236pp., illus., paperback, Cape Town, 2017. R300
William David Terry read English at Trinity Hall, Cambridge, during the early years of World War II.

W.D. Terry "wrote exceptionally interesting and observant letters, and a diary which he kept when a student in Cambridge between 1938 and 1940, covering the period immediately preceding and following the outbreak of war in September 1939. Together they provide a vivid picture of Cambridge at the time, conveying the atmosphere of the 'phoney war' and the way his fellow students, the university and the city as a whole grappled with the meaning and realities of war. All of it seen from the perspective of a perceptive white English-speaking South Africa, proud and privileged to be there, feeling both at home and a stranger at the same time. It is full of fascinating vignettes, reflecting his powers of observation and description..." Brian Willan, author of "Sol Plaatje: South African Nationalist"

"Remember him? You bet! I never, ever, heard a student speak of [Terry] with less than total respect. Nobody in my circles knew his name - even now - I know not what the W.D. might be about. Nobody asks God what his name is..." Charles van Onselen, author of "The Seed is Mine"

Laurence Wright is currently a Senior Research Fellow at NorthWest University. He was formerly H.A. Molteno Professor of English and Director of the Institute for the Study of English in Africa at Rhodes University.

"Class Action is a vivid, honest and compelling account of a difficult life lived on the Cape Flats during the apartheid years. What the author does better than most is to offer an interwoven account of the personal and the social in ways that helps us understand both better - how apartheid not only crushed black lives but at the same time emboldened the resistance against this crime against humanity. From the ashes of a broken life, Charles Abrahams rises to lead on a world stage the first class-action lawsuit on behalf of victims of apartheid. Nobody has told the story of our violent past with such a clear sense of the present and such a hopeful vision of the future."

Adéèkò (A.) ed. PHILIP QUAQUE'S LETTERS TO LONDON, 1765-1811
165pp., paperback, Pretoria, 2017. R415
A collection of Reverend Philip Quaque's letters to the United Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts. Philip Quaque (1741-1816) was born in Cape Coast, Ghana, and named Kweku. In 1754 he was one of three Fante children taken to London for education by a missionary from the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel. In 1759 he was baptised, took the name Philip, went on to study theology, and was ordained as a minister of the Church of England in 1765. The following year he returned to Cape Coast, where he was employed by the Royal African Company as the chaplain at Cape Coast Castle. He set up a small school in his home, and tried to work as a missionary, but having forgotten most of his native tongue he struggled to communicate. He wrote a series of letters to the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel during his time at Cape Coast Castle.

"There are many reasons to welcome Adélékè Adéèkò's new edition of the letters of the Reverend Philip Quaque: the letters bring new insights into the contradictions that defined the encounter between Europeans and West Africans in the modern period, and of Quaque's complicated life as he tried to negotiate his role as a subject caught between the aspiration to be modern and the brutality of the slave trade. Adéèkò's careful editing of the letters makes them accessible to modern readers and ensures that the troubled and troubling voice of the African will become central to our understanding of the 'Black Atlantic.' Simon Gikandi, Robert Schirmer Professor of English, Princeton University

"This is a magnificent gift offering not just to the well-established field of West African church history, but to the wider area of identity formation in the era of early colonial capitalism. A text to be celebrated!" Ato Quayson, Professor of English, FRSU University, and Director of the Centre for Diaspora and Transnational Studies, University of Toronto

Adélékè Adéèkò is a Humanities Distinguished Professor at Ohio State University.

"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.

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

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."

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's 'Americanah' is a book that manages to do both...A deeply felt book, written with equal parts lyricism and erudition. More than that, it is an important book - and yet one that never lets its importance weigh down the need to tell a truly gripping human story." Elizabeth Day, The Observer

"Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is an extraordinarily self-aware thinker and writer, possessing the ability to lambaste society without sneering or patronising or polemicizing. For her, it seems no great feat to balance high-literary intentions with broad social critique. 'Americanah' examines blackness in America, Nigeria and Britian, but it is also a steady-handed dissection of the universal human experience - a platitude made fresh by Adichie's observations...'Americanah' is witheringly trenchant and hugely empathetic, both worldy and geographically precise, a novel that holds the discomforting realities of our times fearlessly before us. It never feels false." Mike Peed, The New York Times

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie was born in 1977 and grew up in Nigeria. A recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship, she now divides her time between Nigeria and the USA. Her first novel, "Purple Hibiscus", was long-listed for the Booker Prize. Her second novel, "Half of a Yellow Sun", won the 2007 Orange Prize for Fiction.

"An intoxicating story that is at once distinctly feminine, African and universal" Observer

"A sensitive and touching story of a child exposed too early to religious intolerance and the uglier side of the Nigerian state." J.M.Coetzee

Alexander (P.), Ceruti (C.), Motseke (K.), Phadi (M.), Wale (K.) CLASS IN SOWETO,
306 pp., paperback, Pietermaritzburg, 2013. R340
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

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

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

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

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

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.

