In 1825 seasonal migration to the region by white farmers was officially allowed, which soon developed into permanent settlement; in 1838 a Trekker party acquired the area around the modern Winburg from its original black inhabitants, in 1846 a British Resident settled at Bloemfontein, and two years later British sovereignty was proclaimed over the area. Early white travellers in the Transgariep is a survey of this phase of white contact with the region, and more especially of the written accounts left by the first white travellers there, and includes the text of eleven of the latter, in many cases translated from the Dutch, German or French.

As negentienjarige ryloper in Spanje beland Frank Westerman toevallig in die dorpie Banyoles, waar 'n opgestopte “Kalahari-Boesman”, slegs bekend as El Negro, uitgestal word. Sy indrukke bly hom by - en wanneer hy dekades later weer van El Negro lees, dié keer in 'n Franse koerant, is dit die begin van 'n ondersoeksreis wat belangrike vrae oor rasopvattings en die Westerse beskawing na vore bring. Wie was hierdie naamlose man? Wat sê sy opgestopte “museumteenwoordigheid” oor Europese denke oor slawerny, rassisme en kolonialisme - en bied hy slegs 'n spieël op 'n vergange tyd, of ook op die hede?

OOR DIE OUTEUR
Frank Westerman (gebore 1964) was aanvanklik 'n buitelandse korrespondent vir die Nederlandse de Volkskrant en NRC Handelsblad voordat hy sy deurbraak as skrywer gemaak het. El negro en ik is in 2004 met die Vlaamse Gouden Uil Literatuurprijs bekroon terwyl Ararat (2007) genomineer is vir die eerste Ryszard Kapuscinski-prys, Pole se toptoekenning vir literêre verslaggewing. Met meer as veertig vertaalde titels in sestien tale, kan Westerman met reg as een van Nederland se suksesvolste outeurs in die buiteland beskou word.

Cecil John Rhodes once said he had only met two creators in South Africa: himself and James Douglas Logan, the Scottish-born founder of Matjiesfontein. Empire, War & Cricket in South Africa explores in detail how Matjiesfontein was created and how Logan developed this little Karoo town into a renowned health resort, attracting the rich and famous - including the likes of South African novelist Olive Schreiner and England cricketer George Lohmann. But above all, this is the untold story of how James Logan was instrumental in developing the game of cricket in South Africa at a time when the country was heading towards war with the British Empire.

Logan immigrated to South Africa in 1877 at the age of 19 and almost immediately began amassing a fortune through business, politics and his high-profile association with that most favoured of imperial pastimes. In Empire, War & Cricket in South Africa, readers will learn how one of the first international cricket matches between South Africa and England took place at Matjiesfontein; explore the controversial 1901 South African cricket tour to England in the midst of the Anglo-Boer War; read the amazing story of how Logan once had the captain and manager of England's cricket team arrested as they boarded their ship home; and discover Logan's close relationship with Rhodes and how their 'shady dealings' brought down the Premier's first government.

Illustrated throughout with photographs and documents, Empire, War & Cricket in South Africa is a unique social and political history of the workings of the British Empire in South Africa during the late 19th century; a well-researched and fascinating biography of the man who gave us Matjiesfontein; and an entertaining and at times unbelievable story of cricket's origins in South Africa.

This book is a chronicle of the political and moral evolution of an Afrikaner within the context of the political evolution of South Africa and how he not only overcame the conservative and biased background of his youth but was transformed into a revolutionary spokesman for change and a recognition of the injustices of the past. It is also a realization that many of the consequences of the Apartheid system are still among us and have not been resolved. Many of these old ghosts which he encountered during his career have to be revisited and confronted.

The author takes the reader on a fascinating journey through the internal political struggles that eventually led to the first fully democratic election in South Africa in 1994 and beyond. His role as a Commissioner of the SA Human Rights Commission since retiring as a politician has exposed him to further realities of the legacy of Apartheid. It is the story of a courageous politician and a dedicated South African set on a course to make a positive contribution to the future of the country.

RW Johnson's bestselling book How Long Will South Africa Survive? was published at the height of the Zuma presidency. Since then, Cyril Ramaphosa has taken over as president and there have been some attempts to clean up government. But the brief period of 'Ramaphoria' is over and the threat to both the economy and the dream of a non-racial democracy is as real as ever. As national elections loom, Johnson examines the state of the nation with pinpoint accuracy. On the one hand state-owned institutions are near collapse, municipalities are defunct and civil strife is rampant. On the other, Ramaphosa and his team have come up with a plan to curb corruption and create growth and prosperity. But will it work?

