A biography of Scotsman James Douglas Logan, who founded and developed the Karoo town of Matjiesfontein into a renowned health resort. The book is also a sports history: Logan, who immigrated to South Africa in 1877, developed the game of cricket in South Africa.

Foreword by André Odendaal, CEO of Western Province Cricket Association and Honorary Professor in History and Heritage Studies at the University of the Western Cape.

"Dean Allen's book is an example of original biographical history at its best. He has used extensive archival material from South Africa and the UK - some of which he accessed for the very first time - in order to explore the important themes of sport, politics, and power during a key period of South African and British Imperial history. He cleverly relates James Logan's love of cricket and his personal career to the wider processes of colonialism." Jennifer Hargreaves, Consultant and Visiting Professor of Sports Sociology, University of Brighton

"It is more than just a sports history and also more than just a political history. Its strength is in the way it melds the two to provide new perspective on a turbulent South African past." Albert Grundlingh, Chair of History Department, Stellenbosch University

Charles Etienne Boniface was born in Paris in 1787. His family fled the country when he was twelve. He ended up in the Cape Colony in 1807 and became a leading figure in the cultural life of Cape Town. In 1829 the French ship, the Eole, was wrecked on the Wild Coast, near present-day East London. Boniface met the eight survivors when they arrived in Cape Town and offered to write their story. His book recounts their experiences of the shipwreck, the 150 km they walked in 6½ days, barefoot and injured, and their contact with the Xhosa peoples, and ends with their departure from Cape Town five months later.

210 pp., illus., hardback, d.w., Oxford, 2012. R360
Kenneth S.Broun recreates the Rivonia Trial using interviews with many of those involved in the case and portions of the trial manuscript, and demonstrates how "outstanding and courageous advocacy, combined with widespread international support", saved Nelson Mandela and his fellow activists from the death penalty.

"For more than twenty-five years, scholar and teacher Kenneth Broun has worked with black lawyers and law students in apartheid-era South Africa. In this magnificent book, he draws on his experience and expertise to bring to life the events and personalities of the 1963-64 Rivonia Trial. A turning point in world history, the trial was intended to punish and to deter, as well as to put an end to Nelson Mandela and his comrades. In fact, Rivonia showed to the world how corrupt and vulnerable the apartheid system really was. Meticulously documented and dramatically narrated, Broun's book makes a unique contribution to our understanding of South Africa and the struggle for human rights." human rights lawyer, Michael E.Tigar, Emeritus Professor, Washington College of Law and Duke Law School

"Kenneth Broun does justice to one of the most celebrated political trials of the 20th century. He brings the full weight of his own long career to bear, as a legal academic and trial lawyer who has had a decades-long engagement with the South African legal system. The result is not only a gripping story but a work of profound scholarship, sensitivity and empathy." Mark Gevisser, author of "Thabo Mbeki, a dream deferred".

Kenneth Broun is the Henry Brandis Professor of Law Emeritus at the University of North Carolina School of Law. Since 1986 he has travelled regularly to South Africa to teach trial advocacy in programs sponsored by the Black Lawyers Association of South Africa.

204pp., paperback, First SA Edition, Johannesburg, 2016. R250
First published in the UK and USA.

Julian Brown challenges the understanding that the Soweto Uprising arose out of a period of political quiescence by examining the emergence of new forms of politics, ideology and public protest in the decade before 1976.

"throws new light on the background to the Soweto Uprising, providing insight into white and black student politics, worker protest and broader dissent." William Beinart, University of Oxford

"an extremely important contribution to the historiography on protest in South Africa. It links black and white student protests (too often studied in isolation from one another) to workers' movements by looking at the changing forms of protest during the 1960s and 1970s, and the apartheid government's changing responses." Anne Hefferman, University of the Witwatersrand

David Theo Goldberg

"Her study of leaders and rank-and-file activists on Robben Island is splendid, a fscinating depiction of the continuities of the struggle and an inspiring account of how the prisoners strengthened themselves - politically, psychologically and educationally - to challenge the regime.

The story of fifty-seven women and men and fourteen children who, in March 1982, arrived at St George's Cathedral seeking a place where they could pray, fast and seek refuge from the apartheid government, which wanted to deport them to the "homeland" of Transkei. They were living "illegally" on a piece of land on the edge of Old Crosroads in Nyanga township outside Cape Town and hoped through their actions to draw attention to their situation.

In 1955, the Secretary of Native Affairs, Dr W Eiselen, introduced a new policy known as the Coloured Labour Preference Policy, which placed limits on the number of African people who could access jobs, housing, land, education and other social opportunites in the western half of the Cape Province. He drew an imaginary line, known as the Eiselen Line, to separate the western from the eastern half of the Cape Province. As result thousands of African women living in settlements across Cape Town were forcefully removed, either to "resettlement Camps" in the eastern part of the Cape or to "controlled" squatter camps in Nyanga West, now Guguletu.

Connor (T.) CONSERVED SPACES, ANCESTRAL PLACES, conservation, history and identity among farm labourers in the Sundays River Valley, South Africa
212 pp., colour illus., maps, paperback, Pietermaritzburg, 2014. R265
Teresa Connor investigates three hundred years of social conflict over land in the frontier-like Sundays River Valley, an area of multiple displacements and the location of the extended Addo Elephant Park, to see whether residents have really benefited from models of co-mamagement.

"South Africa is famous for its success in conserving wildlife, much of it in world-renowned national parks. Yet protected areas sometimes have to be carved out from settlements, and local communities often bear the costs. This is an outstanding analysis of these dilemmas, which looks in detail at the communities affected by the extension of Addo. In the process, Connor takes her readers into the social world of farmworkers, amongst the least studied and least understood groups in South Africa. This book is simultaneously a major contribution to debates about conservation and a vivid and eye-opening discussion of rural society." William Beinart, African Studies Centre, University of Oxford

Teresa Connor is affiliated with the Fort Hare Institute of Social and Economic Research in the Eastern Cape.

Couper (A.) ALBERT LUTHULI, bound by faith
291 pp., illus., paperback, Pietermaritzburg, 2010. R260
The biography of Albert Luthuli, in which Scott Couper argues that, contrary to contemporary nationalist understanding, Luthuli did not countenance abandoning non-violence in favour of armed struggle in 1961.

"This impassioned and provocative account locates Luthuli as a man of uncompromising Chistian faith and principle who has been woefully - and perhaps wilfully - misinterpreted in ANC historiography. Couper produces a considerable body of fresh evidence to support his view that Luthuli was never persuaded of the moral or strategic imperative to abandon non-violence in favour of the armed struggle. " Saul Dubow, Sussex University

Scott Couper serves the United Congregational Church of Southern Africa as the Development Manager of the Inanda Seminary through the auspices of Global Ministries, United Church of Christ and Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).

