Die debat oor emigrasie is so oud soos Suid-Afrika se demokrasie self. Toe die “nuwe Suid-Afrika” in 1994 aangebreek het, het talle mense die land verlaat uit vrees vir wat 'n meerderheidsbewind sou inhou. Nog meer het in die jare sedertdien getrek opsoek na 'n beter lewe en Suid-Afrikaanse gemeenskappe is nou in plekke soos Kanada, Engeland en Australië te vinde. Vandag, 25 jaar ná demokrasie en in die lig van kwynende optimisme oor die toekoms van die land, is daar nuwe lewe in die debat oor emigrasie. Hierdie keer word dit nie net in reaksionêre kringe gevoer nie, maar om die eetkamertafels van meerdere Suid-Afrikaners. Met die realiteit van nege vermorste jare wat aan ons beursies en toekomsmoontlikhede knaag, en die aanloklike geleenthede wat die globale ekonomie bied, vra al hoe meer mense, “Moet ek waai?”
In Moet ons waai? takel meer as 20 van Suid-Afrika se voorste meningsvormers, insluitend Piet Croucamp, Dana Snyman, Melanie Verwoerd en Jonathan Jansen, hierdie vraag. Dit is poging tot insig oor 'n kwessie wat swaar weeg op ons kollektiewe psige, en 'n uitdaging aan elke persoon wat dit oorweeg om te waai, reeds gegaan het of besluit het om te bly om te floreer as Suid-Afrikaners waar ook al hulle hulself mag bevind.

Alet Law is die nuusbrief- en leserbetrokkenheidsredakteur by News24 en voormalige meningsredakteur. Sy het 'n PhD in politieke kommunikasie aan die Universiteit van Kaapstad verwerf.

As national director of public prosecutions from 2005 to 2007, Advocate Vusi Pikoli pursued criminal charges against the current president of South Africa, Jacob Zuma, and the convicted former national police commissioner, Jackie Selebi. It was his dogged determination to bring the country's top cop to account that ultimately saw Pikoli removed from office and the subject of a public inquiry into his suspension.

My Second Initiation traces Pikoli's journey from his first graduation to manhood in the hills of the Eastern Cape, to his second life-shaping experience in the corridors of power in government.

Pikoli has a deeply ingrained loyalty to the Constitution of the country and a keenly developed sense of justice, cultivated on the politically aware streets and rugby fields of New Brighton township. He recounts how he fled with his ANC unit into exile and spent 10 years away from his home and his family, suffering the loss of a child and of a man he considered a brother.

He provides an insider's perspective on cases that have dominated discussion over the past decade from the Arms Deal and the Scorpions to the Brett Kebble murder, Travelgate, the Special Browse Mole Report and the Hoax E-mail saga. Pikoli reveals how he grappled with the dilemma of prosecuting friends and comrades, how he navigated through repeated attempts at political interference and how he confronted one of his persecutors in a poignant face-to-face encounter.



'An account that is as bold, honest and truthful as it is painful and discomforting. Vusi Pikoli is a person of unquestionable integrity, for which South Africa will be eternally grateful.' - Barney Pityana

Dispossession of fertile, mineral-rich land is correctly repeated as the root cause of the economic precarity of Black people in South Africa.
Colonial wars are rightly foregrounded but in a way that frames black people as having existed outside of organised enterprise.
This book builds and adds dimension to the picture of black people's economic participation, taking the narrative from pre-colonial mining and spanning the colonial and apartheid periods, detailing tactics of economic exclusion.

A number one Irish bestseller, and winner of the Popular Non-Fiction Book of the Year at the Irish Book Awards In this fascinating and thought-provoking book, Professor Luke O'Neill grapples with life's biggest questions and tells us what science has to say about them. Covering topics from global pandemics to gender, addiction to euthanasia, Luke O'Neill's easy wit and clever pop-culture references deconstruct the science to make complex questions accessible. Arriving at science's definitive answers to some of the most controversial topics human beings have to grapple with, Never Mind the B#ll*ocks, Here's the Science is a celebration of science and hard facts in a time of fake news and sometimes unhelpful groupthink. 'A celebration of scientific fact in an era characterised by nebulous subjectivity' Irish Times