152pp., paperback, Grahamstown, 2017. R260
"The work is a worthwhile contribution to the debate on what constitutes anglophone African literature, and whether African literature in English could be considered truly African as part of an 'anglophone literary-linguistic continuum'. The concept of such a continuum, based on Bickerton's thesis on the Creole continuum, is interesting and developed persuasively. The author convincingly shows how the four authors chosen for analysis provide diverse perspectives for viewing the continuum of anglophone African writing with peculiar characteristics and divergences imposed by the local context and its influence on the English language." Dr Leonie Viljoen, Department of English Studies, University of South Africa

Examines selected novels by Chinua Achebe of Nigeria, James Ngugi of Kenya, Nadine Gordimer of South Africa and Nuruddin Farah of Somalia.

Father Babychan Arackathara, who has worked as a Catholic chaplain in southern African prisons for 20 years, reflects on his work in restorative justice and reintegration interventions and shares the stories of offenders.

Those raised in poverty still live out the 'injustices of the past', and are denied access to 'social justice and fundamental human rights'. These accounts are the nagging warnings of our collective failure to lift those who stumble - those who don't fit into the mould that we have created to describe well-adjusted people. Light Through the Bars is a reminder of how much more we can - and should - do to create a caring, just society" Trevor Manuel, from his foreword

207 pp., b/w & colour illus., paperback, Johannesburg, 2014. R355
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.

A study of lived relationships, 'Inside African Anthropology' reveals the heterogeneity and negotiation in intellectual work." Nancy Jacobs, Brown University

"Combining critical intellectual history with biography, the chapters that make up this fascinating book remind us again that social anthropological scholarship has always been a 'co-production', no more so than in South Africa during the period of apartheid. Unusually, among her peers, Monica Wilson always acknowledges this fact - it was intrinsic to her life's work as a scholar and dedicated teacher." Megan Vaughan, Cambridge Univeristy

Bank (L,) & Qebeyi (M.) IMONTI MODERN, picturing the life & times of a South African location
238pp., illus., maps. paperback, Cape Town, 2017. R200
A social history of East London's Coloured and African townships from the early 1950s until these communities were destroyed in the early 1960s by apartheid-era forced removals.

"Surfacing histories preserved in sources from images to poetry and earlier scholarly texts, this volume offers a highly unusual engagement with a sometimes neglected city. Accessible, entertaining, yet deeply researched, the authors take the reader on a journey through extraordinary experiences as East London grew from a small city to a major centre of social and economic life in the Eastern Cape. The book brings East London and its citizens, once more, into place alongside the largest South African metropolitan areas and others with deep histories of segregation. East London's own character and roles in the formation of contemporary society spring from the pages and both widen and deepen understandings of urbanism in African contexts." Alan Mabin, Emeritus Professor of Urban Studies, Wits University

Leslie Bank is Deputy Executive Director at the HSRC in Cape Town and Adjunct Professor of Social Anthropology at the University of Fort Hare.

326pp., illus., map, paperback, Cape Town, 2019. R295
A case study of the Eastern Cape motor city of East London, a site of significant industrial job losses over the past two decades.

"This truly remarkable book provides an outstanding and highly innovative call for how re-thinking the idea of the university can lead to a regeneration of East London, South Africa's 'rust-belt' city. With the settler-nationalist dream of a 'motor city' fading, the book reflects on the contradictory nature of post-apartheid urbanism, and how this relates to changing cultural configurations and the recent rise of an African middle class. Written by one of South Africa's most engaged anthropologists, this book will attract widespread attention globally as well as locally." Roger Southall, Professor Emeritus in Sociology, University of the Witwatersrand

"This highly readable, richly ethnographic and interdisciplinary book significantly expands our understanding of East London's cultural history, its contemporary challenges and future possibilities. if you are looking for a fiercely researched South African urban study that engages closely with dynamics on the global Rust Belt, then this is the book for you." Peter Alegi, Professor of History, Michigan State University

Leslie Bank is Deputy Executive Director of the Human Sciences Research Council.

Bekker (S.) & Fourchard (L.) eds. GOVERNING CITIES IN AFRICA, politics and policies
205 pp., maps, paperback, Cape Town, 2013. R200
"'Governing Cities in Africa: politics and policies' brings a unique set of comparative and collaboratively-generated insights to bear on some key themes of urbanism in sub-Saharan Africa. The book brings to the fore themes that are often neglected in urban studies generally - such as the role of political parties - and interrogates and proposes alternatives to some terms - such as informality - which are perhaps overused in exploring Africa. It has a very dynamic approach to building genuinely new analyses, working across a few to several cities at once, exploring both astonishing similarities and surprising differences, and bringing clarity of thinking to some of the top scholars working on these issues in the region and beyond. This is a rare kind of book, based on deep empirical knowledge and complex theoretical reflection, drawing insight from different language communities and from a very wide array of different cities - it is genuinely comparative, and a model for how to build conceptual insights about urban processes" Jennifer Robinson, Professor of Geography, University College, London

Betty (M.) METAPHYSICAL BALM, poems
75pp., paperback, Cape Town, 2017. R230

She astutely anchors the poems in concrete imagery so as to ensure that a considered balance between the actual and the imagined prevails. You don't often encounter a resonant voice in a first book, but that is precisely what distinguishes this collection." Douglas Reid Skinner

"This is an accomplished work of heart. The 'reverberations of the heart' in this volume resonate with other poets and philosophers. Highly commendable." Joan Hambidge

"Michèle Betty's collection with its protagonist Owl, breaks open the doors that keep life's mysteries hidden from view. Mystical and yet deeply grounded in the human(e), these are the sorts of poems which flood heart and brain with a brilliant, bloody light." Meg Vandermerwe

Michèle Betty is the poetry editor of New Contrast: the South African literary journal.

