Sedert die eerste plase in 1657 aan vryburgers toegeken is, word die Afrikaner met die plaas en grond geassosieer. Hierdie boek ondersoek die verbintenis tussen wit setlaars en boerdery, en later tussen die Afrikaner, grond en die plaas. Die moontlike ontstaan van 'n Afrikaner-identiteit as gevolg van hierdie verbintenis word nagegaan. Die vraag word gevra wat van daardie identiteit sal word wanneer die nuwe Grondhervormingswet die grond van wit boere hertoegewys het. Kan 'identiteit' in die postmoderne era in elk geval nog absolute waarde hê? Die skrywer gebruik die Afrikaanse plaasroman as vertrekpunt, maar die boek bestaan nie uit konvensionele literêre ontledings nie. Die letterkunde word gelees as deel van die geskiedenis van Afrikanerbewuswording, en ook as medebepalend in die vorming daarvan.

Every life has the power to change the world.
Ndaba Mandela was raised by his grandfather, Nelson Mandela. It is easy to forget that legendary figures like Mandela were first and foremost human beings, flawed and unique, but in Ndaba's account we have a rare and personal insight into the man behind the myth.

In 11 Life Lessons, Ndaba shares with us his memories - charming, intimate and sometimes surprising - to illuminate Mandela's much-loved principles for how to become the people we want to be.

Always call out injustice - even when we see it in ourselves

Freedom must be given as much as it is taken

Strive to do what is right rather than to prove you are right

Anger has its place, even in a kind heart

Inspired by Mandela's remarkable stories, 11 Life Lessons from Nelson Mandela offers a profound and rewarding pathway to changing your world.

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.

'This book is filled with the beautifully told life stories of young adults born in 1994. Their courage, humour and determination give a remarkable insight into South Africa 21 years after democracy. It will leave no one untouched.'Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
It has been 21 years since the dawn of democracy in South Africa. To mark the 'coming of age' of the nation, Melanie Verwoerd and Sonwabiso Ngcowa travelled across South Africa collecting the life stories of young people born in 1994. These 'born frees' relate their personal journeys, dreams and hopes for the future of the country. The brutally honest voices of these 21-year-olds, challenging and disturbing, as well as funny and hopeful, give an invaluable insight into modern day South Africa.

Melanie Verwoerd, political commentator and writer. When she married into the Verwoerd family, Nelson Mandela encouraged her to 'use her surname and voice for the greater good'. She joined the ANC and in 1994 was elected as a Member of Parliament. In 2001 she was appointed as South African ambassador to Ireland. Other published works: The Verwoerd who toyi-toyied and Our Madiba: Stories and reflections of those who met Nelson Mandela.
Sonwabiso Ngcowa, a writer and poet. Born in the Eastern Cape, his works were among the most popular of the Mobi-Books. His short stories are published in English and Xhosa. Ngcowa acts as a mentor in writing workshops, helping youths to develop their own texts. Other published works: In Search of Happiness (also translated into German

This extensive history of South Africa was written by some of the country's most prominent historians such as Hermann Giliomee, Jan Visagie, David Scher and Fransjohan Pretorius. Its broad scope includes South Africa's pre-colonial history, slavery, Afrikaner nationalism, an environmental history and an analysis of a post-apartheid South Africa.

Chapters included are:

The Anglo-Boer War - Fransjohan Pretorius
The establishment of apartheid, 1948-1966 - David Scher
Apartheid: A different view- Hermann Giliomee
The democratic puberty, 2004-2011 - Jan-Jan Joubert

Two chapters are about the struggle against the Afrikaner and focus on the black resistance movement. The author said in a recent interview: 'We did not try and justify apartheid, but one has to know what it was all about'. Prof Hermann Giliomee also poses the question in his chapter: 'Was apartheid all bad?'
The author emphasises that the book is an effort to understand people's behaviour in the history of this country.