'A sensitive expose that illustrates the complexities of modern homelessness. Moving, poetic and as rousing as Orwell.' Cash Carraway, author of Skint Estate This book will finally give a face and a voice to those we so easily forget in our society. It will tell the highly personal, human and sometimes surprisingly uplifting stories of real people struggling in a crumbling system. By telling their stories, we will come to know these people; to know their hopes and fears, their complexities and their contradictions. We will learn a little more about human relationships, in all their messiness. And we'll learn how, with just a little too much misfortune, any of us could find ourselves homeless, even become one of the hundreds of people dying on Britain's streets. As the number of rough sleepers skyrockets across the UK, No Fixed Abode by Maeve McClenaghan will also bring to light many of the ad-hoc projects attempting to address the problem. You will meet some of the courageous people who dedicate their lives to saving the forgotten of our society and see that the smallest act of kindness or affection can save a life. This is a timely and important book encompassing wider themes of inequality and austerity measures; through the prism of homelessness, it offers a true picture of Britain today - and shows how terrifyingly close to breaking point we really are.

How did Einstein help create Eskom? Why can an Indonesian volcano explain the Great Trek? What do King Zwelithini and Charlemagne have in common?
These are some of the questions Johan Fourie explores in this entertaining, accessible economic history spanning everything from the human migration out of Africa 100 000 years ago to the Covid-19 pandemic. Our Long Walk to Economic Freedom is an engaging guide to complex debates about the roots and reasons for prosperity, the march of opportunity versus the crushing boot of exploitation, and why the builders of societies - rather than the burglars ¬- ultimately win out.
Join the author on this enriching journey through an African-centred history and the story of our long walk towards a brighter future.
'This is the first book to bring Africa in from the margins and place it centrally into the big narratives of world economic history. The subject will never be the same again.' - James Robinson, co-author of Why Nations Fail

'In this deeply thoughtful but broadly accessible tour of global economic history from the time of our savanna-roaming ancestors to the pandemic, Fourie distils the essence of a vast body of recent economic history research into teachable nuggets that raise as many questions as they answer. The African focus of his presentation will be instructive to many, and the prose delightfully engaging for all. His commitment to understanding the historical roots of prosperity and ensuring its wide distribution in the future makes this also one of the most humane economic histories I have read.' - Anne McCants, Professor of History, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and President of the International Economic History Association

Why solving the information problem should be at the core of our pandemic response: essential reading about the long-term implications of our current crisis. COVID-19 is caused by a virus. The COVID-19 pandemic is caused by a lack of good information. A pandemic is essentially an information problem: this is the enlightening and provocative idea at the heart of this book. If we solve the information problem, argues economist Joshua Gans, we can defeat the virus. For example, when we don't know who is infected, we have to act as if everyone is infected. If we actively manage the information problem--if we know who is infected and with whom they had contact--we can suppress the virus or buy time for vaccine development. This is an expanded version of an eBook originally published as Economics in the Age of COVID-19.

'Johannesburg - Late on Friday night, Iqbal Survé phoned Mandla Mandela, the ailing statesman's grandson: “Tell Madiba, Independent's coming home,” he said. “If there's one thing that will make him get better faster, it's this,” the younger Mandela responded.'
This is how one of Independent Newspapers' titles told its readers in April 2013 that it had been bought by Iqbal Survé's Sekunjalo Independent Media Consortium for R2 billion.
The journalists of South Africa's biggest newspaper firm, which counted The Star, Cape Times and The Mercury among its titles, were optimistic that new, local ownership would mark an end to the callous management of its Irish overlords of the previous two decades.
But the day after Nelson Mandela died, a storm engulfed the group when Survé fired Cape Times editor Alide Dasnois amid accusations of disrespect towards Mandela although many pointed to a Cape Times story about one of his companies as the real reason for his ire.
In the dramatic days that followed, Independent's newsrooms across the country were torn apart by suspicion, recriminations and what many of the journalists believed was a witch hunt to expel those not prepared to toady to Survé.
Now Dasnois and Chris Whitfield, who was head of the Cape papers at the time of the ownership change, tell the inside story of the Survé reign.

