Hat hurt is still there. We had a good, good childhood in Harfield, even though we were poor.

Anger. Hurt. Loneliness. These feelings are familiar to residents from Harfield Village who were forcibly removed from the area in the early '70s. For the first time, Dr. Siona O'Connell has found a way to bring their stories to light. She examines apartheid-era forced removals, their ways of life, home, belonging and freedom in the aftermath of apartheid for these residents. David Brown's images from the backdrop of the book: a series of images, telling stories of what life was like in Harfield as well and the effects that eviction wreaked and continues to impose on these people. Brown's photographs are echoed by images taken in 2018 of these former residents. This is a reminder that for many ex-residents, the past seems to be not only unspeakable, but unthinkable, and 'unlistenable'. We cannot afford to forget these atrocities of the past.

Voices from the Underground takes the reader inside the ANC's military underground in the mid- to late 1980s, during the height of the apartheid regime's violent crackdown on political activism. In this book, eighteen members of Umkhonto we Sizwe's Ashley Kriel Detachment, which operated primarily in the Western Cape, tell their stories for the first time.
From smuggling arms across the Botswana border to setting off a limpet mine inside the Castle of Good Hope, participants in the armed struggle speak about the operations they carried out, the tactics they employed, the victories they achieved and the hardships they endured, including the deaths of comrades at the hands of the police and the immense burden of living a double life.

This collection of memoirs sets out the various journeys undertaken by each member of the detachment on the road to becoming a soldier of the revolution, and reveals the reasons why these ordinary people took the extraordinary step of dedicating their lives to fighting for freedom no matter the cost.

In Namibia the 1980s were a dark decade of human rights abuses by South African security forces. Judge David Smuts, then a young Windhoek lawyer, felt compelled to take on the system. His gripping memoir details several dramatic cases, including the freeing of detainees that had been held secretly for six years, proving that torture was used to extract 'confessions' and that Koevoet knowingly killed civilians. Working with the likes of Sydney Kentridge, Geoff Budlender and Arthur Chaskalson, Smuts won legal victories and established a legal centre in the far North, where many misdeeds had taken place. Smuts also takes a fresh look at the assassination of Anton Lubowski, anti-apartheid activist and his close friend.

A single moment can change a life forever… A van full of men armed with AK47s is stopped by two policemen while driving through Bethlehem in the Free State. They open fire on the policemen and, from that moment, their lives are irrevocably changed. So to for Fusi Mofokeng, resident of Bethlehem, who was not at the scene of the crime but was the brother-in-law of one of the perpetrators. He is accused of being an accomplice and tried, sentenced and jailed.

Nineteen years later, in 2011, Fusi is released into a world that has changed beyond recognition, a world in which his mother, father and brother have all died. Throughout his incarceration he fought for his release, appearing before the TRC, and schooling himself in law. Even today, he seeks a presidential pardon.

It is to this life that award-winning author Jonny Steinberg turns his attention in One Day in Bethlehem. In examining the life and struggle of Fusi Mofokeng, Steinberg shines a searing light on the burden of the 'everyman' in his quest for justice. In doing so, he also captures a country as it violently sheds the skin of the past to
emerge, blinking, into the modern era.

'Dancing a tango with death' was the daily life of the DCC - the Directorate of Covert Collection - secret agents, working in what JJ 'Tolletjie' Botha called 'hostile countries'. Who were these men? Airline pilots, Belgian missionaries, German industrialists, engineers, medical doctors, high-ranking officers of enemy countries and last, but not least, people like a well-known Namibian lawyer and a famous, internationally acclaimed South African singer; people who, sometimes unwittingly, collaborated with the 'shadow's men', believing they were helping friendly countries … Did the document prepared by General Pierre Steyn, the famous topsecret Steyn Report, really exist?
In this book you will find the full original document whose existence has been denied by FW de Klerk and his closest allies. Did Judge Richard Goldstone act bona fide by accepting in his final report the information given to him by Counter Intelligence and the NIS, information that, at the very end, emerged as “hearsay”? Was Judge Goldstone aware of the final objective of the tandem pair Steyn-De Klerk to decapitate the South African Defence Force?

Did the top structure of the DCC maintain close contacts with most of the Western intelligence services, and particularly the British MI6? Was any one of the hundreds of civilian and military men 'listed' as part of the infamous Third Force ever condemned? Was Staal Burger or Ferdi Barnard really part of the DCC or were they 'imposed' by the then Chief of the Army, General Kat Liebenberg? Did you know that more than half the African members of the first Mandela cabinet had been on the DCC's payroll? Why did the Motsuenyane Commission of Enquiry have to suspend its search, and never published the list of ANC members massacred or disappeared, victims of their own comrades?

