Edward Snowden, the man who risked everything to expose the US government's system of mass surveillance, reveals for the first time the story of his life, including how he helped to build that system and what motivated him to try to bring it down.
In 2013, twenty-nine-year-old Edward Snowden shocked the world when he broke with the American intelligence establishment and revealed that the United States government was secretly pursuing the means to collect every single phone call, text message, and email. The result would be an unprecedented system of mass surveillance with the ability to pry into the private lives of every person on earth. Six years later, Snowden reveals for the very first time how he helped to build this system and why he was moved to expose it.

Spanning the bucolic Beltway suburbs of his childhood and the clandestine CIA and NSA postings of his adulthood, Permanent Record is the extraordinary account of a bright young man who grew up online - a man who became a spy, a whistleblower, and, in exile, the Internet's conscience. Written with wit, grace, passion, and unflinching candor, Permanent Record is a crucial memoir of our digital age and destined to be a classic.

Filled with photographs from the family album and 40 years of satire, The Echo of a Noise also features Pieter's Paarlse ouma, his strudel-baking German Oma, his devotion to Sophia Loren, the invention of Evita Bezuidenhout, and the joys and sorrows of a remarkable life.

Pieter Cilliers' Afrikaans autobiography,'n Kas is vir klere, was hailed for its pioneering role in the debate on homosexuality in Afrikaans churches. For many gays, it opened the way to a more honest way of life.

This autobiography, first published in South Africa in 1997, is a heartrending story of a gay pastor's struggle to come to terms with his homosexuality. It was hailed for its pioneering role in the discussion on homosexuality and the church. The many letters he received since then has resulted in a comprehensive update of the original book. In Pilgrim (the translation of the Afrikaans title Soeker) Cilliers challenges the church's attitude towards homosexuals and argues that South Africa's inclusive Constitution has not yet led to an unconditional acceptance of gays. The book is about compelling stories within a greater narrative concerning spirituality and faith.

Like so many other people Cilliers seeks for acceptance as well as for answers to questions on spirituality, faith and religion.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Pieter Cilliers was a minister of the Hervormde Kerk for six years before he became a television presenter and then one of South Africa's most outstanding television producers. He received several awards for programmes such as Carte Blanche, Potpourri and Evita's Funigalore and SigNature. For the past 11 years he is best known for the production of the kykNet programme Kwêla.

Marié Blomerus is ʼn bekroonde digter en skrywer. Haar herinneringe, vlugtige indrukke en woordprentjies vorm ʼn geheel rondom enkele temas: Namibië, die skrywer se aantreklike, eksentrieke familielede en haar jeug - tydstippe in haar lewe, sy dit in Namibië of Johannesburg, Pretoria of die Boland en haar reise in die vreemde. Daar is onweerstaanbare beskrywings van plekke en name, lieflike prosa soos die volgende: “Byna net soos by David Livingstone is verkenning in Schmelen se bloed en hy skaf ʼn poenskop-os, ʼn geweer en ʼn velkaros aan. Sy klere raak deurgedra en hy begin sy klere van velle maak. Die karos gebruik hy bedags as saal vir die os en snags as ʼn kombers.” Daar is fassinerende stukkies geskiedenis, woordbeelde van haar Oupa Suidwes, soos ʼn skraal koning in die veld, haar boheemse tannie Dora, haar mooie ma en ʼn familie wat saamsing en dans en graag lag. Daar is onvergeetlike reisbeskrywings en besinnings. Haar humorsin, nuuskierigheid en talent vir verwondering is tydloos.

In a land where Kings still rule, I am a Princess. You must know me only as Sultana, for I cannot reveal my true name for fear that harm will come to me and my family for what I am about to tell you.

Think of a Saudi Arabian princess and what do you see? A woman glittering with jewels, living a life of unbelievable luxury. She has gold, palaces, swimming-pools, servants, designer dresses galore. But in reality she lives in a gilded cage. She has no freedom, no vote, no control over her own life, no value but as a bearer of sons. Hidden behind the veil, she is a prisoner, her jailers her father, her husband, her sons.

