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.

As Chief Official White House Photographer, Pete Souza spent more time alongside President Barack Obama than almost anyone else. His years photographing the President gave him an intimate behind-the-scenes view of the unique gravity of the Office of the Presidency, and the tremendous responsibility that comes with it. Now, as a concerned citizen observing the Trump administration, he is standing up and speaking out. Shade is a portrait in Presidential contrasts, telling the tale of the Obama and Trump administrations through a series of visual juxtapositions. Here, more than one hundred of Souza's unforgettable images of President Obama deliver new power and meaning when framed by the tweets, news headlines, and quotes that defined the first 500 days of the Trump White House.

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.

South Africa's pre-eminent historian explains the spectacular rise - and probable demise - of the numerical minority that dominated 20th-century South Africa. Award-winning author Hermann Giliomee takes a hard analytical look at this group's dramatic ascent and possible disappearance, as he writes about ethnic entrepreneurship, the 'coloured vote', what really happened prior to the disastrous Rubicon speech and the threat to Afrikaans.

Written in History celebrates the great letters of world history, creative culture and personal life.

Acclaimed historian Simon Sebag Montefiore selects over one hundred letters from ancient times to the twenty-first century: some are noble and inspiring, some despicable and unsettling; some are exquisite works of literature, others brutal, coarse and frankly outrageous; many are erotic, others heartbreaking.

The writers vary from Elizabeth I, Rameses the Great and Leonard Cohen to Emmeline Pankhurst, Mandela, Stalin, Michelangelo, Suleiman the Magnificent and unknown people in extraordinary circumstances - from love letters to calls for liberation, declarations of war to reflections on death.

In the colourful, accessible style of a master storyteller, Montefiore shows why these letters are essential reading: how they enlighten our past, enrich the way we live now - and illuminate tomorrow.

Beginning in 1820, Birmingham details the Portuguese attempt to create a third, African, empire in Angola after the virtual loss of Asia and America. He charts the great flows of migrant people to and from the country that underpinned these colonial efforts and the burgeoning slave trade that went hand in hand with it. The book is a journey through the 20th century in Angola - the playing out of its politics, trade and labour practices against the backdrop of white settlement, and the eventual fall of Portuguese colonialism and Angola‟s struggle for national identity. It concludes with an examination of the civil war that ravaged the country in the 70s and 80s, which ended in 2002, but from whose legacy the Angolan people are still trying to rebuild today.

In Desember 1880, drie jaar ná die Britse anneksasie van die Zuid-Afrikaansche Republiek (ZAR) in 1877, kom bykans 10 000 Transvaalse burgers op die plaas Paardekraal byeen. Die gewigtige besluit word geneem om die regering van dié Boererepubliek eensydig te herstel.

Die Britse owerhede in Pretoria en Londen volhard steeds in hul minagting van die Boere se vryheidstrewe. Wat hierop volg, is drie maande van militêre stryd tussen die grootste koloniale mag van destyds en enkele duisende Boerekrygers. Die verloop en uitkoms is veral vir die Britte ietwat onverwags.

Dié stryd, later bekend as die Eerste Vryheidsoorlog, is aanvanklik beperk tot die Boere se beleëring in onder meer Potchefstroom, Pretoria en Standerton en die gevegte by Bronkhorstspruit en Rooihuiskraal, waarin die Boere feitlik deurgaans die oorhand kry.
Dan behaal die Boere hul deurslaggewende oorwinnings in Natal: eers by Laingsnek en Schuinshoogte voordat die finale, legendariese Slag by Amajuba die skaal finaal in die guns van die Transvalers swaai.

Die skrywer lewer met hierdie boek 'n waardevolle bydrae tot die Suid-Afrikaanse geskiedskrywing. Geen ewewigtige en omvattende boek oor hierdie oorlog is al voorheen gepubliseer nie. Letterlik alle bekende primêre Britse en Boerebronne is benut en word gedokumenteer. Die klem val op die militêre aspekte, maar die diplomatieke intrigue wat uiteindelik bepalend in die uitkoms van die stryd was, 'n uitkoms waarop beide kante met regs trots moes voel, word uitvoerig ontleed.