441 pp., paperback, Cape Town, 2014. R200
A new thriller set in Detroit, by Lauren Beukes.

Beukes "genuinely conjures up horror in its purest, most sincere form. There is real grief when characters we have come to identify with are subjected to all the banality and monstrosity of evil, and a goose-flesh sensation as we realise how similar the evil's values are to our own beliefs in art, in opportunity, in wanting the world to be a better place. Never exploitative, never superficial, never uncomplicated: Beukes shows how horror can be the best way to explain our unbelievable reality. She uses the mode like the knife that opens the oyster." Stuart Kelly, The Guardian

Ben H. Winters, author of 'Underground Airlines"

"Bold, brazen, and brilliant - now this is a collection to die for. Beukes fearlessly skewers personal relationships, social injustice and pop culture (among other things), and every story is a masterclass in flair, wit, and fresh ideas." Sarah Lotz, author of "The Three" and "Day Four"

William Beinart, African Studies Centre, University of Oxford

Bizos (G.) 65 YEARS OF FRIENDSHIP, a memoir of my friendship with Nelson Mandela
315pp., illus., paperback, Cape Town, 2017. R290
Foreword by Dikgang Moseneke.

"Bizos, intuitive as ever, does not attempt to depict Mandela as a flawless, saintly icon. Through a beguiling mixture of anecdote and analysis, he portrays Mandela as a human being willing to recognise his own weaknesses, and address them. He also captures Mandela's most benevolent strength, a willingness to acknowledge the strengths in others, including avowed former enemies. This would help Mandela to negotiate effectively with the apartheid regime.
This book. through lucid analysis, and often humorous anecdotes, vividly and honestly captures the life of Nelson Mandela. It also goes beyond personalities, providing fresh and honest insights into the evolution of the hideous apartheid system, from the late 1940s and beyond, as well as the birth of the 'new' South Africa." Achmat Dangor, author of "Kafka's Curse" and "Bitter Fruit"

"No one but George Bizos could have told this tale. He not only witnesses Nelson Mandela's tribulations and triumphs as counsel and friend for more than half a century, seeing history being made close-up, but himself made an important contribution to that history. This richly detailed record of his personal recollections and insights, while highly readable as a moving story of a unique friendship, makes a valuable contribution to our contemporary history." Johann Kriegler, retired justice of the Constitutional Court of South Africa

"My first reaction to the news of a book about a friendship between George Bizos and Nelson Mandela was one of skepticism: they might have once been client and counsel or comrades even, but were they friends? The book not only expels my doubts, but shows there are different kinds of friendships. I am now a believer. George and Nelson were friends. Dear friends. Theirs was a unique, special kind of friendship. It has transcended race, culture, generation, politics and life itself. It has been timeless. Few could have captured its essence as the intimate and beautiful prose in this book does." Tembeka Ngcukaitobi, lawyer and author of "The Land is Ours, South Africa's first black lawyers and the birth of constitutionalism"

George Bizos was born in 1928 in the Greek village of Vasilitsi. During the Second World War he escaped from his occupied homeland and came to South Africa. Graduating from the University of the Witwatersrand with a legal degree and called to the Bar, he acted for many of Nelson Mandela's and Oliver Tambo's clients. He was involved with the Treason Trial of the late 1950s and the subsequent Rivonia Trial, the trials of Braam Fischer and Winnie Mandela, the Delmas Trial, and other human-rights trials through the 1970s and 1980s. He acted for the ANC at the post-1994 constitutional hearings and was associated with the amnesty hearings of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. He is also the author of "No One To Blame? In pursuit of legal justice in South Africa" and his autobiography, "Odyssey to Freedom".

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".

176pp., map, paperback, Cape Town, 2017. R190
"Tanja Bosch's new book is an important addition to the literature. It tackles the under-researched medium of radio, demonstrating how public, community and commercial stations in South Africa contribute to identity formation and to the public sphere in distinct but related ways. Both scholarly and readable, the work is essential reading for anybody wanting to understand South Africa's unique media landscape and still new democracy." Franz Kruger, Professor of Journalism and Director of the Wits Radio Academy

"Radio is Africa's most ubiquitous medium. South Africa's race-space relations were footprinted during apartheid by transmission technology, therefore making sense of radio helps to make sense of the post-apartheid condition. Talk radio is part of the ideological topography. This engaging study addresses contemporary issues in historical context." Kenyan Tomaselli, Distinguished Professor, University of Johannesburg and Professor Emeritus and Fellow, University of KwaZulu-Natal

"This is an emphatic, engaging, well-grounded and richly argued study of the centrality of radio in claims and contestations that pertain to identity and democracy in South Africa post-apartheid." Francis Nyamnjoh, author of "Africa's Media, Democracy and the Politics of Belonging"

Brits (E.) EMILY HOBHOUSE, beloved traitor
336pp., b/w & colour illus., map, paperback, Cape Town, 2016. R390
A biography of British pacifist, socialist and feminist Emily Hobhouse. Emily Hobhouse opposed the 1899-1902 Anglo-Boer War and came to South Africa to help Boer women and children incarcerated in British concentration camps. She died in London in 1926, alone and penniless. Her body was shipped back to South Africa where four months later thousands gathered to pay tribute to her. Today her remains are interred at the Vrouemonument (Women’s Monument) in Bloemfontein.


