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.

Die feite spreek vanself: Die Afrikaner is in 'n volskaalse bestaanskrisis. Die redes hiervoor is al dikwels in die verlede ondersoek, maar nog nooit só brutaal eerlik, só trompop en só daadwerklik gekonfronteer as in Die pad na selfbestuur: Anderkant die mislukking van staatsbestuur nie.

Dié boek ondersoek die krisis waarin die Afrikanergemeenskap homself bevind sowel as voorstelle vir oplossings om steeds vry, veilig en voorspoedig in hierdie land te kan bly woon. Dit bied 'n padkaart na die enigste beskikbare én werkbare oplossing - groter selfbestuur - met planne om uitvoering daaraan te gee.

Die hede gaan nie weggaan nie, die verlede gaan nie terugkom nie, en die toekoms gaan nie vanself gebeur nie. Daarom is oorspronklike, vindingryke en ingrypende planne wat met skeppende vernuwing uitgevoer word nou nodig. Van hierdie planne vind neerslag in Flip Buys se toekomsblik op Suid-Afrika in 2030 wanneer konsentrasiegebiede van Afrikaners 'n sleutelrol in bevredigende dienslewering, woon- en werkplekke gaan speel.

“Hierdie merkwaardige boek stippel 'n roetekaart uit op die pad van groeiende selfbestuur, 'n toekomsvisie en 'n pad van hoop. Ryk aan internasionale en nasionale voorbeelde van selfbestuur wat die skrywer, soos altyd, op ewewigtige, beskeie, maar kristalhelder wyse oordra. Dié boek kom in 'n tyd waarin wit mense (maar by name Afrikaners) onder geweldige druk verkeer. Dit verdien derhalwe nie net 'n wye leserskring nie, maar doelgerigte aansporing.” Prof. Flip Smit, demograaf

“Afrikaners stoei oor hul toekoms in Suid-Afrika. Die vyandige staat wat verswak laat hulle magteloos voel. Selfbestuur plaas die toekoms in die hande van die gemeenskap. Dit is 'n bevredigende gedagte. Hierdie boek gee diepte aan die idee van selfbestuur en gaan energie losmaak. Dit is 'n tydige boek wat rigting gee.” Dr. Dirk Hermann, uitvoerende hoof: Solidariteit

“Buys se verfrissende boodskap van hoop dui 'n duidelike pad aan wat Afrikaners en hul instellings deur selfbestuur moet volg om 'n beter toekoms te skep. Terwyl AfriForum en ander instellings van die Solidariteit Beweging sal voortgaan om te veg teen agteruitgang en onreg, bied Buys 'n goeie oorsig en vooruitskouing van die Beweging se uiters belangrike boukomponent. Ek het hoop, want ons gaan self die toekoms skep wat ons vir onsself én ons nageslag wil hê.” Kallie Kriel, uitvoerende hoof: AfriForum

“Flip Buys se boek verteenwoordig 'n helder ligbaken in die hedendaagse politieke gesprek. Buys beïndruk nie net met 'n diepgaande historiese kennis nie, maar ook met 'n goed geskryfde, verbeeldingryke en hoopgewende antwoord op die uitdagings van ons tyd. Hierdie boek is 'n absolute móét vir alle nugterdenkende Afrikaners.” Prof. Danie Goosen, akademiese hoof: Akademia

Flip Buys is die voorsitter van die Solidariteit Beweging, 'n sambreelorganisasie wat uit 18 afsonderlike entiteite (waaronder Solidariteit, AfriForum, die FAK en Helpende Hand) bestaan en tans meer as 500 000 gesinne verteenwoordig

A secret anguish for some, a proud responsibility for others, black tax draws heated and wide-ranging reactions. While the debate rages, these payments and other forms of support to family members remain a daily reality for many black South Africans. Black tax has its historical roots in the inequalities created by apartheid and the loss of land. Consequently, thousands of black South Africans still live in poverty today. Some believe black tax is an undeniable part of black culture and part of the philosophy of ubuntu. Others feel they should not have to take over what is essentially a government responsibility and should be allowed to focus on building their own wealth.

