This book is a chronicle of the political and moral evolution of an Afrikaner within the context of the political evolution of South Africa and how he not only overcame the conservative and biased background of his youth but was transformed into a revolutionary spokesman for change and a recognition of the injustices of the past. It is also a realization that many of the consequences of the Apartheid system are still among us and have not been resolved. Many of these old ghosts which he encountered during his career have to be revisited and confronted.

The author takes the reader on a fascinating journey through the internal political struggles that eventually led to the first fully democratic election in South Africa in 1994 and beyond. His role as a Commissioner of the SA Human Rights Commission since retiring as a politician has exposed him to further realities of the legacy of Apartheid. It is the story of a courageous politician and a dedicated South African set on a course to make a positive contribution to the future of the country.

As a child, Thabo Abram Molefe, along with his family, is impelled into the apartheid-era tradition of rural-to-urban transition. Moving from a farm to a multi-ethnic and vibrant township in the heart of Heidelberg, the birthplace of Eugene Terre' Blanche's AWB, proves to be both a challenge and an adventure as he works to evade the nickname that has followed him as a result — 'maplazini', Sotho for a dumb country bumpkin. Native Boy explores a young man's complex relationship with identity and race, seen through the lens of township life. Moreover, it is about his journey to escape the socio- economic trap of the apartheid regime to forever limit the black man to a life of hardship.

Next time you go to a conference or hire a consultant to be told, 'We live in a VUCA [Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous] world,' leave the room. You are wasting your time. In a world of fake news, deep-fakes, manipulated feeds of information and divisive social-media agendas, it's easy to believe that our time is the most challenging in human history.
It's just not true.
It is a time of extraordinary opportunity. But only if you have the right mindset. Fear of the future breeds inaction and leads to strategic paralysis. We put off decisions until we can have certainty. We look for signals. We wait. And while we do that, the world moves on around us. Problem solvers thrive in chaotic and uncertain times because they act to change their future. Winners recognise that in a world of growing uncertainty, you need to resort to actions on things you can control.

And the only things over which you have absolute control are your attitude and your mindset. These, in turn, determine the actions you will take and that will define your future.
A robust mindset is the one common characteristic Bruce Whitfield has identified in two decades of interrogating how South Africa's billionaires and start-up mavericks think differently. They are not naive Polly-Annas. They don't ignore risk or hope that problems will go away. They constantly measure, manage, consider and weigh up opportunities in a tumultuous sea of uncertainty and find ways around obstacles.
If, as Nobel Prize-winning economist Robert Shiller suggests, the stories we tell affect economic outcomes, then we need to tell different stories amidst the noise and haste of a rapidly evolving world.

Menige keer wou hy die skryf van meningsartikels laat vaar, maar dan onthou hy Burke se woorde: die enigste ding wat nodig is vir boosheid om te seevier, is goeie mense wat stilbly ....
Halala (Ewig vir jou) Suid-Afrika bevat 'n keur van Le Cordeur se artikels die afgelope 25 jaar en is 'n besinning van Suid- Afrika as jong demokrasie. Dit bestryk 'n breë spektrum: van onderwys, taal, kultuur, werkloosheid, nasiebou, die jeug tot die versugting na leierskap.

Soos die inwoners van die Bo-Kaap (op die voorblad) met al sy kleure en kulture al vir eeue in vrede saam bestaan, so glo die skrywer dat Suid-Afrika 'n tuiste bied vir al sy mense; dat Suid-Afrikaners in harmonie met mekaar wil en kan lewe; ons is immers een groot familie.

Hermann Giliomee, pre-eminent South African historian, dissects the forces that shaped the Afrikaners into an unusual 'maverick African' nation. He analyses long-term forces like the powerful legal position of Afrikaner women, the expanding frontier, and the struggles about race inside the church, along with more recent political history.

Drawing on an extensive array of sources - written, oral and visual - this richly illustrated volume provides a rounded social, intellectual, educational, cultural and political history of one of Africa's foremost universities during the first phase of apartheid.
It puts a spotlight on its leaders, lecturers and learners, but its wide focus takes in many other dimensions of this heterogeneous institution's history too - teaching and research, social, cultural and sporting life and its chequered relationship with the apartheid state, ranging from formal opposition and protest and students' growing defiance culminating in the sit-in of 1968, to ambivalence and willing collaboration. All of these it weaves together into a many-sided whole to produce an elegant, accessible and nuanced study of the operation of UCT as apartheid began to be imposed on South Africa.

