Provocative, insightful and brilliantly written by Professor Wahbie Long, Nation on the Couch explores life in our beloved country through the lens of psychoanalysis. By focusing on the idea of a 'political unconscious', it argues that there is much to be learnt from excavating the inner life of South Africans, which can illuminate the external problems that beset us from all sides. It will challenge readers to rethink the way we see ourselves, why we do what we do and why we are who we are.

In March 2016, Mosilo Mothepu was appointed CEO of Trillian Financial Advisory, a subsidiary of Gupta-linked Trillian Capital Partners. The prospect of being at the helm of a black-owned financial consultancy was electrifying for a black woman whose twin passions were transformation and empowering women. Three months later, suffering from depression and insomnia, she resigned with no other job lined up.
In October 2016, a written statement handed to Public Protector Thuli Madonsela detailing Trillian's involvement in state capture was leaked to the media. Key to the disclosures were the removals of finance ministers Nhlanhla Nene and Pravin Gordhan from their posts due to the Guptas' influence. Although she was not identified by name as the source of the affidavit, details of the revelations published in the Sunday Times left no doubt in the minds of Trillian's executives: Mothepu was the Nenegate whistleblower.

Despite fearing legal consequences, Mothepu had decided that she could not just stand by as the country burnt. Her disclosures resulted in the freezing of Trillian-associated company Regiments Capital's assets and a High Court order for Trillian to pay back almost R600 million to Eskom. Facing criminal charges and bankruptcy, unemployed and deemed a political risk, Mothepu experienced first-hand the loneliness of whistleblowing. The effect on her mental and physical health was devastating. Now, in Uncaptured, she recounts this troubling yet seminal chapter in her life with honesty, humility and wry humour in the hope that others who find themselves in a similar situation will follow in her footsteps and speak truth to power.

Chris Schoeman neem van die grootste Suid-Afrikaanse rampe sedert die 18de eeu opnuut onder die loep, van die lotgevalle van die oorlewendes van die Grosvenor-skeepsramp op hul dodelike staptog kuslangs tot die tergende raaisels van die Helderberg-lugramp 200 jaar later. Hy skryf oor 'n groot verskeidenheid rampe: natuurrampe, rampe weens meganiese of menslike oordeelsfoute, busrampe, treinrampe en mynrampe. Ook bly die Groot Griep van 1918 en die Xhosaselfmoord in 1856/'57 nie agterweë nie.

The story of the intelligence war in South Africa during the Second World War is one of suspense, drama and dogged persistence. In 1939, when the Union of South Africa entered the war on Britain's side, the German government secretly reached out to the political opposition, and to the leadership of the anti-war movement, the Ossewabrandwag.

The Nazis' aim was to spread sedition in South Africa and to undermine the Allied war effort. The critical stragegic importance of the sea route round the Cape of Good Hope meant that the Germans were also after naval intelligence. Soon U-boat packs were sent to operate in South African waters, to deadly effect.

With the help of the Ossewabrandwag, a network of German spies was established to gather important political and military intelligence and relay it back to the Reich. Agents would use a variety of channels to send coded messages to Axis diplomats in neighbouring Mozambique. Meanwhile, police detectives and MI5 agents hunted in vain for illegal wireless transmitters.

Hitler's Spies presents an unrivalled account of German intelligence networks that operated in wartime South Africa. It also details the hunt in post-war Europe for witnesses to help the government bring charges of high treason against key Ossewabrandwag members.

It was one of the most brutal criminal acts of the post-apartheid era, and its consequences devastating.
Thousands of people died between 2011 - 2019 resulting from one senior police officer's crime: his decision to sell millions of rands' worth of guns. Colonel Christiaan Prinsloo, former head of the Gauteng firearm license division, and his network of cronies sold guns decommissioned by the SAPS to South Africa's gang lords. The sale of such weapons led to a killing spree of unprecedented proportions.

Based on interviews with police and the criminal underworld, this book tells the story of this callous crime for the first time. Shaw explores how the illegally sold guns got into the hands of South Africa's crime bosses. The book describes the bloodbath that ensued and uncovers accounts of rampant corruption within the police and in the gun-licensing system, probing the government failure that has been instrumental in arming the country's gangsters.

'If you reckon corruption in South Africa began with Zuma or even with apartheid, it's time to catch a wake-up call. Rogues' Gallery tells the story of some of the biggest skelms to grace our (un)fair shores, showing that dodgy dealings have been a national pastime for as long as South African history has been written down.

The action starts with the machinations of three colonial governors: rotten Willem Adriaan van der Stel and the 'twaddling' British duo, Sir George Yonge and Lord Charles Somerset. Added to this is Cecil John Rhodes's unparalleled success in poisoning the land with theft, fraud and war, and Oom Paul Kruger's corrupt and compromised Volksraads (official and unofficial).

