WINNER OF THE SUNDAY TIMES ALAN PATON AWARD
In the spring of 1999, in the beautiful and seemingly tranquil hills of the KwaZulu-Natal midlands, a young white farmer is shot dead on the dirt road running from his father's farmhouse to his irrigation fields. The murder is the work of assassins rather than robbers.

Journalist Jonny Steinberg travels to the midlands to investigate. It is clear that the young white man is not the only one who will die and that the story of his and other deaths will illuminate a great deal about the early days of post-apartheid South Africa.

Midlands is a triumph of literary investigative journalism.

In August 1993, Fulbright scholar Amy Biehl was killed in Cape Town by a group of black teenagers incited by an upsurge in 'anti-white' sloganeering. She died just a few metres away from Sindiwe Magona's house. One of the boys held responsible for the killing was her neighbour's son. Mother to mother takes the form of an epistle to Amy Biehl's mother. Sindiwe Magona imagines how easily it might have been her own son caught up in the violence of that day. She writes about their lives in a colonised society that not only allowed, but also perpetuated violence against women and impoverished black South Africans. The result is not an apology for murder, but an exquisitely written exploration of the lives of ordinary people in the apartheid years.

Lihle Ngcobozi, herself the progeny of three generations of Manyano women, takes an original, fresh look at the meaning of the Manyano. Between male-dominated struggle narratives and Western feminist misreadings, this church-based women's organisation has become a mere footnote to history.

Here, the Manyano women speak for themselves, in an African feminist meditation rendered by one of their own.

On 16 August 2012, a contingent of the South African Police Service opened fire with R5 assault rifles on a group of striking miners on and around Wonderkop near the Marikana platinum mine in South Africa's North West province. By the time the dust settled, 34 miners were dead and 78 more were wounded. Footage of the massacre travelled around the globe, causing public outrage.

The news footage, however, captured only a dozen or so of the dead. A number of those who died were killed beyond the view of cameras at a nondescript collection of boulders known as Small Koppie, some 300 metres behind Wonderkop. Many of these men had been shot incold blood at close range.

In Murder at Small Koppie, renowned photojournalist Greg Marinovich explores the truth behind the Marikana massacre, looking specifically at the largely untold slaughter at Small Koppie. Drawing on his own meticulous investigations, eyewitness accounts and the findings of the Marikana Commission of Inquiry set up by President Jacob Zuma following the massacre, Marinovich accurately reconstructs that fateful day as well as the events leading up to the strike,and looks at the subsequent denials, obfuscation and buck-passing that characterised Lonmin's, the SAPS' and the government's response.

This is the definitive account of the Marikana massacre from the journalist whose award-winning investigation into the tragedy was called the most important piece of South African journalism post apartheid.

Nelson Mandela was called a terrorist, forced into hiding, captured, threatened with the death penalty and eventually thrown into jail for twenty-seven years, but nothing could stop him from fighting to liberate his country from the evil of apartheid. A hero in the struggle against a terrible regime, he never gave up. Even when he was a prisoner, he worked secretly with his comrades to undermine the oppressive apartheid government. This is the exciting true story of a young herd boy who was to grow up to become a lawyer, a freedom fighter, South Africa's first democratically elected president and the beloved grandfather of a nation. It is told here in words and pictures for the young and the young at heart: a story to read with enjoyment and remember with pride.

''There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountain tops of our desires.'

This collection of Mandela's writings and speeches was first published in this format in 1965. Overnight, No Easy Walk to Freedom became an indispensible guide to the political thought of a man who was to become one of the twentieth century's greatest statesmen. Eighteen years into our democracy, Mandela's silence on the core issues that face South Africa in this historical moment is greatly felt. No Easy Walk to Freedom offers us the opportunity to re-engage with Mandela's thinking on nationalisation, land redistribution and the role of the strike in political discourse.

With a new introduction by William Gumede and original foreword by Oliver Tambo.'

This book is a romance of truth; but behind it is a greater personal romance, and behind that again is the even more wonderful romance of South Africa.
- Jan Smuts
No Outspan begins with Deneys Reitz's return from the First World War, during which he commanded a Scottish regiment. One might think that Reitz would be happy to settle for a quiet life after fighting through two terrible wars, but nothing could be further from the truth. Immediately on his return by ship to Table Bay Harbour, he agreed to stand as a Member of Parliament in the forthcoming election.
The South African Party under Botha and Smuts won the election, and Deneys Reitz became a Cabinet Minister. This enabled him to lead a life of great adventure when not constrained by Parliament or the drudgery of Pretorian office duties.
No Outspan is a fascinating account of life in South Africa from the early 1920s until the early 1940s, when the author was Deputy Prime Minister of South Africa. Deneys Reitz played an important role in the creation of the Kruger National Park and was appointed as one of the founding trustees despite being an opposition Member of Parliament at the time. His involvement with wild life and various game reserves he helped establish while in office is a theme that runs throughout the book.
An intensely interesting episode in the book is the fall of Hertzog as leader of a coalition government over the issue of South Africa's stand in the Second World War. As a Cabinet Minister in the coalition government, Deneys Reitz had a front row seat in all of this - and he tells the story as no one else could.
Jan Smuts said after Reitz's death in 1944: 'His loss is a national one and will be mourned all over this country which he knew and loved as no other'.

This unique collection of speeches, writings and rare interviews, with a foreword by Nelson Mandela, gives a coherent and comprehensive view of the ANC's development, from its origins as a protest movement in the stormy 1950s, through its banning and subsequent reconstitution in exile, into the organisation that it is today. Twenty years on from the first truly democratic elections, South Africans find themselves once again in a period of flux. In Oliver Tambo Speaks, one of the principal architects of the 'new' South Africa expresses his thoughts on what the ANC was, what it became in order to liberate South Africa from oppression and what it should evolve into in order to provide a better life for all. Aside from being a vital historical document, Oliver Tambo Speaks presents us with fresh perspectives on our current situation from one of the greatest political thinkers that South Africa has produced.