Following in the wake of the recent re-publication of Njabulo Ndebele's eight critical essays, Re-discovery of the Ordinary, penned in the revolutionary period between 1984 and 1989, Fine Lines from the Box brings together a new collection of pieces that together constitute a map of the last three decades of political, economic and cultural struggle in South Africa. Individual pieces have been selected to show continuities in Ndebele's thinking: if he is scathing of the apartheid regime's 'fireworks display' in 'A Brilliant Trick', he can be just as scathing of the new order in profoundly reflective essays such as 'Mbeki: New opportunities for Leadership'. In the period after 1994, what comes across is profound insight into a society trying to remake itself. Ndebele's wisdom and wit in the concluding piece 'The Year of the Dog' are not easily forgotten. The author introduces each of the three groups of individual pieces with an introduction that describes the personal and other circumstances that attended his writing of the various pieces - an eloquent and evocative tracing of the trajectory of his thinking.

RW Johnson looks back with affection and humour on his life in Africa. From schooldays in Durban - fresh off the aeroplane from Merseyside - to later years as an academic, director of the Helen Suzman Foundation and formidable political commentator, he has produced an entertaining and occasionally eye-popping memoir brimming with history, anecdote and insight. Johnson charts his evolution from enthusiastic, left-leaning Africanist to political realist, relating the episodes that influenced his intellectual worldview, including time spent among the exiled liberation movements in London during the 1960s, a sojourn in newly independent Guinea and more recent forays into Zimbabwe. There are wonderful stories, some hilarious, others filled with pathos, about the multitude of characters.

After working closely with the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation in shaping and writing his memoir, author Hassen Ebrahim and Jacana Media are proud to publish this important record of a life that was spent in service to South Africa.
Writes Mac Maharaj in his foreword in the book: “Hassen Ebrahim is one of those many seldom heard of foot soldiers of the 1976 generation who joined the underground and was linked to the ANC structures operating from Botswana. He has been at the coalface of so many facets of South Africa's march to freedom. He was there during the times when involvement in the struggle against apartheid carried the risk of death; he was involved in our negotiated transition to democracy; he was the chief executive of the elected Constitutional Assembly which wrote and adopted our Constitution; thereafter and until 2007 he served in the Department of Justice.”

From Marabastad to Mogadishu: The Journey of an ANC Soldier chronicles an all-too familiar story of those unsung cadres from the struggle we've forgotten to honour for their sacrifices. Those foot soldiers do not feature in our collective memory, they do not find themselves or their stories recorded in the pages of history books, and they are not remembered for their selfless acts of bravery.

The bravery and sacrifice of the ordinary teenager who dropped out of school, the cadre who risked life and limb, and the freedom fighter who exiled himself or herself to countries far and wide must be given a chance to live on book pages, find expression on film reels and all other mediums of historic memory collection.

From Marabastad to Mogadishu: The Journey of an ANC Soldier signals the resolve by the author, his peers, Jacana Media and support organisations such as the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation to bring the ordinary cadre's story to the fore, to acknowledge his or her sacrifices, and to recognise their contribution to South Africa's democracy.

Geen Uitspan is 'n fassinerende weergawe van die lewe in Suid-Afrika vanaf die vroeë 1920's tot die vroeë 1940's, toe die skrywer adjunk-premier van Suid-Afrika was. Deneys Reitz het 'n belangrike rol gespeel in die totstandkoming van die Krugerwildtuin en is aangestel as een van die stigterslede, ondanks die feit dat hy destyds 'n parlementslid was. Sy betrokkenheid by die wilde lewe en verskillende wildreservate wat hy help vestig het terwyl hy in die amp was, is 'n tema wat deur die boek heen strek.
'n Uiters interessante episode in die boek is die val van Hertzog as leier van 'n koalisieregering oor die kwessie van Suid-Afrika se stand in die Tweede Wêreldoorlog. As 'n kabinetsminister in die koalisieregering het Deneys Reitz 'n voorste setel in dit alles - en hy vertel die verhaal soos niemand anders kon nie.

Wie was Ben Viljoen? Hy sal in die eerste plek onthou word as die Boeregeneraal, die oorwinnaar by die Slag van Vaalkrans en, volgens F.W. Reitz se bekende gedig, die veroweraar van die Lady Roberts-kanon. Om verskeie redes is Ben Viljoen se naam nooit met die hoofstroom van Afrikaner-nasionalisme geassosieer nie. Lank nadat die ander Boeregeneraals se wedervarings in boekvorm verskyn het, is dit nou Ben Viljoen se beurt.

Gedurende die Rebellie van 1914-1915 vind een van die merkwaardigste episodes in die Suid-Afrikaanse geskiedenis plaas: genl. Jan Kemp en sy Rebellekommando van 600 man se uitmergelende tog deur die Kalahariwoestyn. Dié tog, wat op 2 November 1914 begin het, sou haas onbeskryflike eise aan mens en dier stel. Aanvanklik trek die Rebelle te perd, maar later moes 'n groot deel van die kommando te voet verder beweeg.