190 pp., maps, paperback, Cambridge, 2011. R250
Clifton Crais explores the relationhip between the violence of colonial conquest and the poverty in South Africa's Eastern Cape.

André du Toit, University of Cape Town

"With brisk economy, this book provides a fresh and compelling explanation of the origins of rural poverty in nineteenth-century South Africa. It is indispensable reading for anyone who is seriously interested in understanding the persistence of crushing poverty in the South African countryside today." Ivan Evans, University of California San Diego

Clifton Crais is Professor of History and Director of the Institute of African Studies at Emory University. His other books include "Sara Baartman and the Hottentot Venus" and "White Supremacy and Black Resistance in Pre-Industrial South Africa".

A reconstruction of the life of Sara Baartman, who was displayed in Europe from 1810 to 1815 as the Hottentot Venus.

"In the very act of demonstrating the impossibility of knowing Sara Baartman, the authors of this remarkable book have restored her humanity. This is less a biography than an anti-biography, a searing work of social history that acknowledges the deep silence that surrounds so much of human history. A richly researched and deeply moving work." Laurel Thatcher Ulrich

"Finally, an authoritative account of the mythologized life of Sara Baartman." Zoë Wicomb

99pp., illus., paperback, Johannesburg, 2015. R155
An overview of dagga (marijuana) in South Africa, its origins, background as a legal drug, and its criminalisation.

"In a world stalked by biltong, Hazel Crompton's latest literary cultivation is an enthralling and educative reminder of another enduring South African staple. Her pioneering short exploration of dagga displays a fine eye for telling detail, covers a lot of ground at an enjoyably brisk pace, and satisfies the reader's inquisitiveness in all kinds of knowledgeable as well as unexpected ways. This gem of a book is enough to make you flap your wings." Bill Nasson, Department of History, Stellenbosch University

Hazel Crampton is the author of "The Sunburnt Queen" and "The Side of the Sun at Noon". She is an artist and lives in Grahamstown.

She was found and raised by the local people as one of their own and later married one of the most important tribal chiefs in the area. Her dynasty extends to many of today's Xhosa royal families. Hazel Crampton used oral histories and written accounts by early missionaries and traders who met Bessie's grandchildren to trace the story of Bessie and her descendants throughout the turbulent history of the Eastern Cape until the present day.

"'The Sunburnt Queen' is an extremely valuable adjunct to our understanding of South African history, particularly in its presentation of the oral traditions and viewpoints of the Xhosa nation, and in detailing the courage, hardships and vicissitudes of pioneers and castaways alike." Michael Hurry, The Sunday Independent

Hazel Crampton is also the author of "The Side of the Sun at Noon, a quest" and co-editor of "Into the Hitherto Unknown: Ensign Beutler's expedition to the Eastern Cape, 1752". She currently teaches in the Masters in Creative Writing programme at Rhodes University, Grahamstown.

Desai (A.) & Vahed (G.) MONTY NAICKER, between reason and treason
534 pp., illus., paperback, Pietermaritzburg, 2010. R310
A biography of Dr Gagathura (Monty) Mohambru Naicker, a key political figure in the Natal Indian Congress (NIC) and the Congress Alliance. Dr Naicker was born in Durban in 1910. In 1945 he was elected president of the NIC, a post he held until 1963. In the 1950s he was president of the South African Indian Congress (SAIC). He was one of the accused in the Treason Trial of 1956-1961, although the charges against him were withdrawn in 1958. He was imprisoned several times and between 1956 and 1968 served with banning orders which effectively put an end to his political activities. He died in 1978.

"This book is more than a biography of Monty Naicker. While Monty's sterling contribution is recorded with a sure hand, this is essentially the political history of Indian South Africans in the critical period from the 1940s to the 1970s; more pointedly, it is the history of the Natal Indian Congress, an organisation founded by Mohandas K.Gandhi in 1894 and nurtured into the beginnings of non-racialism during these decades." Fatima Meer

Desai (A.) & Vahed (G.) THE SOUTH AFRICAN GANDHI, stretcher-bearer of Empire
343pp., maps, hardback, d.w., New Delhi, 2016. R250
Published simultaneously in the USA.

In their new book on Gandhi's life and work in South Africa (1893 to 1914) South African academics Ashwin Desai and Goolam Vahed argue that Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was loyal to Empire, expressed disdain for Africans and prejudice towards the Indian indentured.

"This is a big book...a serious challenge to the way we have been taught to think about Gandhi" Arundhati Roy

"The authors...bravely challenge political myth-making on both sides of the Indian Ocean that has sought to canonise Gandhi as a founding father of the struggle for equlity in South Africa" Joseph Lelyveld

"Most arresting perhaps for readers familiar only with the hagiography will be Gandhi's persistent attempts to improve the position of South African Indians by emphasising their superiority to Africans and their reliability as subjects of Empire" Kathryn Tidrick

Dick (A.L.) THE HIDDEN HISTORY OF SOUTH AFRICA'S BOOK AND READING CULTURES,
196 pp., illus., paperback, First S.A.Edition, Pietermaritzburg, 2013. R210
First published in Canada in 2012.

Archie L.Dick examines records from a slave lodge, women's associations, army education units, universities, courts, libraries, prison departments and political groups to uncover the works of fiction and non-fiction, magazines, and newspapers that were read by political activists and prisoners. He also exposes the book and library schemes that elites used to regulate reading.

"This book offers us a fine example of a historian working in an imaginative way to show how, at various junctures in South Africa's past, book and reading cultures have arisen, survived or even thrived despite the ways in which controlling and repressive regimes have sought to destroy or limit the impact of reading and writing for their own purposes. It makes for a delightful book that can be consumed in one sitting or be savoured slowly in half-hour bites." Charles van Onselen, Research Professor in the Faculty of Humanities, University of Pretoria.

Donham (D.L.) VIOLENCE IN A TIME OF LIBERATION, murder and ethnicity at a South African gold mine, 1994
237 pp., illus., paperback, Durham, 2011. R250
Includes photographs by Santu Mofokeng.

Donald Donham reconstructs an incident that occurred at a South African gold mine six weeks after the 1994 elections, when black workers ganged up on the Zulus among them, killing two and injuring many more. He argues that the conflict was not "ethnic", but rather emerged as capitalist managers gave up apartheid tactics and as black union activists adopted strategies that departed from their stated values.

"Taking off from a single episode, Donald L.Donham provides readers with a rich account that makes an important point: ethnic identification is often more the consequence of violence than the cause. Since people involved may, in retrospect, interpret an event using ethnic categories, understanding the complexity of the processes leading up to violence requires peeling away layers of backward projection and reconstructing the flow of events, tasks Donham performs here with sensitivity and insight." Frederick Cooper, author of "Colonialism in Question"

"'Violence in a Time of Liberation' is an absorbing and exceptionally clear-sighted analysis of violence and ethnic consciousness in South Africa. Focused on a specific set of events that occurred at a gold mine in the mid-1990s, Donald L.Donham brings vivid ethnographic description and analysis to bear on some of the thorniest questions faced by social analysts of violence." James Ferguson, author of "Global Shadows"

Donald L.Donham is Professor of Anthropology at the University of California, Davis.

