Die keiser loop in sy pragkleed deur die skare. Net slim mense kan dié kleed sien. 'Hoera vir die keiser se nuwe kleed!' juig die mense. Tot 'n seuntjie verbaas uitroep: 'Maar die keiser is dan kaal!'

Political governance in South Africa has collapsed. Scandals of corruption, evidence of nepotism, rampant maladministration in provinces, incompetence in public offices and a general decline in the quality of leadership are there for all to see.

In the authors' view, this state of affairs has its origins in the messiness and collapse of the African National Congress. As helplessness deepens in our society, concerned citizens ask: What will happen to South Africa?

The Fall of the ANC: What Next? seeks to answer this question of the fate that awaits the country.

As national director of public prosecutions from 2005 to 2007, Advocate Vusi Pikoli pursued criminal charges against the current president of South Africa, Jacob Zuma, and the convicted former national police commissioner, Jackie Selebi. It was his dogged determination to bring the country's top cop to account that ultimately saw Pikoli removed from office and the subject of a public inquiry into his suspension.

My Second Initiation traces Pikoli's journey from his first graduation to manhood in the hills of the Eastern Cape, to his second life-shaping experience in the corridors of power in government.

Pikoli has a deeply ingrained loyalty to the Constitution of the country and a keenly developed sense of justice, cultivated on the politically aware streets and rugby fields of New Brighton township. He recounts how he fled with his ANC unit into exile and spent 10 years away from his home and his family, suffering the loss of a child and of a man he considered a brother.

He provides an insider's perspective on cases that have dominated discussion over the past decade from the Arms Deal and the Scorpions to the Brett Kebble murder, Travelgate, the Special Browse Mole Report and the Hoax E-mail saga. Pikoli reveals how he grappled with the dilemma of prosecuting friends and comrades, how he navigated through repeated attempts at political interference and how he confronted one of his persecutors in a poignant face-to-face encounter.



'An account that is as bold, honest and truthful as it is painful and discomforting. Vusi Pikoli is a person of unquestionable integrity, for which South Africa will be eternally grateful.' - Barney Pityana

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!

A personal and powerful essay from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the bestselling author of Americanah and Half of a Yellow Sun. `I would like to ask that we begin to dream about and plan for a different world. A fairer world. A world of happier men and happier women who are truer to themselves. And this is how to start: we must raise our daughters differently. We must also raise our sons differently...' What does 'feminism' mean today? In this personal, eloquently argued essay - adapted from her much-admired Tedx talk of the same name - Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie offers readers a unique definition of feminism for the twenty-first century, one rooted in inclusion and awareness. Drawing extensively on her own experiences and her deep understanding of the often masked realities of sexual politics, here is one remarkable author's exploration of what it means to be a woman now - an of-the-moment rallying cry for why we should all be feminists.

Affirmative tears: Why representivity does not equal equality depicts for the first time that which is forgotten in the implementation of affirmative action, namely people and their personal stories of affirmative action. Dr Dirk Hermann, leading expert on the subject of affirmative action, speaks to people who know what it's like to be disadvantaged because of the colour of their skin.

He also speaks to leaders who were involved in the 1994 negotiations (including former President FW de Klerk and IFP leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi) and finds out how affirmative action fits into the Constitution and what the settlement was with respect to affirmative action during the negotiations.

In the book, Dr Hermann compares two opposites of affirmative action - one that leads to tears and one that can lead to joy - and, in so doing, reignites the debate on affirmative action by presenting hard facts.

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'.

Of an estimated 1 billion people in the world who are trapped in a cycle of grinding poverty and despair, a disproportionate number live in sub-Saharan Africa. In this account, Moeletsi Mbeki analyses the plight of Africa and concludes that the fault lies not with the mass of its people but with its rulers -- the political elites who contrive to keep their fellow citizens poor while enriching themselves. Concentrating mainly on South Africa, his country of birth, and Zimbabwe, his home when he was in exile, Mbeki tells a tale of lost opportunities and extinguished hopes. Yet Mbeki is no Afro-pessimist. Along with his candid expose of the problems, he poses some suggestions about what needs to be done to break the stranglehold of the African elites on political power and to set sub-Saharan Africa once more on the road to development.

Without much fanfare Ahmed Kathrada worked alongside Nelson Mandela, Walter Sisulu and other giants in the struggle to end racial discrimination in South Africa. He faced house arrest and many court trials related to his activism until, finally, a trial for sabotage saw him sentenced to life imprisonment alongside Mandela and six others.
Conversations with a Gentle Soul has its origins in a series of discussions between Kathrada and Sahm Venter about his opinions, encounters and experiences. Throughout his life, Kathrada has refused to hang on to negative emotions such as hatred and bitterness. Instead, he radiates contentment and the openness of a man at peace with himself. His wisdom is packaged within layers of optimism, mischievousness and humour, and he provides insights that are of value to all South Africans.

In this insightful and provocative book, Frans Rautenbach proposes a complete overhaul of policy thinking, and provides fresh arguments that effectively address South Africa's high unemployment, race problems and lack of education.

Rautenbach examines the fundamental problem of rent-seeking, to which he proposes two antidotes: the free market and decentralisation of government. Along the way he tackles holy cows such as affirmative action, trade unions, labour law and welfare payments. He also addresses contentious topics such as racism, white privilege, political correctness, state funding of higher education and mounting evidence that trade unions substantially suppress employment growth.

Written by a labour lawyer with a proven track record in a range of policy issues, South Africa Can Work speaks effectively to a cross-section of readers of all disciplines, and brings sorely needed good news.

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.

Die bekende dr. Pieter Mulder is aan die woord oor sy wedervaringe in die politiek. Dit handel hoofsaaklik oor sy meer onlangse ervarings (ná 1994) as parlementslid, maar ook oor sy ervarings voor die eerste demokratiese verkiesing. Oor byna elke land kan hy 'n storie vertel, o.a. oor die keer toe 'n Duitse regeringsamptenaar nie rekening gehou het met Afrikatyd nie.
