When Johan Booysen hears that the new Provincial Police Chief takes backhanders from a Durban businessman, he decides to give her the benefit of the doubt. But the evidence becomes impossible to ignore and he soon gets dragged down the corridors of power and politics into a web of intrigue, deceit and betrayal that, at times, he has trouble making sense of. Only when he is arrested, handcuffed and tossed into a cell does Booysen realise just how ruthless those opposed to him are - an opposition he comes to call the 'cabal' - and whom he believes have more blood on their hands than the so-called Cato Manor Death Squad with which he is closely associated.
Blood on their Hands traces Johan Booysen's life and career - from patrolling the streets of Amanzimtoti in the 1970s to his rise in 2010 to major general and head of KZN's Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation unit, the Hawks. But his tenure is short-lived. When Booysen decides to take on those so determined to be rid of him, each legal battle he wins is met by hostility and further efforts to shut him out of the of the criminal justice system. But capitulating is not in his DNA...

Two world renowned revolutionary icons, Nelson Mandela and Fidel Castro, meet for the first time in Cuba 1991. This book is the collection of their speeches from that auspicious day. Speaking at a rally, Mandela credits Cuba's military support and involvement in Angola, and comments on Cuba's assistance to debilitate the US-backed South African army, which resulted in the acceleration in the fight to bring down the apartheid government. Castro acknowledges the contribution of South Africans to the worldwide fight for justice. Mandela and Castro regarded each other as mentors -- and the world regards them as icons. Historians, researchers and activists will be keenly interested in this book.

The Thabo Mbeki I Know is a collection that celebrates one of South Africa's most exceptional thought leaders. The contributors include those who first got to know Thabo Mbeki as a young man, in South Africa and in exile, and those who encountered him as a statesman and worked alongside him as an African leader.
In The Thabo Mbeki I Know, these friends, comrades, statesmen, politicians and business associates provide insights that challenge the prevailing academic narrative and present fresh perspectives on the former president's time in office and on his legacy - a vital undertaking as we approach a decade since an embattled Thabo Mbeki left office.
Edited by Sifiso Mxolisi Ndlovu and Miranda Strydom, The Thabo Mbeki I Know provides readers with an opportunity to reassess Thabo Mbeki's contribution to post-apartheid South Africa, as both deputy president and president; to the African continent and diaspora, as a highly respected state leader; and to the international community as a whole.

A Manifesto for Social Change is the third of a three-volume series that started seven years ago investigating the causes of our country's - and the continent's - development obstacles.
Architects of Poverty: Why African Capitalism Needs Changing (2009) set out to explain what role African elites played in creating and promoting their fellow Africans' misery.
Advocates for Change: How to Overcome Africa's Challenges (2011) set out to show that there were short-term to medium-term solutions to many of Africa's and South Africa's problems, from agriculture to healthcare, if only the powers that be would take note.
And now, more than 20 years after the advent of democracy, we have A Manifesto for Social Change, the conclusion in the 'trilogy'.

Everyone has wonderful memories of the 2010 Fifa World Cup

In June 2010, the richest World Cup ever kicked off as delirious South African fans gathered in a rare act of national unity to make the world's biggest sporting event a success. The magnificent new stadiums were packed and the streets were safe. It all went off like clockwork.

But behind this impressive achievement lay billions in wasted public money, crooked companies rigging construction tenders and the fixing of a string of matches involving the national team. Tragically, one of those who blew the whistle would pay with his life.

Then, in May 2015, the arrest of Fifa executives revealed that the tournament's very foundations were rotten. Evidence emerged that South Africa had encouraged Fifa to pay money to a corrupt member of its executive to secure three votes in favour of its hosting the tournament.

As Sepp Blatter's Fifa edifice crumbled, a web of transactions, from New York to Trinidad and Tobago and the Cayman Islands, showed how money was diverted to ensure that South Africa's bid to host the tournament succeeded.

In The Big Fix, Ray Hartley reveals the truth about the rotten foundation on which an epic national achievement was built, exposing the people who used the event to amass wealth and power. This is the realstory of the 2010 World Cup.

Allister Sparks joined his first newspaper at age 17 and was pitched headlong into the vortex of South Africa's stormy politics. The Sword And The Pen is the story of how as a journalist he observed, chronicled and participated in his country's unfolding drama for more than 66 years, covering events from the premiership of DF Malan to the presidency of Jacob Zuma, witnessing at close range the rise and fall of apartheid and the rise and crisis of the new South Africa.
In trenchant prose, Sparks has written a remarkable account of both a life lived to its full as well as the surrounding narrative of South Africa from the birth of apartheid, the rise of political opposition, the dawn of democracy, right through to the crisis we are experiencing today.

The armed struggle waged by the ANC's military wing, Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK), was the longest sustained insurgency in South African history. This book offers the first full account of the rebellion in its entirety, from its early days in the 1950s to the inauguration of Nelson Mandela asSouth African president in 1994.

Vast in scope, this story traverses every corner of South Africa and extends throughout southern Africa, where MK's largest campaigns and heaviest engagements occurred, as well as to the solidarity networks that the rebellion mobilised around the world.

