are the reason behind his success. In Principles, Dalio shares what he's learned over the course of his remarkable career. He argues that life, management, economics, and investing can all be systemized into rules and understood like machines. The book's hundreds of practical lessons, which are built around his cornerstones of 'radical truth' and 'radical transparency,' include Dalio laying out the most effective ways for individuals and organizations to make decisions, approach challenges, and build strong teams. He also describes the innovative tools the firm uses to bring an idea meritocracy to life, such as creating 'baseball cards' for all employees that distill their strengths and weaknesses, and employing computerized decision-making systems to make believability-weighted decisions. While the book brims with novel ideas for organizations and institutions, Principles also offers a clear, straightforward approach to decision-making that Dalio believes anyone can apply, no matter what they're seeking to achieve. Here, from a man who has been called both 'the Steve Jobs of investing' and 'the philosopher king of the financial universe' (CIO magazine), is a rare opportunity to gain proven advice unlike anything you'll find in the conventional business press.

Sociopolitical occurrences in recent years have, if anything, brought to the fore the close relationship between developments in the labour market and progress on the socio-econo-political terrain. The ideological divides in South Africa are especially apparent in the labour market, and these compound the basic conflict between the objectives of protecting basic worker rights on the one hand, and increasing economic growth on the other. The South African labour market contains an abundance of information about labour markets in general and the South African labour market in particular.

The South African labour market has a down-to-earth and practical approach. It considers the evidence and identifies some urgent discussion points about the sensitivity of employment to economic growth. Three appendix chapters deal extensively with the impact of globalisation on the labour market, how other countries have managed the challenges of globalisation, and consensus-seeking institutions such as Nedlac. Questions and study suggestions are included at the end of each chapter.

Contents include the following:
• Unique characteristics of the labour market
• Labour supply and labour demand
• Employment in the formal and informal sectors
• Wages and the cost of labour
• Unions, collective bargaining and minimum wages
• Productivity and labour market flexibility
• Unemployment and active labour market policy for job creation
• Human capital and the demand for skilled workers
• Inequalities and discrimination

The South African labour market is aimed at economics students as well as general readers wanting an overview of the South African labour market.

Comic, dark and insightful, What Happened? is Hanif Kureishi's new collection of essays and fiction. No topic is too fringe or too mainstream for this insatiable-and much-loved-author. From social media to the ancient classics, from appraisals of David Bowie to Georges Simenon to Keith Jarrett, this is the latest literary 'event' in a unique body of work that displays Kureishi's characteristic boundless curiosity and wit. What Happened? is as much about the very fact of Kureishi's catholic appetite for culture as his observations and insights themselves, and any new book in his oeuvre is a justification for celebration.

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.

Showcasing the work of more than 200 women writers of African descent, this major international collection celebrates their contributions to literature and international culture.

Twenty-five years ago, Margaret Busby's groundbreaking anthology Daughters of Africa illuminated the 'silent, forgotten, underrated voices of black women' (The Washington Post). Published to international acclaim, it was hailed as 'an extraordinary body of achievement… a vital document of lost history' (The Sunday Times).

New Daughters of Africa continues that mission for a new generation, bringing together a selection of overlooked artists of the past with fresh and vibrant voices that have emerged from across the globe in the past two decades, from Antigua to Zimbabwe and Angola to the USA. Key figures join popular contemporaries in paying tribute to the heritage that unites them. Each of the pieces in this remarkable collection demonstrates an uplifting sense of sisterhood, honours the strong links that endure from generation to generation, and addresses the common obstacles women writers of colour face as they negotiate issues of race, gender and class, and confront vital matters of independence, freedom and oppression.

Custom, tradition, friendships, sisterhood, romance, sexuality, intersectional feminism, the politics of gender, race, and identity—all and more are explored in this glorious collection of work from over 200 writers. New Daughters of Africa spans a wealth of genres—autobiography, memoir, oral history, letters, diaries, short stories, novels, poetry, drama, humour, politics, journalism, essays and speeches—to demonstrate the diversity and remarkable literary achievements of black women who remain under-represented, and whose works continue to be under-rated, in world culture today.

Featuring women across the diaspora, New Daughters of Africa illuminates the richness and cultural history of this original continent and its enduring influence, while reflecting our own lives and issues today. Bold and insightful, brilliant in its intimacy and universality, this essential volume honours the talents of African daughters and the inspiring legacy that connects them—and all of us.

