"With an astounding grasp of current data on human development, this authoritative book offers a compelling vision for South Africa in the form of scenarios for everything from population growth and non-communicable diseases to climate change and basic education. Breathtaking in scope, 'An Umbrella for the Rainbow Nation' is nevertheless easily accessible to lay reader and expert alike, enabling all of us to breathe and not panic. The challenge implied in this inspiring book is both simple and elusive: to find the leadership in public life to take these evidence-led recommendations and chart a developmental path for all South Africans that enhances the prospects for cohesion, growth and prosperity for all." Jonathan Jansen, Vice-Chancellor, University of the Free State

"This book by Adendorff and Collier provides a practical, easy-to-read framework for thinking about pathways to a set of starkly divergent futures for South Africa 40 years from now. The authors contend that an optimal future, based on sustainable development in an inclusive, prosperous and democratic society is within our reach...The book should be a useful contribution to students of futuristic thinking and scenario planning in South Africa, as it would also offer a reference to policy thinkers in both public and private spheres...This book has turned out to be one of the most fascinating contributions to South African futurist thinking and scenario planning written in recent years." Derrick Swartz, Vice-Chancellor, Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University

"This is a great book in the classic tradition of future scenario planning, with the crucial added benefit of change navigation. I will definitely refer to it in my despatches." Clem Sunter, futurist, scenario planner and author of "21st Century Megatrends"

Alexander (P.), Ceruti (C.), Motseke (K.), Phadi (M.), Wale (K.) CLASS IN SOWETO,
306 pp., paperback, Pietermaritzburg, 2013. R305
A study of social class structure and identity in Soweto, South Africa's biggest black township.

"An exemplary study of social class and its ramifications for the lives of people, this book is an all-too-rare example of sociological research that systematically weaves together quantitative and qualitative data with both macro- and micro-analysis. The result is a complex, multidimensional understanding of how class works. It should be read not only by people specifically interested in the dynamics and dilemmas of contemporary South Africa, but by anyone interested in the problem of class in contemporary South Africa." Erik Olin Wright, Vilas Distinguished Professor of Sociology, University of Wisconsin-Madison

"This research is of a scale, ambition and rigour unusual in South African sociology. The team provides a conceptually innovative analysis of class in Soweto to argue that township residents have multiclass identities, that subjective conceptions of class are shaped by indigenous languages, and that the working class and poor together constitute an internally differentiated proletariat. It is an impressive work that sets a benchmark for further research, nuanced analysis and vigorous debate, not only for South African social science but also for global debates." Karl von Holdt, Director, Society, Work and Developkment Institute, University of the Witwatersrand

Jane Duncan, Highway African Chair of Media and Information Society, Rhodes University

Aliber (M.), Maluleke (T.), Manenzhe (t.), Paradza (G.) & Cousins (B.) LAND REFORM AND LIVELIHOODS, trajectories of change in northern Limpopo Province, South Africa
326 pp., maps, b/w & colour illus., paperback, Cape Town, 2013. R280
An assessment of the performance of land reform in South Africa.

"The authors of 'Land Reform and Livelihoods' draw together an impressive set of sources, including data from their own in-depth fieldwork in 13 land reform projects, contemporary and historical population and agricultural census data, official documents and other studies, to explore the challenges facing farming in this region and the impact of post-1994 land reform policy and implementation on livelihoods in north-central Limpopo province. Given the many challenges facing existing land reform projects, the account is refreshingly energising about the possibilities and opportunities once certain preconceptions about rural aspirations and what constitutes successful farming are set aside and local conditions fully engaged. The analysis is thoughtful, nuanced, and happily free of polemic and stale, formulaic prescriptions. Sometimes inspiring, always interesting and tangibly respectful of the ordinary people at its centre, the study makes an important contribution to the available literature." Cherryl Walker, Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology, Stellenbosch University
Ally (S.) FROM SERVANTS TO WORKERS, South African domestic workers and the democratic state
228 pp., paperback, First S.A.Edition, Pietermaritzburg, 2010. R175
"'From Servants to Workers' explores the paradox of independence: as private domestic workers became recognized in the labor law in the postapartheid state, as their work became 'modernized' to be like other forms of employment, their unions withered. To account for demobilization of a militant group of women, Shireen Ally turns to ethnography and critical feminist theory, unpacking the subjective experience of intimate labor and the discursive construction of the domestic as a victim in need of state protection. Ally's is the finest analysis of the politics of social reproduction, bringing the state back into the study of domestic labor." Eileen Boris, Hull Professor and Chair, Department of Feminist Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara.
This book was first published by Cornell University Press in 2009.

Shireen Ally teaches in the Department of Sociology at the University of the Witwatersrand.

Baderoon (G.) REGARDING MUSLIMS, from slavery to post-apartheid
207 pp., b/w & colour illus., paperback, Johannesburg, 2014. R320
Gabeba Baderoon explores the 350-year archive of images documenting Muslims in South Africa and analyses how these images reveal the contributions Muslims have brought to the South African narratives of colonialism, apartheid and post-apartheid.

"Drawing on the by now extensive scholarship on slavery at the Cape, Gabeba Baderoon guides us through the labyrinth of racial and cultural stereotyping which for centuries minimised Islam and obscured Muslims as actors in South African history. Intellecutally sophisticated in its explorations of material culture, iconography, and of media rhetoric, yet lively in style and engagingly personal in presentation, 'Regarding Muslims' is a welcome contribution to the revisionist project under way in South Africa." J.M.Coetzee

"This is the book we have all been waiting for - Baderoon mainstreams Islam in South African cultural history and produces a dazzling array of re-readings and re-alignments. This deeply original book inserts Islamicate intellectual traditions back into South African public life and makes us re-envision both. Written with the lucidity and imagination of a poet, this book helps us appreciate the multiple inheritances of South Africa and the intellectual riches that result from taking these seriously." Isabel Hofmeyr, Professor of African Literature, University of Witwatersrand and Visiting Global Distinguished Professor, New York University

Poet and academic Gabeba Baderoon is Assistant Professor of Women's Studies and African Studies at Pennsylvania State University and an Extraordinary Professor of English at Stellenbosch University.

Barchiesi (F.) PRECARIOUS LIBERATION, workers, the state and contested social citizenship in postapartheid South Africa
331 pp., maps, paperback, Pietermaritzburg & Albany, 2011. R285
"Franco Barchiese provides a detailed, critical account of how the dicourse and ideology of the postpartheid government cast waged work as a primary source of virtue for social subjects and key to the rights of citizenship, even at a time when employment for the majority of workers is becoming ever more precarious. He adds to this a wonderfully rich ethnographic investigation of workers' views, desires, and fears regarding work, which are complex and at times surprising. Although firmly grounded in South Africa, Barchiesi's analysis is essential for anyone trying to understand and contest the intimate relation between work and governmentality." Michael Hardt, co-author of "Empire", "Multitude: war and democracy in the age of Empire" and "Commonwealth"

"In his 'tour de force', Franco Barchiesi shows how the reduction of citizenship to wage labour, inherited from the struggles against apartheid, has left South Africa's working class defenseless against the neoliberal offensive. Desperation takes over and violence spreads. Capturing disillusionment among subject populations, 'Precarious Liberation' is sure to make waves in the field of South African studies and beyond." Michael Burawoy, author of "The Extended Case Method" and "One Theoretical Tradition"

Franco Barchiesi is Assistant Professor in the Department of African-American and African Studies at Ohio University. He is the co-author of "Rethinking the Labour Movement in the 'New South Africa'".

"'Capital Cities in Africa' constitutes an important contribution to the burgeoning literature on African cities and urbanisation.

228 pp., paperback, Johannesburg, 2009. R189
Kevin Bloom, award-winning journalist and former editor of Maverick and Empire magazines, travels through South Africa meeting victims of violence and discovering whether or not the experience has made them want to leave the country.

This book is shortlisted for the 2010 Alan Paton Award for non-fiction.

"Kevin Bloom is that rare creature - a local journalist who kept his head and a measure of cool objectivity even as South Africa teetered on the brink of madness. His book betrays familiarity with the darkest corners of our collective psyche, but he somehow renders the mess we're in with the lucid detachment of a New Yorker writer. This is a vanishingly rare achievement. Bloom's tales of who we are and how we got here should be read by everyone contemplating the agonsising question that follows: where are we going?" Rian Malan

"Ways of Staying is a remarkable book that should be read by all South Africans. Told with a journalist's eye for the deceptively normal, it is a layered story of love and stubborn allegiance to ideals by the nuanced characters, black and white, who have decided that South Africa is there only home."

515 pp., paperback, Johannesburg, 2011. R320
Susan Booysen explores how the African National Congress has acted since 1994 to continuously regenerate its power and how South African politics is likely to unfold in the years to come.

"Few outsiders have been able to penetrate the complex worls of the ANC in power as Susan Booysen has. This is a superlative and passionate work by a critical observer, researcher, analyst who is miles ahead of the field. The author is that magical fly on the wall and has produced a masterpiece that has educated, beguiled, intrigued and challenged me. I couldn't put the book down and will re-read it again and again." Ronnie Kasrils, former ANC government minister and lifetime ANC/SACP activist and author of "The Unlikely Secret Agent".

"'The ANC and the Regeneration of Political Power' shows the ANC holding onto power by continually reinventing itself. It tells the story of how that process happened and is happening still. Exceedingly well-documented and completely devoid of polemics and hagiography, this book weighs judiciously the credits and debits of the ANC's achievement in maintaining its mass popularity. Booysen's great gift is to offer a point of view seemingly from the inside - without an insider's partisanship." Diana Wylie, Professor of History, African Studies Centre, Boston University

Burawoy (M.) & von Holdt (K.) CONVERSATIONS WITH BOURDIEU, the Johannesburg moment
236 pp., paperback, Johannesburg, 2012. R240
This book grew out of a series of lectures on the French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu that Michael Burawoy gave at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg in 2010. It takes the form of a series of "conversations" between Bordieu and (mostly) Marxist intellectuals and theorists, including Marx, Gramsci, Fanon, Freire, Beauvoir, Mills and Burawoy. Karl von Holt's essays reflect on the significance and relevance of these "conversations" for South Africa and the global South.

"Combines two glorious conversations: one between the incisive but under-criticised Bourdieu and a set of other social theorists, mediated by Michael Burawoy; the second between the global North and South, through Burawoy and Karl von Holdt. Poses a resounding challenge to parochialism and an invitation to further engagement. A triumph!" Jeremy Seekings, University of Cape Town

"Burawoy takes sociological imagination to a new level, shedding light on symbolic domination and social change. Von Holdt's reflections on the Johannesburg moment remind us of what's at stake. Together they give us grounds to imagine that a better world is, indeed, possible. Marxism is invigorated, sociology enriched." Peter Alexander, University of Johannesburg

"Tests Bourdieu against theory and practice - and transcends him. This is innovation in the crucible of southern experience, and will open many critical conversations and new controversies." Sarah Mosoetsa, University of the Witwatersrand

Michael Burawoy teaches sociology at the University of California, Berkeley. His Bourdieu Conversations were presented as lectures while a Mellon Visiting Professor at the University of Witwatersrand, where he is Research Associate at the Society Work and Development Institute (SWOP).