From Nobel Prize-winning economist and bestselling author Joseph Stiglitz, this account of the dangers of free market fundamentalism reveals what has gone so wrong, but also shows us a way out.
We all have the sense that our economy tilts toward big business, but as Joseph E. Stiglitz explains in People, Power and Profits, a few corporations have come to dominate entire sectors, contributing to skyrocketing inequality and slow growth. This is how the financial industry has managed to write its own regulations, tech companies have accumulated reams of personal data with little oversight, and government has negotiated trade deals that fail to represent the best interests of workers. Too many have made their wealth through exploitation of others rather than through wealth creation. If something isn't done, new technologies may make matters worse, increasing inequality and unemployment.
Stiglitz identifies the true sources of wealth and increases in standards of living, based on learning, advances in science and technology, and the rule of law. He shows that the assault on the judiciary, universities, and the media undermines the very institutions that have long been the foundation of economic prosperity and democracy. Helpless though we may feel today, we are far from powerless. In fact, the economic solutions are often quite clear. We need to exploit the benefits of markets while taming their excesses, making sure that markets work for people and not the other way around. If enough rally behind this agenda for change, we can create a progressive capitalism that will recreate a shared prosperity.
Stiglitz shows how a decent middle-class life can once again be attainable by all.

State capture has become something of a buzzword in South Africa. But to understand the current situation in our country, it is vital to understand the recent past. This book, aimed at ordinary South Africans, offers explanations to important issues:
• Exactly what is state capture, and how did it happen in South Africa?
• How prominent state-owned enterprises collapsed during former President Zuma's nine “wasted years” in office
• The role of the Gupta family and how this was exposed via the #GuptaLeaks
• How and why Parliament failed in its oversight duties to prevent state capture from happening, despite plenty of evidence and recommendations to take action against certain SOE executives and boards, certain MPs and even prominent ministers
• The argument for much-needed electoral and parliamentary reform
• What MPs can do to force Parliament to act against corruption, tax abuse and the abuse of power

The book also shares insights into the important work a small team of activists at the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (OUTA) is doing to prevent state capture from happening again, and aims to start the vital conversation around Parliament's failure to serve the country, and how to prevent this from happening again.

Plofbare opinies was nog altyd 'n onderskeidende kenmerk van Afrikaners. Politici, skrywers, joernaliste en die man op straat was nog nooit skaam om by bekgevegte betrokke te raak nie. Tradisioneel was die gedrukte media die forum waar polemieke uitgewoed het. In die vroegste dae aan die Kaap is die slawekwessie driftig gedebatteer, en toe die Voortrekkers hulle skrede noordwaarts gerig het, het teenstrydige argumente uitgespeel in een van die vroeë Suid-Afrikaanse koerante, Grocott's Mail.
Die waarde van gesprekke in die aanloop en nadraai van geskiedkundige gebeure soos rebellies, opstande en oorloë kan nie onderskat word nie. Politieke verwikkelinge soos Suid- Afrikaners se gesprekke met die ANC toe dié organisasie nog verban was, het die hele land aan die stry gehad. Om nie te praat van Afrikaans en sy rasse-bagasie of kerksake soos die Belharbelydenis en die hantering van gay lidmate nie. En wie sal die spanning wat tussen H.F. Verwoerd en N.P. van Wyk Louw ontstaan het met die pluimsaad-polemiek, vergeet? Piekniek by Dingaan en die Voëlvry-beweging het nie net opskuddings op kultuurgebied veroorsaak nie. Ook het die eggo's van kwessies soos “gemengde” sport en boikotte, en die skandes wat sportsterre soos Hansie Cronjé, Joost van der Westhuizen en Oscar Pistorius veroorsaak het, in alle sfere van die samelewing weerklink.

Misdaad soos plaasaanvalle en -moorde is daagliks op Suid-Afrikaners se lippe, net soos wat daar steeds oor figure soos Daisy de Melker, Gert van Rooyen en Joey Haarhoff gegons word. In Polemieke bied Gabriël Botma lesers 'n blik op bekende én byna vergete woordtwiste wat die Suid-Afrikaanse geskiedenis help slyp het. Karakters wat 'n sentrale rol in Afrikanerpolemieke gespeel het, word aan die vergetelheid ontruk, en hedendaagse polemici kom onder die loep. Binne die konteks van Afrikaner-nasionalisme het dié strydpunte deurgaans gelei tot groter insig onder betrokkenes en lesers, maar terselfdertyd is die verdelingslyne wat van ver af kom, dieper afgeëts.