This book is a romance of truth; but behind it is a greater personal romance, and behind that again is the even more wonderful romance of South Africa.
- Jan Smuts
No Outspan begins with Deneys Reitz's return from the First World War, during which he commanded a Scottish regiment. One might think that Reitz would be happy to settle for a quiet life after fighting through two terrible wars, but nothing could be further from the truth. Immediately on his return by ship to Table Bay Harbour, he agreed to stand as a Member of Parliament in the forthcoming election.
The South African Party under Botha and Smuts won the election, and Deneys Reitz became a Cabinet Minister. This enabled him to lead a life of great adventure when not constrained by Parliament or the drudgery of Pretorian office duties.
No Outspan is a fascinating account of life in South Africa from the early 1920s until the early 1940s, when the author was Deputy Prime Minister of South Africa. Deneys Reitz played an important role in the creation of the Kruger National Park and was appointed as one of the founding trustees despite being an opposition Member of Parliament at the time. His involvement with wild life and various game reserves he helped establish while in office is a theme that runs throughout the book.
An intensely interesting episode in the book is the fall of Hertzog as leader of a coalition government over the issue of South Africa's stand in the Second World War. As a Cabinet Minister in the coalition government, Deneys Reitz had a front row seat in all of this - and he tells the story as no one else could.
Jan Smuts said after Reitz's death in 1944: 'His loss is a national one and will be mourned all over this country which he knew and loved as no other'.

'Freedom of the press is a precious privilege that no country can forego.' - Mahatma Gandhi

In 2016, the country watched as eight journalists stood up to the public broadcaster to dissent against the censorship imposed by COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng and the capture of the newsroom. They would become known as the SABC8. While many may remember the headlines, photos and footage that circulated during that time, few know the real story: the way lives were changed while history was being made.

Now, Foeta Krige, one of the SABC8, shares his version of events: how it came about that eight very different journalists from within the public broadcaster, each with their own unique background and motivation, were brought together by circumstance to fight the mighty SABC in the name of media freedom. This forms the backdrop for a lesser-known story - one of death threats, intimidation, assault and the eventual death of Suna Venter. Her death shocked the nation and baffled investigators. Was it a natural death caused by stress, or were there more sinister forces involved? To understand why her death was red-flagged, it is necessary to retrace her steps and how they converged with those of the seven other journalists.

Krige takes the reader back to the day when everything started, telling the gripping, and often harrowing, story behind the sensational headlines.

Twenty-five years have passed since South Africans were being shot, hacked or burned to death in political conflict. The memory of the trauma has faded where some 20 500 people were killed between 1984 and 1994. Conventional wisdom claims that they died at the hands of a state-backed Third Force. The more accurate explanation is that they died as a result of the people's war the ANC unleashed.
After the people's war began in September 1984, intimidation and political killings rapidly accelerated. At the same time, a remarkably effective propaganda campaign put the blame for violence on the National Party government and its alleged Inkatha surrogate. Sympathy for the ANC soared, while its rivals suffered crippling losses in credibility and support. By 1993 the ANC was able to dominate the negotiating process, as well as to control the militarily undefeated police and army and bend them to its will. By May 1994 it had trounced its rivals and taken over government. Many books have been written on South Africa's political transition, but none deals adequately with the people's war. This book does. It shows the extraordinary success of the people's war in giving the ANC a virtual monopoly on power, as well as the great cost at which this was done. Apart from the terror and killings it sparked, the people's war set in motion forces that cannot easily be tamed. Contemporary South Africa and the problems it confronts cannot be fully understood without a knowledge of the scars and damaging legacy of the people's war.

For this new edition of her seminal work, Anthea Jeffery has revised and abridged her book. She has also included a brief overview of the ANC's National Democratic Revolution, for which the people's war was intended to prepare the way. Since 1994, the NDR has incrementally been implemented in many different spheres. It is also now being speeded up in its current and more 'radical' phase.