The privately-operated, nightly labour trains running between Booysens and Ressano Garcia left deep scars in the urban and rural cultures of black communities whether in the form of popular songs, such as Stimela and Shosholoza, or in a belief in nocturnal witches' trains that captured and conveyed zombie workers to the region's most unpopular places of employment. By tracing the up- and down- rail journeys undertaken by black migrants over half a century it is possible to reconstruct how racial thinking, expressed logistically, reflected the evolving systems of segregation and apartheid. Mozambican migrant labour formed an integral part of a largely hidden, parallel universe that created the wealth of 20th century South Africa and some of the deepest roots of an on-going tragedy lie, to this very day, besides the rails of the Eastern Main Line

What was the fate of the first generations of black women born after abolition in America? Struggle: to create autonomous and beautiful lives, to escape new forms of servitude, and to live as if they really were free. This book recreates the radical imagination and wayward practices of these young women by describing the world through their eyes. Recreating their fragmentary life stories using a combination of archival research and virtuosic literary imagination, a very different vision of the twentieth century emerges, one that offers an intimate chronicle of black radicalism. Here is an aesthetical and riotous history - a revolution in tastes and mores that set the stage for the Jazz Age and the social upheavals.

We are living in a modern world where falsehood regularly seems to overwhelm truth. The ability of billions of people to publish has created a vast amount of unreliable and false news which now competes with and sometimes drowns more established forms of journalism. So where can we look for reliable, verifiable sources of news and information? What does all this mean for democracy? And what will the future hold? Reflecting on his twenty years as editor of the Guardian at a time of unprecedented digital disruption; and his experience of breaking some of the most significant news stories of our time, Alan Rusbridger answers these questions and offers a stirring defence of why quality journalism matters now more than ever.

What does it take to deceive those closest to you? How do you lead a double life and not lose yourself? Is there ever a point of return? Jonathan Ancer explores these questions in the tales of SA's spies: from the navy super spy on the Russian pay roll to the party girl who fell in love with Cuba and the idealistic students used and abused in apartheid's intelligence war. Ancer gets under the skin of what it takes to betray those closest to you - and what it is means to be betrayed.

In October 2015, the Gupta brothers offered Mcebisi Jonas the position of minister of finance in exchange for R600 million. Then deputy minister of finance, Jonas turned down the bribe and a period of deep introspection followed for him. How did we reach this point, and what did the future hold for South Africa's democracy and the economy?
In After Dawn, Mcebisi Jonas analyses the crisis at the heart of our current system, which places politics at the centre of policymaking and implementation at the expense of growth. In this important and authoritative book, Jonas first unpacks and analyses the current badlands of the South African economic and political landscape. In the second half, Jonas proposes a series of workable and practical solutions for transitioning South Africa into a growing, job-creating country including:

Putting inclusive growth at the centre of economic policy;
rapidly expanding new technological capacities and knowledge to transition to a twenty-first-century economy;
expanding human capabilities at scale;
path-changing trade-offs to catalyse the next phase of South Africa's development;
nurturing a corruption-free, high-performance state built on meritocracy and innovation; and
changing the nature of politics.
Time is of the essence and the window of opportunity is narrowing for all South Africans to work together towards the South Africa we all imagined was possible in 1994.

Warning. Smoking kills. It also corrupts law-enforcement officials and eviscerates state institutions. It devours politicians, professionals, businesspeople and ordinary workers in the chase for big bucks and the battle for a slice of an ever-shrinking cigarette market.

Join one of South Africa's former tax sleuths Johann van Loggerenberg in a wild ride through the double-dealing world of tobacco's colourful characters and ruthless corporates. Meet the femme fatales, mavericks, mercenaries and grandmasters, and learn how the crime-busting unit led by Van Loggerenberg at SARS and its 'Project Honey Badger' became a victim of a war between industry players and a high-stakes political game driven by state capture.

This is the tale of a few good men and women who dared to try to hold to account a billion-dollar international industry rife with private spy networks, tax evasion, collusion and corruption - ultimately at great cost to themselves and South Africa.

About 50km outside of Cape Town lies the beautiful town of Stellenbosch, nestled against vineyards and blue mountains that stretch to the sky. Here reside some of South Africa's wealthiest individuals: all male, all Afrikaans - and all stinking rich. Johann Rupert, Jannie Mouton, Markus Jooste and Christo Weise, to name a few.