JACKIE GROBLER was vir bykans 40 jaar as dosent verbonde aan die Departement Historiese en Erfenisstudies aan die Universiteit van Pretoria.

Hel toe en terug vertel die geskiedenis van die oorlog binne die bestek van minder as 170 bladsye en is ingedeel in agt afdelings, elk toegelig met uitsonderlike foto's en toepaslike kaarte. Een afdeling word in die besonder gewy aan Suid-Afrika se deelname aan die oorlog.

Die Groot Oorlog (1914-1918), soos wat die Eerste Wêreldoorlog oorspronklik bekend gestaan het, was waarlik in elke opsig enorm. Nie net het dit tot die dood van nagenoeg tien miljoen soldate gelei nie, dit was tot in daardie stadium ook die omvangrykste oorlog waarby sowat 80 miljoen mense van verskeie lande betrek is. Boonop is nagenoeg 9 miljoen mense permanent vermink, 12 miljoen is ernstig gewond en byna 8 miljoen is krygsgevange geneem.

Louis Scott, 'n historikus en bekende inwoner van Polokwane, se boek oor dié oorlog, Hel toe en terug: Die Eerste Wêreldoorlog, 'n honderd jaar later, het pas verskyn - betyds vir die honderdjarige herdenking van dié verwoestende oorlog. Dit bied vir die eerste keer in Afrikaans 'n omvattende geskiedenis van dié oorlog.

“Vir die soldate wat hierdie lyding oorleef het, was dit hel en dikwels vind mens dat hulle daarna as 'die hel' verwys het - derhalwe die titel van hierdie boek,” skryf die historikus prof. Louis Changuion in die voorwoord van Hel toe en terug.

“Die impak wat dié oorlog op die psige van die mensdom, asook op toekomstige oorlogvoering gehad het, was onbeskryflik en sonder weerga,” skryf Scott. “Die vernietiging en verwoesting wat deur moderne en onbekende wapentuig aangerig is, was buite die begrip van die mens. Vir die soldate was dit die spreekwoordelike 'hel op aarde'.”

Hel toe en terug vertel die geskiedenis van die oorlog binne die bestek van minder as 170 bladsye en is ingedeel in agt afdelings, elk toegelig met uitsonderlike foto's en toepaslike kaarte. Een afdeling word in die besonder gewy aan Suid-Afrika se deelname aan die oorlog.

Dit is waarskynlik die toeganklike styl waarin Scott hierdie geskiedenis benader het wat die grootste aftrek by Jan Publiek sal kry. Die eerste oplaag is reeds uitverkoop en dien as bewys van die gewildheid van dié geskiedenis en Scott se aanbieding van die inligting.

Prof. Bill Nasson van die departement geskiedenis aan die Universiteit Stellenbosch het die boek in September vanjaar vir Netwerk24 geresenseer. Hy meen Scott slaag daarin om die oorlog se verhaal op 'n eenvoudige manier te vertel. Hel toe en terug verskaf volgens Nasson 'n oorsig van “die oorsake en gevolge van die oorlog, die loopgrawe en die voorste linies en die sukkelende tuisfront tot die blywende kulturele en tegnologiese beelde, … hakiesdraad, tenks en natuurlik derduisende begraafplase en miljoene kruise”.

In the hard-fought winter of 1944 the Allies advanced northwards through Italy, but stalled on the fearsome mountainous defences of the Gothic Line. Two men were parachuted in, in an effort to break the deadlock. Their mission: to penetrate deep into enemy territory and lay waste to the Germans' impregnable headquarters. At the eleventh hour mission commanders radioed for David 'The Mad Piper' Kilpatrick to be flown in, resplendent in his tartan kilt. They wanted this fearless war hero to lead the assault, piping Highland Laddie as he went - so leaving an indelible British signature to deter Nazi reprisals. As the column of raiders formed up, there was shocking news. High command radioed through an order to stand down…

'All roads used to lead to Rome. Today, they lead to Beijing.'