Drawing principally from previously unpublished writings and testimonies by the men and women who fought the armed struggle, this book recreates the drama, heroism and tragedy of their experiences. It tells the story of leaders like Nelson Mandela, Oliver Tambo, Joe Slovo and Chris Hani, whose reputations were forged in the crucible of the armed struggle, but it is also a tale of martyrs such as Looksmart Ngudle, Ashley Kriel and Phila Ndwandwe, as well as of MK cadres such as Leonard Nkosi and Glory Sedibe, who would ultimately turn against the ANC and collaborate with the state in hunting down their former comrades.

Written in a fresh, immediate style, Umkhonto we Sizwe is an honest account of the armed struggle and a fascinating chronicle of events that changed South African history.

Africa is falling. Africa is succeeding. Africa is betraying its citizens. Africa is a place of starvation, corruption, disease. African economies are soaring faster than any on earth. Africa is squandering its bountiful resources. Africa is a roadmap for global development. Africa is turbulent. Africa is stabilising. Africa is doomed. Africa is the future.
All of these pronouncements prove equally true and false, as South African journalists Richard Poplak and Kevin Bloom discover on their 9-year roadtrip through the paradoxical continent they call home. From pillaged mines in Zimbabwe to the creation of an economic marketplace in Ethiopia; from Namibia's middle class to the technological challenges facing Nollywood in the 21st Century; from China's investment in Botswana to the rush for resources in the Congo; and from the birth of Africa's newest country, South Sudan, to the worsening conflict in CAR, here are eight adventures on the trail of a new Africa.

Part detective story, part report from this economic frontier, Continental Shift follows the money as it flows through Chinese coffers to international conglomerates, to heads of state, to ordinary African citizens, all of whom are intent on defining a metamorphosing continent.

These essays by Govan Mbeki were written, circulated and preserved in Robben Island prison. They were never intended for publication but to be read by other prisoners, with the aim to educate politically.
They are remarkable documents that provided activists with a distillation of practical lessons about political organisation in the most testing conditions. They include extended historical, political and economic analyses that are vital to any assessment of the intellectual history of the South African left. And they are pages in a truly international literature - a record throughout the ages of the creativity and indomitability of people imprisoned for their beliefs.
Learning From Robben Island is an extraordinary selection of Mbeki's essays, written mostly between the late 1970's and mid 1980's.
"[It] bears testimony to the endurance of the human spirit . . ." - Philip Steenkamp, The International Journal of African Historical Studies
"Learning From Robben Island gives better insight into life on Robben Island, showing that the struggle continued even within prison boundaries." - Lakela Kaunda

When a group of young political activists met in 1944 to launch the African National Congress Youth League, it included the nucleus of a remarkable generation of leaders who forged the struggle for freedom and equality in South Africa for the next half century: Nelson Mandela, Oliver Tambo, Walter Sisulu, Ellen Kuzwayo and A. P. Mda. It was Anton Lembede, however whom they chose as their first president. Lembede, who had just begun practicing law in Johannesburg, was known for his sharp intellect, fiery personality, and unwavering commitment to the struggle at hand. The son of farm laborers from the district of Georgedale, Natal, Lembede had worked tirelessly to put himself through school and college, and then to qualify for the Bachelor of Laws degree. When he began law practice in 1943, he had also earned the respect of his fellows, not only for his intellectual achievements (which were many), but also for his dedication to the cause of freedom in South Africa. "I am," he explained, "Africa's own child." His untimely death in 1947 at the age of 33 sent a wave of grief through the Congress Youth, who had looked to him for moral as well as political leadership. With the publication of Freedom In Our Lifetime, we acknowledge Lembede's early contribution to the freedom movement, in particular his passionate and eloquent articulation of the African-centered philosophy he called "Africanism."

As scandals, corruption and violent protests continue to poison South Africa, many have given up hope for the future. The problems seem insurmountable. But, argues Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela, if only we can honestly confront our past, we can find ways of forging a new, different future. This collection of her writing hones in on some of the main problems that have plagued South Africa over the past ten years: bigotry, poor leadership - especially under the Zuma government - race-based anger and resentment, violence. She convincingly argues that honesty and courage in facing the wrongs of the past can offer possible solutions and restore our vision for the future. This book is a thoughtful analysis of how the past continues to affect the present and what we can do about it. Insightful and inspirational.

Have South Africans changed in any significant way since 1994? Or are black and white simply repeating old patterns? American-born journalist Donna Bryson found answers to these questions on the University of the Free State campus in Bloemfontein. In 2008 this sleepy city was thrust into the international spotlight by a racist video made by students from Reitz residence. Bryson went to investigate. She offers a story of hope in a country desperate for good news.

Remember when South Africa had load shedding in 2008? Remember the rush on generators and property in Perth? An email from Alan Knott-Craig reminding South Africans of the upsides to living in South Africa went viral and elicited responses from thousands of South Africans. The resulting book - Don't Panic! - captured a moment in SA history.
Fast forward to 2014, and we've forgotten load shedding (mostly), we hosted the Soccer World Cup, we survived the global recession, but now the panic feeling is settling in again. The Rand is crashing, politics dominate headlines, service delivery protests are everywhere - should we be panicking now?
Read the advice of Alan Knott-Craig, Alec Hogg, Max du Preez, SiyaMnyanda, Brand Pretorius and a host of others (well-known people, ordinary South Africans and international citizens drawn to South Africa) who tell us: Really, Don't Panic!
