An intimate self-portrait encompassing the life, times, and career of one of the most transformative individuals--let alone athletes--of recent times.
Journeying from a blue-collar childhood to shatter tennis's exclusive country-club culture, Billie Jean King paved the way for a more open, inclusive, and equal sports environment. In her memoir, she takes us behind the scenes of the pro tennis tour, through her five years as the top-ranked woman in the world, her twenty Wimbledon championships, her thirty-nine grand-slam titles, and her watershed defeat of Bobby Riggs in the famous 'Battle of the Sexes.'

With her ever-present candour, King also describes the high personal price of public greatness. We see how she struggled to live authentically and the challenges she grappled with beneath the mask of fame, including entrenched sexism, an eating disorder and struggles with her sexual identity until her 'outing' by a former lover led her to embrace her true self. We come to understand how, through it all, her unshakeable integrity, resilience, and sense of purpose allowed her time and again to overcome her obstacles, and, at a few dire moments, to rebound from near ruin.

Hers is the story of a pathbreaking fighter for equality, world-class athlete, and an indomitable spirit.

What does it take to win gold at the Olympic Games? How many years of hard work and dedication does it take to prepare for such a feat? How many disappointments do you have to endure on this journey?
Danielle Brittain has walked this journey over and over again - her two sons won Olympic gold for South Africa in rowing, all four of her sons have rowed at top levels, and she is currently the team doctor for the SA rowing team. Danielle has faced her own battles with cancer and then watched as her son battled Hodgkin's Lymphoma during his Olympic training and overcame it and went on to win gold after his recovery in this high-performance sport.
The Olympic wins for the South African teams at the 2012 London Olympics and 2016 Rio Olympics were iconic moments for South Africa and Brittain's descriptions of what the wins meant for the individuals in the teams, their families, the coaching staff and ordinary South Africans demonstrate the power of sport to unite the country.
A rowing story, a family story, a cancer survival story, a South African story - and the story of a mother watching it all unfold.

Ja-Nee is not just an insider's account of what it means to be a young Springbok on the darkest day in South African rugby history -the afternoon when Willie John McBride's 1974 British Lions scored five tries to beat the Boks 28-9 at a packed Loftus Versfeld - but an insightful and sometimes hilarious study of two very different cultures.
After a shock first test defeat against the Lions, in an atmosphere of panic, the selectors made seven changes to the Springbok side and Macdonald, the 24-year-old eighth man who played for the University of Cape Town and Western Province, was called up for the second test. Weaving his own experience of the test through the commentaries of Gerhard Viviers, the voice of Springbok Rugby, SABC's Kim Shippey and BBC's Alun Williams, Macdonald tells the minute-by-minute story of that catastrophic winter afternoon.
With insight and unusual humour, his account explores the myths of Springbok rugby, sharing his theories about the badge, the jersey and the resolute Afrikaans rugby players who had never lost to the Lions before. Written nearly 50 years after the event in an idiosyncratic and colloquial style, Macdonald offers his impressions of a gifted generation of Lions, Phil Bennett, the unsmiling Mervyn Davies and the effervescent Gareth Edwards.
This is rugby history as it has never been written before. It's the story of a rugby match from the inside, and of a series defeat that would traumatise the South African rugby establishment for years. A compelling rugby story that transcends rugby.
About the author:
Dugald Macdonald played rugby for Western Province 1972-1974 and was capped for the Springboks against the British Lions in 1974. He continued playing rugby in Italy, for Oxford University, and then three years playing for Stade Toulousain, France. In 2001 he completed a 5 000-kilometre rowing trip across the Atlantic and four years later, he trekked to the North Magnetic Pole. He lives in Cape Town.