In the course of her research for the book Cape Town-based journalist and writer Elsabé Brits located one of Hobhouse’s relatives living on Vancouver Island, Canada, who had a trunk full of Emily Hobhouse’s scrapbooks and diaries, and a draft autobiography, unseen until now. Brits quotes extensively from these writings in her book.

"Brits’ book is not only about history but allows us, sometimes through Hobhouse’s own eloquent writings, to see and understand how and what she thought – about the politics of the time, about war, about human suffering and about what is it that is required in the face of injustice. It is packed with photographs and other records – including from Hobhouse’s unseen scrap books...As such Hobhouse emerges now as a moral beacon in a world still in need of these brave humans." Marianne Thamm, Daily Maverick

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

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

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

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

310pp., illus., paperback, Johannesburg, 2016. R240

A founder member and chairman of Lawyers For Human Rights, in 2008 he received the Sydney and Felicia Kentridge Award for Service to Law in Southern Africa. Danile Browde is Jules Browde's son.

"Danile Browde's account of Jules Browde's life is rich, engaging, intriguing and delightful. Crammed with human and historical interest, it reveals Jules Browde as a large-hearted, generous man, whose expansive spirit encompassed warfare, politics, family and friendship across critical decades of our democracy's history and prehistory - but whose life, pre-eminently, was committed to elementary justice for all in our country." Edwin Cameron, Justice of the Constitutional Court of South Africa

"Browde writes a precise, elegant prose, warmed by an appealing candour and understated lyricism. His book is both a tangential biography and an amusing account of the perils and pleasures of learning to be a writer. In counterpoint, the voices of the 'young storyteller' and his grandfather show how a life is made in interaction and relationship, among family and friends, in the stories we tell one another and ourselves." Ivan Vladislaviç, author of "Portrait with Keys"

"Duncan Brown - seriously, irreverently - explores our 'wildnesses' in interactions of nature's biology and human responsiveness.

A timely book for our times." Professor Michael Chapman, author of Green in Black and White Times

"This is a book in its right time. Duncan Brown is creating a new language for what it means to be an environmentally integrated human being. The greatest of human discoveries in the future will be that at some level we are, and always have been, 'wild'." Don Pinnock, author of Wild as It Gets

Brown (J.) SOUTH AFRICA'S INSURGENT CITIZENS, on dissent and the possibility of politics
211pp., paperback, First SA Edition, Johannesburg, 2015. R240
First published in the UK in 2015.

Julian Brown argues that although the dream of consensus politics in South Africa has collapsed this is not a cause for despair since a new kind of politics, new leaders and new movements are emerging.

"Julian Brown's book offers us a rich and intriguing account of ourselves as a country of protest. His analysis is insightful, and ultimately hopeful." Justice Edwin Cameron, Constitutional Court of South Africa

"Julian Brown vividly analyses popular politics, insisting that the mobilisation of ordinary, insurgent citizens has and will impact on the shape of society and as yet unpredictable political outcomes." William Beinart, African Studies Centre, University of Oxford

"Julian Brown both challenges existing analytical frameworks and offers innovative ways of thinking about protests." Noor Nieftagodien, University of the Witwatersrand

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

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

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

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

Julian Brown is a senior lecturer in the Department of Political Studies at the University of the Witwatersrand. He is also the author of "South Africa's Insurgent Citizens: on dissent and the possibility of politics" (2015).

Thank you Ryan for bringing him back to life." Allister Sparks

Sylvia Bruinders draws on her own background as well as her experience of being a band member to present a social history of the Western Cape Coloured communities' centuries-old practice of ushering in Christmas through music.

"This book will fill a gap in existing scholarship. It has relevance to the humanities in Africa in general in its attention to the impact of colonialism and the attendant marginalization of this population group to the point that this tradition emerged as a vehicle to establish a semblance of 'respectability' in reactions to a negative stereotype." Diane Thram, International Library of African Music, Rhodes University

"The strength of Carlin's superb book is that it weaves many disparate strands into a humane and sensitive overview of a case that shocked the world...The detail is fascinating" Matthew Syed, The Times

Carlin's account is framed by the progress of the Blade Runner's trial, but it's also a de facto biography that exposes his psychological incongruities" Independent

History is not made by men or women on pedestals, but those who will bend and seek solutions rather than just stay on the high horse. This reminder is a lesson for our time as well."

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

Lynn Carneson, daughter of Fred and Sarah Carneson, was brought up in Cape Town and exiled at the age of eighteen to London. She is currently a senior fellow at the Corporate Governance Unit at Stellenbosch University.

Carnoy (M.), Chisholm (L.) & Chilisa (B.) eds. THE LOW ACHIEVEMENT TRAP, comparing schooling in Botswana and South Africa
172 pp., maps, paperback, Cape Town, 2012. R180
An empirical study of student mathematics learning in Grade 6 classrooms in Botswana and South Africa, and an exploration of why students in south-eastern Botswana seem to be doing better than those in North West Province, South Africa.