Carneson (L.) RED IN THE RAINBOW, the life and times of Fred and Sarah Carneson
315 pp., illus., paperback, Cape Town, 2010. R220
Fred Carneson (1920-2000) was a leader of the Communist Party of South Africa, a defendant in the Treason Trial and business manager of the left-wing newspaper "New Age". He was detained in 1965 and served a prison sentence for contraventions of the Suppression of Communism Act. After his release in 1972 he left South Africa for Britian.
Sarah Carneson (1916- ), a member of the Communist Party of South Africa and a trade unionist, was banned in 1954 and imprisoned in 1967 for breaching her banning order. Shortly after her release she went into exile.
Fred and Sarah Carneson returned to South Africa in 1991.

"It would have been virtually impossible to sustain an environment of non-racism in South Africa today if there had not been a minority of whites like Fred and Sarah, who visibly diametrically opposed apartheid, who actually lived non-racism and who were persecuted for their pains. It says a great deal about tenacity, perseverance and just plain guts. That is a hell of a legacy." Pallo Jordan

"Lynn Carneson's frank account of her parents and their times reminds us of how countless ordinary South Africans, many black and some white, fought and eventually defeated the apartheid regime. It's a story of perseverance and wry humour, of putting together family lives disrupted over and over again, of passions, foibles, confusions. If South Africa's democratic transition was a 'miracle', then it was this miracle - decades of everyday acts of courage and basic human solidarity." Jeremy Cronin

"No other writer matches his unique knowledge of the global energy industry and Africa's historical, political and economic oil context.

Russell Samolsky, University of California, Santa Barbara

"One rarely comes across work of such intelligence and imagination.

"What does it mean to reverse decades of racial injustice in access to land and productive resources, and to deal with a legacy of concentration and inequality? Can South Africa, which presents itself as the 'development state par excellence', succeed in the transition to more sustainable types of farming and to more localised food systems? The answers provided in this book will be of interest not only to all those interested in the South African experiment, but also to those who, in all regions, are questioning the mainstream agrifood regime and asking how it can be transformed."

192 pp., paperback, Johannesburg, 2013. R320
"For Carli Coetzee, 'accentedness' is a description for actively working towards the ending of apartheid by being aware of the legacies of the past, without attempting to empty out or gloss over the conflicts and violence that may exist under the surface...she argues that difference and disagreement can be forms of activism to bring about social change, inside and outside the teaching environment." from the back cover

"'Accented Futures' provides an analysis of a wide range of texts, including literature, university seminars and art works. The ideas explored are evocative, thought-provoking, expansive and challenging. 'Accent' indexes a nuance, an attitude, a critical reading position, a local orientation - a way of thinking about the complexities of 'home' that South Africans and others will find invaluable." Arlene Archer, Centre for Higher Education, University of Cape Town

"'Accented Futures' is a rare, courageous book that challenges teachers and knowledge-producers of all kinds to consider deeply, and critique, our own practice and context. In activist fashion, it also suggests ways in which we can all begin to do the work needed to respect and pay attention to the diverse and rich epistemologies and accents not only of contemporary South Africa, but Africa at large."

347pp., paperback, First SA Edition, Johannesburg, 2017. R380
First published in the USA in 2016.

"'The Truth about Crime' is replete with original insights. Reflecting on the disproportionate relationship between fear and actual danger in a number of major countries, Jean and John Comaroff explain why criminality, although far from matching many other potential sources of public peril, elicits much more civic outrage. We learn how changes in the meaning of criminality and the nature of crime-and-policing are associated with the recent shift in the relationship between capital, governance, and the state. We also learn how these developments in both the United States and the Republic of South Africa have resulted in steps taken to discipline or control certain groups defined or viewed as threatening. This is a compelling book, a must-read for scholars and laypersons alike." William Julius Wilson, author of "The Truly Disadvantaged"

"The Comaroffs’ constant articulation of sparkling ethnographic vignettes, rich statistical data, and highly imaginative insights makes for a truly effervescent argumentation, creative and, at the same time, thoroughly documented. With this combination they offer a powerful book that newly addresses a theme that is becoming central all over the world: our increasing obsession with (in)security." Peter Geschiere, author of "Witchcraft, Intimacy, and Trust"

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.

Cornell (D.) LAW AND REVOLUTION IN SOUTH AFRICA, uBuntu, dignity and the struggle for constitutional transformation
210 pp., paperback, New York, 2014. R395
A collection of essays on the relationship between law and revolution, focusing on some of the specific issues of transformation in South Africa.

“This book is a rare one–the reflections on philosophy, law, and political theory are profound and moving. Rather than reproduce the multiple stages of debate surrounding transitional justice – reconciliation vs. forgiveness, memory vs. forgetting– the author shifts the question toward what she calls ‘substantive revolution.’ This marks an advance in discussions of reconciliation and political life after massive, sustained spasms of violence. When one adds to that a significant dose of philosophy and critical theory – from Heidegger through contemporary political philosophers – the book takes on a new thread in theorizing transition and gives it real complexity. Substantive revolution is deepened by critical theory, critical theory is deepened by engagement with the concrete work of substantive revolution.”—John Drabinski, Amherst College

“'Law and Revolution in South Africa' continues Drucilla Cornell’s path breaking work on indigenous law formation in post-apartheid South Africa. The essays collected here add to her evolving approach to fundamental ideas of law, politics, and ethics as informing uBuntu, living customary law, and dignity jurisprudence in South Africa. This book bears directly on the vibrant ongoing debate in South Africa about how to restore societal respect for law in light of its gross misappropriation during the many decades of abuse by colonialist and racist control of the country and the accompanying gruesome suppression of the native population. This is a fascinating debate that should be of interest to all those concerned with achieving legitimacy for the institutions and procedures of legality following a transition to constitutional democracy, and especially the extent to which values embedded in customary legal traditions can be used by courts in wrestling with sensitive legal disputes from morally reconstructive perspectives.”—Richard Falk, Princeton University

Crush (J.), Chikanda (A.) & Skinner (C.) eds. MEAN STREETS, migration, xenophobia and informality in South Africa
287pp., paperback, Ontario, Cape Town & Nairobi, 2015. R275

"On the Move: Cameroonian migrants in Durban" by Lodene Willemse
"The 'Malayisha' Industry and the Transnational Movement of Remittances to Zimbabwe" by Vusilizwe Thebe.

"While migrants subjected to violent attacks generally appear as statistics or pathetic victims, the studies in this book show how many navigate a hostile terrain with considerable ingenuity, and are both victims and active agents in their own lives. The work is both empirically rich and analytically rigorous, making it an important addition to existing literature. " Raymond Suttner, author of "Recovering Democracy in South Africa

"'Mean Streets' is a refreshingly rich empirical documentation of the economic prospects and possibilities for South Africa of the creativity and entrepreneurship of international migrants. It is mostly a study of missed opportunities for the South African state and government, who prefer to confront immigrants with legal obstacles and regulatory mechanisms than offer them the police, official and social protection they crave to excel at business. Revised immigration policies with a human rights focus would harness the energies of immigrants as a resource with benefits for both South Africa and its immigrants' countries of origin."

153 pp., paperback, New York, 2002. R265

The resistance spread other communities around South Africa, such as Mpumalanga, Wentworth and Tafelsig, and united in massive anti-government protests at the times of the UN World Conference Against Racism in 2001.

"The greatest crime that has been committed against black South African children has to be that of fathers abandoning their children. In fact, I don't know if a large section of black fathers deserves the honour of being called fathers at all...The determination and strength of black women has never been applauded as it ought to have been. Black mothers have single-handedly raised the black nation."
"Men and women no longer enjoy each other's company for the sake of enjoying it. Relationships nowadays are driven by a 'What can I get out of this relationship?' mentality. They have become transactions disguised as romance."

du Plessis (H.) ed. THE RISE AND DECLINE AND RISE OF CHINA, searching for an organising philosophy
411pp., map, paperback, Johannesburg, 2015. R375
A collection of essays that investigate the rise of China and compare Chinese values and practices with those of sub-Saharan Africa.

"This is an immensely bold and timely effort to demonstrate an African 'writing back' to China, that both proposes an equal relationship between the two continents, and shows how seriously and knowledgeably Africa appreciates China, its history and thought. The question that now arises is whether China can take Africa seriously." Stephen Chan, OBE, School of Oriental & African Studies, University of London

"'The Rise and Decline and Rise of China: Searching for an Organising Philosophy' represents a new and promising approach to Africa/ China relations. What is most impressive is that it is an encounter between African and Chinese thought, but this encounter is not just a set of stale comparisons of philosophical beliefs. This study places the concepts and attitudes in both China and Africa in their socio-political contexts, in an attempt to provide a sophisticated, sensitive, and usable history. This attempt yields dividends, especially for the primary audiences of Africans, as it gives a way of learning from the vast history of Chinese experience without reducing African experience to insignificance or irrelevance (as has happened so often in dialogues between Africa and the West). This book will be of interest to anyone from within Africa interested in engaging with China as a complex and nuanced place, a place of challenges, creativity, and opportunity."

"...tells the tale of how every quest for justice must commence with an individual, sometimes an unlikely 'activist' like Wayne Duvenhage. But as this true tale unfolds we see how unlawful and unjust policies can be challenged by patient popular mobilisation, well-marshalled research, savvy media and use of the courts. Bravely, it is also an account of one of those rare occasions when civil disobedience is justified. These are the keys to a successful and accountable democracy. They are keys that should be held by everyone." Mark Heywood, director of Section27

319 pp., illus., hardback, d.w., London & New York, 2014. R425
Martin Evans argues that live television broadcasting helped to shape and consolidate South Africa's post-apartheid national identity.

"An original exploration of the effects of apartheid South Africa's exclusion from worldwide television events (what I would call 'events envy') and a creative study of the role of live broadcasting in the post-apartheid era." Elihu Katz of the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania and Professor Emeritus, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem

"Martha Evans has written a fascinating, thoroughly readable account of live television coverage of sport, politics and ceremonial occasions on South African television during the most turbulent years of its recent history. Her study of televised sport is a revelation, showing its divisive politics and vulnerability to disruption during apartheid and its momentary power to unite the 'rainbow nation' as a newborn democracy in the 1990s. She carefully brings out the contested meanings of media events, both within South Africa and for the rest of the watching world. An important and original contribution to the study of global media events." Paddy Scannell, Department of Communication Studies, University of Michigan

Martha Evans is a lecturer in Film and Media Studies at the University of Cape Town.

Desmond Tutu

Forde (F.) AN INCONVENIENT YOUTH, Julius Malema and the "new" ANC
274 pp., paperback, Johannesburg, 2011. R155
Fiona Forde's biography of Julius Malema. She traces his life, from his early, poverty-stricken years in Limpopo to his joining the student structures of the ANC in the early 1990s, and his rapid rise through the party's ranks to become the president of the ANC Youth League in 2008. She also situates him within the ANC's history and analyses the sources of his wealth.

"Fiona Forde shows how the oldest modern political organisation in Africa has mutated into a patchwork of unstable, segmented and shifting networks of interests less and less united by principle or ideology and more and more bound by ruthless expediency. Born and raised in poverty, Julius Malema is at once atypical and symptomatic of his times. He embodies both the passions and contradictions of post-struggle politics and the dark and troubling undercurrents of a long South African tradition of lumpen radicalism. Lumpen radicalism is a political tradition of unruliness - and at times resistance - in which fantasies of male power, control and desire have always been deeply entangled with 'war envy' and an almost insatiable appetite for money, luxuries and women." from the foreword by Achille Mbembe.