Corruption cost taxpayers around R1.5 trillion during Jacob Zuma's spell as president of South Africa. Despite attempts by the police, the courts and the Public Protector to stem the rising tide of graft in South Africa, several politicians were rewarded with high office after stealing the aspirations of millions of people.
Fred Daniel, one citizen among many targeted by predator politicians, stood up against the scourge. The retaliation he faced after attempts by corrupt politicians to grab his nature reserve in Mpumalanga included vandalism, arson, smears and death threats. His nemesis is Deputy President D.D. Mabuza, who presided over several departments in the province that were wrecked by graft before he ascended to the position of the second most powerful politician in the country. Fred has won more than twenty cases over the past fifteen years in magistrates' and high courts where his claims of corruption-related harassment were found credible. The North Gauteng High Court is hearing his damages claim against Mabuza, government departments and officials amounting to more than R1 billion. It stems from Fred's exposure of fraudulent land scams allegedly orchestrated by Mabuza.

At great personal cost, Fred and his family stood up to corruption. They endured the loss of a livelihood and their home - and the fear that follows when the government places a target on the back of a citizen blowing the whistle on its misdeeds. Fred will not back down. For him, failure is not an option.

As the data economy grows in power, Carissa Veliz exposes how our privacy is eroded by big tech and governments, why that matters and what we can do about it. The moment you check your phone in the morning you are giving away your data. Before you've even switched off your alarm, a whole host of organisations have been alerted to when you woke up, where you slept, and with whom. As you check the weather, scroll through your 'suggested friends' on Facebook, you continually compromise your privacy. Without your permission, or even your awareness, tech companies are harvesting your information, your location, your likes, your habits, and sharing it amongst themselves. They're not just selling your data. They're selling the power to influence you. Even when you've explicitly asked them not to. And it's not just you. It's all your contacts too. Digital technology is stealing our personal data and with it our power to make free choices. To reclaim that power and democracy, we must protect our privacy. What can we do? So much is at stake. Our phones, our TVs, even our washing machines are spies in our own homes. We need new regulation. We need to pressure policy-makers for red lines on the data economy. And we need to stop sharing and to adopt privacy-friendly alternatives to Google, Facebook and other online platforms. Short, terrifying, practical: Privacy is Power highlights the implications of our laid-back attitude to data and sets out how we can take back control. If you liked The Age of Surveillance Capitalism, you'll love Privacy is Power because it provides a philosophical perspective on the politics of privacy, and it offers a very practical outlook, both for policymakers and ordinary citizens.

Ray Hartley reveals how Cyril Ramaphosa pulled off one of the greatest political comebacks of modern times, and what lies in store for the new president as he embarks on a hefty clean-up operation of a country in shambles.
Ray Hartley's bestselling 2017 biography, Ramaphosa: The Man Who Would Be King, offered a cogent analysis of how the former nearly-man of South African politics handled the key challenges he faced in the unions, in business and in politics. In this updated edition, Hartley questions whether the former'man in the middle' can lead from the front, now that he has publicly denounced the besmirched Zuma and his corrupted ANC and established himself as a worthy recipient of the country's top job.

So begins a new era in South African politics.

Nearly two decades after he was anointed by Nelson Mandela as his successor, Cyril Ramaphosa has at last taken office as the president of South Africa. But the country Ramaphosa has inherited is very different from the rainbow nation that Mandela led in the 1990s.
The South Africa of 2018 is divided and caught in a web of state capture, corruption, poverty and despair. The Zuma years have left the country and its institutions battered and bruised.
Can Ramaphosa pull South Africa out of the quagmire and restore it to its former glory, as so many people desperately hope? Is his turn at the presidency really the beginning of a new dawn.
Ralph Mathekga answers these questions, and more, in this riveting book.