"'The Low Achievement Trap' looks at an intriguing puzzle: why students in one community learn mathematics at much higher levels than similar students just a few miles away. The researchers analyse in detail the teaching-learning process in classrooms, as well as the very different policy contrasts that influence these schools. The result is a powerful analysis of what matters in teaching - and how it can be improved." Linda Darling Hammond, Stanford University
Carpenter (N.) & Lawrance (B.) eds. AFRICANS IN EXILE, mobility, law and identity
337pp., illus., maps, paperback, Bloomington, 2018. R630
“Rather than a rare punishment inflicted on dissident elites, exile is revealed in this important volume as one of the defining features of African history since the colonial era. In their deeply researched and thematically linked essays, contributors present instances of exile from around the continent that illustrate the ambitions and limits of state power, extra-territorial strategies of resistance, and the capacity of relocation to spur both suffering and creativity. Africans in Exile masterfully enriches our understanding of two key themes in African history, mobility and community, and their salience for politics and individual experience over the past century and into the present.” Lisa Lindsay, author of Atlantic Bonds: A Nineteenth Century Odyssey from America to Africa

In so doing, he expands our understanding of the place of spirituality in processes of world-making - not merely in Africa, but everywhere."

The book builds on the "Chikane Files", a series of controversial articles Chikane published with Independent Newspapers in July 2010, in which he provided an insider's perspective on this period and explored Mbeki's legacy.

Frank Chikane's former appointments include Deputy President of the United Democratic Front, member of the National Executive Committee of the African National Congress, commissioner of the Independent Electoral Commission, and General Secretary of the South African Council of Churches. He is currently pastor of the Apostolic Faith Mission of South Africa (AFM) in Soweto, the president of AFM International, and the visiting adjunct professor at the Graduate School of Public & Development Management at the University of the Witwatersrand. He also consults with companies that do business on the African continent.

He also discusses his poisoning and his efforts to correct the error in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's initial report.

188pp., paperback, Johannesburg, 2018. R225
24-year-old Christy Chilimigras writes about growing up in Johannesburg with a crack-addict father and a pot-smoking mother.

"Writing about addiction is risky business. The writer risks being preachy and self-righteous, or fucking boring and judgemental. In this no-holds-barred tale, Chilimigras achieves an unusual feat of sharing some intimate slices of a life dangerously lived, without being melodramatic or over the top. It's a controlled confession littered with landmines of dangerous humour, the kind that will get you kicked out of bed if you, like me, are one of those who do a lot of reading in it. But when you've finished laughing you can't help but sit back and think. Very hard." Fred Khumalo, author of "Dancing the Death Drill"

Chisholm (L.) BETWEEN WORLDS, German missionaries and the transition from mission to Bantu Education in South Africa
265pp., illus., maps, paperback, Johannesburg, 2017. R380
"In "Between Worlds Linda Chisholm meticulously and with great sensitivity dissects how one mission society, the German Hermannsburg Mission Society, parleyed its decision to remain within the state system in the shift from mission to Bantu Education, in creative and important ways. The book is a detailed portrait of the Hermannsburg Mission’s education work, but also a critical and insightful commentary on a set of broader questions, reflecting off the current political moment in South Africa." Professor Natasha Erlank, Historical Studies, University of Johannesburg

"Linda Chisholm’s account of German Lutheran missionaries’ school and teacher education work in South Africa disrupts conventional understandings of the role of missionaries in the development of South Africa’s education system. Drawing on extensive archival research in South Africa and Germany, the history of the largely ignored Hermannsburg Mission reveals the ambiguities and contradictions which marked their complex relationships with local communities and the colonial and apartheid state." Volker Wedekind, School of Education, University of Nottingham

286 pp., maps, illus., paperback, Cape Town, 2012. R395
A collection of essays on the series of crises facing the people of Zimbabwe.

"Much ink has been spilt over 'the Zimbabwean crisis' in well-meaning explanations which merely confirm pre-existing ideological hypotheses. In a dramatic departure from this trend, 'Crisis! What crisis? The multiple dimensions of the Zimbabwean crisis' asks difficult questions about interlocking aspects of the crisis. This multi-disciplinary collection of essays shows that much can be gleaned from paying attention to the humanity of Zimbabweans at home and in the diaspora through the layered expressions of their agency." Pumla Dineo Gqola, author of "What is Slavery to Me?"

This book is destined to become a classic in the study of education and social movements." Professor Derrick Alridge, Curry School of Education, University of Virginia

A memoir by Stephen Clingman. As a young child, Stephen underwent an operation to remove a birthmark under his right eye. The operation failed, and the birthmark returned. The operation also affected his vision.

From the minutely observed details of a Johannesburg childhood, through the dark comedy of military service, to the challenges of making a new life as an immigrant scholar, Clingman examines his own perspectives and their origins. How did I come to see this way? How does this way of seeing shape the person I am? Can it be changed? To answer such difficult questions, he must go beneath the shimmering surface to find deeper patterns in his mind and body, and reveal the 'underlying grammar of things'. The result is a thoughtful, unconventional memoir that will change the reader's perspective too." Ivan Vladislaviç

"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?

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."

Cock (J.) WRITING THE ANCESTRAL RIVER, a biography of the Kowie
193pp., map, b/w & colour illus., paperback, Johannesburg, 2018. R350
"Jacklyn Cock has penned a love letter that is as hopeful as it is elegiac. Drawing on family connections to the Kowie River that go back to the 1820 settlers, Cock asks big questions about the relationship between nature and culture, between humans and other forms of life, and about the place of rivers in human history. It is only by rethinking our relationship to nature that we can save ourselves." Jacob Dlamini, Assistant Professor of History, Princeton University

"Jacklyn Cock has made the story of a small and fairly insignificant river into a metonym of the biological glories of South Africa and the ecological devastation they have endured, and continue to endure. The result is at once lyrical and trenchant. As a history rooted in the landscape of South Africa, it has few peers, and no superiors."

