Twelve years after fighting against the British during the Anglo-Boer War, Louis Botha went to war on Britain's side. As prime minister of the Union of South Africa at the outbreak of the First World War, Botha agreed to lead his country on a campaign against the Germans across the border in South-West Africa. But first he would have to deal with a conflict at home.

Many Afrikaners balked at the prime minister's decision, and so began a war on two fronts. While Union Defence Force troops gathered on the border and prepared to launch an offensive, a handful of Botha's former comrades incited an Afrikaner rebellion intent on keeping South Africa out of the war, or worse, siding with Germany.

Louis Botha's War is the story of how a former Boer War fighting-general-turned-politician crushed a rebellion, rallied his country's first united army to fight in harsh conditions and defeated the enemy in the Great War's first successful Allied campaign. Botha's actions and these events would determine the fate of South-West Africa, and its relationship with its southern neighbour, for the next eighty years.

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.

'Straatpraatjes', a satirical newspaper column, delivers commentary on early 20th-century Cape society from the perspective of the coloured community. Besides its historical interest, the title is a text of singular importance to Afrikaans language and literature. It is significant in the field of satirical writing in Afrikaans and is an example of Afrikaans used to express black resistance to white domination.

Adv. P.J. Pretrius (die skrywer van Volksverraad) en Adriaan Snyman het saamgespan om Die gety het gedraai te skryf. Dit handel hoofsaaklik oor die profetiese vooruitsigte wat Siener van Rensburg vir ons dag en tyd vir die wêreld en Suid-Afrika voorspel het.
Die gety het gedraai, is 'n boodskap van hoop en dit voorspel ook 'n heel nuwe toekoms vir ons land.
In DEEL I skryf adv. Pretorius in sy voorwoord: “As ons dit wat moet plaasvind verstaan, sal ons verstaan dat Suid-Afrika moet gered word om as verskansing teen die komende verworwenheid vir Christene hier en regoor die wêreld te dien. Ons (Suid-Afrika) word “God se geestelike verbondsark”.
In DEEL II behartig Adriaan Snyman o.m. 'n aantal herontdekte briewe wat Boy Mussmann aan Rhodesiese vriende geskryf het. In hierdie briewe kry ons nie net 'n duidelike beeld dat die gety dwarsoor die wêreld besig is om te draai nie, maar ook dat Suid-Afrika bestem is om die 'Nuwe Kanaän' vir die mensdom te word.

Not everybody is aware that the ships that rounded our coast over the past five centuries are as closely linked to the history of South Africa as gold and diamonds. They were treasures then, they are all treasures today. The difference is that about 3000 ships were lost rounding the Cape of Good Hope, some centuries ago on their way to and from the Spice Islands of the East.
It has taken a rare brand of adventurer to discover the undersea locations of many of them and Al Venter and his friends detail their activities. These range from the earliest Portuguese sailing ships to more contemporary disasters like the sinking of the liner Oceanos off the Wild Coast a few decades ago. Venter has been diving for half a century, so he has a story or two of his own to relate...
Contributors venture much further afield and chapters on a Roman galley sunk off a Tunisian island, a Portuguese Nao that went down in Mombasa harbour, the tragedy of the Royal Navy troopship HMS Birkenhead - where the phrase 'women and children first' was first used and left its legacy in the annals of maritime history are included.
The first chapter is arguably the most interesting, the discovery in 2013 of the submarine HMS Otus, which lies at 110 metres off Durban. The author also tells us about diving on an old ship, a former Royal Navy Loch Class frigate, the SAS Transvaal. She now lies on the bottom of False Bay.
This book covers scores of shipwrecks - East Indiamen, warships from before and after the Napoleonic era, nineteenth-century steamships, trawlers, some modern freighters that courted disaster, whalers and a handful that has never been properly identified.

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 Tall Assassin tells of a reign of terror marked by several political murders in one man's zealous quest to combat communism. For many, General Hendrik van den Bergh was the most feared man in the old South Africa. He was the head of BOSS, the Bureau of State Security, and The Tall Assassin tells of his dealings. The book draws on facts, reconstructing likely scenarios where details were not obtainable. Van den Bergh, who was responsible for the arrest of Nelson Mandela, built a formidable intelligence network linking into MI5, the CIA, Mossad, and French and German intelligence agencies. According to this book, he may have been involved in the assassination of HF Verwoerd, the death of Nic Diederichs, Steve Biko's murder, as well as the murder of Anton Lubowski and Professor Johan Heyns. Two of the most infamous murders in which this book implicates the general are those of Dr Robert Smit and his wife in 1977. This murder mystery has never been solved, but here a compelling explanation is offered for the meaning of the mysterious words 'RAU TEM' painted on the Smits' kitchen wall. From a meeting of minds in an internment camp at Koffiefontein, to the paranoid sixties, the tumultuous seventies and the Information Scandal that rocked the National Party establishment, The Tall Assassin paints a terrifying picture of ideology driving a regime's agents into a moral free fall.

In Broedertwis probeer Albert Blake verstaan waarom hulle lynreg in stryd met mekaar gekom het.

Wie was reg? Christiaan, wat ten alle koste die vryheidstryd wou voer, of Piet, wat 'n einde aan die smart en lyding van die oorlog wou bring?

Daar is tot dusver bitter min geskryf oor die teregstelling van 'verraaiers' en 'joiners' gedurende die Anglo-Boereoorlog, maar toe Albert Blake eers begin krap, het hy op 'n magdom inligting hieroor afgekom.

Sy navorsing is in die boek Boereverraaier saamgevat. Dit is 'n geskiedenis wat mense ongemaklik maak, maar dit moet volgens Blake vertel word. 'Die Anglo-Boereoorlog is immers nie net 'n verhaal van Boerehelde nie,' het hy in 'n onderhoud aan Kirby van der Merwe gesê.

In 1914 het 'n groep Afrikaners in verset teen die Unieregering gekom, aangevuur deur 'Siener' van Rensburg se visioene wat vertel het van die ondergang van die Britse ryk. Toe Louis Botha net ná die aanvang van die Eerste Wêreldoorlog aankondig dat die Unie Duits-Suidwes-Afrika sou inval, was die vet in die vuur en het honderde opstandige manne die wapen opgeneem. Volgens die joernalis L.E. Neame was dit 'one of the most curious and dramatic incidents in the Great War'.

'[The Gulag Archipelago] helped to bring down an empire. Its importance can hardly be exaggerated' Doris Lessing, Sunday Telegraph WITH A NEW FOREWORD BY JORDAN B. PETERSON A vast canvas of camps, prisons, transit centres and secret police, of informers and spies and interrogators but also of everyday heroism, The Gulag Archipelago is Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's grand masterwork. Based on the testimony of some 200 survivors, and on the recollection of Solzhenitsyn's own eleven years in labour camps and exile, it chronicles the story of those at the heart of the Soviet Union who opposed Stalin, and for whom the key to survival lay not in hope but in despair. A thoroughly researched document and a feat of literary and imaginative power, this edition of The Gulag Archipelago was abridged into one volume at the author's wish and with his full co-operation. 'Solzhenitsyn's masterpiece...The Gulag Archipelago helped create the world we live in today' Anne Applebaum THE OFFICIALLY APPROVED ABRIDGEMENT OF THE GULAG ARCHIPELAGO VOLUMES I, II & III

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.
