Black Economic Empowerment has not had a positive image in the media. This is partly thanks to a few individuals who became megarich overnight, while the majority of black people, who were supposed to benefit, remained poor. One company that did things differently is Brimstone, founded in 1995 by an accountant and an insurance salesman who did not want to leave their community behind. In that same year, they acquired a stake in Oceana, raising initial capital of R3m from community shareholders in the Cape Flats. Founders Fred Robertson and Mustaq Enus-Brey have helmed the longest listed Black company on the JSE since 1998. In that time they have triumphed over financial crisis, resisted hostile takeovers, recovered from poor investments and continued to pull ahead. This is an inspiring story of small beginnings, resilience and a social conscience in business.

Portchie is een van Suid-Afrika se suksesvolste kunstenaars, maar wie is die man wat agter die kleurvolle skilderye skuil? Waar kom die naam Portchie vandaan? En hoe en wanneer het Jan Hendrik Viljoen van die klein dorpie Tweeling in die Vrystaat, aangemeld om die wêreldbekende kunstenaar Portchie te word? Met sy verbysterende sukses kan daar met reg na Portchie verwys word as 'n grensverskuiwende kunstenaar, maar langs die pad was daar oorgenoeg bitterbekke, skerp tonge en suur druiwe. Ten spyte van sommige se kritiek, het hierdie veelvlakkige persona 'n eenvoudige resep wat aanhou om kunsliefhebbers- en versamelaars te betower. Portchie: Van Tweeling tot Trafalgar Square, wat die persoonlike met die kreatiewe versoen, kombineer Portchie se inspirerende verhaal met foto's, staaltjies en selfs resepte. Dit vertel die storie agter die storie: onopgesmuk, sonder tierlantjies, maar met 'n tikkie flair. Portchie se verhaal is een van hoop, van liefde en deernis, en van treffende eenvoud.

Die verstommende storie van 'n sakelegende wat een van Afrika se welvarendste maatskappye uit niks opgebou het. Anton Rupert was 'n Karooseun wat in die Depressie grootgeword het, en dit skaars kon bekostig om te gaan studeer, maar sy Rembrandt groep word uiteindelik ʼn wêreldleier in o.m. luukse goedere. Wat was Rupert se
geheim? Rupert se oorspronklike sienings oor die skepping van werk en welvaart in 'n sukkelende ekonomie is sy blywende nalatenskap met diepgaande lesse vir Suid-Afrika vandag. Sy storie is meer relevant as ooit. Hier vertel die gesoute sakeskrywer Ebbe Dommisse die volle verhaal, vol kleur en anakdotes, in dié opgedateerde uitgawe van sy hoogaangeskrewe biografie van Rupert.

The extraordinary life of tycoon and philanthropist Dr Anton Rupert is told in full in this updated version of the topselling biography. This is the story of a Karoo boy who grew up during the Depression, struggled to find money to study science, and then made good as a businessman, spectacularly so, reaching the Forbes list of the 500 wealthiest people worldwide. Unlike Harry Oppenheimer, Rupert was no heir, neither did he make his millions from mining. His Rembrandt Group of manufacturers became known across the globe, owning brands like Cartier, Dunhill, Rothmans and Montblanc. Within a few decades, a family dynasty was built, making the Ruperts, next to the Oppenheimers, the richest family in Africa. This compelling book, based on extensive research, does justice to a South African icon whose life contains invaluable business lessons. Anton Rupert's insights into job and wealth creation are today more relevant than ever.

'A fascinating demythologising of the Playboy brand and Hefner himself' - Pandora Sykes
'I was 21 years old when I found myself on the front stoop of the Playboy Mansion. I want to tell the real story of my time there - the good and the bad, the dark and the light.'
In 2008 the Playboy mansion became Crystal Harris's sanctuary - a shimmering vestige of opportunity. Within months she had ascended its hierarchy to become Hugh Hefner's top girlfriend. But her new home came at a cost. Forced to follow strict rules that governed everything from her appearance to behaviour, she began to lose her identity. By the time she married Hef in 2012, the mansion had become her prison. Having made a promise to Only Say Good Things, for years Crystal suppressed the truth of what really happened behind the mansion's closed doors. Now, in this raw and honest memoir, she's finally ready to expose it all. Laying bare the devastating impact that a culture of relentless objectification and misogyny had on her health, Crystal's extraordinary story carries powerful lessons that are relevant to us all.

The Near North is a vivid account of life in Johannesburg in times of crisis. From the stony ridges of Langermann Kop in Kensington to the tree-lined avenues of Houghton, we follow the writer through the city's streets, meeting its ghosts and journeying through time and (often circumscribed) space, finding meaning in the everyday and incidental.

At once an echo of Ivan Vladislavić's award-winning Portrait with Keys and an original work of intense acuity and quiet power, The Near North is both intimate and expansive, ranging from small domestic dramas to great public spectacles. Wryly playful at times, fiercely serious at others, it is certain to move and delight all who accompany the writer through its pages.

