Most books about the environmental crisis are densely academic, depressingly doom-laden and crammed with impersonal statistics.
We are the Weather is different - accessible, immediate and with a single clear solution that individual readers can put into practice
straight away.
A significant proportion of global carbon emissions come from farming meat. Just changing our dinners - cutting out meat for one meal per day - is enough to change the world.
With his distinctive wit, insight and humanity, Foer frames this essential debate as no one else could, bringing it to vivid and urgent life.

George Soros is among the world's most prominent public figures. He is one of the history's most successful investors and his philanthropy, led by the Open Society Foundations, has donated over $14 billion to promote democracy and human rights in more than 120 countries. But in recent years, Soros has become the focus of sustained right-wing attacks in the United States and around the world based on his commitment to open society, progressive politics and his Jewish background. In this brilliant and spirited book, Soros offers a compendium of his philosophy, a clarion call-to-arms for the ideals of an open society: freedom, democracy, rule of law, human rights, social justice, and social responsibility as a universal idea.

'I am their daughter. They are me. I am my Baba's stubborn back bone and his great brows. I am my mum's resilience and wide birthing hips. I am their profanity, their nerves, I am their traditions, their hang ups, their loss, their tears. I am their human, their child, their daughter.' Born to parents who had emigrated to Britain from Bangladesh, Nadiya Hussain's first roles were those of daughter and sister. Considering her later roles as a devout Muslim entering an arranged marriage and becoming a wife and mother herself, Nadiya questions the barriers that many women, no matter who they are or where they live, have to cross in order to be accepted or heard. Importantly, she shows us how, at the core of it all, we are essentially tackling the same issues throughout our lives despite our cultural, social and religious differences. Each chapter deals with a different role, and Nadiya writes with warmth, humour, honesty and deep emotion about what each one means to her and how she embodies all the different expectations of these roles in her life. Writing about growing up in a large family, who were culturally torn between two countries, to her thoughts on becoming a celebrity, after winning The Great British Bake Off, the later chapters cover her more recent roles of 'baker', 'Twitter handle' and 'TV presenter'.

'Johannesburg - Late on Friday night, Iqbal Survé phoned Mandla Mandela, the ailing statesman's grandson: “Tell Madiba, Independent's coming home,” he said. “If there's one thing that will make him get better faster, it's this,” the younger Mandela responded.'
This is how one of Independent Newspapers' titles told its readers in April 2013 that it had been bought by Iqbal Survé's Sekunjalo Independent Media Consortium for R2 billion.
The journalists of South Africa's biggest newspaper firm, which counted The Star, Cape Times and The Mercury among its titles, were optimistic that new, local ownership would mark an end to the callous management of its Irish overlords of the previous two decades.
But the day after Nelson Mandela died, a storm engulfed the group when Survé fired Cape Times editor Alide Dasnois amid accusations of disrespect towards Mandela although many pointed to a Cape Times story about one of his companies as the real reason for his ire.
In the dramatic days that followed, Independent's newsrooms across the country were torn apart by suspicion, recriminations and what many of the journalists believed was a witch hunt to expel those not prepared to toady to Survé.
Now Dasnois and Chris Whitfield, who was head of the Cape papers at the time of the ownership change, tell the inside story of the Survé reign.

It's easy to imagine that state capture began with Jacob Zuma and the Guptas. But you'd be wrong.
Born out of the ANC Women's League 20 years ago, Bosasa has come to be described as the ANC's 'Heart of Darkness'. At its helm today is Gavin Watson, a struggle-rugby-player-turned-tenderpreneur who made it his business to splash out on gifts and cash to get up close and personal with the country's top politicians and civil servants. In return, Bosasa won tenders to the tune of billions of rands and - with friends in high places - stayed clear of prosecution. Adriaan Basson has been investigating Bosasa since he was a rookie journalist 13 years ago. He has been sued, intimidated and threatened, but has stuck to the story like a bloodhound. Now, in the wake of the explosive findings of the Zondo commission, he has weaved the threads of Bosasa's story together.

Blessed by Bosasa is a riveting in-depth investigation into an extraordinary story of high-level corruption and rampant pillage, of backdoor dealings and grandiose greed. Through substantial research and a number of interviews with key individuals, Basson unveils the shady, cult-like underbelly of the criminal company that held the Zuma government in the palm of its hand.