Cape Town, 2018. South Africa's mother city is wracked by drought. The prospect of premier Helen Zille's 'Day Zero' - the day when all taps run dry - is driving its citizens into a frenzy. When it's announced that Mayor Patricia de Lille is off the water crisis, the predicament reaches its zenith and politicians turn upon each other.
And so begins a stupendous battle within the Democratic Alliance: who will lead Cape Town? It's during this time that author and researcher Crispian Olver applies to the City of Cape Town to gain access to certain official documents as part of a research project. He is baffled when his application is rejected without explanation, but this only strengthens his resolve to explore how the city of his childhood is run. In particular, he has his sights set on the relationship between city politicians and property developers.

Olver interviews numerous individuals, including many 'chopped' from the city administration. What he uncovers is a pandora's box of backstabbing, in-fighting and backroom deals. He explores dodgy property developments at Wescape and Maiden's Cove, delves into attempts to 'hijack' civic associations, and exposes the close yet precautious relationship between the mayor and City Hall's so-called 'laptop boys'. But his main goal is to understand what led to the political meltdown within the Democratic Alliance, and the defection of De Lille to form her own party.

In 1980, while Nelson Mandela languished in jail, an enthusiastic and hopelessly naïve British teenager arrived at a local school in Mandela's home state of Transkei. Wide-eyed and faced with an unfamiliar world, Treive Nicholas was about to embark on an adventure he would never forget. Looking back on this year forty years later, this book offers a remarkable insight into this politically charged but little-known part of Africa and a lived experience ranging from the surreal to the heartwarming; the wonderful to the tragic. One minute Nicholas could be entertaining local Thembu chiefs, the next he could be witnessing the terrible death of an infant in a neglected Umtata
township. Scrapes with law enforcement agencies increased in frequency and risk as Nicholas railed against the injustices of the apartheid system.

Gail Nattrass, historian and educator, presents the reader with a brief, general account of South Africa‟s history, from the very beginning to the present day, from the first evidence of hominid existence, early settlement pre- and post-European arrival and the warfare through the 18th and 19th centuries that lead to the eventual establishment of modern South Africa. This readable and thorough account, illustrated with maps and photographs, is a culmination of a lifetime of researching and teaching the broad spectrum of South African history, collecting stories, taking students on tours around the country, and working with distinguished historians. A must for all those interested in South Africa, within the country and abroad.

This is a trilogy of Deneys Reitz's three compelling works: Commando, Trekking On and No Outspan. Since publication in 1999, it has become an outstanding seller in its own right.
It provides the reader with a lively, personal account of South African affairs from the Jameson Raid in 1895 to the start of World War II, when the author was Deputy Prime Minister of South Africa. It is also the story of a compulsive adventurer, nature lover and, of course, celebrated daredevil during the Anglo-Boer War who, in the words of Thomas Packenham, 'had the uncanny knack of living through war as though leafing through pages of an adventure story'.

Truly, this knack persisted for the rest of the author's life; and Adrift On The Open Veld gives the reader a gripping insight into southern African affairs through the eyes of a remarkable man who ended his career as South African High Commissioner in London.

Al Venter regards himself an African a white African, but as much a part of the fascinating and often troubled continent on which he was born as his Zulu and Swahili speaking contemporaries. There is no country in Africa that he has not visited. During his half-century career as a foreign correspondent, working for media outlets on four continents, he has given his version of unfolding events from many of them, for, inter alia, Britain s Jane s Information Group, the 'Daily Express' and 'Daily Mail' of London, United Press International, Geneva s 'Interavia,' the BBC, SABC, NBC (radio), as well as scores of magazines.His love for Africa stems in part from his childhood. At the age of 14 - while on vacation in what was then still Northern Rhodesia - he hitched-hiked back to boarding school in Johannesburg in a race with his schoolmates who travelled by train. And he won. Seven years later, after completing three-years in the navy, he explored East Africa and ended up in Mombasa in Kenya and cadged a lift on a freighter to Canada. Then, after qualifying professionally in London, he travelled overland through West Africa all the way to London. Along the way he met many notables including Ghana s Kwame Nkrumah and the man who hosted Graham Greene at his derelict hotel in Liberia then all but an American colony, where the greenback was the official currency as well as the great Dr Albert Schweitzer. The author spent a week at his jungle clinic at Lambarane in Gabon.Venter includes many of these adventures in this new book. He also delves into some of his military adventures and has invited several of his old colleagues to add some of their thoughts to this bundle of travel, adventure and excitement to create a remarkable insight to a continent that that, though briefly tamed by Europe, was never really subjugated. In that anomaly too, there lies many a stirring yarn.