In 1891 the first rugby football team from the British Isles embarked on a tour of South Africa. This tour began a tradition that survived the financial insecurities of the pioneer years, two World Wars, sports boycotts, and the birth of the professional era.
This book covers the tours from when matches were played on dusty fields and rugby players were transported in carts over poor roads in the Karoo, in coaches that broke down and on slow trains that, on occasion, caught fire. Tours between the World Wars when South Africa dominated the rugby landscape across the world. It follows the famous clashes of 1955 when, for the first time, a crowd in excess of 90 000 attended a rugby match. It deals with the all-conquering 1974 Lions led by the legendary Willie John McBride. Finally, it focuses on the two Lions tours that have visited these shores in 1997 and 2009 following the advent of full democracy and re-admittance to world rugby.
To be a Lion is to reach the pinnacle of rugby achievement in the British Isles. To tour South Africa, where rugby tours originated, is the crowning glory of one's career. To face the Lions has always been, and will always remain, one of the greatest honours for any player who dons the green and gold of the Springboks.
This carefully researched book is the first ever published to focus on all the matches played by the Lions in the 130 years of contests in southern Africa and recounts famous victories, agonizing defeats and nail-biting draws! A welcome addition to any rugby fan's bookshelf.

Chris Schoeman co-authored the autobiographies of Springbok rugby legends Danie Gerber, Frik du Preez (South Africa's Player of the Century), Os du Randt and Dawie de Villiers; other titles include Rugby Behind Barbed Wire; Legends of the Ball; The No.10s: South Africa's Finest Flyhalves; and South Africa's Rugby Legends: The Amateur Years. He has also written several books on the Anglo-Boer War, World War I and South African regional histories.
David McLennan is a well-known rare book dealer in Cape Town who has written a number of books related to rugby in South Africa. Together they are the authors of Rugby at Newlands: A History in 50 Test Matches (2015) and Rugby at Ellis Park: A History (2017).

In 2018 Captain Louis Rudd MBE walked into the history books when he finished a solo, unsupported crossing of Antarctica, pulling a 130 kg sledge laden with his supplies for more than 900 miles. Louis' skills had been honed in the SAS, on operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, but now - in the most hostile environment on earth - they would be tested like never before. Alone on the ice, Louis battled through whiteouts, 50 mph gales and temperatures of -30 degrees Celsius. It would take all his mental strength to survive. In this gripping book Louis reveals how a thirst for adventure saw him join the Royal Marines at sixteen and then pass the SAS selection course at only twenty-two. He describes his first gruelling polar expedition with legendary explorer Lieutenant Colonel Henry Worsley in 2011 and the leadership challenges he faced a few years later when he led a team of Army Reservists across Antarctica. And he takes us with him step by painful step as he pushes himself to the limit, travelling alone on his epic and lonely trek across the continent's treacherous ice fields and mountains. With edge-of-the-seat storytelling, Endurance is an awe-inspiring account of courage and resilience by a remarkable man.

“There will be a black Springbok over my dead body.” — Dr Danie Craven, President of the South African Rugby Board, 1969
Just a year after the controversial D'Oliveira affair, the organised disruption of the all-white 1969/70 South African rugby and cricket tours to Britain represented a significant challenge to apartheid politics. Led by future cabinet minister Peter Hain, the 'Stop the Seventy Tour' campaign brought about the cancellation of both tours, presaging white South Africa's expulsion from the Olympics and the end of apartheid sport altogether.

With his brand of attention-grabbing, direct action sports protest, the 19-year-old Hain emerged as a hero to some and enemy to others. Now, reflecting on these experiences with fifty years of hindsight, Lord Hain, together with South Africa's foremost sports historian and fellow anti-apartheid activist André Odendaal, shows how decades of relentless international and domestic campaigning for equality led to a Springbok team captained by black athlete Siya Kolisi winning the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

Interspersing a wide range of examples with personal testimony, Pitch Battles explores the themes of sport, globalisation and resistance from the deep past to the present day. Published in the same year as the Stop The Tour documentary from acclaimed director Louis Myles, this compelling story of sacrifice, struggle and triumph reveals how sport should never be divorced from politics or society's values.