Readers are then treated to apartheid's finest feats in corruption: from the Broederbond's perfect ten in state capture to the Department of Information's peddling of fake news and the apartheid state's manufacture of - no, not illegal cigarettes - Class A drugs! And let's not forget the hotbed of corruption that was the 'independent' homelands. Add to this a few murders, plenty of nepotism and a state president who started out as a Nazi spy, and the gallery of rogues is complete. On the flipside, every chapter also features at least one brave whistle-blower - the true heroes of this book.

Irreverent, entertaining and impeccably researched, Rogues' Gallery busts the myth that the Zuptas were the first to capture the South African state, showing that corruption has always been around - and that the tricks politicians play haven't changed a jot.'

This comprehensive military atlas covers every aspect of the Boer War in some 230 full-colour maps, diagrams and detailed ORBATs. Maps covering the conflict on a strategic, operational and tactical level guide the reader through each stage of the war, from Kruger's invasions of Natal and Griqualand West, through the famous battles of the conventional period, to the vast 'drives' of the Guerrilla War phase which broke the back of the Bittereinders and brought the war to an end. By showing where every operation and battle fitted into the bigger picture, the reader can understand how and why any given action was fought, and how the war was ultimately won by Lord Kitchener's men.
Utilising standard NATO symbols to represent the various units involved, all the maps in this unique resource were drawn specially for the Atlas, and combine contemporary military maps with modern 1:50000 survey maps to ensure unprecedented levels of accuracy and detail. A detailed timeline helps explain how the war unfolded, and the maps are organised into sections that cover the various fronts.
The Atlas is also lavishly illustrated with contemporary photographs and drawings, as well as modern-day photographs to show how the battlefields look today, and to illustrate some of the many monuments erected to commemorate the men who fought and died. Though some of the battles covered are well known, this work also provides detail on many others which - though major actions - are almost forgotten today. The operations and smaller battles of the long and bitter Guerrilla War are also exhaustively covered. Other maps depict the details of the vast lines of blockhouses that were constructed across hundreds of miles of South Africa, and the critical role these played in the latter stages of the conflict. Whether you are new to the war, or a well-read enthusiast, The Boer War Atlas is an indispensable guide to understanding how this highly misunderstood war was fought.

About the Author:
Chris Ash grew up in the Shetland Isles and studied at Aberdeen University. After a brief and undistinguished dalliance with the British Army (Lovat Scouts and Gordon Highlanders), he drove his Land Rover to South Africa and decided to stay. Since then, he has worked in oil exploration all over Africa and the Middle East. His interest in South African history was sparked by watching Zulu and Breaker Morant as a child, and he has written extensively on the Rhodesian history and the Boer War. 'The Atlas of the Boer War' is his fifth book. He currently works in Iraq and lives in Johannesburg with a pack of Rhodesian Ridgebacks and an insane Bengal cat.

Louis Botha was 'n briljante Boeregeneraal wie se taktiese vernuf en intuïtiewe aanslag vir etlike oorwinnings oor die Britse magte in die Anglo-Boereoorlog gesorg het. Maar dit was sy enigmatiese karakter en vaste oortuiging om te hou by wat hy geglo het reg was, wat hom as 'n leier van die Boerevolk bevestig het.
Richard Steyn gee op meesterlike wyse insae in die lewe van hierdie grootse Suid-Afrikaanse krygsman en staatsman. Hy beskryf verhelderend hoe Botha saam met sy hegte vriend, Jan Smuts, die vier Suid-Afrikaanse kolonies na Uniewording in 1910 gelei het waarna Botha as die eerste eerste minister van die Unie aangewys is.

Gedurende die Eerste Wêreldoorlog was Botha aan die voorpunt van die Suid-Afrikaanse magte se suksesvolle inval van Duits-Suidwes-Afrika. Tog is hy deur talle Afrikaners verkwalik vir sy steun aan Brittanje, en die Afrikaner-rebellie van 1914, waartydens hy teen voormalige makkers moes optree, het sy hart gebreek.

Botha se groothartig en vrygewige omgang met mense - van Vereeniging tot Versailles - het hom bo sy tydgenote laat uitstaan.

1986 was a pivotal year in South African history. It was the year of the vigilante, the year of the necklace - but also the year the talking began.
Drawing on newspaper articles, memoirs, and little-known histories, William Dicey presents a compelling diary of a very bad year.
He focuses on ordinary people, showing what life was actually like under an authoritarian regime - from the six hours a day that black workers in KwaNdebele spent on buses to the rebel sporting tours that provided a distraction for white South Africans.
Some stories foreshadow the miracle of 1990 - for instance, the deputy commander of Pollsmoor Prison takes Nelson Mandela on a scenic drive around Cape Town, years before his eventual release. Other stories shine a light on our current conflicts.
Written in crisp prose, 1986 is a model of historical excavation, deftly evoking the spirit of the times.

