Helen Joseph was one of the main organisers in the Women's March of 9 August 1956. Arrested on a charge of high treason, Helen suffered constant persecution.

In this account, Joseph writes about enduring the Treason Trial - one of the longest and most important trials in our history. She shares stories of prison, the daily humiliations, but also their perseverance and small triumphs. Originally banned and unavailable for decades, this book adds to our understanding of South Africa's history.

Commissioned by Graca Machel, in partnership with the Nelson Mandela Foundation, I remember Nelson Mandela shares the memories of the ordinary men and woman whose working lives connected with Nelson Mandela. And while these are sometimes memories of the day to day, the what might be called 'insignificant', they shine much brighter than the usual because each one of these memories reflects the manifold characteristics of an extra-ordinary man. Many of the citizens of South Africa feel as though the lights have been dimmed, that corruption, stories of state capture, anger and protest have tarnished our hope for the nation. It is our wish that this little book will go some way to restoring hope as we too remember the man who brought such promise to all the peoples of this country.

The ANC received a bloody nose in the 2016 local elections, when it lost three major metros to the opposition. Will the fractured ruling party be able to reunite under Cyril Ramaphosa and gain a majority at the polls in 2019? Or could the DA and the EFF overcome their vast ideological divide to oust the ANC?
The South African political landscape has changed dramatically since Jacob Zuma stepped down as president. Veteran political journalist Jan-Jan Joubert looks at all the possible scenarios, taking us behind the scenes into a world of political horse trading to analyse the options available to all the parties in the run-up to the next election. Will the oldest liberation movement in Africa have to form a coalition to stay in power? And what is the likelihood of the ANC's turning to the EFF to bolster its support?

One thing is certain: deals will be done. By examining the results of the local elections, Joubert argues that the 2019 national elections may well be the first in 25 years in which no party wins an outright majority.

In exclusive interviews, political leaders also share their views on the major issues dividing - or perhaps uniting - South Africa today, and point the way to a new political future.

From Cabinda in Angola to Dar es Salaam in Tanzania 4 Reconnaissance Regiment conducted numerous clandestine seaborne raids during the Border War. They attacked strategic targets such as oil facilities, transport infrastructure and even Russian ships. All the while 4 Recce's existence and capability was largely kept secret, even within the South African Defence Force.

With unparalleled access to previously top secret documents, 50 operations undertaken by 4 Recce, other Special Forces units and the South African Navy are described. The daunting Operation Kerslig (1981), in which an operator died in a raid on a Luanda oil refinery and others were injured, is retold in spine-tingling detail.

The book reveals the versatility and effectiveness of this elite unit and also tells of both the successes and failures of its actions. Sometimes missions go wrong, as in Operation Argon (1985) when Captain Wynand Du Toit was captured.

This fascinating work will enthrall anyone with an interest in Special Forces operations. Iron Fist from the Sea takes you right to the raging surf, to the adrenalin and fear that is seaborne raiding.

In die plaaslike verkiesing van 2016 is die ANC bloedneus geslaan toe hy drie metrorade aan die opposisie moes afstaan. Gaan die verdeelde regerende party onder Cyril Ramaphosa kan verenig en in 2019 'n meerderheid by die stembus behaal? Of gaan die DA en die EFF hul groot ideologiese verskille kan oorkom om die ANC uit die kussings te lig?

Sedert Jacob Zuma as president bedank het, het Suid-Afrika se politieke landskap dramaties verander. Die gesoute politieke joernalis Jan-Jan Joubert kyk na alle moontlike scenario's en neem die leser agter die skerms na waar die geheime politieke smouswerk plaasvind.

Hy oorweeg al die beskikbare opsies vir politieke partye in die aanloop tot die volgende verkiesing. Sal die ANC 'n koalisie vorm om in beheer te bly? En wat is die kans dat dié party na die EFF sal draai om meer steun te werf?