Vanweë hulle posisie in die kontakgebied tussen 'ras' en klas is huiswerkers perfek geposisioneer om die belangrikste tolke en vertalers in die Suid-Afrikaanse samelewing te wees; tussen ryk en arm, stad en platteland, werkgewers en werknemers. Dekades lank was huiswerkers die enigste swart en bruin mense wat wit stedelinge enigsins van naderby geken en in hulle huise toegelaat het - en op min plekke vind hierdie gegewe so sterk neerslag as in die Suid-Afrikaanse letterkunde. Ongeveer tien jaar ná die einde van apartheid het Ena Jansen na huiswerkers se spore in Suid-Afrikaanse stadsboeke begin soek.
Soos familie:Stedelike huiswerkers in Suid-Afrikaanse tekste gee via die letterkunde op boeiende wyse insig in die omstandighede van 'die bediende' as 'n sosiale en ekonomiese instelling wat so ver terugstrek as die eerste jare van die vestiging van die Kaap. Vanuit hierdie oogpunt gesien, is die indiensneming van bediendes en alles wat daarmee saamhang een van die oudste praktyke in die Suid-Afrikaanse geskiedenis, miskien selfs 'n historiese konstante wat alle ander veranderinge oorleef het.
Die boek is 'n verkenning van die rol en betekenis van ongeveer 'n honderd huisbediendekarakters in stadsboeke uit 'n groot deel van die twintigste eeu en daarná - weliswaar teen die agtergrond van sosiologiese gegewens, maar veral ook met die voortdurende besef dat tekste die mag het om in te werk op die werklikheid.

Labour MP for Tottenham David Lammy investigates the modern concept of 'tribes' and how New Tribalism has pernicious effects on the health of our society. Tribes will explore ways in which we can challenge and neuter New Tribalism, distinguishing between the 'good' sort of tribalism - the patriotism that is inclusive and open to newcomers, the ethnic or religious pride that celebrates a particular culture or faith tradition rather than denigrates others as inferior, the 'Spirit of Dunkirk' that saw ordinary people come together and do extraordinary things - from the harmful tribalism that excludes, denigrates and divides.

It was an upbringing in many ways normal. A loving home, shared with squabbling siblings, overseen by devoted parents. Yet in other ways it was the precise opposite: a revolving door of TV camera crews and documentary makers, a world of extreme discipline, of siblings vanishing in the night. Megan Phelps-Roper was raised in the Westboro Baptist Church - the fire-and-brimstone religious sect at once aggressively homophobic and anti-Semitic, rejoiceful for AIDS and natural disasters, and notorious for its picketing the funerals of American soldiers. From her first public protest, aged five, to her instrumental role in spreading the church's invective via social media, her formative years brought their difficulties. In November 2012, at the age of twenty-six, she left the church, her family, and her life behind.

Daraya lies on the fringe of Damascus, just southwest of the Syrian Capital. Yet it lives in another world. Besieged by Syrian government forces since 2011, its people were deprived of food, bombarded by bombs and missiles, and shot at by snipers. Its buildings lay in ruins; office buildings, shops and family homes shattered by the constant shelling from government forces. But deep beneath this scene of frightening devastation lay a secret library. No signs marked its presence. While the streets above echoed with rifle fire and shelling, the secret world below was a haven of peace and tranquillity. Books, long rows of them, lined almost every wall and all arranged in well- ordered lines. The secret library was a symbol of hope.

We like to think of ourselves as exceptional beings, but are we really any more special than other animals? Humans are the slightest of twigs on a single family tree that encompasses four billion years, a lot of twists and turns, and a billion species. All of those organisms are rooted in a single origin, with a common code that underwrites our existence. This paradox - that our biology is indistinct from all life, yet we consider ourselves to be special - lies at the heart of who we are. Adam Rutherford explores how many of the things once considered to be exclusively human are not. Evolution has, however, allowed us to develop our culture to a level of complexity that outstrips any other observed in nature.

Spanning four decades, these essays, speeches and meditations interrogate the world around us. They are concerned with race, gender and globalisation. The sweep of American history and the current state of politics. The duty of the press and the role of the artist. Throughout A Mouth Full of Blood our search for truth, moral integrity and expertise is met by Toni Morrison with controlled anger, elegance and literary excellence.

The collection is structured in three parts and these are heart-stoppingly introduced by a prayer for the dead of 9/11, a meditation on Martin Luther King and a eulogy for James Baldwin. Morrison's Nobel lecture, on the power of language, is accompanied by lectures to Amnesty International and the Newspaper Association of America. She speaks to graduating students and visitors to both the Louvre and America's Black Holocaust Museum. She revisits The Bluest Eye, Sula and Beloved; reassessing the novels that have become touchstones for generations of readers.

A Mouth Full of Blood is a powerful, erudite and essential gathering of ideas that speaks to us all.

'To what do we pay greatest allegiance? Family, language group, culture, country, gender? Religion, race? And, if none of these matter, are we urbane, cosmopolitan or simply lonely? In other words, how do we decide where we belong? What convinces us that we do?'
The Alexander Lecture series, 2002