'Sultana' is a member of the Saudi royal family, closely related to the King. For the sake of her daughters, she decided that it was time for a woman in her position to speak out about the reality of life for women in her country, whatever their rank. She tells of her own life, from her turbulent childhood to her arranged marriage - a happy one, until her husband decided to take a second wife - and of the lives of her sisters, her friends and her servants. In contrast to the affection and easy camaraderie amongst the women, she relates a history of appalling oppression against them, everyday occurrences that in any other culture would be seen as shocking human rights violations: forced marriages, servants bullied into sex slavery, summary executions.

Princess is a testimony to a woman of indomitable spirit and great courage. By speaking out, 'Sultana' risked bringing the wrath of the Saudi establishment upon her head and upon the heads of her children. For this reason, she told her story anonymously.

In the international bestseller, Princess: The True Story of Life Behind the Veil in Saudi Arabia, Princess Al-Sa'ud and the acclaimed author Jean Sasson began a remarkable series of books. Now, more than twenty-five years later, this compelling journey continues as we follow the fortunes and the dazzling life of the Princess, her friends and her family. But, of course, there is a less glamorous, much darker side to this engaging series, and in Stepping Out of the Shadows Jean and the Princess focus their attention on how, despite positive news on civil rights reforms, Saudi women still suffer physical and psychological abuse and have little legal protection due to the archaic guardianship laws of the land. So, although this is a kingdom on the threshold of revolutionary change - change spearheaded by the young Saudi Crown Prince who is keen to modernize his country - any thoughts of equal rights and the chance to lead an independent life remain little more than dreams for most Saudi women. Whilst the Princess acknowledges and welcomes the reforms that are on the horizon, through stories of joy and sorrow, we see how she is determined to continue to fight for equal rights for women in this, her beloved kingdom.

Koos Prinsloo, wat in 1994 in die ouderdom van 37 jaar oorlede is, kan met reg as 'n James Dean van die Afrikaanse letterkunde beskou word: 'n ikoniese figuur wat te vinnig, te gevaarlik geleef en te vroeg gesterf het. Byna drie dekades ná die verskyning van sy eerste bundel en vyftien jaar ná sy dood, eggo sy stem steeds oor die grense van sy tyd en oeuvre heen - en dis in hierdie weerklank wat die toneelstuk Prinsloo versus gestalte vind.
Prinsloo versus is nie 'n elegie aan Koos nie, maar die postmoderne vergestalting van 'n persoonlike tragedie, uitgespeel op private en openbare; persoonlike en artistieke slagvelde. Dis 'n veelvlakkige collage oor 'n kunstenaar wie se lewe en werk kwalik met 'n suikerlagie bedek kon word; wat gerebelleer het teen 'n patriargale kultuur en 'n diep weersin in alle vorme van outoriteit getoon het.
Soos 'n briefskrywer in die Burger van 24 Oktober 2003 op die eerste vertoning van die stuk gereageer het: 'Ek kon nie anders as om te dink dat Koos, waar hy ook al is, met 'n sardoniese glimlaggie sit en kyk na dié stuk nie.'

OOR DIE OUTEUR
Adriaan Meyer se Prinsloo Versus is by 2004 se Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees met 'n Jong Kanna vir Beste Prestasie in Studenteteater bekroon. Hy het 'n honneursgraad in Drama van die Universiteit van Stellenbosch en het reeds meer as twaalf verhoogproduksies op sy kerfstok.

* PRE-ORDER YOUR COPY TODAY * Clarkson's Back - and he's really had it this time. From his first job as a travelling sales rep selling Paddington Bears to his latest incarnation as gentleman farmer, Jeremy Clarkson's love of cars has seen him through some deeply trying times. And in a world so persistently infuriating there's sometimes nothing for it but to throw up your hands and ride full-throttle over the speed-bumps. But as Jeremy raced through there was plenty to ponder along the way, including: * Why nothing good has ever been achieved in a meeting * The side effects of muesli * How to navigate London when every single road is being dug up at once * Why we are forced to share the planet with people who read online reviews of dishwashers * And what, exactly, is the point of a driverless car? It's testing stuff, but happily Jeremy's not quite reached the end of his tether yet. Fuelled by hi-octane enthusiasm and irrepressible curiosity, he's put his foot down again. Seatbelts on ...