Coetzee (C.) ACCENTED FUTURES, language activism and the ending of apartheid
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." Lindiwe Dovey, School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London

Coetzee (C.) WRITTEN UNDER THE SKIN, blood and intergenerational memory in South Africa
176pp., paperback, First SA Edition, Johannesburg, 2019. R350
FIrst published in the UK in 2019.

Carli Coetzee argues that "the younger generation of South Africans is developing important and innovative ways of understanding South African pasts, and that challenge the narratives that have over the last decades been informed by notions of forgiveness and reconciliation." from the back cover

"Carli Coetzee has made a name for herself by showing – not telling – her readers what reconciliation after apartheid should mean. It should mean nudging South Africans away from the dangerous assumptions that negotiating the past means leaving unchallenged old patterns of privilege, that the work of translation should always benefit English and its primary speakers, and, in her latest book, that skin-deep is sufficient depth for reckoning with the past. Written under the Skin is about blood and South Africa’s bloody past. It is also about the transfusion of memory across generations. The book challenges the discourse of newness that has marked South Africa since the formal end of apartheid in 1994, by showing the violence done and masked by such a discourse. Written under the Skin calls for new ways of reading South African history. It proposes protocols of care – cautious, ethical, vigilant – to guide these new ways of reading. There is in this book a moral urgency and an ethical injunction that demand our attention. We dare not ignore this book." Jacob Dlamini, Assistant Professor of History, Princeton University

Carli Coetzee is Editor of the Journal of African Cultural Studies. Her publications include Accented Futures: language activism and the ending of apartheid and the edited collection Afropolitanism: reboot. She co-edited Negotiating the Past: the making of memory in South Africa with Sarah Nuttall.

A new novel by J.M.Coetzee about a man and a boy's new life in an imagined socialist state.

"Coetzee has always had the enviable ability, in a writer, to make a virtue of his limitations. The prose is very plain; the characters are a little abstract; the questions they ask aren't quite as interesting as they suppose. Coetzee knows all this, but where it leaves the reader I'm not so sure." Benjamin Markovitz, The Observer

260pp., paperback, London, 2016. R305
The sequel to "The Childhood of Jesus", continuing the story of the boy David and his guardians Simón and Inés, living in an imagined socialist state.

"...So, what are stories for? Are they for grown ups or babies? In spite of its declared suspicion of Platonic idealism, the spirit of Plato, rather than the anarchic Jesus with his boundary-pushing parables, hovers over this book. Plato was famously dismissive of the seductive properties of mimetic literature, which urge us to make an imaginative identification with a fictional world. He would have agreed without hesitation that novels are for babies. Philosophy is for adults. On the evidence of this austere, barely realised mise-en-scène, it is difficult not to feel that Coetzee, like Plato, is no longer much interested in the accidents of our quotidian human world, the shadows on the cave wall. He is after essence alone, the pure, ungraspable fire. In his fidelity to ideas, to telling rather than showing, to instructing rather than seducing us, he does not actually write fiction any more. The Schooldays of Jesus, philosophically dense as it is, is parched, relentlessly adult fare – rather like eating endless bread and bean paste." Elizabeth Lowry, The Guardian

J.M.Coetzee's work includes "Waiting for the Barbarians", "Life & Times of Michael K","Disgrace" and "Diary of a Bad Year." He was the first author to win the Booker Prize twice and was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2003.

242 pp., illus., hardback, Farnham & Burlington, 2013. R650
Through a specific architectural lens, and through reference to previously unexamined archival material, Nicholas Coetzer exposes the significant role British architects and British architectural ideas played in facilitating white dominance and racial segregation in pre-apartheid Cape Town.

"A younger generation of scholars is now rethinking the architectural history of South Africa, and with this book, Nic Coetzer proudly joins their ranks. He provides a fascinating yet chilling tale of how British Garden City planning and housing design played a role in racial segregation in Cape Town, creating appalling social problems which would have ramifications for decades after." Murray Fraser, UCL Bartlett School of Architecture, UK

Nicholas Coetzer is a senior lecturer in the School of Architecture, Planning and Geomatics, University of Cape Town.

259 pp., paperback, London, 2011. R190
A debut novel about a young mixed-raced Nigerian psychologist who wanders the streets of Manhattan.

"'Open City' is not a loud novel, nor a thriller, nor a nail-biter. What it is, is a gorgeous, crystalline, and cumulative investigation of memory, identity, and erasure." Anthony Doerr, author of "The Shell Collector".

"In this ambitious debut, [New York] is reinvented yet again, as a modern, elusive, seemingly borderless metropolis, still dominated by the memory of 9\11, but built from many more stories of conflict, brought across the seas by New York's ever-changing migrant population." Clare Allfree, Metro.

"[Cole] opens up for the reader new vistas on love, race, identity, friendship, memory, dislocation and Manhattan bird life... A modern meditation that is both complex and utterly simple." The Economist.

