Hier vertel hy sy verhaal openhartig, van die dwelmhole van Hillbrow tot in 'n maksimum-sekuriteitsel in die Weskoppies-hospitaal, waar God hom van 'n gewisse dood red. Hykie nooi jou uit om te onthou dat God se liefde ook vir jou bedoel is, en dat, al doen ons wat, God ons nie laat gaan nie.

Many of the photographs are as familiar as they are iconic: Nelson Mandela gazing through the bars of his prison cell on Robben Island; a young Miriam Makeba smiling and dancing; Hugh Masekela as a schoolboy receiving the gift of a trumpet from Louis Armstrong; Henry 'Mr Drum' Nxumalo; the Women's March of 1955; the Sophiatown removals; the funeral of the Sharpeville massacre victims …
Photographer Jürgen Schadeberg was the man behind the camera, recording history as it unfolded in apartheid South Africa, but his personal story is no less extraordinary. His affiliation for the displaced, the persecuted and the marginalised was already deeply rooted by the time he came to South Africa from Germany in 1950 and began taking pictures for the fledgling Drum magazine. In this powerfully evocative memoir of an international, award-winning career spanning over 50 years - in Europe, Africa and the US - this behind-the-scenes journey with a legendary photojournalist and visual storyteller is a rare and special privilege.

Schadeberg's first-hand experiences as a child in Berlin during the Second World War, where he witnessed the devastating effect of the repressive Nazi regime, and felt the full wrath of the Allied Forces' relentless bombing of the city, are vividly told. The only child of an actress, who left her son largely to his own devices, Jürgen became skilled at living by his wits, and developed a resourcefulness that held him in good stead throughout his life. At the end of the war, his mother married a British officer and emigrated to South Africa, leaving Jürgen behind in a devastated Germany to fend for himself. With some luck and a great deal of perseverance, he was able to pursue his interest in photography in Hamburg, undergoing training as an unpaid 'photographic volunteer' at the German Press Agency, then graduating to taking photos at football matches.

After two years there, Jürgen made the decision to travel to South Africa. He arrived at Johannesburg station on a cold winter's morning. He had a piece of paper with his mother's address on it, his worldly possessions in a small, cheap suitcase on the platform beside him, and his Leica camera, as always, around his neck.

Hierdie versameling kortverhale bied 'n histeriese kykie op alledaagse situasies: 'n tango-les in die platteland; die tannie so "eenvoudig soos 'n ses-stuk legkaart"; 'n besoek aan 'n tandarts en sy assistent wat meer as net 'n spreekkamer deel. Lloyd Zandberg se debuut is 'n boek vol deernis en humor, met vriendelike gebruiksaanwysings vir mense wat nie so goed lees nie. Kyk één keer deur sy oë na die lewe, en niks sal ooit weer dieselfde wees nie.

Dit is die ironie van die lewe dat die dinge waarna jy die hardste streef omdat jy meen dat jy daardeur geluk kan verwerf, jou ontgaan juis op die oomblik wanneer dit net binne jou bereik lê. Dit is die pad van die lewe wat na eensaamheid lei.
Willem, 'n uitgeworpene, is oortuig dat daar niks op die aarde is om na te strewe en voor te werk nie. Dan kry hy 'n nuwe geloof wanneer hy weer verantwoordelikheid kry vir plante en diere, vir lewende dinge wat van hom afhanklik is.
Willem se pad kruis met Hans. Hans aanvaar al sy lewe lank dat elke mens verantwoordelikhede het en 'n plig om te werk. En wanneer hy begin vrae stel en die aanvaarding verdwyn, plaas hy nie net homself op die pad na eensaamheid nie, maar hy vernietig ook die geluk wat twee ander mense moontlik sou kon vind.

Almost Human is the personal story of a charismatic and visionary palaeontologist, a rich and readable narrative about science, exploration, and what it means to be human.
In 2013, Lee Berger caught wind of a cache of bones in a hard-to-reach underground cave near Johannesburg. He put out a call around the world for collaborators - men and women small and adventurous enough to be able to squeeze through 8-inch tunnels to reach a sunless cave 40 feet underground. With this team of 'underground astronauts', Berger made the discovery of a lifetime: hundreds of prehistoric bones, including entire skeletons of at least 15 individuals, all perhaps two million years old. Their features combined those of known pre-hominids with those more human than anything ever before seen in prehistoric remains. Berger's team had discovered an all new species: Homo naledi.
The cave proved to be the richest pre-hominid site ever discovered, full of implications that challenge how we define ourselves as human. Did these ancestors of ours bury their dead? If so, they must have had an awareness of death, a level of self-knowledge: the very characteristic we used to define ourselves as human. Did an equally advanced species inhabit Earth with us, or before us? Addressing these questions, Berger counters the arguments of those colleagues who have questioned his controversial interpretations and astounding finds.

The New York Times bestselling author examines how people can drive creative, moral, and organisational progress―and how leaders can encourage originality in their organisations.
How can we originate new ideas, policies and practices without risking it all? Adam Grant shows how to improve the world by championing novel ideas and values that go against the grain, battling conformity, and bucking outdated traditions.

Using surprising studies and stories spanning business, politics, sports, and entertainment, Grant explores how to recognize a good idea, speak up without getting silenced, build a coalition of allies, choose the right time to act, and manage fear and doubt. Parents will learn how to nurture originality in children, and leaders will discover how to fight groupthink to build cultures that welcome dissent.