The underlying goal of Achmat's study - The Afrikaans of the Cape Muslims from 1815 to 1915 was mainly to document the story of Arabic-Afrikaans further, and this time by someone from the Malay Quarter. Therefore, the end result could be described as being a sociohistorical record to evoke a greater awareness of the existence of Cape Muslim Afrikaans as a useful source for broadening our understanding of the linguistic nature of Cape Afrikaans.

Hans van Rensburg se magnetiese persoonlikheid en sy sterk teenkanting teen Suid-Afrika se deelname aan die Tweede Wêreldoorlog het Afrikaners só aangegryp dat die Ossewabrandwag (OB) binne drie jaar na sy stigting by die 300 000 lede gehad het.

In die vroeë 1930's was Van Rensburg egter nog deel van die regering en het 'n blink politieke toekoms vir hom gewink. Hy was die jongste Justisiehoof voordat hy as die jongste administrateur van 'n provinsie aangestel is. Hy was ook 'n regsgeleerde, filosoof, taalkundige en taalstryder, bekwame burokaat, militaris, boer, wildjagter en hengelaar.

Sy lewensverhaal strek oor sewe dekades en hy was by al die belangrikste historiese gebeure van 20ste eeu betrokke-van die Anglo-Boereoorlog tot die apartheidsregering. Dit is 'n tydperk waartydens talle “ismes” hoogty gevier het: imperialisme, nasionalisme, nasionaal-sosialisme, kapitalisme, kommunisme en rassisme.

In die verlede is besprekings van Van Rensburg meestal beperk tot sy rol as OB-leier, terwyl hierdie boek ook gaan ondersoek instel na sy rol in die totstandkoming van die apartheidsbewind. Dit is minder bekend dat hy in die vroeë 1950's as kommissaris van die Groepsgebiederade -'n ankerpunt van apartheidsbeleid -aangestel is. Sy konflik met die verantwoordelike minister, PW Botha, het tot sy bedanking gelei.

Van Rensburg word dikwels as 'n verbete Afrikaner-fascis beskryf, maar die werklikheid is meer kompleks. In vele opsigte was hy dalk eerder 'n gerieflike sondebok vir die Smuts-en Nasionale Party-regerings.

Saam met die sterwe van die ou Suid-Afrika het ook “Afrikaner Volkskapitalisme” gesneuwel, wat veral gekenmerk is deur die einde van die eens magtige Sanlam en sy eweknie in die Noorde, Volkskas, wat eers deel van Rembrandt en toe later deel van Barclays van Brittanje geword het. Hierdie twee organisasies het vir dekades die dinamo van Afrikaner-sake aan die gang gehou.
Terwyl Afrikaner-kapitalisme oor die laaste dekade of wat byna krampagtig gesoek het na nuwe suurstof om te kan oorleef, is daar stil-stil 'n nuwe grondslag gelê vir 'n nuwe geslag Afrikaner-kapitaliste. Nuwe mijardêrs is orals geskep deur aandele-pryse wat ten hemele gejaag is en in die proses het dit in die jongste tyd begin lyk of van hierdie bate-spirale op baie dun ys gebou is en dalk ook groot sarsies bedrog.
Hierdie boek bespreek die huidige ekonomiese klimaat op 'n interessante en toeganklike manier.

Stassen wy o.a. 'n volle hoofstuk aan die aangrypende verhaal van die Dorslandtrekkers en hulle lotgevalle. Tydens hierdie Angola-Boere se verblyf in Angola was daar van boerdery min sprake en probleme was velerlei: 'n problematiese verhouding met die Portugese owerheid, terwyl gebrekkige ekonomiese en opvoedkundige geleenthede, en gevolglike armoede, soms tot ontstellende verval gelei het.