Collyer (F.), Connell (R.), Maia (J.) & Morrell (R.) KNOWLEDGE AND GLOBAL POWER, making new sciences in the South
217pp., paperback, First SA Edition, Johannesburg, 2019. R350
First published in Australia.

"Knowledge and Global Power is a ground-breaking international study which examines how knowledge is produced, distributed and validated globally. The former imperial nations - the rich countries of Europe and North America - still have a hegemonic position in the global knowledge economy. Fran Collyer, Roewyn Connell, João Maia and Robert Morrell, using interviews, databases and fieldwork, show how intellectual workers respond in three Southern tier countries, Brazil, South Africa and Australia. The study focuses on new, socially and politically important research fields: HIV/AIDS, climate change and gender studies. The research demonstrates emphatically that 'place matters', that research and scholarship are shaped by global relationships. But it also shows that knowledge workers in the global South have room to move: they can set distinctive agendas and form local knowledge." Jonathan Jansen, Distinguished Professor of Education, University of Stellenbosch

Fran Collyer is Associate Professor at the University of Sydney.
Roewyn Connell is Professor Emerita at the University of Sydney.
João Maia teaches in the School of Social Sciences at Fundação Getulio Vargas, Rio de Janeiro.

He served three terms, ending in the Senate as Minister of Eduction in 2013.

"David Coltart has delivered a masterful account of Zimbabwe's unfinished struggle for freedom. If you want to understand in particular the frustrations and setbacks of the last decade under Robert Mugabe you should read this book." Alec Russell, head of news at the Financial Times and author of "After Mandela: battle for the soul of South Africa"

"What emerges from this dramatic journey is a sense of courageous personal conviction and a faith in the inspiring resilience of his countrymen and women." Nicholas 'Fink' Haysom, Special Representative of the Secretary General for Afghanistan and former legal advisor to President Nelson Mandela

"This magnificent book is far more than just the autobiography of one of the most significant figures in Zimbabwean history; it is also a history of Zimbabwe, and a moral testament." Peter Osborne, political columnist of the Daily Mail
Comaroff (J.) & (J.) THE TRUTH ABOUT CRIME, sovereignty, knowledge, social order
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"

Jean Comaroff is the Alfred North Whitehead Professor of African and African American Studies and of Anthropology and an Oppenheimer Fellow in African Studies at Harvard University.
John L. Comaroff is the Harold W. Swift Distinguished Service Professor of Anthropology at the University of Chicago and a Research Professor at the American Bar Foundation.

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. R275
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.
Conrad (A.) REPARATION,
76pp., paperback, Cape Town, 2017. R235
"If it sounds dark, it is undeniably so. But it's also extremely funny: young playwright and director Ameera Conrad has a bright future ahead of her. Her writing is whip-smart, and her vision is brought to life with cracking energy by her equally youthful cast. The production takes satirical aim at practically everyone in South Africa, from the accent-shifting faux-revolutionaries to hand-wringing white people, but perhaps its sharpest barbs are reserved for the vapidity of Twitter activists." Rebecca Davis, Daily Maverick

Ameera Conrad is also co-curator, co-writer and performer in "The Fall", which won a Scotsman Fringe First Award for Writing at the Edinburgh Festival, The Stage's Ensemble Award for Acting, and was shortlisted for the Amnesty International Award for Human Rights in 2017.
Conrad (A.) et al THE FALL,
86pp., illus., paperback, Cape Town, 2017. R265
Collaboratively written by the original cast in response to the 2015 and 2016 South African #RhodesMustFall and subsequent student protests, "The Fall" documents the experiences of seven activists within the movement.

“With all the images of violence in the media, it can be easy to lose sight of what sustains the journey that began with Rhodes. The Fall takes back the narrative and invites the audience to look beyond the headlines and to see the real human stories. It is a powerfully acted play, a profoundly complex and moving portrait of students’ struggle to free themselves from the burden of the historical legacy they have inherited.” Professor Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela

“The Fall epitomises the pivotal role that the arts can play in building a society and recording history in the making...There is indeed a new world to be won in South Africa and these young actors are at the forefront of the battle.” Tracey Saunders, Cape Times

“…an insightful must for anyone who wants to understand just what the students are thinking and why things have things have turned violent.” Theresa Smith, Cape Argus
Conway (D.) MASCULINITIES, MILITARISATION AND THE END CONSCRIPTION CAMPAIGN, war resistance in apartheid South Africa

Cooper (B.) FLOATING IN AN ANTIBUBBLE FROM SOUTH AFRICA TO SALFORD, a mosaic of pictures and stories
198pp., colour illus., paperback, Trenton, 2016. R625
Brenda Cooper's book is a mosaic of literature, art, fiction and memoir, in which she draws on her experience of growing up in apartheid South Africa, on her Jewish family history, and on her research on African and postcolonial writing.

"The fragmented focis of the book is on African migration and Diaspora, coinciding with her own recent migration from Cape Town to Salford in Greater Manchester, with echoes of the migrations of her forebears from Eastern Europe and Russia to South Africa...The compass throughout the book is writers and artists, some white like Shapcott, most diasporic women, who are living in London, Antwerp or New York, but whose parents - one or both - were born in Africa." from the inside front cover

For many years Brenda Cooper was the Director of the Centre for African Studies and Professor in the English Department at the University of Cape Town, where she is now an Emeritus Professor. From 2009 to 2015 she lived in Salford, where she was an Honorary Research Associate at the University of Manchester.

