Nuwe begin: Die Oranjerivierkolonie en Natal in die naoorlogsjare, 1902-1910 is die sesde en laaste deel van die reeks Imperiale somer. Hierdie deel word gewy aan die twee kleinste Britse kolonies in Suid-Afrika gedurende die jare ná die Anglo-Boereoorlog, die Oranjerivierkolonie (Vrystaat) en Natal, en meer spesifiek aan Bloemfontein, Harrismith, Pietermaritzburg en Durban. Aandag word ook geskenk aan die swart gemeenskap in Bloemfontein en op die Vrystaatse platteland, die kwessie van deelboerdery wat toenemende weerstand by wit boere uitgelok het, en die interne spanning in Natal wat tot die Bhambatha-opstand van 1906 gelei het.
Soos die ander boeke in die reeks, kleur anekdotes en kameebeskrywings die vertelling in.

Schoeman sluit af met die verhaal van die luukse Waratah passasier- en vragskip met 82 passasiers wat op 25 Julie 1909 uit Melbourne vertrek het. Die skip het nie 'n radio gehad nie en 'n passasier het by Durban afgeklim omdat hy onveilig gevoel het. Twee dae later het die skip 290 km van Durban op pad na Kaapstad “verdwyn”. Geen wrakstukke of lyke is ooit gevind nie. Hy noem dat Waratah later deur vier ander skepe as naam gebruik is en al vier het ook vergaan.

In 1994, Nelson Mandela powered the ANC to victory in South Africa's first democratic election. Thirty years later, the ANC is fighting to escape political liquidation.

How did we get here and who will rule South Africa next?

In this gripping and fast-paced account of the state of the nation, 30 years after South Africa became a democracy, award-winning journalists Adriaan Basson and Qaanitah Hunter forensically track the demise of the ANC, from Mandela to Ramaphosa, and the rise of a new political class that will determine the next phase of South Africa's democracy.

Drawing on years of reporting from the front line, Basson and Hunter highlight how corruption and greed subsumed a liberation movement by turning a party of freedom fighters into one of villains. They track the ANC's involvement in corruption and underhand dealings, from the arms deal to state capture to the dollars-in-the-sofa Phala Phala scandal.

A close examination of Cyril Ramaphosa's first term in office shows how his bold promises to turn around the ANC's fortunes amounted to little. The book reveals previously unpublished material detailing Ramaphosa's failures of governance and inability to address the party's decline.

Basson and Hunter map out the likely scenarios for a coalition government after the 2024 election and what it will mean for the country if politicians such as John Steenhuisen, Julius Malema or Herman Mashaba gain access to the Union Buildings.

​Who Will Rule South Africa? is a must-read for everyone who cares about the country's future.

Since populist factions claim to be the people, judges confronting them do not just decide against the people; they are against the people.
The judiciary faces a barrage of attacks not just from the ruling ANC but from other political parties clamouring for power.
There comes a predictable phase in the cycle of politics where this is most likely to occur. Dan Mafora provides much-needed insight.

We have a lot to be positive about in South Africa.
With all our problems, it's easy to feel bleak. But hold those thoughts, because Legends might be just the tonic you need to drive off the gloom. This book tells the stories of a dozen remarkable people - some well-known, others largely forgotten - who changed Mzansi for the better.
Most South Africans are proud of Nelson Mandela - and rightly so. His life was truly astounding, but he's by no means the only person who should inspire us.
There's King Moshoeshoe, whose humanity and diplomatic strategies put him head and shoulders above his contemporaries, both European and African. And John Fairbairn, who brought non-racial democracy to the Cape in 1854. Olive Schreiner was a bestselling international author who fought racism, corruption, and chauvinism. And Gandhi spent twenty years here inventing a system of protest that would bring an empire to its knees.
Legends also celebrates Eugène Marais's startling contributions to literature and natural history (despite a lifelong morphine addiction); Sol Plaatje's wit, intelligence and tenacity in the face of racial zealots; Cissie Gool's lifetime fighting for justice and exposing bigots; and Sailor Malan's battles against fascists in the skies of Europe and on the streets of South Africa.
And then there's Miriam Makeba, who began her life in prison and ended it as an international singing sensation; Steve Biko, who shifted the minds of an entire generation; and Thuli Madonsela (the book's only living legend), who gracefully felled the most powerful man in the land.
Engagingly written and meticulously researched, Legends reminds South Africans that we have a helluva lot to be proud of.

Coloured as an ethnicity and racial demographic is intertwined in the creation of the South Africa we have today. Yet often, Coloured communities are disdained as people with no clear heritage or culture — 'not being black enough or white enough.'

Coloured challenges this notion and presents a different angle to that narrative.

It delves into the history of Coloured people as descendants of indigenous Africans and a people whose identity was shaped by colonisation, slavery, and the racial political hierarchy it created.

