Researched and written by two historians well respected in concentric circles, this hilarious take on our collective past reveals stunning new discoveries and fascinating new figures, from Koos van Doosch, the cheese-pimp who settled the Cape a year before Van Riebeeck, to Shaka's lesser-known brother, Nigel Zulu, who just wanted to be a florist. You'll discover how the winner of the Mr Mielie Board beauty pageant came to rule South Africa, and you'll celebrate our greatest triumphs, like when Matt Damon and Morgan Freeman won the Rugby World Cup in 1995. From small fat gold-plated rhinos in Mapungubwe to small fat gold-plated politicians in Mangaung, The Unauthorised History of South Africa tells you the history you always wanted to know but were too afraid to ask.