Throughout the past 50 years, the courts have been a battleground for contesting political forces as more and more conflicts that were once fought in Parliament or in streets, or through strikes and media campaigns, find their way to the judiciary. Certainly, the legal system was used by both the apartheid state and its opponents. But it is in the post-apartheid era, and in particular under the rule of President Jacob Zuma, that we have witnessed a dramatic increase in 'lawfare': the migration of politics to the courts. The authors show through a series of case studies how just about every aspect of political life ends up in court: the arms deal, the demise of the Scorpions, the Cabinet reshuffle, the expulsion of the EFF from Parliament, the nuclear procurement process, the Cape Town mayor…

This book makes visible undocumented everyday experiences that shaped the lives of ordinary South Africans during the country's brutal and painful past. It is a record of things that “sit” within all of us. By sharing their memories, the storytellers map the scope of the wider, and difficult, conversation about the meaning of justice and the missing parts of the discourse of reconciliation in South Africa. It creates a space for a conversation about South Africa's history and what it means to talk to and to hear the other within the context of this history. In publishing each story in Xhosa, Afrikaans and English, we hope that the book will stimulate conversation among South Africans across languages. We hope that it will enable South Africans to connect with one another in a manner that seeks mutual understanding about the complicated aspects of our shared history and its continuing impact on the lives of individuals and communities. It is for this reason that we have compiled the collection of stories in this book. Stories - people narrating their memories of life under apartheid - can help introduce an alternative understanding of the painful aspects of their traumatic pasts. Twenty years after the TRC, this book is testament to our understanding that justice and reconciliation is not merely an event or a legal process but an on-going process that requires people to talk publicly about the effects of colonialism and apartheid on South Africans, and the need to listen to one another's stories. The book gives publicity to undocumented everyday experiences that shaped the lives of ordinary South Africans during this country's brutal and painful past. As such, it is an effort to depict a conversation about the meaning of transformation. We hope that by sharing their memories in this book, the storytellers will contribute towards a deeper understanding of the suffering that underpins this country and shapes our contemporary dispensation.

After years of interviews with Kas Maine and his neighbors, employers, friends, and family - a rare triumph of collaborative courage and dedication - Charles van Onselen has recreated the entire life of a man who struggled to maintain his family in a world dedicated to enriching whites and impoverishing blacks, while South Africa was tearing them apart.

Terwyl die vlaktes duskant Uppington droomverlore in die maanlig gelê het, het ek aan Matt White se woorde gedink: 'I want to die with my boots on.' Miskien was dit ook hoe die Ferreiras wou sterf?

Die ink op die Vredesverdrag van Vereeninging was skaars droog, toe John Hendrik Ferreira en vyf makkers die Kaapkolonie vanuit Duits-Suidwes-Afrika binnegeval het om Suid-Afrika van Britse heerskappy te bevry.
Tien dae lank het die 'Ferreiras' die Kalahari op horings geneem en die Kaapse polisie laat bontstaan.
Mense weet van die bekookte Jameson-inval wat die Anglo-Boereoorlog voorafgegaan het, maar van die Ferreira-inval weet hulle niks nie. Louis Bothma, onafhanklike navorser en skrywer van Die Buffel Struikel, Vang 'n Boer en Rebelspoor - het hierdie vergete episode uit die rooi Kalaharisand gaan opdiep, en soos net hy kan, vir die leser in konteks geplaas.
Nadat hy die een laag geskiedenis na die ander tot op die been oopgevlek het, voer Bothma die verhaal tot 'n dramatiese einde.

Alles het toe mooi uitgewerk. Die Kalahari steek sy geheime onder die sand weg. Goed so dat die houtkruis ook nou onder die sand verdwyn het. Jean en Flip hoef nie meer daardie kruis te dra nie. Hulle is nou vry.

A unique lens through which to analyse the demise of the National Party: written by a woman and using class analysis - the two decisive “missing links” in Afrikaner history- writing. - Antjie Krog

In 2006, almost a hundred years after the founding of the National Party, the unthinkable happened: the once mighty party of apartheid collapsed into the African National Congress, its sworn enemy for almost a century.

While a string of blunders saw party support plummet-ing, such a humiliating end was wholly unexpected. Is it true that the NP's leaders had betrayed their supporters? What role did the NP play during the negotiations to ensure increased wealth among the black and white South African elite? And is greater material welfare enough to keep Afrikaners satisfied, or are we seeing a resurgence of Afrikaner nationalism? These and other issues are addressed in White Power & the Rise and Fall of the National Party. Vast in scope and details, this book provides an overview of South African politics and society from 1900 to the present. It covers debates on apartheid abuses, the 'leaders' betrayal' and collaboration with the ANC. It will be of interest to all readers wanting to understand South African politics during the democratic transition, whether they previously supported or opposed the NP.
