A fresh, different perspective on South African politics. Many common political arguments come pre-packaged in a very old and dusty box - and in this book, Sizwe Mpofu-Walsh sets out to dismantle that box. The self-evident truths are not so inarguable. He argues that free education is far from impossible, land reform is not the first step to chaos, and the media is not free...In this incisive, informed book we find challenges to commonly held opinions and new solutions to old problems.

Die keiser loop in sy pragkleed deur die skare. Net slim mense kan dié kleed sien. 'Hoera vir die keiser se nuwe kleed!' juig die mense. Tot 'n seuntjie verbaas uitroep: 'Maar die keiser is dan kaal!'

Illegally trafficked cigarettes makes more money than cocaine, heroin, marijuana and guns. Extremely lucrative, yet relatively low risk. Not surprising then that contraband cigarettes are the Taliban's second biggest income after heroin.

A provocative, original and compelling history of catastrophes and their consequences.
Disasters are by their very nature hard to predict. Pandemics, like earthquakes, wildfires, financial crises and wars, are not normally distributed; there is no cycle of history to help us anticipate the next catastrophe. But when disaster strikes, we ought to be better prepared than the Romans were when Vesuvius erupted or medieval Italians when the Black Death struck. We have science on our side, after all. Yet the responses of a number of devloped countries to a new pathogen from China were badly bungled. Why?

The facile answer is to blame poor leadership. While populist rulers have certainly performed poorly in the face of the pandemic, more profund problems have been exposed by COVID-19. Only when we understand the central challenge posed by disaster in history can we see that this was also a failure of an administrative state and of economic elites that had grown myopic over much longer than just a few years. Why were so many Cassandras for so long ignored? Why did only some countries learn the right lessons from SARS and MERS? Why do appeals to 'the science' often turn out to be mere magical thinking?

Drawing from multiple disciplines, including history, economics and network science, Doom: The Politics Of Catastrophe is a global post mortem for a plague year. Drawing on preoccupations that have shaped his books for some twenty years, Niall Ferguson describes the pathologies that have done us so much damage: from imperial hubris to bureaucratic sclerosis and online schism. COVID-19 was a test failed by countries who must learn some serious lessons from history if they are to avoid the doom of irreversible decline.

Enemy Of The People is the first definitive account of Zuma's catastrophic misrule, offering eyewitness descriptions and cogent analysis of how South Africa was brought to its knees - and how a nation fought back.
When Jacob Zuma took over the leadership of the ANC one muggy Polokwane evening in December 2007, he inherited a country where GDP was growing by more than 6% per annum, a party enjoying the support of two-thirds of the electorate, and a unified tripartite alliance. Today, South Africa is caught in the grip of a patronage network, the economy is floundering and the ANC is staring down the barrel of a defeat at the 2019 general elections. How did we get here?

Zuma first brought to heel his party, Africa's oldest and most revered liberation movement, subduing and isolating dissidents associated with his predecessor Thabo Mbeki. Then saw the emergence of the tenderpreneur and those attempting to capture the state, as well as a network of family, friends and business associates that has become so deeply embedded that it has, in effect, replaced many parts of government. Zuma opened up the state to industrial-scale levels of corruption, causing irreparable damage to state enterprises, institutions of democracy, and the ANC itself.

But it hasn't all gone Zuma's way. Former allies have peeled away. A new era of activism has arisen and outspoken civil servants have stepped forward to join a cross-section of civil society and a robust media. As a divided ANC square off for the elective conference in December, where there is everything to gain or to lose, award-winning journalists Adriaan Basson and Pieter du Toit offer a brilliant and up-to-date account of the Zuma era.

Africa has received $1.2 trillion in development assistance since 1990. Even though donors have spent more than $1 000 per person over these 30 years, the average income of sub-Saharan Africans has increased by just $350. The continent has very little to show for this money, some of which has been consumed by the donors themselves, much of it by local governments and elites. There must be a better way to address the poverty pandemic. Expensive Poverty is focused on answering the trillion-dollar question: why have decades of spending had such a small impact on improving the lives of the poor? Whatever the area of aid expenditure - humanitarian, governance, military, development - the overall intention should be the same: to try to reach the point that aid is no longer necessary. Expensive Poverty lays out how to get there.

Today, Facebook is nearly unrecognizable from the simple website Zuckerberg's first built from his dorm room in his Sophomore year. It has grown into a tech giant, the largest social media platform and one of the biggest companies in the world, with a valuation of more than $576 billion and almost 3 billion users. There is no denying the power and omnipresence of Facebook in daily life. And in light of recent controversies surrounding election-influencing fake news accounts, the handling of its users' personal data and growing discontent with the actions of its founder and CEO, never has the company been more central to the national conversation.
Based on years of exclusive reporting and interviews with Facebook's key executives and employees, including Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg, Steven Levy's sweeping narrative digs deep into the whole story of the company that has changed the world and reaped the consequences.