Een ding is seker - ooreenkomste sal aangegaan word. Die uitslae van plaaslike en tusenverkiesings wys vir Joubert dat die volgende verkiesing die eerste in 25 jaar kan wees waarin geen party 'n volstrekte meerderheid behaal nie.

In eksklusiewe onderhoude deel politieke leiers ook hul standpunte oor die belangrikste kwessies wat burgers en partye verdeel - of dalk kan verenig.

Wat gaan deur 'n koerantredakteur se kop as 'n woedende John Voster hom vroegoggend bel oor kritiese beriggewing? Hoe hanteer hy dit wanneer 'n kabinetminister een van sy verslaggewers met die vuiste wil bydam? Of as 'n groep regse belhamels 'n politieke nuushond teer en veer? Hoe kry 'n Afrikaanse koerant dit reg om tydens die apartheidsjare volledig oor ANC-beleidstandpunt te rapporteer sonder dat die veiligheidspolisie se sensors ingryp?
Herald Pakendorf beantwoord die vrae, en nog vele meer in sy herinneringstog deur 'n onstuimige tydperk van Suid- Afrika se geskiedenis. Die grootkoppe van apartheid kon hierdie 'liberale' redakteur van Oggenblad (1972-1979) en Die Vaderland (1980-1986) met moeite voor hulle oë verdra.

A timely and important book . . . he brings to it rare clarity and common sense. His book is a fast-paced account of the last sixteen months of the tsar's life; brief, sharp, but laced with well-judged feeling for the dramas of the time.' Catherine Merridale, Observer

In March 1917, Nicholas II, the last Tsar of All the Russias, abdicated and the dynasty that had ruled an empire for three hundred years was forced from power by revolution. In this masterful and forensic study, Robert Service examines the last year Nicholas's reign and the months between that momentous abdication and his death, with his family, in Ekaterinburg in July 1918.

Drawing on the Tsar's own diaries and other hitherto unexamined contemporary records, The Last of the Tsars reveals a man who was almost entirely out of his depth, perhaps even willfully so. It is also a compelling account of the social, economic and political foment in Russia in the aftermath of Alexander Kerensky's February Revolution, the Bolshevik seizure of power in October 1917 and the beginnings of Lenin's Soviet republic.

Boerekrygsgevangenes se strewe na vryheid Boerekrygsgevangenes se strewe na vryheid.

Onstuitbaar en vreesloos. Só was die Boerekrygers wat gedurende die Anglo-Boereoorlog uit krygsgevangekampe probeer ontsnap het. Niks sou hulle keer om weer vry te wees nie: nie 'n moontlike skietdood, 'n oseaan vol haaie, die gevaar om van 'n bewegende trein af te spring of 'n tonnel wat op hulle kon inval nie. In hierdie boek bring Albert Blake van die mees gewaagde ontsnappingspogings deur Boerekrygsgevangenes byeen. Hulle verstom met hul vindingryke planne om die Britse owerhede te uitoorlê en weg te kom uit kampe in Suid-Afrika en Indië, maar ook op die eilande van Bermuda, St. Helena en Ceylon. Hierdie opwindende, ware verhale getuig van mannemoed en die oorwinning van die menslike gees.

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.

Skepelinge is 'n impressionistiese betragting van die vroeë koloniale tydperk in die Suid-Afrikaanse geskiedenis, gebaseer op Schoeman se kennis van die VOC-tyd en meer spesifiek die skeepvaart. Self het hy dit beskryf as 'n 'hibriede skepping . . . wat in laaste instansie beoordeel moet word as produk van die skeppende verbeelding eerder as van navorsing'.
Skepelinge is 'n unieke nalatenskap - veral waar 'oorsprong' nou meer as ooit vantevore ondersoek word.