Driver (C.J.) THE MAN WITH THE SUITCASE, the life, execution and rehabilitation of John Harris, liberal terrorist
89pp., illus., paperback, Cape Town, 2015. R
John Harris (4 July 1937–1 April 1965) was detained and banned for his activities as Chairman of SANROC (the South African Non Racial Olympic Committee), which included petitioning the International Olympic Committee in 1964 to have South Africa excluded from the Olympics for fielding a white-only team. He was a member of the anti-apartheid African Resistance Movement (ARM). On 24 July 1964, he informed the Johannesburg Railway Police that a bomb had been planted on a whites-only platform of Johannesburg Park Station. The bomb later exploded, killing a woman and injuring 23 others. Harris, a school teacher, was convicted of murder and hanged in Pretoria Central Prison, aged 27.

Jonty Driver was born in Cape Town in 1939. As a student he served as President of the National Union of South African Students (NUSAS) and spent time in solitary confinement.

Du Bois (D.) SUGAR AND SETTLERS, a history of the Natal South Coast, 1850-1910
405pp., illus., map, paperback, Stellenbosch, 2015. R435
"From a wealth of archival sources, Du Bois eruditely narrates what is arguably the seminal chronicle of the South Coast's development. He comprehensively unravels the kaleidoscope of personalities and unpacks the various interests that impacted on this otherwise parochial backwater. Black Africans, white settlers, Indian labourers competed on the agrarian 'playing field' that was dominated by sugar cultivation." Scott Everett Couper, author of "Albert Luthuli: bound by faith"

"Duncan Du Bois provides a detailed and fascinating history of a hitherto much-neglected part of what was the colony of Natal. Based primarily on original archival research, he traces the southward advance of the white settler frontier and its sugar-based economy from Isipingo to the Mzimkulu river and, without the sugar engine, to the Mtamvuna.

This study highlights challenges faced by settler enterprise which were not unique to that particular region, but crucial in shaping its history. These included rugged geography, slow infrastructural development, insufficient investment capital and a heavy demand for labour to meet the needs of plantation agriculture. The settler economy’s relations with and reliance on indigenous African people and imported Indian workers therefore constitute further important dimensions of the book.

As such it is a valuable addition to the history of white settlement and its impact, both human and environmental, on southern Africa." Bill Guest, Professor Emeritus in Historical Studies, University of KwaZulu-Natal

Duncan Du Bois is also the author of "Labourer or Settler? Colonial Natal's Indian dilemma" (2011).

151 pp., paperback, Johannesburg, 2012. R100
"This book seeks to explain how and why the apartheid government and the ANC both 'discovered' human rights in the mid-1980s. It does so by exploring several rights 'regimes' over two centuries: African nationalist, liberal, and republican. Although fragmented and episodic, these traditions help explain why rights discourse and constitutionalism gained broad acceptance in the last decade of the twentieth century and momentarily aligned South Africa with broader global trends." from the back cover

It describes in great detail the particular traditions and ceremonies before and after hajj that are associated with the Cape Town Muslim community and recalls the particular status that was given to the hajj at the Cape - a status reflected in the hajj's dress and demeanour. The author sketches a vivid picture of the main players in the local hajj industry - the travel agents, the hajj operators and the regulatory bodies - and also dutifully tracks the many changes - cultural, economic and political - that have characterized the Cape hajj experience over the three centuries." Dr Salie Abrahams, Rector, International Peace University South Africa

Ellis (S.) EXTERNAL MISSION, the ANC in exile

"Ellis has produced an excellent, even brilliant book that greatly adds to our knowledge of the ANC." David Welsh, author of "The Rise and Fall of Apartheid"

"Meticulously researched and passionately argued, this book casts valuable new light on the ways that the African National Congress was formed and deformed by its years in exile." Mark Gevisser

Ellis (S.) THIS PRESENT DARKNESS, a history of Nigerian organised crime
313pp., paperback, FIrst SA Edition, Johannesburg, 2016. R250
First published in the UK in 2016.

Stephen Ellis analyses how Nigeria aquired its reputation as an epicentre of organised crime and illicit global trade.

"Stephen Ellis's final book showcases his understanding of this complex, intriguing, exasperating country. Providing forensic - often hilarious - detail about a series of eyewateringly ambitious scams, schemes and stings, Ellis probes the spiritual, cultural and historical impulses which explain why Nigeria became a byword for corruption. He manages to do so without lecturing or berating." Michela Wong, author of "It's Our Turn to Eat"

"This is quite simply a dynamite book, striking for the sheer depth of research and for the way that it is able to fit this material into a bigger picture. It benefits not only from a thorough familiarity with Nigerian history and politics, but also from an awareness especially of the spiritual dimensions of Nigerian life, and the ways in which these feed through into crime as well as virtually every other aspect of Nigerian affairs." Christopher Clapham, University of Cambridge

Stephen Ellis (1953-2015) was Desmond Tutu Professor at the Faculty of Social Sciences at the Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam, and Senior Researcher at the African Studies Centre, Leiden. He is also the author of "External Mission, the ANC in exile" and "Season of Rains, Africa in the World".

437 pp., hardback, d.w., First S.A.Edition, Pietermaritzburg, 2012. R335
First published in the USA.

Richard Elphick explores the pivotal role protestant missionaries and their teachings played in shaping South Africa's history.

"'The Equality of believers' is an original and substantial contribution to the study of the history of Christian missions in southern Africa...The scholarship is impressive and the outcome is persuasive, and the book is undoubtedly the most important contribution to the debate to date." John de Gruchy, University of Cape Town

"Richard Elphick's book tells the engrossing and very tragic tale of how the missions policy of the Afrikaans churches led them to sacrifice their most precious possession, their faith, on the altar of Afrikaner political survival through its instrument, apartheid." Hermann Giliomee, Stellenbosch University

Richard Elphick is Professor of History at Wesleyan University. His other books include "Christianity in South Africa", written with T.R.Davenport, "Democratic Liberalism in South Africa", written with Jeffrey Butler and David Welsh, "Khoikhoi and the Founding of South Africa", and "The Shaping of South African Society, 1652-1820", written with Hermann Giliomee.

A history of the Eoan Group, a cultural organisation for the coloured community of Cape Town founded in District Six in the 1933 by Helen Southern-Holt. The group performed opera, ballet and drama and from the 1950s to the 1970s was very popular, but because of South African's racial policies, could not perform with white opera and ballet companies. The book is based on the Eoan archive housed at the University of Stellenbosch, and extensive interviews with former Eoan members.