When The Silk Roads was published in 2015, it became an instant classic. A major reassessment of world history, it compelled us to look at the past from a different perspective. The New Silk Roads brings this story up to date, addressing the present and future of a world that is changing dramatically.

Following the Silk Roads eastwards, from Europe through to China, by way of Russia and the Middle East, The New Silk Roads provides a timely reminder that we live in a world that is profoundly interconnected. In an age of Brexit and Trump, the themes of isolation and fragmentation permeating the Western world stand in sharp contrast to events along the Silk Roads since 2015, where ties have been strengthened and mutual cooperation established. With brilliant insight, Peter Frankopan takes a fresh look at the network of relationships being formed along the length and breadth of the Silk Roads today, assessing the global reverberations of these continual shifts in the centre of power - all too often absent from headlines in the West.

This important - and ultimately hopeful - book asks us to re-read who we are and where we are in the world, illuminating the themes on which all our lives and livelihood depend.

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.

In the South African House of Assembly, on 6 September 1966, Dimitri Tsafendas stabbed to death Prime Minister Hendrik Verwoerd. Afterwards, Tsafendas was declared to be a schizophrenic who believed a tapeworm lived inside him which controlled his actions, and that he had no political motive for assassinating Verwoerd. Pronounced unfit to stand trial, Tsafendas went down in history as a deranged parliamentary messenger. For fifty years, this story prevailed. However, this book now reveals the truth about Tsafendas; that he was deeply political from an early age.
He was arrested numerous times, starting in Mozambique, the country of his birth. In Portugal, the security police opened a file on him in 1938, when he was aged only twenty. After the assassination, Tsafendas volunteered a series of incontestable political reasons for killing Verwoerd, but these, along with details of his political past, were never allowed to see the light of day. This book reveals the extent of the cover-up by South Africa's authorities and the desperate lengths they went to conceal the existence of Tsafendas's opposition to apartheid. The book exposes one of the great lies in South African history, that Verwoerd was murdered by a mad man. It also offers for the first time a complete biography of this extraordinary man.

Advocate George Bizos characterised Dousemetzis's work on Tsafendas and Verwoerd's assassination as 'monumental' and of being 'of major historical importance for South Africa and as to our understanding of Verwoerd's assassination'. Professor John Dugard said 'South African history should know the truth about Tsafendas. Dousemetzis has done South Africa a service by correcting the historical record.'

Vietnam became the Western world's most divisive modern conflict, precipitating a battlefield humiliation for France in 1954, then a vastly greater one for the United States in 1975. Max Hastings has spent the past three years interviewing scores of participants on both sides, as well as researching a multitude of American and Vietnamese documents and memoirs, to create an epic narrative of an epic struggle. He portrays the set pieces of Dienbienphu, the Tet offensive, the air blitz of North Vietnam, and less familiar battles such as the bloodbath at Daido, where a US Marine battalion was almost wiped out, together with extraordinary recollections of Ho Chi Minh's warriors. Here are the vivid realities of strife amid jungle and paddies that killed 2 million people.

Almost two million volunteers served the Indian army in the Great War, always under British regimental officers, high commanders and staff. 150,000 of them were long-serving pre-war professional soldiers; most of the remainder were wartime recruits, drawn from across South Asia. Half of the Indian soldiers were sent overseas, and those who returned did so with a very different outlook on life - for some it lit the spark for Jihad and for even more it led to a desire for independence. In most histories of the war, the Tommies, pals and poets have dominated the tales - but what of the war as experienced by their Indian counterparts? George Morton-Jack's remarkable, fresh take on the First World War sets this right, telling the Indian army's story of 1914-18…

A collection of Barack Obama's greatest addresses, beginning with his 2002 speech opposing the Iraq War and closing with his emotional farewell address in Chicago in January 2017. As president, Obama's words had the power to move the country, and often the world, as few presidents before him. Whether acting as Commander in Chief or Consoler in Chief, Obama's unique rhetorical style could simultaneously speak to the national mood and change the course of public events. Obama's enduring eloquence, both written and spoken, propelled him to international prominence and ultimately made it possible for the son of a Kenyan man and a white woman from Kansas to become the first black president of the United States.