Fiona Forde is an Irish journalist based in Cape Town.

Friedman (S.) RACE, CLASS AND POWER, Harold Wolpe and the radical critique of apartheid
368pp., paperback, Pietermaritzburg, 2015. R395
An intellectual biography of Harold Wolpe and of South Africa's left in the 1970s. It also assesses the ongoing impact of Wolpe's ideas in the post-apartheid present.

"This book is a significant and provocative intervention in three discussions, namely the evolution of the analysis of South African society and its history; the role of intellectuals and social theory in the liberation struggle, and the place and content of social analysis in developing political strategy, and particularly in elaborating alternatives to the sterile policies of the ANC government. I strongly and forcefully recommend this book." Dan O'Meara, Département de science politique, Université du Québec à Montréal

"Friedman not only shows why Harold Wolpe's writings had such an impact in the 1970s and 1980s; he also argues convincingly that Wolpe's later writings - their call for 'continuous critique' and awareness of a compromised 'transformation' - pose important questions for today's South Africa." Colin Bundy, Honorary Fellow of Green Templeton College, Oxford

Steven Friedman directs the Centre for the Study of Democracy at Rhodes University and the University of Johannesburg.

Habib (A.) SOUTH AFRICA'S SUSPENDED REVOLUTION, hopes and prospects
307 pp., paperback, Johannesburg, 2013. R320
An analysis of political and economic evolution in post-apartheid South Africa.

"Building on a full career of scholarship, fieldwork and public commentary, Adam Habib breaks new ground in our understanding of the complex political, economic and historical forces that will continue to shape the destiny of Africa's most important power for the next decades. 'South Africa's Suspended Revolution' is at once both a rewarding study and a brilliant effort at a systematic conceptualisation in social theory." Achille Mbembe, WISER, University of the Witwatersrand

"'South Africa's Suspended Revolution' is a readable, well-informed and perceptive account of the political economy of contemporary South Africa. Although he is clear-eyed about the inequality and poverty that mar the social terrain and the factionalism, corruption and greed that currently affect elite politics, Habib makes a case for specific forms of political leadership, for an active citizenry and for the possibility of social pacts as paths towards an alternative political agenda. " Colin Bundy, Honorary Fellow, Green College, University of Oxford

"'South Africa's Suspended Revolution' offers a strong perspective...it is impatient and advocates change. However, Habib works hard to achieve a balance and to be fair to the key factors in the South African saga. In spite of its critique, this book is almost surprisingly hopeful." Stephen Chan. Professor of International Relations, SOAS, University of London

Adam Habib is currently Vice-Chancellor and Principal of the University of the Witwatersrand

A collection of essays on the governing of post-apartheid cities.

"This is the most important work yet on cities in post-apartheid South Africa. It does not reduce them to technical problems and their residents to recipients of 'service delivery'. Rather, it sees cities as what they are - political spaces in which some fight for inclusion while others work to exclude them. Its chapters produce detailed accounts of the alliances and conflicts that are generated daily in our cities - they are essential reading for an understanding of urban South Africa today."

Hamilton (L.) ARE SOUTH AFRICANS FREE?,
155 pp., paperback, London, 2014. R255
"Hamilton argues that post-apartheid freedom implies more than liberation from political oppression: it requires effective power. He argues his case with analytical acuity, imagination and rare precision." Saul Dubow, Queen Mary University of London

"Hamilton advances a bold vision of a free South Africa based on more than a liberal constitution and individual rights, and yet also wary of the oppressive hegemony of 'people's power'. His vision is a street-wise, twenty-first century republicanism: tempering the reality that freedom is indivisible and that political community must be defended with the recognition that people are different and that power must be constrained." Laurence Piper, University of the Western Cape

Lawrence Hamilton is Professor of Politics at the University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, and Affiliated Lecturer in Political Theory, Department of Politics and International Studies (POLIS), Cambridge University.

Hansen (T.B.) MELANCHOLIA OF FREEDOM, social life in an Indian township in South African
354 pp., illus., paperback, First S.A.Edition, Johannesburg, 2013. R280
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
Harber (A.) DIEPSLOOT,
231 pp., paperback, Johannesburg, 2011. R200
Journalist Anton Harber spent several months in Diepsloot, an informal settlement north of Johannesburg.

"Most of all, I learned that if you want to understand where this country is headed, you need to listen to the people of Diepsloot. Hear what they are saying. Take note of their hopes and aspirations. You might be surprised" Anton Harber

"'Diepsloot' is the first study of its kind that seeks to understand change as it is lived on the ground, and not as it is talked about in the media and corridors of power. Rich with detail and local colour, it offers a nuanced examination of life as it is lived despite the State with its half-completed police station and the ANC with its internecine warfare." Jacob Dlamini

"Driven by restless curiosity and laced with dry-as-dust humour, 'Diepsloot' is packed with delight." John Perlman

Anton Harber is the Caxton Professor of Journalism at the University of the Witwatersrand. He was a founder and editor of the Mail & Guardian.

"Verne Harris gives us the poetry and music of a new archive, and so many rich arguments for freeing ourselves from constraining shibboleths so that archives may be transformed for justice.

Terry Cooke, from his foreword

"Ray Hartley provides a clear-eyed, richly detailed account of the story so far. The result is a lucid and satisfying overview that will either be new to you or remind you how much you've forgotten. South Africa has a penchant for self-criticism that can border on the melodramatic, so this moderate voice of reason is welcome." David Smith, The Guardian

Harvey (E.) KGALEMA MOTLANTHE, a political biography
420 pp., b/w & colour illus., paperback, Johannesburg, 2012. R280
In 1997 Kgalema Motlanthe succeeded Cyril Ramaphosa as ANC secretary-general. He served as President of South Africa between 25 September 2008 and 9 May 2009 when the ANC National Executive Committee "recalled" Thabo Mbeki.

"How does one retain dignity and social vision within South Africa's soured and smeary liberation movement? Though in some respects an admirer of Motlanthe, the leftist Ebrahim Harvey does not flinch when recalling ideological zig-zags and liabilities - obeisance to the oft-imploding party headquarters, neoliberal economic policy (Gear) and belated support for AIDS medicine - yet in this first comprehensive treatment of a past and probably future president, Harvey achieves the balance, honesty and insight required for such an important political biography." Patrick Bond, Centre for Civil Society, University of KwaZullu-Natal.

"It is no easy matter about the internal politics of the ANC. Nor is it easy to write about so discreet and honourable a man like Kgalema Motlanthe. This book is a major study of both and will be a source of insight for all of us." Professor Ben Turok

Ebrahim Harvey is a political writer and former columnist for the Mail & Guardian.

Healy-Clancy (M.) A WORLD OF THEIR OWN, a history of South African women's education
312 pp., illus., paperback, Pietermaritzburg, 2013. R310
A social history of Inanda Seminary, the oldest extant high school for southern African girls, operating outside of Durban since 1869.

"Megan Healy-Clancy's main characters - missionaries, teachers, head mistresses, pupils, alumni - somehow survive and often thrive in the protected world of Inanda Seminary over a sweeping period of nearly 150 years. She weaves their stories into a commanding portrayal of the imperatives of colonial power, chiefly patriarchy and segregationist supremacy. The highly educated women who emerge from the single Christian girls' school have exerted a disproportionately significant influence on our society, playing their parts as nurses and teachers in earlier years, and as doctors, politicians and other professionals today. While missionary schools all over the country were summarily closed under apartheid in one of the most shocking precursor events to our dire education situation today, Inanda survived to make it's mark on the development and stability of an African middle class. A fascinating piece of work." Belinda Bozzoli, University of the Witwatersrand.

Social historian, Megan Healy-Clancy teaches history, literature and social studies at Harvard University.

"South Africa is a complicated place. Held back by its history, it is challenged to break out of a motionless present to build a brighter future for the generation still to be born.

Hickel (J.) DEMOCRACY AS DEATH, the moral order of anti-liberal politics in South Africa
263pp., illus., map, paperback, Oakland, 2015. R465
Jason Hickel analyses the resistance in rural Zululand to the ANC's liberal democratic platform and demonstrates how it is based on an idealized vision of the rural home and a hierarchical social order.

"With poignant clarity, Hickel tackles a vexing conundrum: liberal democracy's post-apartheid triumph in South Africa triggered a protracted civil war. Hickel's deft ethnography of Zulu resistance to the threat of 'social death' resurrects and vindicates a Boasian focus on culture conceived as the 'internally coherent framework of values and desires' that make political action possible. Hickel's analysis illuminates illiberalism far beyond South Africa as well. This is a brilliant book." Joseph Hellweg, author of "Hunting the Ethical State"

Jason Hickel is Postdoctoral Fellow at the London School of Economics. He is co-editor of the book, "Ekhaya: the politics of home in KwaZulu-Natal".

Paul Holden and Hennie van Vuuren explain the series of inter-related corruption scandals that have come to be known as the Arms Deal, and explore how the cover-up and the continuing corruption take South Africa further and further away from transparent democratic practice.

"This is a very important book that reveals significant new information about the arms deal. The deal was the point at which South Africa lost its moral compass and remains crucial to our politics today. Unless we confront the full truth of the arms deal we will not be able to address the scourge of corruption and cronyism, as well as the lack of real accountability and transparency that blights our democracy. This book is a significant contribution on that quest." Andrew Feinstein author of "After the Party" and "The Shadow World, inside the global arms trade".

Holt-Giménez (E.) & Patel (R.) FOOD REBELLIONS!, crisis and the hunger for justice
260 pp., illus., paperback, Oxford & Cape Town, 2009. R243
"In this very timely book, two of the most prominent critics of the global food system dissect the causes of hunger and the food price crisis, locating them in a political economy of capitalist industrial production dominated by corporations and driven by the search for profits for the few instead of the welfare of the many." Professor of Sociology Walden Bello, University of the Phillippines

"'Food Rebellions!' demonstrates the imperative to protect and enhance the multifaceted knowledge, practices, and lands of sustainable farmers. Contrary to some views, sustainable food systems are most helpful to the poor, especially the rural poor, who suffer the most from the dire social and ecological effects of industrial agriculture. Absent perverse subsidies to agrifood industries, what is good for farmers is also good for eaters and citizens. Holt-Giménez and Patel contribute to an urgent awakening - supported by practical experiments and expert reports - to the necessity and possibility for transforming food systems."

Hook (D.) (POST)APARTHEID CONDITIONS, psychoanalysis and social formation
242 pp., paperback, First S.A.Edition, Cape Town, (2013) 2014. R240
First published in the UK in 2013.

Derek Hook makes use of psychoanalytic and social theory to analyse the psychic life of power in (post)apartheid South Africa: an awareness of how social structure and psychical or affective forces jointly produce material reality.