Set against the raging land debate, For the Love of the Land introduces South Africans to the unsung heroes of the agricultural industry. A diverse crop of farmers from across the country share heartwarming stories, at times surviving generational tragedies that plague our past. From the farms and agri-businesses who feed South Africa, the book focuses on the power of land to promote nation building and social cohesion by telling stories that are often overlooked by broader society.

A much-needed account of our farmers' commitment to the earth and South Africa, truly saluting the unsung heroes of agriculture - Nick Serfontein, Free State Farmer of the Year, wrote an open letter to President Cyril Ramaphosa, asking him to include commercial farmers in plans for effective land reform.

Set against the backdrop of our heated land reform debate, this book proves that farming is often a labour of love - Gloria Serobe, Founding Member and CEO of Women Investment Portfolio Holdings.

Die feite spreek vanself: Die Afrikaner is in 'n volskaalse bestaanskrisis. Die redes hiervoor is al dikwels in die verlede ondersoek, maar nog nooit só brutaal eerlik, só trompop en só daadwerklik gekonfronteer as in Die pad na selfbestuur: Anderkant die mislukking van staatsbestuur nie.

Dié boek ondersoek die krisis waarin die Afrikanergemeenskap homself bevind sowel as voorstelle vir oplossings om steeds vry, veilig en voorspoedig in hierdie land te kan bly woon. Dit bied 'n padkaart na die enigste beskikbare én werkbare oplossing - groter selfbestuur - met planne om uitvoering daaraan te gee.

Die hede gaan nie weggaan nie, die verlede gaan nie terugkom nie, en die toekoms gaan nie vanself gebeur nie. Daarom is oorspronklike, vindingryke en ingrypende planne wat met skeppende vernuwing uitgevoer word nou nodig. Van hierdie planne vind neerslag in Flip Buys se toekomsblik op Suid-Afrika in 2030 wanneer konsentrasiegebiede van Afrikaners 'n sleutelrol in bevredigende dienslewering, woon- en werkplekke gaan speel.

“Hierdie merkwaardige boek stippel 'n roetekaart uit op die pad van groeiende selfbestuur, 'n toekomsvisie en 'n pad van hoop. Ryk aan internasionale en nasionale voorbeelde van selfbestuur wat die skrywer, soos altyd, op ewewigtige, beskeie, maar kristalhelder wyse oordra. Dié boek kom in 'n tyd waarin wit mense (maar by name Afrikaners) onder geweldige druk verkeer. Dit verdien derhalwe nie net 'n wye leserskring nie, maar doelgerigte aansporing.” Prof. Flip Smit, demograaf

“Afrikaners stoei oor hul toekoms in Suid-Afrika. Die vyandige staat wat verswak laat hulle magteloos voel. Selfbestuur plaas die toekoms in die hande van die gemeenskap. Dit is 'n bevredigende gedagte. Hierdie boek gee diepte aan die idee van selfbestuur en gaan energie losmaak. Dit is 'n tydige boek wat rigting gee.” Dr. Dirk Hermann, uitvoerende hoof: Solidariteit

“Buys se verfrissende boodskap van hoop dui 'n duidelike pad aan wat Afrikaners en hul instellings deur selfbestuur moet volg om 'n beter toekoms te skep. Terwyl AfriForum en ander instellings van die Solidariteit Beweging sal voortgaan om te veg teen agteruitgang en onreg, bied Buys 'n goeie oorsig en vooruitskouing van die Beweging se uiters belangrike boukomponent. Ek het hoop, want ons gaan self die toekoms skep wat ons vir onsself én ons nageslag wil hê.” Kallie Kriel, uitvoerende hoof: AfriForum

“Flip Buys se boek verteenwoordig 'n helder ligbaken in die hedendaagse politieke gesprek. Buys beïndruk nie net met 'n diepgaande historiese kennis nie, maar ook met 'n goed geskryfde, verbeeldingryke en hoopgewende antwoord op die uitdagings van ons tyd. Hierdie boek is 'n absolute móét vir alle nugterdenkende Afrikaners.” Prof. Danie Goosen, akademiese hoof: Akademia

Flip Buys is die voorsitter van die Solidariteit Beweging, 'n sambreelorganisasie wat uit 18 afsonderlike entiteite (waaronder Solidariteit, AfriForum, die FAK en Helpende Hand) bestaan en tans meer as 500 000 gesinne verteenwoordig