Told through dazzling case studies of people going against the grain, you'll encounter an entrepreneur who pitches the reasons not to invest, a woman at Apple who challenged Steve Jobs from three levels below, an analyst who challenged secrecy at the CIA, a billionaire financial wizard who fires employees who don't criticize him, and the TV executive who saved Seinfeld from the cutting room floor. Originals will give you groundbreaking insights about rejecting conformity and how to change the world.

Paul Kruger Toesprake en korrespondensie, 1881-1899 probeer om die klem te plaas op minder bekende briefwisseling en optredes van Kruger om sodoende 'n verteenwoordigende beeld van staatspresident Kruger se werksaamhede en standpunte aan te bied. Die teks is deeglik toegelig met ophelderende voetnote. Verder is 'n algemene inleiding, agtergrondsinligting en -ontleding verskaf by elke toepaslike breër tydperk in Kruger se lewe tot 1900.
Die beeld wat van Kruger na vore kom uit 'n deeglike ontleding van veral sy minder bekende korrespondensie en toesprake, verskil dikwels ingrypend van dit wat oor 'n lang tydperk in publikasies oor hom aangebied is. Hierdie publikasie vervul daarom 'n belangrike behoefte: Dit stel die leser in staat om regstreeks deur die lees en bestudering van Kruger se standpunte tot eie en nuwe gevolgtrekkings te kom.

In 2015, South Africa celebrated its 21st anniversary as a democratic state. This anniversary was in part boosted by the largely successful rolling out of a fifth free and fair election process in the previous year, albeit with minor hiccups - among others, a vibrant and at times boisterous political party scene; re-energised civil society participation, and a critical reflection of the Chapter 9 institutions, with some under constant scrutiny. However, South Africa's coming-of-age story has also been peppered with signs of increased dissatisfaction with governmental decision making and leadership style, protests around the delivery of services, continuous development and poverty issues as well as concerns about the republic's international conduct and its image and reputation in Africa and the world. Government and politics in South Africa provide an up-to-date introductory narrative on the contemporary political environment in South Africa. Government and politics in South Africa examines and evaluates the processes and policies in place that drive South Africa every day. While most chapters continue to reflect on the first two decades of post-settlement South African politics and governments, particular emphasis is placed upon the Jacob Zuma-led government's first term of office (2009-2014), also touching on the initial months of this ahead of state's second tenure as president. It examines the current political sphere, the local, provincial and national government, the policy footprint related to these governments, voting behaviour and party politics, foreign policy and the global political economy. Government and politics in South Africa are aimed at both undergraduate and post-graduate students and other interested observers to the complexities of South African politics and the governmental machinery that operates the country. Chris Landsberg (editor-in-chief) is SARChI chair of African diplomacy and foreign policy at the University of Johannesburg. Suzanne Graham (co-editor) is senior lecturer and doctor of politics at the University of Johannesburg.

The story of a 'rogue unit' operating within the South African Revenue Service (SARS) became entrenched in the public mind following a succession of sensational reports published by the Sunday Times in 2014. The unit, the reports claimed, had carried out a series of illegal spook operations: they had spied on President Jacob Zuma, run a brothel, illegally bought spyware and entered into unlawful tax settlements.
In a plot of Machiavellian proportions, head of the elite crime-busting unit Johann van Loggerenberg and many of SARS's top management were forced to resign. Van Loggerenberg's select team of investigators, with their impeccable track record of busting high-level financial fraudsters and nailing tax criminals, lost not only their careers but also their reputations.
Now, in this extraordinary account, they finally get to put the record straight and the rumours to rest: there was no 'rogue unit'. The public had been deceived, seemingly by powers conspiring to capture SARS for their own ends.
Shooting down the allegations he has faced one by one, Van Loggerenberg tells the story of what really happened inside SARS, revealing details of some of the unit's actual investigations.

About the authors
Johann van Loggerenberg was a group executive at SARS before he resigned from the tax authority in early 2015 after 16 years' service. His name featured publicly for his involvement in SARS investigations into individuals such as Billy Rautenbach, Irvin Khoza, Julius Malema, Lolly Jackson, Glenn Agliotti and Radovan Krejcir. He currently consults for law firms and private forensic investigation companies.
Adrian Lackay is a former spokesperson for SARS. Before he started at the tax authority in 2003, he worked as a journalist and political correspondent.

Vida se beste vriend staan uiteindelik op trou. Maar as hy hom lewenslank wil opsaal met 'n meisie wat in alle opsigte die Barbie-model 'n treetjie voor is, is dit sy saak. Dit is wel hinderlik dat sy as 'best woman' 'n tuxedo-aandrok moet dra en alles wat daarmee saamgaan om die verloofde gelukkig te hou. Ook die feit dat hulle haar met die verloofde se broer wil afpaar. Maar net vir die troue en net vir haar beste vriend is dit ook seker nie te veel gevra nie. En die man is regtig 'n vangs, as sy nou eerlik wil wees.

Terwyl haar beroepslewe as argitek ook 'n onverwagte trap of twee styg en sy daarmee probeer tred hou, doem ander komplikasies op: haar ewig onvergenoegde ma, haar immer swerwende pa, ongeoorloofde affairs begin aan die orde van die dag lyk, 'n ramparty haak ampertjies uit en 'n naweek in die Bosveld het rampspoedige gevolge.

As daar ooit 'n moontlikheid was dat Vida se beste vriend eintlik die liefde van haar lewe is, is dit nou te laat. Die strykkwartet speel al die troumars, letterlik. En Vida se sin vir humor is meestal al wat haar staande hou.
