In 2008 is Suid-Afrika tot in sy fondamente geskud deur die omstrede Reitz-video-voorval aan die Universiteit van die Vrystaat. In dié video onderwerp vier wit mansstudente vyf swart werkers aan sogenaamde keuringstoetse vir koshuisplasing. Na videobeelde van hoe die werkers kos moes eet waarin daar klaarblyklik geürineer is, het rassespanning op die kampus opgevlam en stemme van protes wêreldwyd opgeklink.

Nearly two decades after he was anointed by Nelson Mandela as his successor, Cyril Ramaphosa has at last taken office as the president of South Africa. But the country Ramaphosa has inherited is very different from the rainbow nation that Mandela led in the 1990s.
The South Africa of 2018 is divided and caught in a web of state capture, corruption, poverty and despair. The Zuma years have left the country and its institutions battered and bruised.
Can Ramaphosa pull South Africa out of the quagmire and restore it to its former glory, as so many people desperately hope? Is his turn at the presidency really the beginning of a new dawn.
Ralph Mathekga answers these questions, and more, in this riveting book.

With new, updated material, P. J.

Ray Hartley reveals how Cyril Ramaphosa pulled off one of the greatest political comebacks of modern times, and what lies in store for the new president as he embarks on a hefty clean-up operation of a country in shambles.
Ray Hartley's bestselling 2017 biography, Ramaphosa: The Man Who Would Be King, offered a cogent analysis of how the former nearly-man of South African politics handled the key challenges he faced in the unions, in business and in politics. In this updated edition, Hartley questions whether the former'man in the middle' can lead from the front, now that he has publicly denounced the besmirched Zuma and his corrupted ANC and established himself as a worthy recipient of the country's top job.

So begins a new era in South African politics.

What is it like to be born dirt-poor in South Africa? Clinton Chauke knows, having been raised alongside his two sisters in a remote village bordering the Kruger National Park and a squatter camp outside Pretoria.

Clinton is a young village boy when awareness dawns of how poor his family really is: there's no theft in the village because there's absolutely nothing to steal. But fire destroys the family hut, and they decide to move back to the city. There he is forced to confront the rough-and-tumble of urban life as a 'bumpkin'. He is Venda, whereas most of his classmates speak Zulu or Tswana and he has to face their ridicule while trying to pick up two or more languages as fast as possible.

With great self-awareness, Clinton negotiates the pitfalls and lifelines of a young life: crime and drugs, football, religion, friendship, school, circumcision and, ultimately, becoming a man. Throughout it all, he displays determination as well as a self-deprecating humour that will keep you turning the pages till the end.

Clinton's story is one that will give you hope that even in a sea of poverty there are those that refuse to give up and, ultimately, succeed.

In How to Fix the Future, Andrew Keen combines his experiences in Silicon Valley with extensive interviews and analysis to identify the strategies we need in order to tackle the huge challenges of this digital century, and shows how we have dealt with radical technological change in the past, especially after the Industrial Revolution. Travelling around the world, from India to Estonia, Germany to Singapore, he investigates the best (and worst) practices in five key areas - regulation, innovation, social responsibility, consumer choice and education - and concludes by examining whether we are seeing the beginning of the end of the America-centric digital world. Powerfully argued and deeply engaging, How to Fix the Future provides hope that the economic inequality, unemployment, erosion of privacy and individual alienation that the digital upheaval is causing may still be solvable, and that the future may yet become something that we can look forward to.

In White Boy Running, Christopher Hope explored what it looked and felt like to grow up in a country gripped by an 'absurd, racist insanity'. Now comes Cafe de Move-on Blues, Hope's contemplation of the situation white South Africans find themselves in today, post-Apartheid.

Emigration is accelerating at a rate never seen before, diasporas are spreading from Winnipeg to Wimbledon, and the spectre of neighbouring Zimbabwe looms large as violence spreads. As one by one, the old imperial idols, from Cecil Rhodes to Paul Kruger, are pulled from their pedestals, Hope ponders the question: 'Who is next?'