"The task that Hook accomplishes so impressively in this book [is] to make us look again at apartheid and to look at how it still grips us now as something social, historical, political, and as something psychological, subjective, personal. The book charts a new course for the way we might now grasp '(post)apartheid conditions'" Professor Ian Parker, University of Leicester

"This book is yet another superb and scholarly contribution that consolidates Hook's growing reputation as an international leader in the field of psychosocial studies, and it provides an exemplary case of how one might go about mapping the complex interaction of power, subjectivity and social change in a grounded historical context." Professor Cathy Campbell, London School of Economics

Derek Hook is a Reader in Psychosocial Studies at Birkbeck College, University of London and an Extraordinary Professor of Psychology at the University of Pretoria. He is the author of "Foucault, Psychology and the Analytics of Power" and "A Critical Psychology of the Postcolonial".

Deborah Posel, Professor of Sociology and founding director of the Wits Institute for Social and Economic Research (WISER)

Some of the liveliest academic minds in the country question the passivity of current intellectual discourse and remind us of the important role played by the humanities and social sciences in ending apartheid habits of mind. The authors argue that current problems require similarly adventurous and challenging ideas." Saul Dubow, Professor of History, Sussex University

Kasrils (R.) THE UNLIKELY SECRET AGENT,
183 pp., illus., paperback, Johannesburg, 2010. R180
Ronnie Kasrils' account of his wife Eleanor's arrest by the Security Police in 1963, her detention and interrogation, and her escape from Fort Napier, a mental hospital in Pietermaritzburg where she had been sent for assessment.

"Eleanor Kasrils was catapulted into the politics of the national democratic movement by the terrible events at Sharpville and Langa of March 1960. Because her conscience would not allow her to stand by passively muttering complaints she threw herself heart and soul into the struggle to eradicate racism and apartheid. That commitment led her to being cast in the unlikely roles of burglar, saboteur, underground courier and ultimately that of exile. For twenty-seven years Eleanor and her husband Ronnie were engaged in some of the most clandestine aspects of the struggle for liberation. Leading a life filled with the tensions, anxieties and suspense typical of a spy thriller, Eleanor was still able to run a household and bring up two sons. Perhaps it was precisely her image, belying the work she was engaged in, that made her successful. This slim volume retells the story of one more dimension of our multifaceted liberation struggle that has remained secret until now." Z.Pallo Jordan

"This 'little' book about an 'ordinary' woman with the heart of a lioness confirms the truth that our freedom was not free." Thabo Mbeki

"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."

Kesselring (R.) BODIES OF TRUTH, law, memory, and emancipation in post-apartheid South Africa
256pp., illus., paperback, Stanford, 2017. R495
An account of how apartheid victims deal with the long-term effects of violence, based on research with members of the victim support group Khulumani and critical analysis of legal proceedings related to apartheid-era injury.

"'Bodies of Truth' is essential reading for all those interested in the twenty-year aftermath of the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Kesselring's innovative ethnography with victims seeking redress in the South African and U.S. Courts examines the limits of law and also makes a powerful case for the transformative potential of new forms of shared sociality. The imaginative combination of the anthropology of law and the body to understand the after-effects of violence in people's lives makes this a ground-breaking work." Richard Ashby Wilson, author of "The Politics of Truth and Reconciliation in South Africa"

"Deeply serious and imaginative, 'Bodies of Truth' connects anthropology of law and anthropology of the body. Rita Kesselring reveals that even when much is achieved legally in the struggle for transitional justice, bodily experiences of victimhood continue to haunt the victims, and endemic, systematic violence continues to shape the political sphere long after it has ended. Kesselring presents readers with ways in which liberation from habitual victimhood might be achieved." Paul Connerton, University of Cambridge

Rita Kesselring is Senior Lecturer at the Institute for Social Anthropology at the University of Basel, Switzerland.

Ron Krabill investigates how the American television show "The Cosby Show" became the most popular show in South Africa - among both black and white viewers - at a time when it was illegal to publish images of Nelson Mandela, and offers new insight into the relationship between politics and the media.

"This pathbreaking study of television in Apartheid South Africa is at once a fascinating history and a penetrating exploration of how race, media, and globalization shape politics and culture in sometimes counterintuitive ways. It should change both the way we think about South Africa's past and how we study the political dynamics of media in the present." Sean Jacobs, Graduate Program in International Affairs, The New School

Martin Schõnteich, Open Society Justice Initiative, New York

"By taking a long view of the numbers, and explaining in detail how to understand them, Kriegler and Shaw remind us that South Africa is safer today than it has been for decades. This book is a timely and important overview of what we can learn from crime statistics in South Africa and how to interpret them." Chandre Gould, Institute for Security Studies, Pretoria

"This is a measured, illuminating book that ought to be widely read". Jonny Steinberg, Associate Professor in African Criminology, University of Oxford

Kruger (L.) IMAGINING THE EDGY CITY, writing, performing and building Johannesburg
274 pp., illus., hardback, d.w., New York, 2013. R300
"Loren Kruger makes a compelling interdisciplinary argument for the centrality of performance and spatial practices in the history of Johannesburg. In terms of originality, I know of no other book that displays the stunning synthetic intelligence in 'Imagining the Edgy City'. Readers will get a clear sense of the genealogy of boosterist Johannesburg and its exemplarity in relation to important and ongoing historiographic debates about imperial modernity, apartheid, and globalization." Neville Hoad, author of "African Intimacies: race, homosexuality and globalization"

"'Imagining the Edgy City' deploys theatre, literature, film, art and photography to explore how all kinds of desires are materially etched into the city's fabric in an often uncanny interdependency of the dreamed and the built, and how this reciprocity absorbs a multitude of efforts in all of their unruly contradictions." AbdouMalig Simone, author of "For the City Yet to Come" changing African life in four cities"

"An extraordinary amalgam of histories and geographies, destruction and inspiration, Loren Kruger's outstanding book brings to life South Africa's largest city. 'Imagining the Edgy City' is an indispensable contribution to urban studies that will resonate far beyond Johannesburg." Saskia Sassen, author of "Cities in a World Economy"

"'Imagining the Edgy City' contests two prevailing assumptions in accounts of Johannesburg: that the city's present is discontinuous with its past and that the segregation of its white and black inhabitants dominates every aspect of its evolution. Kruger's study unsettles the eschatology of the rise and fall of apartheid by sketching a chronology of broadly defined 'performances' of power, jurisdiction, sovereignty and their contestation in designated, informal and incidental spaces in the city." Michael Titlestad, author of "Making the Changes: jazz in South African literature and reportage".

Loren Kruger is Professor of Comparative and English Literatures at the University of Chicago, where she also has research affiliations to the Urban Network and the Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture. Her previous books include The Drama of South Africa and Post-Imperial Brecht, which received the Scaglione Prize for Comparative Literary Study awarded by the Modern Language Association.

275 pp., maps, paperback, Johannesburg, 2011. R270

Contributions include:
"People, Place and Politics: an exploration of factors explaining the 2008 anti-foreigner violence in South Africa" by Christine Fauvelle-Aymar and Aurelia Segatti
"Xenophobia's Local Genesis: historical constructions of insiders and the politics of exclusion in Alexandra Township" by Noor Nieftagodien
"Taking Out the Trash? A 'garbage can' model of immigration policing" by Darshan Vigneswaran
"Making the Law; Breaking the Law; Taking the Law Into Our Own Hands: sovereignty and territorial control in three South African settlements" by Tamlyn Monson.

"By placing the demons within both migration and violent citizenship and in a longer historical perspective, this book succeeds in surpassing current interpretations of the 2008 violence against immigrants in the townships as just resulting from xenophobia. The authors masterfully show that the politics of statecraft - notably the African National Congress' (ANC) language of multicultural dominance - inspired a fatal depolitisation of difference. The very coherence of this collection offers a challenging analysis of struggle over belonging and denial of difference that is of much broader relevance than South Africa alone." Peter Geschiere, Department of African Anthropology, University of Amsterdam

Loren Landau is Director of the African Centre for Migration & Society at the University of the Witwatersrand.

211 pp., illus., paperback, Johannesburg, 2013. R250
A analysis of the economic progress that has been made in South Africa since 1994 and a long-term view of South Africa's future prospects.

"My goal in writing this book is to challenge the notion that South Africa is on the verge on collapse and implosion. If one follows the daily headlines and social media, things may not look good. But there is far more to this complicated land than just the headlines...In the country's journey to a better place I do not for one moment believe that we will see the momentous leaps we saw during the 1990s but I do believe that we shall see incremental improvements. In this book I promote the power of incrementalism." from pg. 9

232pp., illus., map, paperback, First SA Edition, Johannesburg, 2015. R140
First published in the USA.

"Christopher Lee has written a delightfully compelling introduction to Frantz Fanon. Well-researched and thoroughly grounded, Lee's study admirably situates Fanon in the broadest historical context, while subtly explaining Fanon's powerful legacy today. This book taught me many things, revealing in intriguing ways the works of a black thinker from Martinique who so passionately embraced the Algerian Revolution, and so ardently desired to be embraced by it." Henry Louis Gates, Harvard University

Christopher Lee is based at the University of theWitwatersrand.
Lee (C.) UNREASONABLE HISTORIES, nativism, multiracial lives, and the genealogical imagination in British Africa

Christopher Lee focuses on the experiences of multiracial Africans in British Central Africa - what is now Malawi, Zimbabwe, and Zambia - from the 1910s to the 1960s.

"'Unreasonable Histories' makes an important intervention in a number of fields: African studies, imperial history, the history of race, and the history of the family. It also invites creative thinking about how to render pasts that unfold at the margins. Conceptually innovative, clearly written, and deeply informed, it is far and away the best work to address Coloured and other multiracial communities in colonial and postcolonial Africa." Clifton Crais, author of "Poverty, war, and Violence in South Africa"

"This is a wonderfully ambitious book that tackles a history that is challenging as a matter of theory, of historiography, of politics, and of the empirical substance of past experience. Christopher J. Lee's book arrives at a critical moment in Africanist scholarship and will become a part of a new historiographical turn." Timothy Burke, author of "Lifebuoy Men, Lux Women: commodification, consumption, and cleanliness in modern Zimbabwe"

Christopher Lee is based at the Wits Institute for Social and Economic Research, University of the Witwatersrand

"A Centenary History of 'Abantu-Batho', the People's Paper", "'Only the Bolder Spirits': politics, racism, solidarity and war in 'Abantu-Batho'", "'They Must Go to the Bantu-Batho': economics and education, religion and gender, love and leisure in the people's paper" and "Assessing the Decline and Legacy of 'Abanu-Batho'" by Peter Limb

"'Abantu-Batho' and the Xhosa Poets" by Jeff Opland
"'Johannesburg in Flames': the 1918 Shilling Campaign, 'Abantu-Batho' and early African nationalism in South Africa" by Paul Landau.

"Once this material is in the public domain, it will be impossible to write about this era of popular politics in South Africa without making reference to 'Abantu-Batho' and the key role it played. The many gems in this book have been uncovered through extraordinary detective work and the wealth of analysis tells a rich tale of the paper. A neglected aspect of South African politics, history and culture, about which many scholars have commented over the years, has at last been addressed." Heather Hughes, University of Lincoln

"A fascinating and very important, pioneering volume. For the first time the story of the 'Abantu-Batho' newspaper is told here, based on a massive amount of research. The scholarship is impeccable. The book not only tells the story of a key newspaper, but also sheds entirely new light on the early history of the ANC and the hitherto largely neglected social, economic and political history of Africans on the Rand. An important, radical voice had been missing: here it is restored." Brian Willan, Rhodes University

Peter Limb is an adjunct associate professor and Africana bibliographer at Michigan State University.