In this magnificent work of narrative history Lawrence James investigates how, within the space of a hundred years, Europe coerced Africa into becoming subordinate to an emerging modern world. Laced with the experiences of participants and onlookers, Empires in the Sun introduces the men and women - the high-minded, philanthropic, unscrupulous and insane - who stamped their wills indelibly upon the continent.
Between 1830 and 1945, Britain, France, Belgium, Germany, Portugal, Italy and the United States exported their languages, laws, cultures, religions, scientific knowledge and economic systems to Africa. Justifying occupation as emancipation from slavery and savagery, they imposed administrations they argued would bring stability and peace to a continent they regarded as a lacuna of civilisation.
But by 1945 a transformed Africa was preparing to take charge of its own affairs, beginning a process of decolonisation that would take mere twenty or so years. In the wake of the damage wrought by its colonial powers, Africa's new masters were left to choose a path of peace and order, or to answer force with force.
Empires in the Sun is a compelling account of a vast system of exploitation that radically changed the course of world history. Within this story of the capture and recapture of Africa, James also pauses to ask: what did not happen and why?

65 Years of Friendship tells the heartrending story of a remarkable friendship between two remarkable men: world-renowned human-rights lawyer George Bizos, and Nelson Mandela. George and Madiba met as students at the University of the Witwatersrand in 1948.

They would later become legal colleagues, and Mandela would become George Bizos' most famous client soon after, for it was Bizos who formed part of his legal defence during the famous Treason Trial, and again during the Rivonia Trial, when Mandela and others faced the death penalty for plotting to overthrow the state. After seeing his friend sentenced to life imprisonment instead, Bizos became Mandela's lifeline, navigating the complicated network of the Struggle.

Working tirelessly, be it by secretly meeting Oliver Tambo in exile or arguing for the abolishment of the death penalty in the Constitutional Court years later, Bizos offered his unwavering support to Mandela on his long walk towards a democratic South Africa. In this touching homage to their friendship, George Bizos tells a fascinating tale of two men whose work affected the lives of all South Africans.

South African history has been punctuated by some remarkable speeches, such as Nelson Mandela's powerful and courageous statement from the dock during the Rivonia Trial, or, on the other side of the spectrum, P.W. Botha's infamous Rubicon speech, which failed to deliver anticipated reforms and intensified the conflict of the 1980s. Who can forget F.W. de Klerk's speech announcing the unbanning of the ANC and the imminent release of Mandela and other prisoners, or Mandela's speech on the Grand Parade a few days later?

Speeches that Shaped South Africa is the first collection of these historic moments and it examines about 35 speeches from the beginning of apartheid to the present day. The book includes Harold Macmillan's 'Wind of Change', Thabo Mbeki's 'I am an African', Ahmed Kathrada's speech at Nelson Mandela's funeral, and Mmusi Maimane's 'Broken Man' speech. Also included are Steve Biko, Helen Suzman, Winnie Mandela, Oliver Tambo and Julius Malema. Before and after each speech is a narrative that places it in a historical context, explains who the speaker was, and explores the effects and reception of the speech.

This is a fascinating account of South African history over the past seventy years, through the lens of important figures making significant public statements.

Die 25-jarige Lammie de Villiers van die Pretoria-kommando het op Spioenkop gesterf. Die leerstewels wat hy gedra het - en ook generaal Christiaan de Wet se saal, 'n rare velduniform van die ZAR Staatartillerie, en die kerse wat die Boervrou Kotie Steenkamp by haar gehad het toe sy in die veld geleef het, is van die objekte in hierdie boek.
Die volle drama van die Anglo-Boereoorlog word werklik en persoonlik in hierdie versameling ikoniese objekte uit die Oorlogsmuseum se versameling. Die boek volg grootliks die kronologiese verloop van die oorlog, maar lig ook sekere temas uit, waaronder Boere- en Britse wapens, mediese sorg en die vernaamste rolspelers in die konflik.
Die 100 ikoniese items word aangevul deur aangrypende historiese foto's. 'n Verdere 200 bykomende objekte is ingesluit om die storie te help vertel van 'n oorlog wat 'n onuitwisbare merk op die Suid-Afrikaanse landskap gelaat het.