"This is an important book that deserves to be on the bookshelf of every South African concerned about the past, present and future of the country. Its value lies not least in the multitude of voices allowed to speak from its pages, but also in that it demonstrates a powerful commitment to human potential beyond political concerns. This oral history project gives us perspectives on nearly eight decades of the Eoan group's existence, and in so doing, lets us relive their passionate struggle through a particularly troubled past in South African history."

A historical exploration of white resistance politics which "seeks to help us understand how non-racialism emerged and the various forms it took in doing so in the 1950s, the decade that forged the ANC in its current form." from the introduction

"This book is a path-breaking study of the emergence of non-racialism, considering a range of strands: some pursuing liberal paths, others working for national liberation or communism. It is a painstaking insight into the Congress Movement and the Communist Party, then operating underground, as well as the Liberal Party, drawing on widespead oral and archival material. This work should be widely disseminated, to both a new generation and many older people who do not know about the little-known factors that contributed to what made their freedom possible.: Raymond Suttner, University of South Africa and author of "The ANC Underground"

Published in the UK and USA in 2014.

A study of the fraught relationships between the leadership of the African National Congress (ANC) and their relatives who ruled apartheid's foremost Bantustan, the Transkei.

"The old Transkei has long been considered a forlorn, barely relevant entity at the margins of South African history, a world of corrupted Bantustan bureaucrats and poor peasants. Tim Gibbs gently upends this myth, persuading us that we cannot understand contemporary South Africa until we come to terms with the importance of its 'hinterland'. This book is bound to make you think about South Africa and the forces that have shaped it in ways you haven't considered before." Jonny Steinberg, Fellow of St Anne's College, Oxford University

"In this boldly revisionist account Tim Gibbs...reconnects South Africa to the study of African nationalism more generally." John Lonsdale, Emeritus Professor of Modern African History, University of Cambridge

This book was first published in the UK and USA in 2000.

A political biography of Alfred Bitini Xuma (1893-1962, president of the African National Congress from 1940 to 1949.

"Before the advent of the giants of recent decades, Alfred B.Xuma was one of the most important leaders of the African National Congress, yet he has never been the subject of a detailed study. Now in a meticulous biography, Steven Gish places him in the context of his times, and reveals his true stature for the first time. His book makes an important contribution to our knowledge both of African nationalism in South Africa and of links between the worlds of black South Africans and African Americans." Christopher Saunders, University of Cape Town

"Dr A.B.Xuma was the most important black South African leader of the generation before Mandela, Tambo, and Sisulu. He also spent many years in the United States and has strong African-American connections. Virtually forgotten on both sides of the Atlantic in recent years, he deserves to be honored and remembered. Steven Gish has done both in this superb biography, which is at once a major contribution to South African and African-American history." George F.Frederickson, Stanford University

In this book Gobodo-Madikizela reflects of these interviews and explores how an apparently ordinary person became a killer.

"Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela has every reason to loathe renowned apartheid death squad chief Eugene de Kock. But in this searching look at him, she gives evidence of an even greater human mystery: the capacity for understanding and compassion." Adam Hochschild, author of "King Leopold's Ghost"

In 1846 Shepstone was appointed Diplomatic Agent to the Native Tribes in Natal, a position that was upgraded to Secretary for Native Affairs in 1853.

"Structuring this book is the argument that, within the course of events being described, African societies were forced to make changes not just in their ways of life, but in the way in which they perceived and organised their worlds - that is, from one in which the objective of life was people, to a world in which the objective of life was things. In as brief and as abstract a formulation, this is, of course, an ambitious claim, but it is an attempt to document and understand this epochal change that underlies the book and the intertwining lives of the real people whose experiences and ideas made up their histories." from pg. 4 of the introduction

Jeff Guy is Emeritus Professor of History at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. His other books include "The Destruction of the Zulu Kingdom" (1994), "The Maphumulo Uprising" (2005) and "Remembering the Rebellion: the Zulu uprising of 1906" (2007).

First published in the USA in 2012.

Thomas Blom explores five decades of ordinary, everyday township life in Chatsworth, a formerly Indian township in Durban, and analyses the uncertainties, dreams and anxieties that have accompanied post-apartheid freedoms.

"With profound insight, Hansen explores the struggles of South African Indians to take possession of their new political and cultural liberty since the end of apartheid. Showing how they are haunted by a past they cannot openly mourn and bereft of the ambiguous certainties once ensured by a racist state, this compelling and highly original book calls on us to rethink the complex challenges that attend the meaning of freedom everywhere." Jean Commaroff, University of Chicago

Thomas Blom is Professor of Anthropology and the Reliance-Dhirubhai Ambani Professor of South Asian Studies at Stanford University.

"This excellent book provides a subtle and convincingly argued analysis of the 'embarrassment' inherent in belonging to a community which was marginal-within-marginal to the South African mainstream. In exploring complicities
and dependencies as well as forms of resistance, and in fusing together issues of politics, popular culture, and religion, it takes a substantial step beyond much of the literature in postapartheid South Africa." Deborah James, London School of Economics and Political Science

Hecht (G.) BEING NUCLEAR, Africans and the global uranium trade
451 pp., illus., paperback, First S.A.Edition, Johannesburg, 2012. R250
First published in the USA in 2012.

"Gabrielle Hecht's 'Being Nuclear' is a monumental new study of the geopolitics of uranium. It profoundly shifts how we think about things marked 'nuclear', underscoring the complex historical and technopolitical work embedded in any use of the term. Beautifully written and meticulously researched — a major contribution." Joseph Masco, University of Chicago

"This impassioned, broad-ranging, and beautifully written book puts the bodies of ordinary people at the very center of a sweeping study of the geopolitics and cultural anxieties that surround all things nuclear. Being Nuclear reorients the study of occupational health by calling attention to vital questions of knowledge production, activism, and governance in a postcolonial world." Steven Epstein, Professor of Sociology and John C. Shaffer Professor in the Humanities, Northwestern University

"Being Nuclear is nothing short of pathbreaking. Hecht's analysis of the techno-politics of African uranium production presents a critical and convincing rethinking of the global nuclear order. This is a very smart book, based on daunting and original research, on a topic of genuine importance." Julie Livingston, Associate Professor of History, Rutgers University

"Being Nuclear" is co-winner of the American Historical Association's 2012 Klein Book Prize in African History.

Gabrielle Hecht is Professor of History at the University of Michigan.