In een van sy gesigte het Siener gesien hy (die Boervolk) kap 'n doringbos af wat in die pad van die volk staan. 'n Doringbos verteenwoordig 'n Blanke regering wat agteraf met die vyande heul.
Maar Siener het aan Boy Mussmann gesê hy sien in die verre toekoms sal daar weer 'n doringbos-, “mofskaap”- of tussentydse regering in ons pad verskyn, wat dan met geweld deur die volk verwyder (afgekap) sal word.
Volgens hom sal dit 'n gemengde regering wees wat die swart regering uit die kussings gaan lig, om ons volk dan in die hande van die Nuwe Wêreldorde oor te gee.
In hierdie boek vertel die skrywer ons nie net wié die beplanners van die Doringbosregering is nie, maar ook dat hulle reeds oor die nodige fondse beskik vir die instelling daarvan; verder is daar glo ook al 'n implementeringsdatum in plek waarop hulle 'n “Nuwe Toekoms” op die ruïnes van die verwoeste ANC-omgewing, wil bou.
Sekere organisasies sal die koers aandui en ander instansies sal weer uitvoering daaraan gee.

Hedendaagse Suid-Afrikaners assosieer die ossewa onvermydelik met die Groot Trek en groot geskiedkundige gebeure soos die Slag van Vegkop en Bloedrivier. Sonder die ossewa sou hierdie gebeure inderdaad ook nie denkbaar wees nie. Maar Erik Holm toon in hierdie boek aan dat die ossewa 'n onmisbare en onmiskenbare betekenis vir die ganse ontwikkeling van Suider-Afrika gehad het: in die verkenning van die binneland, die migrasie van verskillende groepe setlaars gedurende die 18de tot diep in die 20ste eeu, die vervoer van swaar toerusting deur transportryers vanaf kushawens na die nuwe mynbougebiede in die Noord-Kaap en die ou Transvaal, as mobiele tenk en blokhuis gedurende die Anglo-Boereoorlog en, voor die algemene gebruik van motorvoertuie, as algemene vervoermiddel van mense en hulle bagasie. Daarby het die ossewa 'n groot invloed op die Afrikaanse taal en letterkunde gehad en duik dit selfs vandag nog op as onderwerp van populêre liedjies. Talle kunstenaars het die ossewa in hul werk uitgebeeld en as simbool het ossewaens op munte, seëls en die wapens van talle instansies en lande verskyn.
Tegniese aspekte van die bou en bedryf van die ossewa word in fyn besonderhede beskryf, en die geduldige trekos kry deernisvolle aandag. Hierdie formidabele publikasie is ryklik geïllustreer met tekeninge, kunswerke en foto's en bied 'n verrassende nuwe blik op die geskiedenis van Suid-Afrika vanuit 'n ongewone hoek aan.

DIE OUTEUR
Erik Holm is 'n man van vele ambagte. Hy is een van Suid-Afrika se baanbreker-entomoloë met 'n groot aantal wetenskaplike publikasies op sy kerfstok en het wye bekendheid verwerf vir sy deelname aan radioprogramme soos Hoe verklaar jy dit. Hy skryf 'n gereelde rubriek vir Beeld en tree op as raadgewer oor ekologies-haalbare boerdery- en ander praktyke. Daarby restoureer hy ou ossewaens en het die Ossewa-lodge by Hartbeespoortdam begin. In 2019 is die Senior Kaptein Scott-medalje deur die SA Akademie vir Wetenskap en Kuns aan hom toegeken.

Hermann Giliomee, top historian, is seen as the world expert on the history of the Afrikaners. This book presents the essence of his previous, longer academic work in readable language. Many controversial aspects of South Africa's past and the role therein of the group of people who in time would refer to themselves as “Afrikaners” are told in colour and flavour in story form, leaving readers with a fresh, sometimes challenging perspective on our past .

Land reform and the possibility of expropriation without compensation are among the most hotly debated topics in South Africa today, met with trepidation and fervour in equal measure. But these broader issues tend to obscure a more immediate reality: a severe housing crisis and a sharp increase in urban land occupations.
In Promised Land, Karl Kemp travels the country documenting the fallout of failing land reform, from the under-siege Philippi Horticultural Area deep in the heart of Cape Town's ganglands to the burning mango groves of Tzaneen, from Johannesburg's lawless Deep South to rural KwaZulu-Natal, where chiefs own vast tracts of land on behalf of their subjects. He visits farming communities beset by violent crime, and provides gripping, on-the-ground reporting of recent land invasions, with perspectives from all sides, including land activists, property owners and government officials. Kemp also looks at burning issues surrounding the land debate in South Africa - corruption, farm murders, illegal foreign labour, mechanisation and eviction - and reveals the views of those affected.

Touching on the history of land conflict and conquest in each area, as well as detailing the current situation on the ground, Promised Land provides startling insights into the story of land conflict in South Africa.