228pp., paperback, Durham & London, 2015. R495
Anne-Maria Makhulu "explores practices of squatting and illegal settlement on the outskirts of Cape Town during and immediately following the end of apartheid." from the back cover

"Anne-Maria Makhulu sketches a moving picture of the often desperate struggles of squatters against the apartheid state in their efforts to make possible some sort of combination of work and family life. She also highlights important shifts and continuities under post-apartheid and the turn to neo-liberal policies. 'Making Freedom' is a major contribution that will impact the historiography of South Africa, urban studies, political economy, and anthropology of the state, market, and violence." Peter Geschiere, author of "Witchcraft, Intimacy, and Trust: Africa in comparison"

"We tend to think of South Africa in terms of its heroic struggles. Anne-Marie Makhulu shows us just how much we can learn by appreciating its quieter and less dramatic subaltern moments. In doing so, she places the expansion of shack settlements in post-apartheid Cape Town within the larger transformation of a global context." Donald Donham, author of "Violence in a Time of Liberation: murder and ethnicity at a South African gold mine"

Mamdani (M.) DEFINE AND RULE, native as political identity, W.E.B. Du Bois lectures
154 pp., paperback, First S.A.Edition, Johannesburg, 2012. R240
First published in the USA in 2012.

A series of lectures by Mahmood Mamdani, in which he focuses on Britain's re-conceptualisation of it's colonial mission in the late nineteenth century. According to Mamdani, this new politics, inspired by Sir Henry Maine, introduced "a new idea of governance, as the definition and management of difference", and drew lines "between settler and native as distinct political identities, and between natives according to tribe. Out of that colonial experience issued a modern language of pluralism and difference." from the inside front cover

"He shows how the colonial past is alive in the present, as popular politics remains fractured by the question of who is a citizen, of who can rightfully belong. With an astute eye cast to the horizon, he demonstrates that the colonial past need not be the straightjacket of our future. In his inimitable way, Mamdani makes our postcolonial predicaments thinkable - and therefore changeable. Original and always provocative, Mamdani gives us the intellectual co-ordinates with which to chart a way toward a truly decolonized future." Suren Pillay, Centre for Humanities Research, University of the Western Cape

"I would like to recommend to you the important observations made by the eminent Ugandan and African intellectual, Mahmood Mamdani, in his book 'Define and Rule'. He argues that what Mwalimu Nyerere stood for gives an eminently practical example of what all of us as Africans should do to bridge the divide between nationalism and Pan-Africanism: that Nyerere taught us to respect and manage our national and regional divides, but also practically to promote the Pan-African objective of the unity of all Africans, at all times avoiding the deadly and false trap, cultivated during the colonial years, that as Africans we are different tribes and races with mutually exclusive interests." Thabo Mbeki

Mahmood Mamdani is Director of Makerere Institute of Social Research at Makerere University and Herbert Lehman Professor of Government at Columbia University.

Mangcu (X.) ed. THE COLOUR OF OUR FUTURE, does race matter in post-apartheid South Africa?
249pp., paperback, Johannesburg, 2015. R320
A collection of essays that "highlight the need for a race-transcendent vision that moves beyond 'the festival of negatives' embodied in concepts such as non-racialism, non-sexism, anti-colonialism and anti-apartheid. Steve Biko's notion of a 'joint culture' is the scaffold on which this vision rests: it recognises that a race-transcendent society can only be built by acknowledging the constituent elements of South Africa's EuroAfrican heritage." from the back cover

"Xolela Mangcu has brought together thinkers in a 'conceptual ground clearing' that stares race legacies square in the face. What he and his contributors acheve in this book is not a synergy so much as an explosion. The chapters will chafe, irritate, delight and illuminate, and we may need to read this book with pauses between chapters. But read it we must." Pumla Dineo Gqola, author of "What is Slavery to Me: postcolonial/ slave memory in post-apartheid South Africa"

"There is no better group of analysts than the contributors in this volume to comment on the life of colour and on the unfinished challenge of unravelling racism in post-apartheid South Africa. Xolela Mangcu's edited collection presents an engaging portrait of our times. Deeply impressive and powerfully argued, it makes a substantial contribution in ongoing debates about the future of non-racialism in this country." Achiile Mbembe, author of "On the Postcolony"

Contributors are: Xolela Mangcu, Nina Jablonski, Lawrence Blum, Steven Friedman, Mark Swilling, Vusi Gumede, Joel Netshitenzhe, Suren Pillay, Crain Soudien and Hlonipha Mokoena.

In this book Emily Margaretten draws on ten years of fieldwork to explore life at Point Place, a condemned, off the grid, five story apartment building in Durban that is home to over a hundred teenagers and young adults.

"An exemplary ethnography of post-apartheid life. Margaretten takes us to a place that few people know even exists: a self-run shelter for homeless young people in Durban. What emerges is a searing portrait of drugs, violence, and AIDS but also of compassion, loyalty, and humanity." Mark Hunter, author of "Love in a Time of AIDS: inequality, gender, and rights in South Africa"

"An important contribution to the anthropology of youth in Africa. Margaretten's rich, experience-near, ethnographic descriptions support a complex analysis of the lives of South African street youth in a context of dramatic inequality. It is nearly impossible to read 'Street Life under a Roof' without feeling a connection with the youth of Point Place and taking a deep interest in their struggles with love, family, and money."

Photojournalist and filmmaker Greg Marinovich's investigation of the killing of 34 miners by police at Marikana in August 2012.

'When the Daily Maverick's Greg Marinovich was interviewed about his stories on the massacre, he was asked what advice he would give to journalists to improve their reporting, and his response was simply to '...go take people's stories'. If journalists are to rise to the task of reflecting accurately the most troubled period in South Africa's post-apartheid history, then journalists should take the advice seriously. If they do not, they will continue to fail South Africa." Jane Duncan, Rhodes University

309 pp., illus., paperback, Durban, 2009. R200
Motivational speaker, writer and businessman Moss Mashamaite's critique of the state of African democracies.

From the first chapter:
"Africa remains the only continent where freedom rings with the wails of women and children, and the sounds of guns looming in the background, a form of musical accompaniment, track-sounds for the next episode of the most watched soapie, Let's call it "The Decline of a Squatter Camp." (If such a thing was ever possible)
Africa is the only continent that is less free after the advent of freedom than it was in the dark ages of blatant suppression and oppression.
Africa is the only continent that is less liberated after liberation has had its day in the sun on our cloud-bare skies than others. For that I cry liquid tears."

Moss Mashamaite is also the author of "The Moving Finger Writes, retelling the untold and the shabbily told story of the last ANC warrior, Jacob Zuma".
Mashamaite (M.) THE MOVING FINGER WRITES, retelling the untold and the shabbily told story of the last ANC warrior, Jacob Zuma
294 pp., illus., paperback, Durban, 2008. R295
In his book Pretoria motivational speaker, writer and businessman Moss Mashamaite claims a political conspiracy against Jacob Zuma and defends him in response to criticisms about polygamy, having sex with an HIV-postive woman, and so on. He outlines Zuma's history and deals with the battle between him and the National Prosecuting Authority.

"To most South Africans, the moving finger has written - that is where Jacob Zuma is concerned, and since there is no retrieval or luring back, and there are no tears that could wash a word that was written or said, I run the risk of spending my literary energy and skill in an act of futility. I intend to give it a shot though, because it is that much important. I pledge my life to purge South Africa and the entire world's collective psyche of that lie. I throw my entire soul into this book, this book becomes me, whatever the consequences. This might be the most important moment of my life and contribution to this generation in this incarnation." Moss Mashamaite, chapter 1

"There are those who would like to shut one eye and look at the world with the other, boogers and all. - Denialists of the smear campaign who see not but a series of meaningless coincidences in the galloping passage of time. Moss is not one of those. He aruges that Jacob Zuma was the subject of a deliberate 'smear' and 'hurt' campaign which was intended to reduce him into a political nonentity come the 52nd National Conference of the ANC. The events of the past five years have put the career and life of Jacob Zuma under a very dim light. That he is still up and smiling is testimony to his indefatigable spirit and larger than life soul. His path to the ANC presidency was lined with thorns and thistles, even landmines. How he has been able to brave it through all that tells the story of a mighty warrior." from the back cover

303 pp., paperback , Pretoria, 2014. R290
Motivational speaker, writer and businessman Moss Mashamaite on why he is excited about Julius Malema's Economic Freedom Front party.

"I wrote this book because I want black people to look at the naked truth about us and our condition, freckled face to freckled face...I also want white people to know that some of us know some things that are not much spoken about and that somehow, having not escaped colonialism, we have escaped coloniality by the grace of God and our ancestors...I would also like the ruling party, the ANC to know what the South African mind is grinding at this moment, educated and uneducated, rich and poor, voting ANC or some other party...In unwinding words, I am simply saying that a lot of black South Africans from all walks of life have given a cheering welcome to Malema's EFF and that is because twenty years is a long time." from pg. 35-36

Moses Mashamaite is also the author of "The Moving Finger Writes, retelling the untold and the shabbily told story of the last ANC warrior, Jacob Zuma". Please note: this author doesn't even write a chapter nine, so there are a number of black pages in the book. "It's an allergy thing I've got. The thing is, I do not do chapter nines. None of my books have chapter nines. You are stuck with me." pg 252 in "The Moving Finger Writes"

"In this book we reflect on what we see as the vegetative state of the ANC. We interpret current events to discern trends that paint a picture of possibilities that might lie ahead...we want to alert South Africans to the dangerous implications for social stability and long-term national prosperity of the ANC's collapse...we also paint what we believe are inspiring signs of a desirable future." Prince Mashele and Mzukisi Qobo, from their introduction

"A high-octane, brutal critique of the ANC's battle to govern South Africa effectively. It shatters myths about our past and provides a timely wake-up call for the future." Mondli Makhanya, City Press

"A very significant book by two young intellectuals associated with the Midrand Group. Mashele and Qobo have dissected the ANC with a skilfully wielded scalpel to create perhaps the most important book yet written on the ANC in power. Its vigorous prose and the erudition of the authors make it a pleasure to read." David Welsh, author of "The Rise and Fall of Apartheid"

Prince Mashele is the Executive Director of the Centre for Politics and Research. He writes for The Sunday Independent newspaper and is also the author of "The Death of our Society".
Mzukisi Qobo teaches in the Department of Political Science at the University of Pretoria and is affiliated to the Centre for the Study of Governance Innovation.
Mashinini (E.) STRIKES HAVE FOLLOWED ME ALL MY LIFE, a South African autobiography
166 pp., illus., paperback, Reprint, Johannesburg, (1989) 2012. R205
A reprint of trade union organiser and gender-rights activist Emma Mashinini's autobiography, with new acknowledgements and a new foreword by Jay Naidoo.

