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
form 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.

In 1942, the Gestapo would stop at nothing to track down a mysterious 'limping lady' who was fighting for the freedom of France. The Nazi chiefs issued a simple but urgent command: 'She is the most dangerous of all Allied spies. We must find and destroy her.' The Gestapo's target was Virginia Hall, a glamorous American with a wooden leg who broke through the barriers against her gender and disability to be the first woman to infiltrate Vichy France for the SOE. In so doing she helped turn the course of the intelligence war. Based on new and extensive research, Sonia Purnell has for the first time uncovered the full secret life of Virginia Hall.

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…

Steve Joubert had always wanted to be a pilot and the only way he could afford to do so, was to join the South African Air Force in the late 1970s. As an adventurous young man with a wicked sense of humour, he tells of the many amusing escapades he had as a trainee pilot. But soon he is sent to fight in the Border War in northern Namibia (then South West Africa) where he is exposed to the carnage
of war. The pilots of the Alouette helicopters were witness to some of the worst scenes of the Border War. Often, they were the first to arrive after a deadly landmine accident. In the fiercest battles their gunships regularly supplied life-saving air cover to troops on the ground.

Africa Reimagined is a passionately argued appeal for a rediscovery of our African identity. Going beyond the problems of a single country, Hlumelo Biko calls for a reorientation of values, on a continental scale, to suit the needs and priorities of Africans. Building on the premise that slavery, colonialism, imperialism and apartheid fundamentally unbalanced the values and indeed the very self- concept of Africans, he offers realistic steps to return to a more balanced Afro-centric identity. Historically, African values were shaped by a sense of abundance, in material and mental terms, and by strong ties of community. The intrusion of religious, economic and legal systems imposed by conquerors, traders and missionaries upset this balance, and the African identity was subsumed by the values of the newcomers.

A bold and innovative social history, The Seed Is Mine concerns the disenfranchised blacks who did so much to shape the destiny of South Africa. 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.

In spite of Cyril Ramaphosa's 'new dawn', there are powerful forces in the ruling party that risk losing everything if corruption and state capture finally do come to an end. At the centre of the old guard's fightback efforts is Ace Magashule, a man viewed by some as South Africa's most dangerous politician.
In this explosive book, investigative journalist Pieter-Louis Myburgh ventures deeper than ever before into Magashule's murky dealings, from his time as a struggle activist in the 1980s to his powerful rule as premier of the Free State province for nearly a decade, and his rise to one of the ANC's most influential positions. Sifting through heaps of records, documents and exclusive source interviews, Myburgh explores Magashule's relationship with the notorious Gupta family and other tender moguls; investigates government projects costing billions that enriched his friends and family but failed the poor; reveals how he was about to be arrested by the Scorpions before their disbandment in the late 2000s; and exposes the methods used to keep him in power in the Free State and to secure him the post of ANC secretary-general.

Most tellingly, Myburgh pieces together a pack of leaked emails and documents to reveal shocking new details on a massive Free State government contract and Magashule's dealings with a businessman who was gunned down in Sandton in 2017. These files seem to lay bare the methods of a man who usually operated without leaving a trace.

Gangster State is an unflinching examination of the ANC's top leadership in the post-Jacob Zuma era, one that should lead readers to a disconcerting conclusion: When it comes to the forces of capture, South Africa is still far from safe.

“If ever one wondered whether the life of a single man could illuminate a century, [this] brilliant biography … proves the point.” — Carmel Schrire, The Boston Globe

“An epic … [that] tells of the loss of human potential generated by a politics that surrendered generosity and openness to self-interest and bigotry. It reveals the way an ordinary man can survive with dignity in such a world.” — Vincent Crapanzano, the New York Times

“A magnificent book [with] implications beyond its modest claims … This remarkable story compels foreboding but also kindles hope, for it shows the extraordinary courage of 'ordinary' men under severe difficulties.” — Eugene Genovese, Emory University

“[Van Onselen] teases out the subtleties of the paternalistic relationships between rural whites and blacks which gave rise to real friendships but also to much betrayal, anger, and humiliation . . . It is a monumental masterpiece of research, and a poetic evocation of the human spirit to survive … ” — Linda Ensor, Business Day

RW Johnson's bestselling book How Long Will South Africa Survive? was published at the height of the Zuma presidency. Since then, Cyril Ramaphosa has taken over as president and there have been some attempts to clean up government. But the brief period of 'Ramaphoria' is over and the threat to both the economy and the dream of a non-racial democracy is as real as ever. As national elections loom, Johnson examines the state of the nation with pinpoint accuracy. On the one hand state-owned institutions are near collapse, municipalities are defunct and civil strife is rampant. On the other, Ramaphosa and his team have come up with a plan to curb corruption and create growth and prosperity. But will it work?

Adam Habib, the most prominent and outspoken university official through the recent student protests, takes a characteristically frank view of the past three years on South Africa's campuses in this new book. Habib charts the progress of the student protests that erupted on Wits University campus in late 2015 and raged for the better part of three years, drawing on his own intimate involvement and negotiation with the students, and also records university management and government responses to the events. He critically examines the student movement and individual student leaders who emerged under the banners #feesmustfall and #Rhodesmustfall, and debates how to achieve truly progressive social change in South Africa, on our campuses and off.

This book is both an attempt at a historical account and a thoughtful reflection on the issues the protests kicked up, from the perspective not only of a high-ranking member of university management, but also Habib as political scientist with a background as an activist during the struggle against apartheid. Habib moves between reflecting on the events of the last three years on university campuses, and reimagining the future of South African higher education.

In this explosive book, Wolff provides a wealth of new details about the chaos in the Oval Office. Among the revelations: - What President Trump's staff really thinks of him - What inspired Trump to claim he was wire-tapped by President Obama - Why FBI director James Comey was really fired - Why chief strategist Steve Bannon and Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner couldn't be in the same room - Who is really directing the Trump administration's strategy in the wake of Bannon's firing - What the secret to communicating with Trump is - What the Trump administration has in common with the movie The Producers Never before has a presidency so divided the American people. Brilliantly reported and astoundingly fresh, Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury shows us how and why Donald Trump has become the king of discord and disunion.

Between 1830 and 1927, as the last generation of blacks born into slavery was reaching maturity, a small group of industrious, tenacious, and daring men and women broke new ground to attain the highest levels of financial success. Although Madam C. J. Walker was given the title of America‟s first female black millionaire, she was not. She was the first, however, to flaunt and openly claim her wealth - a dangerous and revolutionary act. Nearly all the unforgettable personalities in this amazing collection were often attacked, demonized, or swindled out of their wealth. Black Fortunes illuminates as never before the birth of the black business titan.

Die gesoute geskiedskrywer hanteer inderdaad 'n 'ongeskrewe hoofstuk' - soos die boek se subtitel aandui - in die Suid-Afrikaanse politieke geskiedenis. Dit gaan oor die eggenotes van manlike Afrikaner plitieke leiers sedert uniewording tot 1994. Professor Geyser skryf weliswaar deernisvol en met bewondering oor baie van die dertien vroue, maar h skroom nie leiersfigure, bevat die boek ook heelwat insiggewende inligting oor die leiers self, veral oor hul lewens binne huweliks- en gesinsverband.
Deon Geldenhuys is professor in politiek aan die Universiteit van Johannesburg.