Julius Malema refers to them scathingly as 'The Stellenbosch Mafia', the very worst example of white monopoly capital. But who really are these mega-wealthy individuals, and what influence do they exert not only on Stellenbosch but more broadly on South African society?

Author Pieter du Toit begins by exploring the roots of Stellenbosch, one of the wealthiest towns in South Africa and arguably the cradle of Afrikanerdom. This is the birthplace of apartheid leaders, intellectuals, newspaper empires and more. He then closely examines this 'club' of billionaires. Who are they and, crucially, how are they connected? What network of boardroom membership, alliances and family connections exist?

Who are the 'old guard' and who are the 'inkommers', and what about the youngsters desperate to make their mark? He looks at the collapse of Steinhoff: what went wrong, and whether there are other companies at risk of a similar fate. He examines the control these men have over cultural life, including pulling the strings in South Africa rugby.

In White Boy Running, Christopher Hope explored how it felt and looked to grow up in a country gripped by an 'absurd, racist insanity'. On a road trip thirty years later, Hope goes in search of today's South Africa; post the evils of apartheid, but also post the dashed hopes and dreams of Mandela, of a future when race and colour would not count. He finds a country still in the grip of a ruling party intent only on caring for itself, to the exclusion of all others; a country where racial divides are deeper than ever. As the old imperial idols of Cecil Rhodes and Paul Kruger are literally pulled from their pedestals in a mass yearning to destroy the past, Hope ponders the question: what next? Framed as a travelogue, this is a darkly comic, powerful and moving portrait of South Africa - an elegy to a living nation, which is still mad and absurd.

In spite of Cyril Ramaphosa's 'new dawn', there are powerful forces in the ruling party that risk losing everything if corruption and state capture finally do come to an end. At the centre of the old guard's fightback efforts is Ace Magashule, a man viewed by some as South Africa's most dangerous politician.
In this explosive book, investigative journalist Pieter-Louis Myburgh ventures deeper than ever before into Magashule's murky dealings, from his time as a struggle activist in the 1980s to his powerful rule as premier of the Free State province for nearly a decade, and his rise to one of the ANC's most influential positions. Sifting through heaps of records, documents and exclusive source interviews, Myburgh explores Magashule's relationship with the notorious Gupta family and other tender moguls; investigates government projects costing billions that enriched his friends and family but failed the poor; reveals how he was about to be arrested by the Scorpions before their disbandment in the late 2000s; and exposes the methods used to keep him in power in the Free State and to secure him the post of ANC secretary-general.

Most tellingly, Myburgh pieces together a pack of leaked emails and documents to reveal shocking new details on a massive Free State government contract and Magashule's dealings with a businessman who was gunned down in Sandton in 2017. These files seem to lay bare the methods of a man who usually operated without leaving a trace.

Gangster State is an unflinching examination of the ANC's top leadership in the post-Jacob Zuma era, one that should lead readers to a disconcerting conclusion: When it comes to the forces of capture, South Africa is still far from safe.

A New York Times bestseller.
Winner of the Financial Times/McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award.

'Chilling . . . Reads like a West Coast version of All the President's Men.' New York Times Book Review

The full inside story of the breathtaking rise and shocking collapse of Theranos, the multibillion-dollar biotech startup, by the prize-winning journalist who first broke the story and pursued it to the end, despite pressure from its charismatic CEO and threats by her lawyers.

In 2014, Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes was widely seen as the female Steve Jobs: a brilliant Stanford dropout whose startup 'unicorn' promised to revolutionize the medical industry with a machine that would make blood testing significantly faster and easier. Backed by investors such as Larry Ellison and Tim Draper, Theranos sold shares in a fundraising round that valued the company at more than $9 billion, putting Holmes's worth at an estimated $4.7 billion. There was just one problem: The technology didn't work.

In Bad Blood, John Carreyrou tells the riveting story of the biggest corporate fraud since Enron, a tale of ambition and hubris set amid the bold promises of Silicon Valley.

Now to be adapted into a film, with Jennifer Lawrence to star.