Howard Phillips gives us a pioneering and definitive history of the period. And one which will occupy pride of place on the bookshelves of the academics and the thousands of alumni who helped shape this history and the many ordinary Capetonians touched by Varsity.

Jan Smuts, one of the most infamous South Africans of the twentieth century remains a controversial figure. Was he one of the outstanding statesmen of his time or was he perhaps a traitor of Afrikaner interests and possibly a racist? Today there are still strong opinions on Smuts's role.

Like Paul Kruger at the end of the nineteenth century, and Nelson Mandela as the twentieth century drew to a close, it was Jan Smuts who stood head and shoulders above his contemporaries in the first half of the twentieth century; he was a leader of extraordinary stature and his statesmanship is recognised internationally. And yet, the NP and ANC governments have downplayed his contributions for decades, because it did not endorse their Afrikaner and black nationalist versions of South African history. A reappraisal of Smuts will fill a gap in the literature on the history of South Africa in the first half of the twentieth century. Many of the biographies and other works on Smuts appeared during his lifetime or soon after his death. Today, a few generations later, we have a better perspective on his contributions within the historical context of his time. New evidence continues to come to light, making it possible to reach a more informed opinion on questions about Smuts, issues which previously could not be answered conclusively.

The purpose of the book, written almost three generations after his death, is to recall and re-evaluate Smuts's contributions in various fields and in this way introduce him to the younger generation. It is important that Smuts be judged in the context of his particular time and circumstances. As far as his outlook on war and peace, civilisation, race and class differences, the capitalist system and South Africa's place in the wider world are concerned, Smuts was certainly a product of his time. It would be unfair to measure him and his contemporaries against today's norms and values. To do justice to him, his supporters, as well as his opponents and critics, due consideration should be accorded to how they lived, thought and reasoned in that era.

Geen Uitspan is 'n fassinerende weergawe van die lewe in Suid-Afrika vanaf die vroeë 1920's tot die vroeë 1940's, toe die skrywer adjunk-premier van Suid-Afrika was. Deneys Reitz het 'n belangrike rol gespeel in die totstandkoming van die Krugerwildtuin en is aangestel as een van die stigterslede, ondanks die feit dat hy destyds 'n parlementslid was. Sy betrokkenheid by die wilde lewe en verskillende wildreservate wat hy help vestig het terwyl hy in die amp was, is 'n tema wat deur die boek heen strek.
'n Uiters interessante episode in die boek is die val van Hertzog as leier van 'n koalisieregering oor die kwessie van Suid-Afrika se stand in die Tweede Wêreldoorlog. As 'n kabinetsminister in die koalisieregering het Deneys Reitz 'n voorste setel in dit alles - en hy vertel die verhaal soos niemand anders kon nie.

After working closely with the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation in shaping and writing his memoir, author Hassen Ebrahim and Jacana Media are proud to publish this important record of a life that was spent in service to South Africa.
Writes Mac Maharaj in his foreword in the book: “Hassen Ebrahim is one of those many seldom heard of foot soldiers of the 1976 generation who joined the underground and was linked to the ANC structures operating from Botswana. He has been at the coalface of so many facets of South Africa's march to freedom. He was there during the times when involvement in the struggle against apartheid carried the risk of death; he was involved in our negotiated transition to democracy; he was the chief executive of the elected Constitutional Assembly which wrote and adopted our Constitution; thereafter and until 2007 he served in the Department of Justice.”

From Marabastad to Mogadishu: The Journey of an ANC Soldier chronicles an all-too familiar story of those unsung cadres from the struggle we've forgotten to honour for their sacrifices. Those foot soldiers do not feature in our collective memory, they do not find themselves or their stories recorded in the pages of history books, and they are not remembered for their selfless acts of bravery.

The bravery and sacrifice of the ordinary teenager who dropped out of school, the cadre who risked life and limb, and the freedom fighter who exiled himself or herself to countries far and wide must be given a chance to live on book pages, find expression on film reels and all other mediums of historic memory collection.

From Marabastad to Mogadishu: The Journey of an ANC Soldier signals the resolve by the author, his peers, Jacana Media and support organisations such as the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation to bring the ordinary cadre's story to the fore, to acknowledge his or her sacrifices, and to recognise their contribution to South Africa's democracy.