Higgs (C.) CHOCOLATE ISLANDS, cocoa, slavery, and colonial Africa
230 pp., illus., hardback, d.w., Athens, 2012. R295
Catherine Higgs traces Englishman Joseph Burtt's journey through Africa in the first decade of the twentieth century. He was hired by the chocolate firm Cadbury Brothers Ltd to determine if the cocoa it was buying from the Portuguese colonies of São Tomé and Principe had been harvested by slave labourers forcibly recruited from Angola. Between June 1905 and March 1907 Burtt travelled to the islands of São Tomé and Principe, to the Portuguese colonies of Angola and Mozambique, and to the Transvaal colony in British southern Africa. The report he prepared was submitted to the British and Portuguese governments and helped change labour recruiting practices in colonial Africa.

"Like Adam Hochschild's 'King Leopold's Ghost', Catherine Higgs takes us into another 'heart of darkness' of colonial rule. 'Chocolate Islands' is a compelling read [and] raises challenging questions not only about how a business with a humanitarian streak dealt with the use of forced labor in the early twentieth century, but also about the labor practices of businesses in the twenty-first-century world." Robert Edgar, Howard University

"Catherine Higgs writes about the chocolate islands with clarity and conviction, commanding the evidence while presenting an argument about the 'dignity of labor' with an elegance of style. In terms of presentation, research, and structure, the book is a tour de force." David Birmingham

Catherine Higgs is Associate Professor of History at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. She is the author of "The Ghost of Equality: the public lives of D.D.T Jabavu of South Africa, 1885-1959".

"Jeal's wonderful book is filled with anecdotes and brilliant cameos, which keep the narration fresh and sparkingly alive. His treatment of these legendary figures is authoritative and compassionate." Alexander Maitland, Literary Review

"Tim Jeal's achievement in this colourful, fascinating book is to have found letters and previously uncollected papers which refute the accepted story. It may be too late to grant Speke a posthumous knighthood, but it must be heart-warming to his descendants to know the truth." Christopher Hudson, Daily Mail

634 pp., maps, paperback, Johannesburg, 2009. R325
Anthea Jeffery's review of ANC policy and strategy between 1979 and 1994.

"Fifteen years have passed since South Africans were being shot or hacked or burned to death in political conflict; and the memory of the trauma has faded. Some 20 500 people were nevertheless killed between 1984 and 1994. The convetional wisdom is that they died at the hands of a state-backed Third Force, but the more accurate explanation is that they died as a result of the people's war the ANC unleashed." from the back cover

Dr Anthea Jeffery works for the South African Institute of Race Relations. Her other publications include "The Natal Story: sixteen years of conflict" and "The Truth About the Truth Commission".

All the documentary volumes now contain maps and photographs, as well as more comprehensive indexes than those in the original series." from the preface

"[From Protest to Challenge] has acquired a sound scholarly reputation. As a matter of fact, it has recently been stated that the project was 'largely responsible for the creation of the academic field of black resistance politics in South Africa' and that it has established 'the framework for the narration of South African resistance history, with its own chronology, periodization and constitutive codes'" Albert Grundlingh

222 pp., paperback, Cape Town, 2012. R335
David Johnson relates the literatures and histories of the Cape to postcolonial debates about nationalism.

"This is an outstandingly insightful and innovative study. David Johnson single-handedly opens up new research terrains by challenging current orthodoxies about literary and historical representation and he brings the early Cape Colony into the centre of contemporary debates about identity, power and the pervasive presence of inequality in post-apartheid South Africa." Nigel Worden, King George V Professor of History, University of Cape Town

"The excitement of reading this book is in its delivering more than the title indicates. Grounded in meticulous historical research, Johnson's work engages with contemporary debates about the nation, offering the innovative argument that colonial forms of nationhood and nationalism, resisted/ subverted/ even ignored normative concepts developed in the northern hemisphere." Benita Parry, Emerita Professor, University of Warwick

David Johnson is senoir lecturer in English at The Open University. His other writings include the books "Shakespeare and South Africa" (1996) and "Jurisprudence: a South African perspective" (2001).

Originally published in New Zealand in 2016.

"In this new phase of our struggle for democracy and freedom, the voices of giants like Ahmed 'Kathy' Kathrada sound ever more imperatively. This uplifting, charming and delightful book teaches us why we revere Mandela's circle and their commitment to principle, truth and public service. It's a read strongly recommended for this time." Judge Edwin Cameron

"'Conversations with a Gentle Soul' reminds me of the hours spent talking with Tata and Uncle Kathy; both of whom are individually strong personalities with extraordinary humility and a mischievous sense of humour. There are valuable lessons to be learnt from Uncle Kathy who shares his life experiences, many of which shaped the future of South Africa, in an unassuming, sincere and refreshing manner."

Keegan (T.) DR PHILIP'S EMPIRE, one man's struggle for justice in nineteenth-century South Africa
413pp., b/w & colour illus., maps, hardback, d.w., Cape Town , 2016. R350
Tim Keegan documents missionary leader Dr John Philip's encounters with Dutch colonists, English settlers and indigenous South Africans, his battles with his fellow missionaries and the colonial authorities, and his lobbying for indigenous people's civil rights. Keegan discusses Philip's fight for the emancipation of slaves, his attempts to protect the Khoi against injustice and his opposition to the dispossession of the Xhosa in the Eastern Cape.

"With 'Dr Philip's Empire', Tim Keegan has done us a great favour. This exceptionally readable and deeply illuminating story of the fascinating and complex British missionary Dr John Philip is far more than a freshly opened window on the history of the colonial enterprise. It is, in fact, a tantalising microcosm - even a parable - for the early liberal and humanitarian aspirations of empire and the twists and turns of their fall into decay and delusion.
A timely and important book, its cool and judicious historical perspective may also help to educate the present-minded ideological puritans for whom the colonial past is nothing other than the Evil Empire of Cecil John Rhodes." Bill Nasson, author of "The War for South Africa, the Anglo-Boer War, 1899-1902"

Historian and writer Tim Keegan is also the author of "Rural Transformations in Industrialising South Africa", "Colonial South Africa and the Origins of the Racial Order" and "Moravians in the Eastern Cape".

Levine (R.S.) A LIVING MAN FROM AFRICA, Jan Tzatzoe, Xhosa chief and missionary, and the making of nineteenth-century South Africa
291 pp., maps, illus., hardback, d.w., New Haven, 2011. R285
The biography of Jan Tzatzoe who was born into a Xhosa royal family around 1792 in the eastern Cape region. As a missionary, chief, and cultural intermediary on the eastern Cape frontier, and in Cape Town and Great Britain, Tzatzoe interacted with both the African and European worlds. He bore witness to, helped shape and eventually resisted the imposition of a colonial regime in South Africa.

"In this beautifully written story of Jan Tzatzoe, an African chief and British-educated Christian who embodied many of the contradictions of his age, Roger Levine paints a vivd portrait of African-European relations on the South African frontier during its historical transformation in the nineteenth century. Levine shows that on the South African frontier borders were porous, identities were malleable, and religious beliefs were negotiable. Africans were neither total resisters nor total collaborators, but instead negotiated tortuous paths through shifting landscapes." Robert Harms, author of "The Diligent: a voyage through the worlds of the slave trade"

Roger Levine is Associate Professor of History at Sewanee: The University of the South.

