This penetrating, timely portrait of Robert Mugabe is the psychobiography of a man whose once-brilliant career has ruined Zimbabwe and cast shame on the African continent. Heidi Holland's tireless investigation begins with her having dinner with Mugabe, the freedom fighter, and ends in a searching interview with Zimbabwe's president more than 30 years later. The author charts Mugabe's gradual self-destruction, and uncovers the complicity of some of the most respectable international players in the Zimbabwe tragedy.

At the age of 87 Dirk Mudge now publishes his long-awaited autobiography. This remarkable man was involved full time in the politics of South West Africa, and later Namibia, for a period of 33 years. He entered the political arena in 1960 as a member of the Legislative Assembly of the National Party of South West Africa. Mudge describes how he initally supported the ideologies of the national Party, but gradually came to change his views and politics. This inevitably lead to his resignation from the National Party and to the establishment of his own party: The Pepublican Party. He had a personal involvement in the drawing up of the new Constitution of the Republic of Namiba and tries to give answers to questions about why it took Namibia so long to reach independance. He also explains the role South Africa and the international community played in this major event.

Says Dr Piet Croucamp in his preface: 'Mudge's memoir does not relive the past in times of modernity. The reader becomes displaced - in a way - to a familiar but awkward if not painful past. The narrative, conceived in stigma and shame, is presented with a 'respectability' or even bizarre 'reality' which once was 'normal' to some and an abomination to others. Dirk Mudge has made a remarkable contribution with a text which merits both literary and scholarly value. The work was not intended as a comprehensive history of Namibia - it is a memoir about the life and times of Dirk Mudge.'

Dirk Mudge publiseer op 87-jarige ouderdom sy langverwagte outobiografie. Hierdie besonderse man was vir 33 jaar voltyds betrokke by die politiek van Suidwes-Afrika en later Namibië. Hy betree die politiek in 1960 toe hy lid word van die Wetgewende Vergadering onder die Nasionale Party van Suidwes-Afrika. Mudge beskryf hoe hy aanvanklik die beginsels van die Nasionale Party onderskryf het, maar mettertyd tot ander insigte gekom het. Dit het onvermydelik tot sy uittrede uit die Nasionale Party gelei en tot die stigting van sy eie party: die Republikeinse Party. Hy het 'n persoonlike aandeel gehad in die skryf van die nuwe Grondwet vir die Republiek van Namibië en probeer in hierdie boek antwoorde verskaf op vrae soos waarom dit Namibië so lank geneem het om onafhanklikheid te bereik en wat die rol van Suid-Afrika en die internsionale gemeenskap daarin gespeel het.
Dirk Mudge is 'n boer en afgetrede politikus.

"I was 19 years old when I came face to face with Nelson Mandela. He was 60. Until that day I had never heard of him, or his African National Congress. I was his prison warder on Robben Island and he changed my life forever." - Christo Brand

The two of them - one a young white warder, the other serving a life sentence - should have become bitter enemies. Instead they formed an extraordinary friendship through small acts of human kindness. Christo, a gentle young man who valued ordinary decency and courtesy, struck a chord with the wise and resilient freedom fighter.

This bond of trust endured between the two men long after Mandela was freed.

In this book Christo tells, for the first time, the incredible and moving story of their unlikely friendship. He provides rare and personal insights into Mandela's life during his years on Robben Island.

W.A de Klerk was een van die voortreflikste literêre joernaliste in Afrikaans. In Drie swerwers in Suidwes vertel hy die verhaal van 'n reis wat hy en sy reisgenote onderneem het deur Suidwes-Afrika in 1948.

Sy lewendige verteltrant laat dié veelbewoë stuk geskiedenis uit die stof van ou geskrifte opstaan.

Aan die hand van eietydse dokumentasie het Karel Schoeman in hierdie boek die lewe herkonstrueer van sy Suid-Afrikaanse stamvader, die Duitser Hendrik Schoeman uit Sleeswyk-Holstein, wat in 1724 as matroos in diens van die VOC die Kaap bereik het, 'n Prekêre bestaan gemaak het as veeboer in die binneland van Suid-Afrika, en in 1765 in armoede in die huidige Klein-Karoo oorlede is. Soos Schoeman opmerk, is hierdie man in verskeie opsigte geskik om as 'tipiese' stamvader uit die Kompanjiestyd beskou te word.

Die 21-jarige Vanessa Goosen, ʼn finalis in die Mej. S.A.-kompetisie en op die drumpel van ʼn groot deurbraak in haar model-loopbaan, word vasgevang in enige reisiger se ergste nagmerrie. Sy word mislei om boeke waarin 1.7 kilogram heroïen versteek is, vir iemand uit Thailand saam te bring, maar word gearresteer vir dwelmhandel.
Die Thaise owerhede steur hulle min aan haar pleidooie van onskuld, en lê haar die doodsvonnis op. Na appèl word dit verminder na lewenslange tronkstraf in Bangkok se berugte Lard Yao.

Swanger, vreesbevange, desperaat en alleen begin Goosen se reis van sestien jaar agter tralies. Drie jaar later word sy gedwing om afskeid te neem van haar geliefde dogtertjie. Goosen se verhaal vertel van die vreugde en verlies van moederskap in aanhouding, depressie weens langtermyn-aanhouding en die gedwonge skeiding van geliefdes, en haar terugkeer in 2010 na 'n Suid-Afrika wat sy byna nie herken nie.

The first biography of the enigmatic coach who has completely transformed the England rugby team. After Eddie Jones began coaching England's rugby team, they won 22 of their next 23 matches. The side that limped out of the 2015 World Cup was thoroughly revitalised. But who was the unconventional figure responsible for this change of fortune? And, given recent setbacks, will Eddie be able to inspire England to bring their best to the 2019 World Cup? From his school days playing alongside the legendary Ella brothers to his masterminding of Japan's jaw-dropping World Cup victory over South Africa, Eddie Jones has always been a polarising figure, known for his punishing work ethic. Constantly controversial, never complacent, Jones has truly shaken up English rugby. Drawing on over a hundred interviews with former teammates, players, administrators, coaching colleagues and Jones himself, veteran rugby writer Mike Colman brings a rare level of insight to his biography of this singular man.