"When the manuscript of this book was put into my hands I began to skim through it. I became totally engrossed and unable to put it down. It is about being a woman. There is no one who will read unmoved the terrible description of how, while in solitary confinement in prison, Emma Mashinini forgot the name of her own daughter. There is no woman who will not feel the pain of that." Sheena Duncan (1923-2010), President of The Black Sash

"I met Emma Mashinini when she was staying in Denmark. She came to us because she had been treated so horribly during her imprisonment; and because she was still suffering from the physical and psychological consequences. In spite of the extremely difficult period that Emma Mashinini had to live through, she still had the strength to show great compassion and humanity towards other people. Her book is saturated with this humanity. It gives a wise and courageous account of her sufferings in jail. Read this book, read how this courageous woman all her life fights for what she feels is right - learn from Emma Mashinini what human dignity means." Dr Inge Kemp Genefke, International Rehabilitation Council for Torture Victims, Denmark

"This book reminds us of a challenge that is often forgotten in the hustle and bustle of the struggle for national liberation: the challenge to men and women involved in the different facets of the liberation struggle to reflect upon our common humanity and to ensure that in 'building tomorrow today' we pay attention to the triple oppression of women. Emma Mashinini has tackled those areas of our lives that we normally obscure for fear of being hurt. She has shared the pain, but it is a pain that is rooted in hope and therefore an experience of libertion, not of hatred. I hope that men and women everywhere will read and listen to Emma Mashinini's words as she confronts her own life. There are no words for this achievement - the discipline of creating space and time in this very repressive, stifling atmosphere." Brigalia Bam, Independent Non-Executive Chairperson and Member of the Audit Committee, AfriCentric Investment Corportation

Emma Mashinini was born in Johannesburg in 1929. At the age of 26 she started work at a clothing factory, was elected as a shop steward and later appointed as a floor supervisor. In 1975 she took up a position as the first General Secretary of the Commercial, Catering and Allied Workers' Union of South Africa (CCAWUSA). She was arrested in 1981 under the Terrorism Act and spent six months in solitary confinement. In 1985, through her role in CCAWUSA, she was involved in the formation of the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU). In 1986 she was appointed head of the Department of Justice and Reconciliation, and later as Deputy Chairperson of the National Manpower Commission and Commissioner for Land Restitution. She lives in Pretoria.

Mathekga (R.) WHEN ZUMA GOES,
227pp., paperback, Cape Town, 2016. R260
Political analyst Ralph Mathekga examines Zuma's leadership and what impact his departure will have on South Africa.

"Ralph Mathekga has become one of South Africa's most respected political analysts because he is obsessed with the future. In this valuable book, Mathekga begins to fill the void at the heart of our political discourse: how do we fix the damage of the Zuma years? The questions are tough and the answers are not easy to find. Mathekga takes a hard look at our past, present and future, and, in his usual, unflinching style, takes our hand and begins to show us the path out of our current quagmire."

"Infiltration and Instigation: how white suburban activists act out left politics on black bodies" by Koketso Moeti
"NGOs" brining false hope and empty promises", Gladys Mpepho, in conversation with Thembini Onceya.

"Non-governmental organisations are often seen as important vehicles of the quest for fairer, more just, societies - they are sometimes said to play a role once expected of political parties and governments. But the claim that NGOs are in the vanguard of the fight for social justice is rarely submitted to critical scrutiny. This book helps to fill that gap. It brings together insights from scholars and activists that deepen our understanding of the ways in which NGOs work and the limits of their social roles. It offers a welcome corrective to those who exaggerate NGO's abilities to fight for change and provides challenging ideas on more effective ways of pursuing social justice. This is an essential book for anyone who wants to understand more about a significant social trend, and for those who are looking for new ideas on how to work for a fairer society." Steven Friedman, Director, Centre for the Study of Democracy, University of Johannesburg

Sally Matthews teaches in the Department of Political and International Studies at Rhodes University.

"This brilliant book takes us on an agonising journey through what it means to engage violence, death, and sexuality in the shadows of African colonialism. Ranging widely across the boundaries of social theory, history, and philosophy, Mbwembe makes a fundamental reassessment of the conditions of possibility for speaking from or about Africa. At the same time, he offers an unflinching study of the political economy of brutality as imaged and objectified by colonialism. It is also a remarkable work of social poetics, filled with insights into the state, the body, and the fetish that could enable Africa to emerge from its role as the darkness in our worlds." Arjun Appadurai, author of "Modernity at Large: cultural dimensions of globalisation"

"In the decade since its publication, 'On the Postcolony' has proven one of the most lastingly provocative and stimulating contributions to the theoretical literature on the postcolonial state in sub-Saharan Africa." Mikael Karlström, Researcher, Department of Anthropology, University of Chicago

Mngxitama (A.) BLACKS CAN'T BE RACIST, New Frank Talk no.3
32 pp., paperback, (Johannesburg), 2009. R20
Andile Mngxitama argues that racism is a concept which seeks to describe and explain how whites have come to oppress blacks and that black people, "by virtue of their historically evolved positionality", can't be racist.

Andile Mngxitama is a doctoral student at the University of the Witwatersrand, an activist in the South African Landless People's Movement and a columnist for City Press. He was National President of the Azanian Students Movement and co-edited the book, "Biko Lives!".
Mngxitama (A.) FROM MBEKI TO ZUMA, what's the difference? New Frank Talk, no.2
16 pp., stapled, (Johannesburg), (2009). R20
Andile Mngxitama rejects the idea that a Zuma presidency signifies a fundamental break with the Mbeki era and the beginning of a new phase in South Africa's democracy more in tune with the needs of the poor.

"Once the residual forces of Mbeki are defeated, the media and intellectual classes dealt with, the sword of the victorious Populist Politician will land on the restless and impatient masses. They still want land, food, jobs, and houses. They don't understand why there are still delays when the enemies of progress have been defeated. Patience would be demanded and brutally enforced. The truth of just how similar Mbeki and Zuma actually are will become apparent"

Andile Mngitama is a doctoral student at the University of the Witwatersrand, an activist in the South African Landless Peoples Movement and a columnist for City Press. He was National President of the Azanian Students Movement. He co-edited the book "Biko Lives! Contesting the legacy of Steve Biko".

Mngxitama (A.) WHY BIKO WOULD NOT VOTE, New Frank Talk no.1
26 pp., paperback, (Johannesburg), (2009). R35
Andile Mngxitama presents an argument for why Stephen Biko would not be voting in the 2009 general election.

"The first part of this three-part discussion touches on Biko's views on liberation, white liberals, what I call (black) socialism, class and simultaneously discuss anti-racism and anti-racialism as postulated by David Theo Goldberg. The second part concentrates on Azapo - one of the political parties purporting Black Consciousness - and critically exposes its 2009 election manifesto - which is similar to that of the DA: a predominantly white party. Im comparing the Azapo-DA manifestos, focus is given to the respective parties' position on education, crime, corruption and the 'constitutional crisis'. The third section briefly focuses, and posthumously locates Biko in the emergent extra-electoral politics - 'energy points' - expressly embodied, inter alia, by Abahlali baseMjondolo, Anti-privatisation and Anti-eviction campaigns, the Landless People's Movement, Blackwash and NOPE! These initiatives stand for a continual anti-racist and anti-capitalist critique - Biko's passion."

Andile Mngxitama, together with Amanda Alexander & Nigel Gibson, edited "Biko Lives! Contesting the legacies of Steve Biko".

A collection of letters between South African writer Andile Mngxitama and South African playwright Aryan Kaganof, in which they discuss the question of race, written between June 2009 and June 2011.

"The aspect of it that struck me is how you debunk the myth that there can be an articulation between Blackness and White critical meditations in the form of dialogue, let alone solidarity. This for me is a decisive point, which constitutes, among other things, the insurmountable limitation of 'social movement politics'..." Franco Barchiesi, author of "Precarious Liberation, Workers, the State, and Contested Social Citizenship in Postapartheid South Africa"

"There are two dominant and powerful streams of thought: the black man is his penis, the white man his soul and brains.

Drawing on Fanonian insights, Mabogo Percy More invites us to a re-examination of these premises. It's a fantastic invite!" Andile Mngxitama, from his editorial

178 pp., paperback, Johannesburg, 2011. R320

"'Eating from One Pot' tells a tale of fragmentation and resilience, impoverishment and survival, despair and hope. In many ways therefore this book tells the story of post-apartheid South Africa where inequality and dire poverty have blighted the celebratory mood that followed the 1994 democratic breakthrough and dashed the hope for the egalitarian future that so many people fought for. This book is a superb example of the importance of rigorous social science research to understand and unravel the dilemmas of our rapidly changing times."

Murray (M.J,) COMMEMORATING AND FORGETTING, challenges for the new South Africa
305 pp., illus., paperback, Minneapolis, 2013. R440
Martin Murray explores whether post-apartheid South Africa is dealing with the challenge of forging a shared national identity out of its fragmented past, and to what extent the tension between what to remember and what to forget is being resolved. He shows how collective memory is stored in architecture, statuary, monuments and memorials, literature and art, and how these vehicles selectively appropriate, distort, embellish and compress the past.

"Martin Murray has written an important book covering an extremely challenging territory with many details about the sites of reconciliation and remembrance - monuments, memorials, archives, and autobiographies - constructed in post-apartheid South Africa: the country's 'collective memory'". M.Christine Boyer, Princeton University

Martin Murray is Professor of Urban Planning at the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning and Adjunct Professor in the Department of Afroamerican and African Studies at the University of Michigan.
Murray (M.J.) CITY OF EXTREMES, the spatial politics of Johannesburg
470 pp., paperback, Johannesburg, 2011. R320
Martin Murray's critique of urban development in greater Johannesburg since 1994.

"In this meticulously researched account of Johannesburg's sociospatial history, Martin J.Murray gets beneath the surface of the city's chaotic present to discover the inertia of long-term deployments. He finds that ingrained habits of urban planning and real estate entrepreneurship have always been mobilized in the city as twin mechanisms of change and renewal across moments of territorial mutation. This exposes postapartheid transformation as a rearticulation of old orders and habits and makes an important contribution to revising the idea of a decisive historical rupture at the end of apartheid." Lindsay Bremner, Professor of Architecture, Tyler School of Art, Temple University

140 pp., illus., paperback, Reprint, Rochester, (2008) 2013. R290
A re-examination of the history of indirect rule - the British colonial policy of employing indigenous tribal chiefs as political intermediaries - in South Africa. J.C.Myers demonstrates how the policy of indirect rule formed the basis for segregation and apartheid and underlies the continuing debate over African political identity and "traditional authority".

"This is an important and provocative book. Myers shows why indirect rule developed in South Africa, why it was absorbed by white supremacy, and why it influences South African politics to this day. Theoretically sophisticated, 'Indirect Rule" identifies and explains the central contradiction between the ANC's traditionalist and progressive agendas." Michael MacDonald, Williams College

"A genuine political treatise: nuanced, erudite, creative, committed...through an extraordinary journey through more than a thousand years of reflection from the Afro-Arab world of Ibn Khaldun to the Haitian revolutionary, Zamba Boukman Dutty and the European ones of Karl Marx and Antonio Gramsci to the anti-colonial struggles, in which Mao Zedong, Frantz Fanon, Amilcar Cabral, and Steven Bantu Biko loom large, to recent reflections from Alain Badiou, Sylvian Lazarus, and Ernest Wamba-dia-Wamba, liberation is a political matter...the theorist's task is clear - to make an emancipatory future thinkable. No less than a classic of political thought is born: a book to be read and re-read." Lewis Gordon, author of "What Fanon Said" and "Existentia Africana"

Reporter Gia Nicolaides' account of covering the Marikana massacre in August 2012, and what she and other female journalists experienced.