The privately-operated, nightly labour trains running between Booysens and Ressano Garcia left deep scars in the urban and rural cultures of black communities whether in the form of popular songs, such as Stimela and Shosholoza, or in a belief in nocturnal witches' trains that captured and conveyed zombie workers to the region's most unpopular places of employment. By tracing the up- and down- rail journeys undertaken by black migrants over half a century it is possible to reconstruct how racial thinking, expressed logistically, reflected the evolving systems of segregation and apartheid. Mozambican migrant labour formed an integral part of a largely hidden, parallel universe that created the wealth of 20th century South Africa and some of the deepest roots of an on-going tragedy lie, to this very day, besides the rails of the Eastern Main Line

What was the fate of the first generations of black women born after abolition in America? Struggle: to create autonomous and beautiful lives, to escape new forms of servitude, and to live as if they really were free. This book recreates the radical imagination and wayward practices of these young women by describing the world through their eyes. Recreating their fragmentary life stories using a combination of archival research and virtuosic literary imagination, a very different vision of the twentieth century emerges, one that offers an intimate chronicle of black radicalism. Here is an aesthetical and riotous history - a revolution in tastes and mores that set the stage for the Jazz Age and the social upheavals.

How a government sold its soul for braai packs, designer bags and other bribes. “An inside account of state capture” Just as South Africans were starting to come to grips with the staggering cost of state capture, the Bosasa bombshell hit the country. This grand-scale corruption scandal cost South Africa billions of rands while the politicians involved were bought for as little as braai packs and booze. While investigating state capture, The Zondo commission of inquiry blew the lid off the tangled web of bribery that was Bosasa. Gripping testimony before the commission about “little black books”, cash bribes and walk-in vaults held the public in thrall while a new realisation dawned: The notorious Gupta family had not been the only ones pillaging the country. In The Bosasa Billions, best-selling author James-Brent Styan and co-writer Paul Vecchiatto uncover the sordid story of how one company exploited the greed of corrupt politicians and bureaucrats to establish an extensive tender network stretching right to the top of the ANC government. Its cast of characters include: • Angelo Agrizzi, the whistleblower who makes new revelations to Styan about the secrets behind Bosasa's glittering profit margins, • Vernie Petersen, the prisons boss who waged a lonely battle against the dark forces taking over his department, and • Gavin Watson, the ultra-religious Bosasa puppet master who parlayed his family's struggle credentials into vast wealth while leading his employees in prayer every morning. Ultimately, however, Bosasa was not in the business of saving souls, but selling them.

What does it take to deceive those closest to you? How do you lead a double life and not lose yourself? Is there ever a point of return? Jonathan Ancer explores these questions in the tales of SA's spies: from the navy super spy on the Russian pay roll to the party girl who fell in love with Cuba and the idealistic students used and abused in apartheid's intelligence war. Ancer gets under the skin of what it takes to betray those closest to you - and what it is means to be betrayed.

In October 2015, the Gupta brothers offered Mcebisi Jonas the position of minister of finance in exchange for R600 million. Then deputy minister of finance, Jonas turned down the bribe and a period of deep introspection followed for him. How did we reach this point, and what did the future hold for South Africa's democracy and the economy?
In After Dawn, Mcebisi Jonas analyses the crisis at the heart of our current system, which places politics at the centre of policymaking and implementation at the expense of growth. In this important and authoritative book, Jonas first unpacks and analyses the current badlands of the South African economic and political landscape. In the second half, Jonas proposes a series of workable and practical solutions for transitioning South Africa into a growing, job-creating country including:

Putting inclusive growth at the centre of economic policy;
rapidly expanding new technological capacities and knowledge to transition to a twenty-first-century economy;
expanding human capabilities at scale;
path-changing trade-offs to catalyse the next phase of South Africa's development;
nurturing a corruption-free, high-performance state built on meritocracy and innovation; and
changing the nature of politics.
Time is of the essence and the window of opportunity is narrowing for all South Africans to work together towards the South Africa we all imagined was possible in 1994.

In the twenty-first century, we like to believe that we have moved beyond scientific racism, that most people accept race as a social construct, not a biological one. But race science is experiencing a revival, fuelled by the misuse of science by certain political groups. Even well-intentioned scientists, through their use of racial categories in genetics and medicine, betray their suspicion that race has some basis in biology. In truth, it is no more real than it was hundreds of years ago, when our racial hierarchies were devised by those in power.