In this intimate and powerful portrait of race, politics and people in South Africa today, Hope, yet again, uses his mesmerising prose to get to the heart of the issue, and to reveal what can be done to stem the flow of whites leaving the rainbow nation

How To Steal A Country describes the vertiginous decline in political leadership in South Africa from Mandela to Zuma and its terrible consequences. Robin Renwick's account reads in parts like a novel - a crime novel - for Sherlock Holmes old adversary, Professor Moriarty, the erstwhile Napoleon of Crime, would have been impressed by the ingenuity, audacity and sheer scale of the looting of the public purse, let alone the impunity with which it has been accomplished.
Based on Renwick's personal experiences of the main protagonists, it describes the extraordinary influence achieved by the Gupta family for those seeking to do business with state-owned enterprises in South Africa, and the massive amounts earned by Gupta related companies from their associations with them. The ensuing scandals have engulfed Bell Pottinger, KPMG, McKinsey and other multinationals. The primary responsibility for this looting of the state however, rests squarely with President Zuma and key members of his government. But South Africa has succeeded in establishing a genuinely non-racial society full of determined and enterprising people, offering genuine hope for the future. These include independent journalists, black and white, who refuse to be silenced, and the judges, who have acted with courage and independence.

The book concludes that change will come, either by the ruling party reverting to the values of Mandela and Archbishop Tutu, or by the reckoning it otherwise will face one day.

Plofbare opinies was nog altyd 'n onderskeidende kenmerk van Afrikaners. Politici, skrywers, joernaliste en die man op straat was nog nooit skaam om by bekgevegte betrokke te raak nie. Tradisioneel was die gedrukte media die forum waar polemieke uitgewoed het. In die vroegste dae aan die Kaap is die slawekwessie driftig gedebatteer, en toe die Voortrekkers hulle skrede noordwaarts gerig het, het teenstrydige argumente uitgespeel in een van die vroeë Suid-Afrikaanse koerante, Grocott's Mail.
Die waarde van gesprekke in die aanloop en nadraai van geskiedkundige gebeure soos rebellies, opstande en oorloë kan nie onderskat word nie. Politieke verwikkelinge soos Suid- Afrikaners se gesprekke met die ANC toe dié organisasie nog verban was, het die hele land aan die stry gehad. Om nie te praat van Afrikaans en sy rasse-bagasie of kerksake soos die Belharbelydenis en die hantering van gay lidmate nie. En wie sal die spanning wat tussen H.F. Verwoerd en N.P. van Wyk Louw ontstaan het met die pluimsaad-polemiek, vergeet? Piekniek by Dingaan en die Voëlvry-beweging het nie net opskuddings op kultuurgebied veroorsaak nie. Ook het die eggo's van kwessies soos “gemengde” sport en boikotte, en die skandes wat sportsterre soos Hansie Cronjé, Joost van der Westhuizen en Oscar Pistorius veroorsaak het, in alle sfere van die samelewing weerklink.

Misdaad soos plaasaanvalle en -moorde is daagliks op Suid-Afrikaners se lippe, net soos wat daar steeds oor figure soos Daisy de Melker, Gert van Rooyen en Joey Haarhoff gegons word. In Polemieke bied Gabriël Botma lesers 'n blik op bekende én byna vergete woordtwiste wat die Suid-Afrikaanse geskiedenis help slyp het. Karakters wat 'n sentrale rol in Afrikanerpolemieke gespeel het, word aan die vergetelheid ontruk, en hedendaagse polemici kom onder die loep. Binne die konteks van Afrikaner-nasionalisme het dié strydpunte deurgaans gelei tot groter insig onder betrokkenes en lesers, maar terselfdertyd is die verdelingslyne wat van ver af kom, dieper afgeëts.

We are on the cusp of a momentous change.
The ANC has governed South Africa for more than two decades but its iron grip is slipping. For the first time since 1994 there is no guarantee that it will retain power. If ANC support drops below 50% in the 2019 elections, the political landscape will be transformed dramatically.
Will Mmusi Maimane and Julius Malema be in charge? Or will the ANC and the EFF join forces? What will this mean for our nation?

The ongoing assassinations of anti-apartheid activists led to rumours that some kind of third force must be responsible. The South African government flatly denied any involvement. All investigations of the matter were met with stony silence.
The first crack in the wall came with the publication by the Vrye Weekblad newspaper of the extraordinary story of Dirk Coetzee, former Security Branch Captain. His tale of murder, kidnapping, bombing and poisoning provided corroboration of the shocking confessions made by Almond Nofemela on death row. Slowly the dark secret started unravelling under the probing of determined journalists.

In The Heart Of The Whore introduces the reader to the secret underworld of the death squads. It explains when and why they were created, who ran them, what methods they employed, who the victims and perpetrators were. Jacques Pauw was more closely involved with the subject than any other person outside the police and armed forces. In this groundbreaking work he looks at the devastating effect of the secret war on the opponents of apartheid as well as the corrosive effects on the people who committed these crimes.

Jacques Pauw is the author of the bestselling book The President's Keepers. He is an award-winning journalist, television documentary producer and author. This is NOT an updated edition, just a re-release of the original 1992 book.
