In this book, based on published sources, both primary and secondary, the available information on Cape slavery during the eighteenth century is placed in the wider context of Dutch colonial society during this period. The result, which is a sequel to Early slavery at the Cape of Good Hope by the same author, is probably the fullest and most detailed survey of the subject to date.

'Slavery was to have a very long afterlife in South Africa, and subtly but profoundly to affect the further development of the country. The investigation of slavery in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries is therefore by no means an irrelevant exercise.'

This book brings to life the untold story behind the release of Nelson Mandela, as revealed in previously top-secret records. Kobie Coetsee, Minister of Justice at the time, kept an archive on 'Prisoner 913', on which the authors - a historian and a journalist - draw to retell the story. This is history as it actually happened, as opposed to how it has been portrayed up to now, even in writings by Mandela himself. Prisoner 913 sets right the historical record.

Land reform and the possibility of expropriation without compensation are among the most hotly debated topics in South Africa today, met with trepidation and fervour in equal measure. But these broader issues tend to obscure a more immediate reality: a severe housing crisis and a sharp increase in urban land occupations.
In Promised Land, Karl Kemp travels the country documenting the fallout of failing land reform, from the under-siege Philippi Horticultural Area deep in the heart of Cape Town's ganglands to the burning mango groves of Tzaneen, from Johannesburg's lawless Deep South to rural KwaZulu-Natal, where chiefs own vast tracts of land on behalf of their subjects. He visits farming communities beset by violent crime, and provides gripping, on-the-ground reporting of recent land invasions, with perspectives from all sides, including land activists, property owners and government officials. Kemp also looks at burning issues surrounding the land debate in South Africa - corruption, farm murders, illegal foreign labour, mechanisation and eviction - and reveals the views of those affected.

Touching on the history of land conflict and conquest in each area, as well as detailing the current situation on the ground, Promised Land provides startling insights into the story of land conflict in South Africa.

In 1914 het 'n groep Afrikaners in verset teen die Unieregering gekom, aangevuur deur 'Siener' van Rensburg se visioene wat vertel het van die ondergang van die Britse ryk. Toe Louis Botha net ná die aanvang van die Eerste Wêreldoorlog aankondig dat die Unie Duits-Suidwes-Afrika sou inval, was die vet in die vuur en het honderde opstandige manne die wapen opgeneem. Volgens die joernalis L.E. Neame was dit 'one of the most curious and dramatic incidents in the Great War'.

South Africa faces enormous challenges brought about by the legacy of its horrible past and the actions of its present. In the twenty years since it joined the community of democratic nations it has come to believe that the ailments of its soul will be solved by state bureaucratic interventions.

While at a material level this may be true, at the core of its failure to successfully confront its demons is a missing, moral and philosophical foundation to the future it wants to build. Desperate to construct a new, positive and uplifting narrative of itself, the country has failed at the task of constructing a society and instead sought to maintain a fragile truce between bitterly competing interests.

It is time for a fresh, unencumbered analysis of why we are the people we have become and the future our present state is building. Uncomfortable and littered with vulnerabilities and problems, this is a task we can no longer delay. It is the only way we shall lay a solid foundation to all that we wish our collective resources should do to make us a prosperous nation.

Van al die gebeure in die Kaapkolonie gedurende die Tweede Vryheidsoorlog het die teregstelling van Hans Lötter, asook dié van kmdt. Gideon Scheepers, die meeste emosie onder Afrikaners ontketen. Lötter en sy mederebelle in die Kolonie het die verbeelding van die plaaslike bevolking aangegryp en die Britte maande lank hoofbrekens besorg. Sy gevangeneming, verhoor en teregstelling deur 'n Britse vuurpeloton op Middelburg, Kaap, het groot woede en verontwaardiging veroorsaak en hom verewig as Boeremartelaar in die Afrikaner-volksoorleweringe. Nou word sy boeiende verhaal vir die eerste keer volledig vertel.

Adam Habib, the most prominent and outspoken university official through the recent student protests, takes a characteristically frank view of the past three years on South Africa's campuses in this new book. Habib charts the progress of the student protests that erupted on Wits University campus in late 2015 and raged for the better part of three years, drawing on his own intimate involvement and negotiation with the students, and also records university management and government responses to the events. He critically examines the student movement and individual student leaders who emerged under the banners #feesmustfall and #Rhodesmustfall, and debates how to achieve truly progressive social change in South Africa, on our campuses and off.