"Gritty, insightful and absorbing. This is an honest yet disturbing account of the reality faced by female journalists in South Africa. It is time our story was told." Devi Sankare Govender, investigative television journalist, MNet's Carte Blanche

"In Marikana, in a tense and volatile situation dominated by men and where reporters as a whole were viewed with suspicion, female journalists were in a category all of their own - neither wanted nor welcomed - and in fact seen as bringing bad luck or negatively influencing the miners' ability to cope." Alex Crawford, from her foreword

"This is not an academic tome analysing the tragedy of Marikana, but rather it is a window into the world of hard core news coverage. Never again will you take for granted the reporter on the other end of the line who is telling the story from a dangerous place." John Robbie, Talk Radio 702

Many of the essays in this book appeared in the journal "Public Culture", vol.16, no.3, fall 2004, published by Duke University Press.

"Taken together, the essays in 'Johannesburg: the elusive metropolis' offer radically new ways of thinking about this complex city, as well as many hints about emerging or re-emerging cities elsewhere. The essays challenge dominant models of urbanism and demonstrate with force and subtlety how African cities in general and Johannesburg in particular outpace urban theory. Each essay 'de-scribes' the city now in order to envision the city to come. In this volume, we hear - over the droning clichés that still circulate about the African city's ruin and decadence - another note, another cadence". Ackbar Abbas.

Jonathan Jansen, Vice-Chancellor, University of the Free State

To illustrate her claim, she draws on several original datasets covering twenty-seven countries in Africa and detailed case studies of the privatization process in Zambia, Mozambique and South Africa." from page i

    "Full of intriguing and nuanced insights on the politics of privatization in Africa and a valuable contribution to the growing literature on institutional change. Policy makers, Africanists, and comparativists more generally will benefit from reading Pitcher's work." Nancy Bermeo, University of Oxford

    "This path-breaking work offers a systematic and nuanced treatment of the politics of private-sector development in Africa...Drawing on extensive field research and careful quantitative analysis of privatization processes, the book brings a wealth of new data and a fresh theoretical perspective to the study of economic reform in Africa and makes an important contribution to the broader comparative literature on institutional reform." Carrie Manning, Georgia State University

    M.Anne Pitcher is Professor of Political Science and African Studies at the University of Michigan. She is the author of "Transforming Mozambique: the politics of privatization" (2002) and "Politics in the Portuguese Empire: the state, industry and cotton, 1926-1974" (1993).
    Pithouse (R.) WRITING THE DECLINE, on the struggle for South Africa's democracy
    199pp., paperback, Johannesburg, 2016. R240
    Richard Pithouse explores the growing authoritarianism of the South African state, the deepening social crisis, and the new ideas and forces that are emerging.

    "A very important book from one of our most talented historians of the present...The elegance of Richard's writing is unparalleled, and the power of his arguments striking. This book reveals, in the starkest terms, what is at stake in the discourse and practice of emancipation in contemporary South Africa. It will add necessary substance - and, in no small part, erudition - to many of our debates, in these times of born-again anti-intellectualism." Achille Mbembe, author of "On the Postcolony"

    "This collection by Richard Pithouse shows a deep commitment to connecting the struggles of vulnerable people across the globe, doing so with an enviable appreciation of history and structural analysis, and refusing to fall into the South African temptation of parochial analysis. The collection deserves a wide readership, from those who value bottom-up analysis of the search for substantive equality and justice, to those who enjoy writing that demonstrates a poetic command of the English language, or wish to understand the contours of our fledgling but lively democratic project." Eusebius McKaiser, political analyst, broadcaster, lecturer and author of "Run, Racist, Run"

    Richard Pithouse is one of our finest essayists. He is the proverbial canary in the coalmine. With each exposition you watch him fly into the heart of South Africa's dysfunction and wonder whether he will come out alive. He does, just as we do. Time and again, Pithouse emerges with a song - woeful, melodic and, when you least expect it, redemptive." Sisonke Msimang, writer and activist

    Richard Pithouse teaches politics at Rhodes University. He writes regularly for journals and newspapers, both print and online.

The anatomy of Britain in the 21st century" by Anthony Sampson and the 'big question' of this State of the Nation 2016: 'Who is in Charge?' And it seems to me that the State of the Nation series has done for South Africa what Sampson did for Britain; anatomising the body politic, measuring change, identifying progress, diagnosing weaknesses and issuing policy prescriptions."

    "This is the kind of book that every serious research scholar and graduate student ought to read as a matter of urgency. A collection of essays written from an unusually wide, and unusually productive, range of disciplinary perspectives. 'Ethical Quandaries in Social Research' explores many of the most vexed issues involved in social research today. While taking seriously the formal bureaucratic requirements of ethical investigation, it also subjects them to an exceptionally thoughtful critique. But, even more than that, it brings together a number of brutally frank reflections on dilemmas - often intractable dilemmas - that have actually confronted the contributors in the field, the sorts of dilemmas that exceed formal regulation and run to the very heart of research as a knowledge-producing practice. While it does not look for easy answers, this book is a highly impressive engagement with a hugely difficult set of issues."

    Praeg (L.) A REPORT ON UBUNTU,
    305 pp., paperback, Pietermaritzburg, 2014. R335
    Leonard Praeg interrogates the concept of "Ubuntu", which he refers to as "African humanism".

    “Fasten your seatbelts: an ultra-forceful, ultra-provocative and ultra-erudite mind is at work in this book – the journey is complicated and upstream, with a number of brilliant insights along the way.” — Albie Sachs, former Justice, Constitutional Court of South Africa

    “This is a necessary, important and unprecedented philosophical intervention into a debate that, for all the political posturing, has shown itself unable to think the politics of Ubuntu. Praeg’s text redresses that lack by interrogating, it would seem, every element, every possible contingency, every possible variegation, of the term. He is relentless in pursuit of rescuing Ubuntu from inanity and political nonsense and, moreover, instilling in it an intellectual integrity.” — Grant Farred, Professor of Africana Studies, Cornell University

    "The Self Become God: Ubuntu and the 'scandal of manhood'" by Siphokazi Magadla and Ezra Chitando.

    "This is one of the most profound, most foundational discussions of the concept of Ubuntu to date. A highly commendable effort to rescue the concept, as a concrete abstraction, from its devaluation as a political buzzword and as a cheap trope of nationalist rhetoric, the book calls on us to consider Ubuntu's emancipatory potential under the sign of a critical African humanism...It is highly recommended reading for anyone concerned about the present and future - political, material, social, legal, ethical - of life in the global South. And elsewhere." John Comaroff, Hugh K.Foster Professor of African and African American Studies and of Anthropology, Oppenheimer Research Fellow in African Studies, Harvard University

    Leonhard Praeg is Associate Professor and PhD candidate, both in the Department of Political and International Studies at Rhodes University, Grahamstown.

    "A lyrical and captivating book. Not since Kapuscinski's 'The Soccer War' has an author seamlessly combined beautiful storytelling and journalistic detail together with such poignancy. Rawlence brings to life a world overlooked by most and forgotten by too many. 'City of Thorns' is a book of rare power. Flawless’ Samantha Nutt, M.D., founder of the international humanitarian organization War Child and author

    ‘At a time when western governments are obsessing over migrant flows, 'City of Thorns' offers unique insights into what prompts people to abandon their ancestral homes in the first place and the dreams that send them questing for a better life.

Not only does it make plain modern geopolitics, and what makes a refugee, it holds deeper truths about humanity and the system we have designed to preserve it when all seems lost. I worked in these camps at the height of this crisis. I needed this book. As we face a world with more people displaced from their homes than any ever before, 'City of Thorns' is essential reading" Dr James Maskalyk, author of "Six Montha in Sudan, a young doctor in a war-torn village"

    192 pp., illus., paperback, Pietermaritzburg, etc, 2009. R220
    "Steven L. Robins argues for the continued importance of NGOs, social movements and other 'civil society' actors in creating new forms of citizenship and democracy, producing a complex, hybrid and ambiguous relationship between civil society and the state, where new negotiations around citizenship emerge."

    "What becomes of popular politics in post-revolutionary times, when liberation meets liberalization, and struggles against colonial inequality give way to a rhetoric of rights? In this provocative, richly-illustrated book, one of South Africa's most thoughtful scholars probes the everyday meaning of 'rights talk', 'citizenship' and cultural identity...His enlightening ethnographic examples make it plain that post-apartheid politics continues a long tradition of creative improvisation: that it manages to combine the language of rights with an enduring investment in communal forms of belonging." Jean Comaroff, University of Chicago

    324 pp., map, paperback, Reprint, London, (2009) 2001. R175
    Alec Russell looks at the challenges facing South Africa post-Mandela, especially the question of "whether the ANC can avoid the atrophy that has enveloped other African liberation movements that had such high hopes at independence."

    "This is the book we have all been waiting for - the book that takes us beyond the easy assumptions and lazy comfort of the Mandela era and into what Russell calls the second struggle. Eloquently he shows how transforming the magic of freedom into a nuts-and-bolts change in the lives of ordinary people is turning out to be far more difficult than anyone could have imagined." George Alagiah

    "Layered with anecdote, historical background and close scrutiny of recent events, stands as an informative, nuanced and provocative end of era report" Gillian Slovo

    Award-winning journalist Alec Russell is World News Editor for the Financial Times, and formerly their Johannesburg bureau chief.
    Russell (M.) & (M.) AFRIKANERS OF THE KALAHARI, white minority in a Black state
    167 pp., map, illus., paperback, Reprint, Cambridge, (1979) 2008. R290
    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
    Sachs (A.) WE, THE PEOPLE, insights of an activist judge
    349pp., paperback, Johannesburg, 2016. R350
    A collection of essays, lectures and extracts on constitution-making and non-racialism by former judge Albie Sachs.

    "Albie Sachs's book comes at a time when critical reflection and insightful analyses of South Africa's past, and its current challenges are most needed. The reflections in 'We, the People' are indicative not only of one man's commitment to democratic ideals, but also, symbolically, that of South Africa's people." Ahmed Kathrada, former political prisoner and politician

    "Albie Sachs is at once activist and philosopher judge. In 'We, the People', Sachs lets us into his prying thoughts about the foundations and the construction of our constitutional project. He ponders the complex relationship between the people, their chosen government and the idealised outcomes the advent of democracy has promised." Dikgang Moseneke, former Deputy Chief Justice

    Albert "Albie" Louis Sachs (b. 1935) is a former judge on the Constitutional Court of South Africa. He practiced as an advocate at the Cape Bar, defending people charged under racial statutes and security laws. After being arrested and placed in solitary confinement for over five months, Albie Sachs went into exile in England, and later Mozambique. In 1988, in Maputo, he lost an arm and his sight in one eye when a bomb placed in his car exploded. He returned to South Africa in 1990, served as a member of the Constitutional Committee and the National Executive of the African National Congress, and was appointed to the Constitutional Court of South Africa by Nelson Mandela in 1994. He retired in 2009. In 1991, Sachs won the Alan Paton Award for his book, "Soft Vengeance of a Freedom Fighter". He is also the author of "Justice in South Africa" (1974), "The Jail Diary of Albie Sachs" (1966), "Sexism and the Law" (1979), and "The Free Diary of Albie Sachs" (2004). His most recent book, The Strange Alchemy of Life and Law" (2009), also won the Alan Paton Award.