Although rooted in a difficult history, this book is also about the culture that Coloured communities have created for themselves through food, music, and shared lived experiences in communities such as Eldorado Park, Eersterus, and Wentworth. Coloured culture is an act of defiance and resilience.

Coloured is a reflection on, and celebration of Coloured identities as lived experiences. It is a call to Coloured communities to reclaim their identity and an invitation to understand the history and place of Coloured people in the making of South Africa's future.

South Africa is facing an extraordinary 'polycrisis'. The dimensions of this crisis include an energy collapse; a failing rail network; weak education outcomes; an interrupted water supply; and the effects of decades of endemic corruption that have brought much of government to a halt. But the country also has incredible assets: a wealth of sought-after minerals; an enviable Constitution that protects rights and advocates social inclusion; an advanced financial and services sector; thriving agricultural and auto industries that compete with the best in the world; a prosecution service that is rapidly rebuilding; and, most of all, strong-willed people determined to make life better through hard work, entrepreneurship and hustling. The choice is stark: we either build on the positives and take the country forward or we will be overwhelmed by the negatives and end up as another Zimbabwe or Venezuela. We have the people, the policies and the resources. What is missing is the political will to make the difficult choices that will save South Africa from disaster. This book takes you on a journey that ends with one of three possible future scenarios: the Good, the Bad or the Ugly. Compiled by The Brenthurst Foundation and In Transformation Initiative, and workshopped with high-powered leaders in business and politics, the scenarios have stimulated intense public interest as the country grapples with its mounting problems. The good news is that there is a clear road towards a positive future. It will take courageous leadership and smart thinking to get there, but the 'Good' scenario is tantalisingly within grasp.

'. . . it is nine months this evening since I last saw the light in my own house, when I had to tear myself away from all that is dear to me. And today is also my little son's birthday. Oh, how I long for home.'

So wrote Michael Muller in 1901 as he gazed at the lights of Cape Town from a ship bound for Bermuda, after months of internment in a British POW camp in Simon's Town. The camps were full, so Boer prisoners were being sent to other parts of the empire. Michael's brothers, Chris and Pieter, were exiled to Ceylon, while Lool was held in the Green Point camp in Cape Town.

Remarkably, three of the brothers kept diaries - the only known instance of this happening in the Boer War. They recorded their intimate thoughts and turbulent emotions, and the diaries gave them agency. The scrawled notes of Chris on the evening after the legendary Magersfontein battle, the rain-dashed pages written by Lool in Colesberg, and the angry words penned by Michael about his treatment at Surrender Hill, have the urgency of men determined to go on record.

When Beverley Roos-Muller first began to explore writing about the Boer experience of the war, she read the tiny war diary of Michael, grandfather of her husband, Ampie Muller. It led her to the discovery of the other diaries and many more documents. She also records the brothers' difficult return home and examines the consequences for South Africa of the bitterness this strife invoked.

This is a beautifully told account of the fellowship of four brothers in war, their capture and their eventual recovery.

REISSUE
The thing that looms largest in South Africa's future is South Africa's past - most especially the nearly five decades of division and conflict at the heart of one of the twentieth century's most infamous social experiments.

Apartheid: An Illustrated History examines the defining experience of modern South Africa's transition from colonialism to democracy. What began in May 1948 as an ambitious project to engineer white supremacy at the expense of the country's black majority spawned 46 years of repressive authoritarianism and bitter resistance, which claimed the lives of thousands and pushed the country to the brink of civil war.

Journalist Michael Morris draws on the work of scholars and historians, as well as contemporary reporting in an unsentimental and highly readable account, vividly complemented by photographs and cartoons. A provocative postscript examines apartheid's stubborn afterlife in the years since 1994, highlighting the need for South Africans to avoid simplistic views of the past.

In some settings, such as Ireland, contiguous Catholic and Protestant states are often not conducive to good relations or neighbourliness. In colonial and imperial southern Africa, formal inter-state arrangements took place at the expense of a third party - subjected African peoples.
Three Wise Monkeys explores some of the contradictions, silences and oversights, and working misunderstandings that arise when an emerging Anglophone, Protestant, industrial and urbanising state - South Africa - develops side by side with Mozambique - a Lusophone, Catholic, commercial, rural colony.
In three volumes, Charles van Onselen examines the intertwined relations between South Africa and Portugal's chronically weak east coast colony, as expressed through the migrant labour system, the tourist trade, the rise and fall of LM Radio and the extraordinary tale of the Lourenço Marques Lottery.
These areas constituted zones of cross-cultural, transnational interaction that both states were reluctant to acknowledge formally, choosing instead to 'see no evil, speak no evil and hear no evil' for much of the 20th century.
Three Wise Monkeys presents a startling new way of viewing the entangled, often hidden, economic, political and social dynamics that informed the rise of 20th-century South Africa, often at the expense of neighbouring Mozambique.