189 pp., paperback, Cape Town, 2011. R200
"This is the book that was waiting to be written. There have been many accounts of life in the active struggle against the apartheid regime but this one is a fearless exploration of the deepest ground - the personal moral ambiguity of betrayal under brutal interrogation - actual betrayal of the writer by the most trusted associate and closest friend and the lifetime question of whether one would have betrayed that same friend under such circumstances, oneself. Hugh Lewin is the man to have faced this with the courage of a fine writer. Unforgettable, invaluable in facing now the ambiguities of our present, and future." Nadine Gordimer

After working as a journalist for a while he returned to the service to become Chief of the Clandestine Service.

"What drew me to my active role in the intelligence services had absolutely nothing to do with apartheid or South African politics.

Matisonn (J.) GOD, SPIES AND LIES, finding South Africa's future through its past
448pp., illus., map, paperback, Cape Town, 2015. R305
Political journalist and foreign correspondent John Matisonn's view of present-day South Africa, based in part on discussions he had with important role players during the struggle against apartheid, including Nelson Mandela, Thabo Mbeki, Jacob Zuma, Thomas Sankara, John Vorster, PW Botha, Pik Botha, and many more. The book is also a history of South African newspapers and broadcasting that highlights the contribution made by black editors and journalists. It also includes a tribute to Charles Bloomberg, the investigative reporter on the Sunday Times who was a confidant of Nelson Mandela and who first exposed the operations of the Afrikaner Broederbond.

"'God, Spies and Lies" is a work of mammoth scope and importance. And while it is scholarly, it never reads as an academic work as Matisonn's engaging journalistic style keeps this sprawling, but never messy narrative firmly on course towards where we now find ourselves, carefully linking all the dots along the way. The author is careful to keep himself out of the narrative where it does not require him to be present. This is a work about history, but also of ideas, how these are circulated and controlled. It is one of the most significant books of our time" Marianne Thamm, Daily Maverick

"'God, Spies and Lies' is, above all, a personal journey through recent history from the perspective of journalism, providing an alternative historical narrative that, while often controversial, shows up the shallowness of so many dominant narratives." Terry Bell, Groundup

John Matisonn started out on the Rand Daily Mail, was the Washington correspondent for a number of South African newspapers, head of the SABC's election coverage in 1994, and a councillor on the newly-formed Independent Broadcast Authority (IBA). He co-founded the Public Broadcasting Initiative, and from 2002 to 2004 was editorial director of the South African edition of THISDAY newspaper. In 2005 he was sent by the United Nations to chair the Electoral Media Commission in Afghanistan, and worked in the country until 2010.

How this changed the whole course of South African - and to no small extent world - history is the enthralling story told by Martin Meredith" Geoffrey Wheatcroft, The Spectator

MIller (J.) AN AFRICAN VOLK, the apartheid regime and its search for survival
439pp., illus., hardback, d.w., New York, 2016. R725
"This finely realized study of apartheid statecraft considerably deepens our understanding of the regional dynamics of South African power in the 1970s. Miller's astute analysis of Pretoria's realpolitik shows the ambitions and limits of political reforms in the era prior to the revival of mass resistance in the 1980s." Saul Dubow, author of "Apartheid, 1948-1994"

"This book is an exceptionally lucid, bold, and incisive study of the foreign policy of John Vorster. It shows vividly how after some enterprising attempts to engage African leaders, Vorster intervened in Angola in 1975, seeking to secure Afrikaner survival in terms that made the attainment of that goal impossible, and leaving him a tragic figure." Hermann Giliomee, author of "The Last Afrikaner Leaders: a supreme test of power"

"A long overdue look at the perceptions, ideology, and foreign policy of South Africa's apartheid regime during the 1970s, Miller's account is a challenge to conventional wisdom about the Cold War in Southern Africa and a significant contribution to the history of South Africa during a critical decade." Odd Arne Westad, Harvard University

"Miller's patient and careful reading of declassified South African documents tells us something new about apartheid and its relations to the countries north of the Limpopo. In the twenty years before 1994, the apartheid regime struggled, sometimes by encouraging considerable violence and sometimes at odds with the South African military, to locate and legitimate white-ruled South Africa in an anti-imperialist world of new nations." Luise White, author of "Unpopular Sovereignty, Rhodesian independence and African decolonization"

"Millers book offers fascinating insights into the internal struggles of the apartheid regime as it tried to project its legitimacy and ensure its survival in the post-colonial, Cold War world. In this meticulously researched account, the author reveals the ways in which apartheid's ideologues appropriated language used against apartheid in an attempt to strengthen it, emphasizing the Africanness of the volk in an era of nationalism and decolonization, the nation-building claims of separate development, and the anti-communist consensus that bound White South Africa to the West." `Elizabeth Schmidt, Loyola University, Maryland

"Hlonipha Mokoena's groundbreaking book on Fuze, written with incisive clarity and penetration, examines material from the vernacular press which has hardly been taken into consideration in the study of South African literature. This is a must-read for anyone interested in the turbulent colonial history of Natal and the emergence of black intellectuals in South Africa."

Moloi (T.) PLACE OF THORNS, black political protest in Kroonstad from 1976
217pp., illus., paperback, Johannesburg, 2015. R320
"Given that the most convulsive upheaval from the mid-1970s through the 1980s and 1990s took place in the main metropolitan areas, historians and social scientists have tended to ignore smaller towns. By examining Kroonstad, Moloi reveals that the pattern of urban black political protest and resistance in the latter half of the twentieth century is considerably more layered than an earlier historiography has suggested." Hilary Sapire, Professor of Imperial and Southern African History, Birbeck College, University of London

"I was born and raised in Kroonstad, a Free State town known for its famous sons and daughters such as Gabriel Setiloane, Pallo Jordan, Ivy Matsepe, Mosioua Lekota and Antjie Krog. This important book tells us about the other heroes and heroines of the town who didn't find the limelight, but fought a hard struggle for dignity, justice and freedom over generations. This lesser part of my hometown's history has cried out to be documented for a long time, and now it is done in an authoritative, engaging way." Max du Preez

"In the dark days of the early seventies, when the news filtered through to Robben Island of a campaign to release political prisoners, waged by a small group of left-leaning, white students, it buoyed our spirits immensely. This book provides invaluable and illuminating insights into how the next generation of activists took up the struggle against apartheid under very difficult conditions, a story that has not often been told." Ahmed Kathrada, Rivonia trialist and Robben Island prisoner

"A much-needed and engrossing personal account of the embryonic student and black trade union movements of the early seventies, and how this younger generation of activists, both black and white, battled to wage struggle at a time when apartheid was at its height, and the liberation movements at their weakest. Through their actions, the radicalism of this generation defined a new politics of opposition." Barbara Hogan, former Minister of Health and Minister of Public Enterprises

"Fascinating and important insight into the emergence of a brave young radicalism of the early 1970s embracing white campuses, Black Consciousness and trade unionism which raised questions and challenges not only for the apartheid-capitalist nexus but also for the mainstream liberation movement."

Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory and Commemoration Project A PRISONER IN THE GARDEN, opening Nelson Mandela's prison archive
209 pp., b/w & colour illus., paperback, New Edition, Johannesburg, (2005) 2013. R190
Forward by Nelson Mandela.

Introduction by John Samuel.

Nelson Mandela launched the "Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory and Commemoration Project" in 2004 with the aim of opening his prison archive, systematically releasing their contents into the public domain. The project was launched with an exhibition titled "466/64: A Prisoner Working in the Garden", a collaboration with the National Archive that displayed a selection of documents from the official archive, along with elements of the Prison Archive from other sources. This book builds on that exhibition.

"Anyone who has explored the world of archives will know that it is a treasure house, one that is full of surprises, crossing paths, dead ends, painful reminders and unanswered questions. Very often, the memories contained in archives diverge from the memories people carry with them. That is it's challenge. And it's fascination. Engagement with archives offers both joy and pain." Nelson Mandela, from his introduction.

239 pp., illus., paperback, First S.A.Edition, Pietermaritzburg, 2014. R250
First published in the USA in 2013.

Pamela Reynolds "combines a study of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC)'s findings on the stand taken by South African youth with extended fieldwork undertaken with 14 young men who, starting in their schooldays, were involved in the struggle in a small town in the Western Cape...the book describes, from the perspective of the young fighters themselves, the tactics that young local leaders used and how the state retaliated, young peoples' experiences of pain and loss, the effect on fighters of the extensive use of informers by the state as a weapon of war, and the search for an ethic of survival." from the back cover

"This devastating yet methodologically restrained account of recollection elicited from black South Africans tortured as children or youth under apartheid, and of the failures of the restitution that followed, achieves an exceptional precision of attention and thought. Reynolds reconceives the task of the scholar in relation to government and to the long-term consequences of harm done, and offers powerful reflections on friendship and betrayal, on norms and ethics, and on struggle, its neutralization, and the question of a contemporary politics."

Margo and Martin Russell explore ethnic relations in the Ghanzi district in Botswana, between the white Afrikaans-speaking cattle pastoralists , the hunting and gathering Bushmen, the Kgalagari, the Batawana, and various other groups.

"Most studies of blacks and white have been of rich whites and poor blacks, or powerful whites and powerless blacks. This is the colonial hertiage. Even where white have been deprived of political power they have generally retained sufficient economic influence to make formal loss of political power unimportant, at least in the short run. The Afrikaans settlement in the western Kalahari represents a white group who have been neither a colonial nor an economic power. Politically, socially and economically unimportant, they have also been isolated from fellow Afrikaners and the events which have given Afrikanerdom much of its distinctive cast." from chapter 1

298pp., paperback, Trenton etc, 2017. R595
John Saul discusses both the struggle for liberation from racial oppression in southern Africa between 1960 and 1994 and the world-wide mobilization of support for this struggle, focusing especially on movements in Canada and the United States.

“Solidarity is the soul of the workers’ movement. This is a book about one of history’s greatest international solidarity movements: the anti-apartheid movement and that in support of the southern African liberation struggles more generally. It provides an inspiring and incisive account that raises sharply the question of what could have been had our revolution not lost its way by succumbing to neo-liberalism’s false hopes and dead-end solutions.” Trevor Ngwane, South African activist and writer

“John Saul offers far more than a comprehensive analysis of the historical development of Southern African solidarity movements in North America. He issues a call for an emancipatory politics and practice that locates battles for liberation in a larger context and in relationship to each other. He also challenges us to demystify the national liberation movements many of us worshiped in order to see not only their strengths and weaknesses, but in order to understand the forces that have ground many of them to a halt. What an outstanding piece of writing!” Bill Fletcher, Jr., former President of TransAfrica Forum

John Saul an activist in Canada and in southern Africa since the 1960s, has taught at York University in Canada, the University of Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, the University of Eduardo Mondlane in Mozambique, and the University of the Witwatersrand in South Africa.

158pp., illus., paperback, Basel, 2015. R125
This study examines social dynamics in two formerly white neighbourhoods in Johannesburg.

"A significant contribution to our understanding of how different 'communities' at local level have reconfigured their relationships and social, political and economic interests in South Africa since 1994...Focusing on civil society institutions, schools and religious institutions, the author is able to access the potential for the development of new forms of social capital, and shows just how difficult this is in the context of the legacies of apartheid racialised spatial and social arrangements. She shows how race continues to trump class and that organisations tend to reflect 'old order' arragements of exclusion, but these are highly contested." Sheila Meintjies, University of the Witwaterarand

Ursula Scheidegger is a researcher at the University of the Witwatersrand and a consultant to different non-governmental organisations.

376 pp., b/w & colour illus., paperback, Johannesburg, 2012. R260
Willem Steenkamp's history of the South African infantryman grew out of his fascination with the question of what motivated the small multiracial force of Cape-born soldiers to offer such fierce resistance at the Battle of Blaauwberg in 1806.

"This book is about the genesis of the South African foot soldier of today - that small, usually dirty, frequently over-tired and often hungry figure - without whom an army cannot ring the gong of victory. He did not spring up full-grown out of the ground. He grew to what he is today through an evolutionary process that took several centuries."

Peter Edwards, Rochampton University, London

"The range of resources drawn upon is remarkable, the reading very wide, and the use of novel archival sources notable. This is clearly the product of many years of intimate work. Most excitingly, it draws on a number of disciplines, including ecology and literary criticism, to extend beyond a narrower historiography in several ways.'Riding High' is extremely welcome, innovative and persuasive; in short, 'underground' or 'subaltern' history of a high order."

Vahed (G.) & Waetjen (T.) SCHOOLING MUSLIMS IN NATAL, identity, state and the Orient Islamic Educational Institute
457pp., illus., maps, paperback, Pietermaritzburg, 2015. R475
A history of the Orient Islamic Educational Institute, founded in 1943, and their Orient Islamic School in Durban.