Hierdie is nie 'n storie van rags to riches nie. Phoebe Abrahams se mense van Grassy Park in die Kaapse Vlakte het immers status en styl gehad. Sy was boonop sexy én slim. G'n wonder die skrander senior student van Kommadagga in die Oos-Kaap, Jakes Gerwel, het haar op die UWK-kampus raakgesien nie.
Sy het hom leer ken as Gert. Wat 'n lelike naam, het sy gedink. Ook nie juis waffers wat looks betref nie. Maar toe sy hom die eerste keer in 'n Filosofieklas met digterdosent Adam Small hoor praat, is haar voorbehoude oor sy naam en voorkoms eensklaps vergete.
Die opgang wat Jakes-wat-Gert-was in die akademie en politiek gemaak het, was buitengewoon. Later, as visekanselier van die universiteit wat 'n tuiste vir linkses was, en as direkteurgeneraal in die kantoor van Nelson Mandela, het hy 'n enorme rol in ons politieke oorgang gespeel. As sy lewensmaat het Phoebe die wêreld gesien, en ontmoet. Sy was vir die rol uitgeknip.
Tien jaar ná Jakes se onverwagse dood vertel Phoebe met haar kenmerkende sin vir humor aan die gewilde skrywer Rachelle Greeff van hoogtepunte in hulle lewe saam.
Sy maak ook haar hart oop oor haar sielsallenige laagtepunte en oor die “donker derde party” wat in haar en Jakes se huwelik nesgeskop het: 'n ongeneeslike geestestoornis. Maar met die regte hulp, begrip van geliefdes en deursettingsvermoë was dit nie vir Phoebe 'n doodsvonnis nie, en was selfs 'n skreef lig meermale vir haar genoeg.
Nelson Mandela het met hulle eerste ontmoeting verklaar dat hy nou verstaan waarom Jakes Gerwel die wêreld wil verander. Phoebe is inspirerend, en lewer bewys van die veerkragtigheid van die menslike gees.

Op skool was ôs gelee met patrone om cursive te skryf. En gelee tel sône om ôs vinges te gebryk. En kyk nou vi ôs, ôs met ôs nommes en somme wat meer veloorit as wat ôs ooit kan tel, ôs met ôs mooi handskrifte en nieman om voo te skryfie. In haar verrykende memoir skryf Charmaine Africa op narratiewe wyse, en in Kaaps, oor haar grootwordjare in Bishop Lavis. Haar lewensverhaal, wat verras met humoristiese oomblikke, sentreer op die alledaagse bestaan van haar familie vanaf die 1960's: haar ma, Amma, wat spartel om haar werk en gesin bymekaar te hou; haar alkoholis-pa; haar susters wat ook 'n verbete stryd in hul eie huwelike voer; haar broers wat uiteindelik voor die drankduiwel swig; en haar eie ontwikkeling as kind tot 'n jong vrou wat 'n onvermydelike siklus probeer veg. Amma gee 'n stem aan die oorlewingstryd op die Kaapse Vlakte en 'n eerlike blik op die kringloop van kru armoede. Die vertelling is onopgesmuk, hartverskeurend en meesterlik.

Feeling an exile in the country of his birth, the talented journalist and leading black intellectual Bloke Modisane left South Africa in 1959. It was shortly after the apartheid government had bulldozed Sophiatown, the township of his childhood. His biting indictment of apartheid, Blame Me on History, was published in 1963 - and banned shortly afterwards.

Modisane offers a harrowing account of the degradation and oppression faced daily by black South Africans. His penetrating observations and insightful commentary paint a vivid picture of what it meant to be black in apartheid South Africa. At the same time, his evocative writing transports the reader back to a time when Sophiatown still teemed with life.

This 60th-anniversary edition of Modisane's autobiography serves as an example of passionate resistance to the scourge of racial discrimination in our country, and is a reminder not to forget our recent past.

Maria is a young woman raised as a Jehovah's Witness in South Africa, and this book documents her experiences of gender victimisation, sexual abuse and cover-ups within the church, as well as her eventual 'escape' from its doctrines and control. Maria's freedom came at a price, however - she can never see her mother and sister again. A worldwide, Christian-based religious group that professes an unparalleled dedication to Jehovah (God), the Jehovah's Witnesses have a strong sense of community and appear to embrace a disciplined yet loving way of life with the promise of eternal salvation for those who follow the way of Jehovah.
It is a seemingly benign religious movement, claiming to be politically neutral, racially and ethnically transcendent, with a membership of eight million people worldwide. Yet, at its core, many former Witnesses claim that it is a fear-based doomsday cult that considers itself above all other belief systems. Allegations of secular, cultish behaviour, homophobia, money laundering, brainwashing and countless accusations of institutionalised sexual abuse abound. It seems that membership is managed and retained mostly by way of information control and manipulation, extending to the shunning of higher education and preaching their own version of the Bible. Entering the church is easy, but leaving it can be a matter of life or death, as Maria and countless others discovered …