Regsalmanak: 100 stories uit ons regserfenis is 'n keur uit die rubriek Regsalmanak wat Gustaf Pienaar sedert 2012 op gereelde grondslag vir LitNet lewer. Die 12 hoofstukke se titels is die 12 maande van die jaar, en elke maand het datumverwante verhale, telkens met 'n regsinhoud. Pienaar put uit gepubliseerde hofverslae vir hierdie vermaaklike dog leersame verhale.
Regter Burton Fourie, wat die voorwoord tot die boek skryf, beskryf Regsalmanak as volg: “Vir almal - jonk en oud - behoort hierdie publikasie van groot waarde te wees, veral om die implementering van regsbeginsels op praktiese vlak te ervaar. In hierdie opsig is die skrywer werklik 'n meester. Regsbeginsels word deur die gebruik van keurige Afrikaans verduidelik en toegepas. Daardeur word soms ingewikkelde regsbegrippe vir almal toeganklik gemaak. Derhalwe is die werk 'n hoogs genotvolle reis deur ons regsgeskiedenis.”

Since 8 o'clock today we have been shut away in the ghetto. I live here now. The world is separated from me and I'm separated from the world. Renia is a young girl who dreams of becoming a poet. But Renia is Jewish, she lives in Poland and the year is 1939. When Russia and Germany invade her country, Renia's world shatters. Separated from her mother, her life takes on a new urgency as she flees Przemysl to escape night bombing raids, observes the disappearances of other Jewish families and, finally, witnesses the creation of the ghetto. But alongside the terror of war, there is also great beauty, as she begins to find her voice as a writer and falls in love for the first time.

Written with a clarity and skill that is reminiscent of Anne Frank, Renia's Diary also includes a prologue and epilogue by Renia's sister Elizabeth, as well as an introduction by Deborah E.

Introduction by Deborah Lipstadt, author of Denial
July 15, 1942, Wednesday

Remember this day; remember it well. You will tell generations to come. Since 8 o'clock today we have been shut away in the ghetto. I live here now. The world is separated from me and I'm separated from the world.

Renia is a young girl who dreams of becoming a poet. But Renia is Jewish, she lives in Poland and the year is 1939. When Russia and Germany invade her country, Renia's world shatters. Separated from her mother, her life takes on a new urgency as she flees Przemysl to escape night bombing raids, observes the disappearances of other Jewish families and, finally, witnesses the creation of the ghetto.

But alongside the terror of war, there is also great beauty, as she begins to find her voice as a writer and falls in love for the first time. She and the boy she falls in love with, Zygmunt, share their first kiss a few hours before the Nazis reach her hometown. And it is Zygmunt who writes the final, heartbreaking entry in Renia's diary.

Recently rediscovered after seventy years, Renia's Diary is already being described as a classic of Holocaust literature. Written with a clarity and skill that is reminiscent of Anne Frank, it is an extraordinary testament to both the horrors of war, and to the life that can exist even in the darkest times.

Hierdie publikasie is die sesde in 'n reeks deur die Suid-Afrikaanse Akademie vir Wetenskap en Kuns wat hulde bring aan literêre kunstenaars wat met die Akademie se Hertzogprys bekroon is en wat oor dekades Afrikaans en die Afrikaanse letterkunde met hulle werk verryk het. Hoewel die Hertzogprys met sy meer as 'n eeu lange tradisie binne die bestel van literêre pryse nie die hoogste in geldwaarde is nie, het die verwerwing daarvan 'n besonderse prestigewaarde en is dit vandag 'n vlagskipprys in die Suid-Afrikaanse literêre wêreld. Die reeks sluit publikasies oor Adam Small, P.G .du Plessis, Pieter Fourie, Breyten Breytenbach en andere in.
Reza de Wet: Die dramaturg as dromer bestaan uit twee dele. In Deel I word 'n persoonlike blik op haar lewe en werk gegee deur herinneringe gedeel deur haar Afrikaanse uitgewer (Marietjie Coetsee), haar jarelange regisseur (Marthinus Basson), asook verskeie ander kollegas binne die teaterindustrie. In Deel II dra sewe nuwe akademiese hoofstukke by tot die bestaande korpus navorsing oor een van ons land se belangrikste dramaturge van die 21ste eeu.