Nine days that set the course of a nation...

Johannesburg, Easter weekend, 1993. Nelson Mandela has been free for three years and is in slow-moving power-sharing talks with President FW de Klerk when a white supremacist shoots Mandela's popular young heir apparent, Chris Hani, in the hope of igniting an all-out civil war. Will he succeed in plunging South Africa into chaos, safeguarding apartheid for perhaps years to come? Or can Mandela and de Klerk overcome their differences and mutual suspicion and calm their followers, plotting a way forward?

In The Plot to Save South Africa, acclaimed South African journalist Justice Malala recounts the riveting story of the next nine days - never before told in full - revealing rarely seen sides of both Mandela and de Klerk, the fascinating behind-the-scenes debates within each of their parties over whether to pursue peace or war, and their increasingly desperate attempts to restrain their supporters despite mounting popular frustrations.

Flitting between the points of view of over a dozen characters on all sides of the conflict, Justice Malala offers an illuminating look at successful leadership in action... and a terrifying reminder of just how close a country we think of today as a model for racial reconciliation came to civil war.

It has been said that the best-known South Africans outside South Africa is Nelson Mandela and Jan Smuts. Smuts is regarded as the most prominent Afrikaner ever and one of the most influential world leaders of his time. So much and so many books have been written about him, but because of his complex personality, some aspects of his life remains a mystery.

In this photobook his life is captured chronologically in photographs, some never published before. Foreword by Fransjohan Pretorius and background information by Richard Steyn.

“Kaapstad was in hierdie tyd 'n vuil, arm en pretensieuse stad.” — K. Schoeman
Die vyfde deel van die reeks Imperiale somer word hoofsaaklik aan Kaapstad gewy, met spesiale aandag aan die opkoms van 'n gekleurde kleinburgery en die ontwikkeling van 'n politieke bewussyn onder hulle, die ontstaan van 'n swart gemeenskap met die probleme wat dit ingehou het, Robbeneiland wat in daardie jare 'n herberg vir melaatses was, asook die passasierskepe waarvan Suid-Afrika afhanklik was vir sy kontak met Europa. As hawestad was prostitusie 'n groot probleem. Dobbellokale in Distrik 6, onwettige drank- en diamanthandel en korrupte lede van die polisiemag het bygedra tot onstabiliteit.
Daar word ook 'n oorsig van die Kaapse platteland (die Paarl, Wellington, Swellendam, Oudtshoorn, Graaff-Reinet en Hanover) in die jare onmiddellik ná die Anglo-Boereoorlog gegee.
Soos met vorige dele van die reeks, kleur anekdotes en kameebeskrywings Schoeman se vertelling in.

The battle of Blood River, or Ncome, on 16 December 1838 has long been regarded as a critical moment in the history of South Africa. It is the culminating victory by the land-hungry Boers who had migrated out of the British-ruled Cape and invaded the Zulu kingdom in 1837.

Many Afrikaners long acclaimed their triumph as the God-given justification for their subsequent dominion over Africans. By contrast, Africans celebrate the war with pride for its significance in their valiant struggle against colonial aggression.

In this telling of the Boer invasion, John Laband deals even-handedly with the warring sides in the conflict, explaining both victory and defeat in the many battles that marked the war. Crucially, he takes the Zulu evidence into full account to present the less familiar Zulu perspective and to explain the decisions taken by the Zulu leaders, as they grappled with the existential threat of the Boer invasion.

The protagonists are placed in the context of a subcontinent experiencing a time of turmoil in the early nineteenth century. A time that saw the displacement of populations and migrations, the emergence of new, warlike African kingdoms such as that of the amaZulu, and the inexorable and violent advance of colonial settlement and rule.

'We were talking about the rise of Japan, about Ronald Reagan's Star Wars … globalisation, technology. And they were still banging on about the Freedom Charter.' - Anglo American's Michael Spicer on the ANC in the mid-1980s. In 1985, a group of white South African business leaders, led by Gavin Relly, the executive chairperson of Anglo American, travelled to a game lodge in Zambia to meet with the exiled ANC leadership under Oliver Tambo and Thabo Mbeki. This visit set in motion a coordinated and well-resourced plan by big business to influence and direct political change in South Africa. In The ANC Billionaires, top-selling author Pieter du Toit draws on first-hand accounts by major roleplayers about the contentious relationship between capital and the ANC before, during and after the country's transition to democracy, and shows how the liberation organisation was completely unprepared to navigate the intersection between business and politics. He also ties the rise of the new elite - including Cyril Ramaphosa, Patrice Motsepe and Saki Macozoma - to the ANC, a party of government and patronage.