What does our future hold? Will the ANC split within the next five years? Could the DA rule the country in 2024? Will the EFF form an alliance with the ANC? What should we do to make our economy grow at levels that will impact on poverty and inequality? Will we become a more tolerant or a more violent society?
In Fate of the Nation scenario expert Jakkie Cilliers answers all these and many other questions. He has developed three detailed scenarios for our immediate future and beyond - Bafana Bafana, Nation Divided and Mandela Magic.

According to Cilliers the ANC is in many ways paralysed by the power struggle between what he calls the Traditionalists (supporters of Jacob Zuma) and the Reformers (led by Cyril Ramaphosa and others). This power struggle leads to policy confusion, poor leadership and general ineptitude in the civil service. Key to which scenario will become our reality is who will be elected to the ANC's top leadership at their national conference in December 2017. Whichever group wins will determine what our future holds. We could also see a compromise grouping being selected, Cilliers says, in which case the Bafana Bafana scenario - where we simply muddle along as a country - is the strongest possibility.

A book for all concerned South Africans.

In 2010 government spokesperson Themba Maseko was called to a meeting at the Gupta's Saxonwold house and asked by Ajay Gupta to divert the government's entire advertising budget to their media company. When he refused to do so, he was forced to resign from government a few months later.
When, in 2016, the ANC NEC called on members with evidence of wrongdoing by the Guptas to make an official submission to the party, Maseko was the only person to do so. His statement helped to expose state capture at a time when former president Jacob Zuma vehemently denied it and helped to set in motion the process that culminated in the Zondo Commission of Inquiry into State Capture.
This deeply personal and revelatory account describes the challenges faced by a civil servant who refused to be 'captured' and his disillusionment at how the principles of the struggle were undermined during the Zuma era, as well as the impact his whistleblowing
had on his personal and professional life.

Set against the raging land debate, For the Love of the Land introduces South Africans to the unsung heroes of the agricultural industry. A diverse crop of farmers from across the country share heartwarming stories, at times surviving generational tragedies that plague our past. From the farms and agri-businesses who feed South Africa, the book focuses on the power of land to promote nation building and social cohesion by telling stories that are often overlooked by broader society.

A much-needed account of our farmers' commitment to the earth and South Africa, truly saluting the unsung heroes of agriculture - Nick Serfontein, Free State Farmer of the Year, wrote an open letter to President Cyril Ramaphosa, asking him to include commercial farmers in plans for effective land reform.

Set against the backdrop of our heated land reform debate, this book proves that farming is often a labour of love - Gloria Serobe, Founding Member and CEO of Women Investment Portfolio Holdings.

From Anger to Action tells the stories of the citizens' movements charting new paths to tackle the big global challenges that lie behind the political upheavals of our times. Drawing on candid insights from citizens, activists, and innovators, and their own experiences as leaders of internationally recognized advocacy organizations, the authors give an insider account of the battle for change and how it can be won - as well as trenchant criticism of where traditional civil society has lost its way and needs renewal. While unflinching on the dangers of the current political crises, the book offers hard-edged hope and a vision for citizen-led change to reshape our fractured politics. We meet communities in economically-battered US towns welcoming refugees, and LGBTI activists celebrating the success of their campaign focus on love. We hear from Syrian activists reaching across impossible divides between jihadists and Assad supporters, and go behind the scenes with Mongolian entrepreneurs preserving heritage skills by selling ethically-traded Yak-fibre suits on London's Saville Row (yes, that's really true). We go inside the international network of frenzied tax justice campaigners breaking open the secrecy enabling global elites to evade tax on an industrial scale, and using social media to drive change. Lamb and Jackson explore how citizens' movements are transforming our global politics, refashioning internationalism and fighting back against narrow nationalism. The book analyses why some movements secure lasting change - and others fail. And they show how these insights could shape a wider strategy for grassroots-up transformation. From Anger to Action will be of interest to social activists and anyone interested in social movements, global change, and civil society.

Since 1994 the post-apartheid South African state has been under constant pressure to transform the inherited institutional architecture of the apartheid state. Various formations of the state had to be reorganized and restructured at an institutional level to meet the imperatives of the new Constitution and developmental needs of the South African society. This transformation has taken place simultaneously with the expansion of the social and economic safety net to include the poor and previously disadvantaged. These reform pressures have resulted in the redefinition of the purpose, role and nature of operation of the new state.
