For those wise enough to choose the former, this handbook is a valuable guide."Paul Collier, Professor of Economics and Public Policy, Blavatnik School of Government, Oxford University

Ruggunan (S.) WAVES OF CHANGE, globalisation and seafaring labour markets
156pp., illus., paperback, Cape Town, 2016. R190
An account of how processes of globalisation work in the cargo shipping industry.

"'Waves of Change' highlights the complex, often poorly understood world of the global shipping industry and the seafarers who carry more than 90% of the world's trade by volume. As one of the oldest global industries, the book challenges the simplistic capitalistic and neo classical ideals that subsequently argue for nation states to leave the commercial fate of any domestic shipping industry to global market forces. Instead the author asks many critical questions - most profound being if nations rely on shipping so heavily and global markets are so turbulent and equilibrium so elusive, why have so many governments abandoned shipping industry reform? This impressive book challenges us to ask why nations are passively ignoring the social and economic benefits derived from a properly regulated, competitive shipping industry manned by seafarers who are not only competent, but recognised for their contribution to a nation's success." Marcus Bowles, Director of the Institute for Working Futures and Professor at the Australian Maritime College, University of Tasmania

241 pp., b/w & colour illus., paperback, Johannesburg, 2013. R250
Businessman Peter Vundla's autobiography.

Foreword by Barney Pityana.

"Peter Vundla's memoirs are a testament to and a celebration of an extraordinary life lived in extraordinary times. A boy from humble beginnings who made good against all the odds; who at the apex of his achievements hobnobbed with the great and good (and still does), and eminently cares about more than just his immediate surroundings. There's an unmistakable restlessness, regret and sadness coursing through the narrative, i.e. that the freedom attained at such great cost to so many seems to have turned into a mirage for most of his people. A dream betrayed." Barney Mthombothi, former editor, Financial Mail

Peter Vundla was born in 1948 in Western Native Township outside Johannesburg. In 1958 his family were forcefully removed to Soweto by the apartheid government. He founded the first black-owned advertising agency, HerdBuoys, in 1991. He is currently Chair of African Merchant & Investment Bank and Chair of Pamodzi Investment Holdings Ltd.