This book is both an attempt at a historical account and a thoughtful reflection on the issues the protests kicked up, from the perspective not only of a high-ranking member of university management, but also Habib as political scientist with a background as an activist during the struggle against apartheid. Habib moves between reflecting on the events of the last three years on university campuses, and reimagining the future of South African higher education.

Dit was die Afrikaner se bitterste uur toe die bittereinders van die Anglo-Boereoorlog mekaar twaalf jaar later die stryd aansê: Aan die een kant die regeringsmagte (Kakies) van premier Louis Botha en sy minister van verdediging, Jan Smuts -- aan die ander kant die rebelliekommando's (Boere) van kommandant-generaals Christiaan de Wet en Christiaan Beyers.

Na 'n paar maande was alles verby. Die einde was bitterder as in 1902. De la Rey en Beyers was dood. De Wet, Kemp, Conroy, Wessels en duisende ander helde uit die Anglo-Boereoorlog was in die tronk. Jopie Fourie is op 'n Sondagoggend, net voor Kersfees, gefussileer. Manie Maritz het in selfopgelegde ballingskap die wêreld vol geswerf.
Hoe gebeur so 'n tragedie? Wie is die skuldiges? Hoe kyk mens 100 jaar later daarna?

Responding To The Challenges Of Inclusive Education In Southern Africa presents readers with cultural-historical contexts and the voices that emerge from them, together with insights into challenges and opportunities associated with inclusive education in southern African contexts.
Since the publication in 2007 of the first edition of this seminal work, the broader concept of inclusive education has become well-established in many African countries. The editors believe it is time to look carefully at the successes and concerns associated with inclusive education in southern Africa (South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Malawi, and Lesotho) and to highlight strategies that have been shown to increase the likelihood of success.

This new edition presents readers with cultural-historical contexts and the voices that emerge from them, together with insights into challenges and opportunities associated with inclusive education in southern African contexts. The first section of the book describes a number of such contexts and reviews progress to date. The second section focuses on strategies to respond to, circumvent or reframe the challenges that have been identified. These include changing the discourses on diverse learning needs, facilitating institutional change, creating new collaborative partnerships, involving parents, moving towards teacher education for inclusion, thinking differently about education support, understanding how the curriculum can contribute to exclusion and developing inclusive pedagogy within the southern African context. The discussion of these strategies links evidence from international and local research with the unique characteristics of particular contexts and illustrates how ideas can be put into practice in creative ways.

On 21 March 1960, Robert Mangaliso Sobukwe led a mass defiance of South Africa's pass laws. He urged blacks to go to the nearest police station and demand arrest. Police opened fire on a peaceful crowd in the township of Sharpeville and killed 69 people. The protest changed the course of South Africa's history. Afrikaner rule stiffened and black resistance went underground.

Sobukwe, leader of the Pan-Africanist Congress, was jailed for three years for incitement. At the end of his sentence the government, fearful of his power, rushed the so-called 'Sobukwe Clause' through Parliament, to keep him in prison without a trial. For the next six years, Sobukwe was kept in solitary confinement on Robben Island. On his release, Sobukwe was banished to the town of Kimberley with very severe restrictions on his freedom. He died there nine years later in February 1978. This book is the story of this South African hero - the lonely prisoner on Robben Island. It is also the story of the friendship between Robert Sobukwe and Benjamin Pogrund, whose joint experiences and debates chart the course of a tyrannous regime and the growth of black resistance.

Benjamin Pogrund, former Editor of the Rand Daily Mail in Johannesburg, relocated to Britain after the newspaper closed down. He specialised in world news and worked in the foreign departments of such newspapers as the Independent in London. He appeared frequently on television and radio as a commentator during the final struggled of democracy in South Africa. Since 1997, he has lived in Israel. He writes about the Middle East and South Africa for publications including Ha'aretz, and The Guardian.

The policy of scorched earth followed by the British forces during the Anglo-Boer War of 1899-1902, as well as the concentration camps in which the Boer women and children were placed, led to bitter memories and trauma that haunted Afrikaners and other inhabitants of South Africa alike for many years. In this newly revised edition a group of eminent historians take a fresh and sober look, with the perspective brought about by a hundred years, at this most controversial aspect of the war.