Met bedrieglik eenvoudige lirieke en gevoelvolle melodieë het Koos du Plessis musiek in Afrikaans geskep wat tot gewone mense spreek, maar wat oor universele temas handel: verlies, vervreemding, afsondering, ontroering, ontheemding en verganklikheid. Sy musiek word dan ook dikwels vergelyk met dié van onder meer Leonard Cohen en Bob Dylan.
Koos du Plessis is reeds veertig jaar oorlede, maar sy invloed binne die Afrikaanse kulturele milieu kring steeds wyer uit. Liedjies soos “Sprokie vir 'n stadskind” en “Kinders van die wind” het onuitwisbaar deel geword van die Afrikaanse kultuurskat; sy liedjies word gesing op enige plek waar daar Afrikaans gehoor word; en meer as 'n honderdtal kunstenaars wat musiek maak oor 'n breë spektrum - van Theuns Jordaan tot Johannes Kerkorrel en Battery 9 tot Refentse Morake - het al 'n Koos Doep-liedjie opgeneem of vertolk. Koos kan egter moeilik getipeer word slegs as Afrikaanse liriekskrywer: benewens 'n sestigtal oorspronklike liedjies, het daar ook postuum twee versbundels onder sy naam verskyn.
Daar is steeds 'n aanvraag na Koos se eie vertolkings van sy liedjies, wat daarop dui dat hy ook vir homself 'n staanplek as uitvoerende kunstenaar afgebaken het. Dan het sy inkennigheid, ongemaklike verhouding met die pers en vroeë dood hom natuurlik ook 'n besonder enigmatiese figuur binne die Afrikaanse kultuurwêreld gemaak. Dis egter moeilik om meer oor Koos en sy werk te wete te kom. Tot die groot frustrasie van joernaliste, was hy publisiteitsku en het hy selde onderhoude toegestaan. Daar is ook nie 'n opgaaf van sy kreatiewe werk en sy veeltal lirieke beskikbaar nie. 'n Koos du Plessis-liriekbundel met die lirieke en melodielyne van die liedjies op sy eerste twee albums is al 'n geruime tyd nie meer beskikbaar nie, en baie van Koos se latere lirieke is aan 'n groot deel van sy aanhangers onbekend. Met Erfdeel word hierdie leemte gevul. Die boek bring Koos se kreatiewe werk vir die eerste maal byeen, en vul dit aan met 'n oorsig van sy musiekloopbaan en leefwêreld, asook gedagtes oor die invloed van sy nalatenskap. Al Koos se lirieke - wat ook as verse gelees kan word - is ingesluit, asook enkele toonsettings van Koos se verse deur ander kunstenaars. Vir liedjieskrywers, musiekmakers en musiekliefhebbers se onthalwe word kitaarakkoorde by elk van die lirieke geplaas.
Die verse uit Koos se twee bundels - Om jou verlaas te groet (Human & Rousseau, 1985) en Skink nog 'n uur in my glas (Queillerie, 1995) - is heropgeneem saam met 'n vyftiental ongepubliseerde verse. Erfdeel bevat ook biografiese notas oor Koos se lewe, foto's, en besonderhede oor die ontstaansgeskiedenis van sommige van sy bekendste liedjies.

Hippos, a Mongoose and Me is a collection of vivid stories reflecting the decades that Karen has lived and worked in the wilds of southeast Zimbabwe. The tales encompass a wide variety of animals and experiences, including Karen's extraordinary affinity with hippos, life with her beloved mongoose, characterful baboons and rescued birds, close encounters with lions and an injured buffalo, and her heart-stopping flight from an enraged elephant. To add to the drama,
Karen and her husband Jean-Roger must face off against the drumbeat of political subterfuge and poaching of wildlife, sometimes at great personal risk.

Inspiring, surprising and sometimes sad, this heartfelt anthology is testament to the courage and resilience of its intrepid author.

A critical look at how Bill Gates uses his wealth and power through the Gates Foundation to advance his own agenda and erode democratic institutions in the process.


How much money should one man be allowed to amass? Would your answer change if you knew he was a saint?

From greedy to generous, from cold- to kind-hearted, from rogue to hero, Bill Gates is an extraordinarily complex public figure. Yet over the last decade, we've reduced him to a flat caricature - a sweater-wearing, avuncular, well-meaning billionaire, who is adamantly giving away all of his money through the Gates Foundation in order to improve the lives of others.

This simplistic portrait perilously ignores the political influence that Gates has acquired through his charitable work, and the controversial ways through which he utilises it. We might like to think of the Foundation as an innocent charity giving away money, collaborating with stakeholders, and listening to the desires of the populations it hopes to help, but is that how it works in practice? The charity internally sets a policy agenda for how to fix the world - based apparently on one man's worldview - then arguably seeks to impose this vision onto the developing world by funding groups that align with it.

Combining rich storytelling and ground-breaking reporting, The Bill Gates Problem offers readers a provocative and timely counter-narrative about one of the world's most widely recognized individuals - a true global celebrity with a truly global audience. But more than that, this book speaks to a vital political question around economic inequality and the erosion of democratic institutions - why should the super-rich be able to transform their wealth into political power, and just how far can they go?