"This engrossing account of the vision and history of the Orient School in KwaZulu-Natal is illuminated by deep research and intimate experience. The book illustrates the role of education in shaping new communities out of the divisions of colonial, apartheid and post-apartheid South Africa. Vahed and Waetjen show how the Orient enabled Muslims to envision a new future around notions of resistance, collective action and a religious modernity. This is a much-needed contribution to the scholarship on education, Islam and the shaping of identity in South Africa." Gabeba Baderoon, Co-Director of the African Feminist Initiative at Pennsylvania State University and Extraordinary Professor of English at Stellenbosch University

"Goolam Vahed and Thembisa Waetjen have given us a lucid and penetrating account of schooling Muslims in KwaZulu-Natal. It links an Indian Muslim schooling tradition to broader educational movements in public life, to local and global trends, all within a clearly articulated political context. Every page and chapter brims with insights and detailed information on the story of Indians and Muslims as they navigated identity, racial politics, Islamic modernity and post-apartheid education politics. Even though the book focuses on one schooling tradition, it sheds light on other initiatives among Muslims, Indians and peoples in general in South Africa. This volume sets up a high bar, and invites scholars and academics to tell the many untold stories of education in South Africa" Abdulkader Tayob, Professor of Religious Studies and NRF Chair of Islam, African Publics and Religious Values, Unniversity of Cape Town

In 1815, a farmer from the eastern border of the Cape Colony, Frederik Bezuidenhout, was shot dead by soldiers when he resisted arrest. One of Bezuidenhout's brothers, Hans Bezuidenhout, and a neighbour, Hendrik Prinsloo, organised an uprising against the British, whom they believed to be hostile towards the Afrikaner farmers. On 18th November 1815, a commando of rebels met an armed force from magistrate Jacob Cuyler, the military commander on the eastern frontier, at Slagtersnek. Negotiations failed and the majority of the rebels left without incident. However, some of the leaders, among them Hans Bezuidenhout, refused to turn themselves over to the British authorities. On 29th November 1815, they were attacked by colonial troops. All but Bezuidenhout surrendered. Hans died while resisting arrest. The rebels were charged at Uitenhage. Some were cleared, others imprisoned or banished. Six were sentenced to death but one of these was pardoned. On 9th March 1816 the remaining five were hanged in public at Van Aardtspos.

van Onselen (C.) MASKED RAIDERS, Irish banditry in southern Africa 1880-1899
292 pp., maps, illus., paperback, Cape Town, 2010. OUT OF PRINT
Award-winning social historian Charles van Onselen tells the story of the criminal "Irish Brigade", a group of soldiers based at Fort Napier in Pietermaritzburg in the late nineteenth century, who deserted and embarked on a spree of bank, safe and highway robberies.

"Van Onselen's gripping tale is as audacious as its subjects. At one level this is a fast-moving story of a group of hybrid Irish bandits rampaging through the social and economic landscape of the early years of South Africa's industrial revolution and moving between continents when the going gets tough. But it's more subversive than that. In between the bank robberies, the defiant prison escapes and the cat-and-mouse games with the political authorities, Van Onselen presents a radical reinterpretation of the mineral revolution, of the Jameson Raid, of South African and Irish nationalisms, and much more besides." Megan Vaughan, University of Cambridge

"Readers of Charles van Onselen's earlier work will not be disappointed: resonant prose and pacey narrative belie tight organisation and arresting analysis. As ever, there's a bellicose moral intelligence driving the argument. Van Onselen's flawed protagonists are truly charismatic adversaries of global injustice." Tom Lodge, University of Limerick

Charles van Onselen is the author of "New Babylon", "New Nineveh", "The Seed is Mine" and "The Fox and the Flies". He is currently Research Professor in the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Pretoria.

van Vuuren (H.) APARTHEID, GUNS AND MONEY, a tale of profit
611pp., paperback, Johannesburg, 2017. R280
Research by Michael Marchant, with Anine Kriegler and Murray Hunter.

“This important book seeks to uncover one of the key secrets of the last decades of the apartheid era, how the National Party government sought to defeat the international arms embargo. It serves as a timely reminder that the founding values of our new Constitution, that government be accountable, responsive and open, were a rejection of the clandestine and authoritarian apartheid government, and are key to building a democracy that serves the people.” Justice Kate O’Regan, former judge of the Constitutional Court of South Africa

“By the time you get to the last page of Hennie van Vuuren's excellent new book, you will hopefully understand why South Africans have such little appetite for the past. For, as van Vuuren shows in this passionate and meticulously researched book, ours is an indigested and perhaps indigestible history; that is, we have yet to tuck into the history of endemic corruption and economic crimes at the heart of apartheid and its nonracial successor...In 'Apartheid Guns and Money', van Vuuren and his team of researchers have written a book that, in typical South African fashion, will make for both depressing and hopeful reading: depressing because of the brilliant ways in which the book lays bare the scope and scale of the economic crimes at the heart of apartheid (which van Vuuren rightly describes as a criminal economy); hopeful because, as van Vuuren shows so well, the struggle against corruption is indeed a human rights struggle and that, as we know from South Africa’s own history, can be won. But it must be fought for.” Jacob Dlamini, author of "Askari" and Asociate Professor of History, Princeton University

“In this brilliant, revelatory book van Vuuren forensically reveals the systemic corruption of apartheid and the collusion between the state, local and foreign businesses and government at its core. This dark chapter in our history is essential to understand and progress beyond the current spiral of corruption, collusion and state capture that bedevils our young democracy. It lays bare the roots of the criminality at the heart of our politics and business, explaining how events ranging from the arms deal, Marikana and the Gupta phenomenon are possible, perhaps even inevitable. It illustrates that corruption and deceit know no racial, ideological or national boundaries. It argues compellingly that in our fraught country, and world, democracy demands daily struggle. This is a crucial book at a vital time in our history. It is a must read!” Andrew Feinstein, former ANC MP and author of "The Shadow World"

"When secretive evil deeds are covered in darkness they prosper. From apartheid-era asset stripping they have probably mutated and continue to influence our democratic dispensation. This work shines a light, revealing many uncomfortable truths. It provides important lessons on unfinished business and the need for us now more than ever to find pathways to integrity. These are essential elements for achieving social justice. " Thuli Madonsela, former Public Protector

Hennie van Vuuren is an activist, writer and Director of Open Secrets, focusing on accountability for economic crimes and human rights violations.

Foreword by Michael Gomez.

Wendy Wilson-Fall examines how and why the descendants of the Malgasy slaves brought to America from the seventeenth to the nineteenth century have maintained an ethnic identity in ways that those from other areas have not.

"This outstanding and original book offers highly significant interventions: it connects Madagascar to the Atlantic world instead of the usual Indian Ocean trade; it broadens our knowledge on points of African originations en route to the United States, and it shows how to use non-archival sources to construct narratives about enslaved people." Toyin Falola, President, African Studies Association, and Jacob and Frances Sanger Mossiker Chair in the Humanities, University of Texas at Austin

"This innovative study marries divergent sources of knowledge - historical documentation from the era of the slave trade and the narratives of remembrance of ancestors from the present - to reveal a compelling story that links Madagascar with colonial North America and the struggle of the descendants of Malagasy immigrants to retain an identity that was endangered through slavery." Paul Lovejoy, Distinguished Research Professor, York University