    Sanders (M.) LEARNING ZULU, a secret history of language in South Africa
    198pp., paperback, First SA Edition, Johannesburg, 2016. R350
    First published in the USA in 2016.

    Mark Sanders places his own efforts to learn the Zulu language within a wider context, examining the motives behind the development of Zulu-language learning. He looks at the white appropriation of Zulu language, music, and dance in South African culture, at the association of Zulu with a martial masculinity and with what is most properly and powerfully African. He also explores differences in English- and Zulu-language press coverage of Jacob Zuma's trial for rape, and the role of linguistic purism in xenophobic violence.

    "Ostensibly about one man's quest to acquire a language, 'Learning Zulu' is a clever, surprising, and enlightening journey into 150 years of South African history. Nobody has written quite this subtly about race and language in South Africa in a long while." Jonny Steinberg, University of Oxford

    "'Learning Zulu' is a brilliant book. Unprecedented in the South African arena and very likely beyond, Sanders's ‘secret history' is nothing less than a sustained tour de force and an extraordinary mix of linguistics, literary criticism, cultural studies, legal studies, psychoanalytic theory, and autobiography/memoir. This is very much a book about the psychic and psychopolitical investments involved in acquiring and teaching language in colonial and postcolonial settings." Stephen Clingman, University of Massachusetts, Amherst

    Mark Sanders in Professor of Comparative Literature at New York University. His books include "Complicities: the intellectual and apartheid" and "Ambiguities of Witnessing: law and literature in the time of a truth commission".

    "Michael Schmidt will challenge you in this book. He will enlighten you too. You will want to embrace him for going so far out on a limb with his truths.

    "This book is too serious to be called gonzo but that's how it reads - a scary high-speed ride through the nightmares of recent South African history, with a nerveless, dead-eyed journalist at the wheel. Again and again, Schmidt reminds us that we have more conspiracies per capita than almost any other society on the planet - and that half of them are still out there in the dark, wailing for attention. This is not a book for sissies." Rian Malan, author of "My Traitor's Heart"

    336 pp., hardback, d.w., London, 2014. R325
    John Siko's comparative analysis of foreign policy making in the old and new South Africa.

    "John Siko has written the finest and most comprehensive account of South Africa's foreign policy to date. It is an irony that the foreign policy of an apartheid era was more active internationally, beyond Africa, than South African foreign policy is today. At the same time, Thabo Mbeki's painstaking 'African diplomacy' within Africa is captured by Siko in a compelling fashion, especially in its Zimbabwean dimension. The various think tanks and interest groups, some public and others secret, are all represented here in a valuable and important book." Stephen Chan, SOAS, University of London

    "Dr Siko has produced an innovative and perceptive study of the varying impact of key South African elites on the foreign-policy decision-making process. It is closely argued, based on a formidably wide-range of sources including productive interviews with many of the key actors. The tone and substance of the book demonstrates a commendable scholarly detachment; it will certainly be a valuable text for those interested in a variety of fields including foreign-policy analysis, democratic theory and practice and transitional politics." J.E. Spence, King's College, London

    Analyst and diplomat John Siko joined the US Government in 2000 and served in Pretoria (2004-6) and Cape Town (2008-11). He is also Adjunct Professor at Georgetown and George Washington Universities in Washington DC.

It clearly merits publication – and will enhance existing analysis of contemporary South African political economy." Colin Bundy, former Principal of Green Templeton College, Oxford

    "It is surprising, if not illogical, that not too many people have ever wondered whether a Black man exists at all. If a Black man does exist, why is he constantly in a state of pandemonium, molestation, disease and backwardness? Can a Black man, or any man for that matter, exist for so long and seem to be doing nothing about his problems? There may be grounds for assuming that his inaction in the face of adversity proves a lack of substantive existence. And why is it that someone else and not the Black man himself is responsible for his problems, and guilty of victimising him, as if a Black man is the world's greatest spectator?" from pg. 19

    121 pp., paperback, Cape Town, 2009. R50
    An in-depth study of impoverished young South African men who become fathers while teenagers.

    "Becoming a young father is often portrayed as a personal disaster. In this book, we are taken beyond this story of misfortune into the rich emotional worlds of young, black South African fathers." Robert Morrell, Professor of Education, University of KwaZulu-Natal.

    "'Teenage Tata' is beautifully written and well-illustrated with the words of the protagonists. What beams through is the responsibility young men feel towards their children, and their emotional investment in them. But what is also evident is that these young men have very few options for realising this sense of responsibility. It is plain that this study will be a landmark on the path towards the development of innovative programmes to assist young fathers."

    Symphony Way Pavement Dwellers NO LAND! NO HOUSE! NO VOTE!, voices from Symphony Way
    , Cape Town, 2011. R200
    In 2007 hundreds of families living in backyard shacks in the township of Delft in Cape Town, received letters inviting them to move into new houses in the N2 Gateway Housing Project, only to be told a few months later that these letters had been sent illegally and they were to be evicted. Hundreds of these residents organised themselves into the Symphony Way Anti-Eviction Campaign, built shacks for their families and vowed to stay on the road until the government gave them permanent housing. This publication is a collection of letters written by the people of the Symphony Way Anti-Eviction Campaign.

    "The Symphony Way occupation was a real attempt at an insurgent and tenacious solidarity against an increasingly exclusionary and brutal society. It was an experiment at the outer limits of the innovative and courageous grassroots militancies that have emerged in South Africa in recent years. This book is also an experiment at the outer limits of radical publishing. All the tenacity, beauty, pain, desperation and contradictions that breathe life into any popular struggle haunt the pages of this searing book." Richard Pithouse, Department of Politics and International Struggles, Rhodes University

    "These powerful and poignant testimonies that have emerged from the blockade of Symphony Way are voices ensepulchered by the South African state yet they refuse to be silenced...This is a story of horror conjugated with hope, compellingly told with a brutal directness and eloquence." Professor Peter McLaren, University of California, Los Angeles

    "A magnificent and moving account of a long and hard fought struggle" Michael Watts, Professor of Development Studies, University of California, Berkeley
    Tabane (O.) LET'S TALK FRANKLY, letters to influential South Africans about the state of our nation

    "Through these letters, corruption, internal democracy, racism and other important issues facing our nation are explored in a politically incorrect manner. This book is not a history or reference book but only my ‘arrogant opinion’ (to steal from Khaya Dlanga). I don’t seek so much to be right as to be true to my own belief system, guided by my upbringing. Where I got anything wrong I am happy to receive feedback. My conclusions, expressed strongly in these letters, were arrived at through observing South African politics over the last three decades." from the introduction

    Onkgopotse Tabane is currently Executive Director of Oresego Communications and chief executive of EnviroWorld Productions. He is a director of Pholosang Resolution Services and a founder and host of Frank Dialogue. He is a regular columnist for The Daily Maverick and the Sunday Independent.

    American writer Justine van der Leun spent four years investigating the 1993 murder of American activist Amy Biehl in a township outside Cape Town.

    "A fascinating, clear-eyed journey into the disheartening political reality of contemporary South Africa. In her pursuit of the facts behind a decades-old murder, she shatters convenient narratives about the end of apartheid and the nature of justice, and proceeds on a headlong chase for deeper truths, even those that recede the closer she gets to them." Jill Leoby, author of "Ghettoside"

    "This is not just fine journalism but astonishing storytelling. Justine van der Leun brings to the page a rare combination of muscular reporting, limitless curiosity, soulful vision, courage and tenderness. Through her gifts, you will feel as if you have travelled deep into a country you only thought you knew." Jeff Hobbs, author of "The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace"

    "A troubling, deeply felt piece of work. Van der Leun's excellent reportage reveals that things are not what they seem in South Africa. The book is proof that apartheid has left behind a league of ghosts, Amy Biehl among them, and that the South Africa that Nelson Mandela envisioned remains a distant dream."

    Justine van der Leun has written about South Africa for Harper's and the Guardian. She lived in Cape Town from 2011 to 2013, and now lives in New York.

    225 pp., paperback, Cape Town, 2009. R227
    Foreword by Desmond Tutu.

    Charles Villa-Vicencio discusses the need for reconciliation in any successful political transition after violent conflict.

    "Villa-Vicencio has written a powerful reminder to hold justice in tension with genuine reconciliation, and a challenge to well-meaning international institutions to work in partnership with countries in conflict." Alex Boraine, Chairperson, International Center for Transitional Justice

    "Villa-Vicencio returns reconciliation to its rightful place at the heart of discussions of transitional justice. He shows that, far from being the purview of romantics and fantasists, reconciliation after mass atrocity entails courage, risk, leadership, and above all the space for messy dialogue. In a field increasingly dominated by templates and one-size-fits-all remedies, Villa-Vicencio's call for a form of reconciliation that is culturally relevant and politically aware is most welcome" Phil Clark, Centre for Socio-Legal Studies, University of Oxford

    Charles Villa-Vocencio is a visiting research fellow at The Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs at Georgetown University, and a senior research fellow at the Institutue for Justice and Reconciliation in Cape Town.

Jonathan Jansen, Vice-Chancellor and Principal of the University of the Free State.

    "'Conversations' is a real marketplace of ideas and opinions: vibrant, colourful and fascinating. It shows us how much we have in common, but also how far we are still sometimes apart.

    225pp., map, paperback, First SA Edition, Cape Town, 2015. R270
    Published in the USA in 2015.

    "Anyone who wants to understand what is going on in Africa today needs to read this book. The birth of the African Renaissance and Afro-Arab Spring has injected hope and produced its disappointments. The continent's future is uncertain. I suggest, however, that future generations will look back to this time as a crucial turning point in African and global politics. This book plumbs the depths of Africa's quest for rebirth, often against overwhelming forces of resistance-with tentacles reaching deep into the West, the Middle East, the Arabian Peninsula, and elsewhere." Desmond Tutu

    "This book, based on meticulous research, is well written and at times deliciously sharp. It provides an unprecedented account of the ways in which both the slaves of the Cape Colony and their erstwhile owners reorganised their intertwined lives in the aftermath of abolition. For the first time, a description of Cape society is combined with a clear understanding of the shifting social ideologies that led to an enhanced South African racism. It is a singular achievement." Robert Ross, Leiden University

    "This is a critical study of a much-neglected period - the decades around and after slave emancipation in the 1830s - and its impact on the racial structuring of the Cape Colony. Watson writes with vigor and insight, offering fresh perspectives on a vital topic in South African history, with comparative insights from North American scholarship."

    First published in the UK and USA in 2013.

    A collection of essays that examine South Africa's history of racial oppression and the possibilities and impossibilities of transforming South African society by engaging with stories submitted to the Apartheid Archive Project.

    The Apartheid Archives project is an ongoing collaborative international research initiative that focuses on the collection, documentation and analysis of personal stories from ordinary South Africans, about their experiences of racism under apartheid and the continuing effects on individual and group functioning in contemporary South Africa. The project believes that it is important for South African society to review, acknowledge and deal with its past, in order to better manage its present and future, and aims to supplement the 'grand' narratives recorded by the TRC. The project was conceptualized and initiated in 2008 by two psychologists at the University of the Witwatersrand, and continues to be housed there.