Cooper (L.) & Ralphs (A.) eds. RPL AS SPECIALISED PEDAGOGY, crossing the lines
177pp., paperback, Cape Town, 2016. R400
This book offers a theoretical framework for understanding Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) "not simply as an assessment practice, but as a specialised pedagogy for navigating knowledge boundaries across different contexts." from the back cover

"The title 'RPL as Specialised Pedagogy' boldly states its unique contribution to the theory and practice of the Recognition of Prior Learning. By shifting the focus away from assessment, this work opens up a relatively under researched aspect of RPL. By using a common theoretical framework to investigate RPL in a range of contexts (higher education, workplace, and worker education), it represents a great leap forward in RPL research. Employing Cultural Historical Activity theory to interpret and unify findings from these diverse settings moves RPL research into the theoretical mainstream of current research in the broader field of workplace an adult learning." Dr Christine Wihak, Prior Learning International Research Consortium, Thompson Rivers University, Canada

Coppen (N.) ABNORMAL LOADS,
99 pp., paperback, Cape Town, 2011. R300
"Abnormal Loads" was co-produced by Think Theatre, The National Arts Festival, The Catalina UnLtd and the Playhouse Company. The production was commissioned as part of Neil Coppen's Standard Bank Young Artist Award for Theatre, 2011. It was first performed at the Rhodes Theatre, Grahamstown, in June 2011.

"In 'Abnormal Loads' director and playwright Neil Coppen warned of the consequences of regurgitating the past, which allows it to permeate and overshadow the present, thus pre-empting a situation in which it could be replayed. Coppen made his point through a tragi-comedy centred on a young coloured man brought up in a white family who boast of their colonial history - he eventually finds himself trapped in it and becomes subject to its consequences, though it is not of his own making. Coppen didn't simply juxtapose the past and present, he allowed history to run parallel to the present, eventually allowing the two to intersect, at its climax, in such a way that they become indistinguishable from each other. " Sunday Independent

"Coppen's accomplished dramatic comedy, 'Abnormal Loads', is a must-see. An amagamation of ghost story, love drama, historical epic and dark comedy, the events present and past unfold seamlessly." The Mail & Guardian

Neil Coppen works as an actor, writer, director and designer in Durban. His plays include "Suicidal Pigeons", "Two...", "The Beginning and the End" (co-written and performed with Clare Mortimer), "Tin Bucket Drum" and "Tree Boy".
Coppen (N.) NEWFOUNDLAND,
113pp., paperback, Cape Town, 2018. R360
"Neil Coppen's latest theatre-drama, 'Newfoundland (Buiteland)', had showcased the provocative and healing power of theatre. It is difficult to imagine a theatre production in which elements of Western ideology, African traditionalism, immigration, sexuality and identity not only co-exist, but feed into one another so successfuly. In a South Africa that often seems divided, 'Newfoundland' illuminates a way towards a shared identity." INK, US Woordfees, 2018

"'Newfoundland' contains all the elements and facets which originated in the amphitheatre of the classic Greeks such as ritual, confrontations and the exertions of fate, yet allowing the human being freedom of choice. Add to these rich-soil millennia of knowledge, development and technology and the result is sublime theatre - a life-changing production." The Theatre Times

Neil Coppen works as a playwright and theatre-maker in Durban. His plays include "Abnormal Loads", "Tin Bucket Drum", "Tree Boy" and "Izipopolo".

The biography of Albert Luthuli, in which Scott Couper argues that, contrary to contemporary nationalist understanding, Luthuli did not countenance abandoning non-violence in favour of armed struggle in 1961.

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

A novel set in a village in Mozambique where local authorities summon a hunter from the city to kill a marauding lion that has just killed a young woman. Based on a true story.

"Ever present in Mia Couto’s work is the burden of Mozambique’s recent past, the weight of memory that three decades of civil war impose on a population. With storylines and a lyrical style that crisscross between the material and spiritual worlds, his novels offer a subtle examination of the aftermath of political turmoil...Memories of a violent past colour the “real time” experience of the lion’s ongoing attacks. The dead are never far from the living, and while you can assume that the action is set in recent years, the villagers’ adherence to tradition and their constant awareness of the presence of their ancestors blur what borders there may be between the world we can see and that which exists in the shadows...'I don’t know what they’re looking for in the bush,' says Dona Naftalinda, wife of the district administrator, 'the lion is right here in the village.'” Ellah Allfrey, The Guardian

André du Toit, University of Cape Town

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

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

Hazel Crampton used oral histories and written accounts by early missionaries and traders who met Bessie's grandchildren to trace the story of Bessie and her descendants throughout the turbulent history of the Eastern Cape until the present day.

"The '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." Professor Francis Nyamnjoh, author of "Insiders and Outsiders, citizenship and xenophobia in contemporary southern Africa"

272pp., paperback, First SA Edition, Johannesburg, 2018. R240
First published in USA in 2018.

Tsitsi Dangarembga examines how the hope and potential of a young girl and a fledgling nation can over time become a bitter struggle for survival. The novel concludes the trilogy that began with "Nervous Conditions" and continued in "The Book of Not".

"A haunting evocation of the nature of small defeats. Only a writer steeped in Zimbabwean life - with her unflinching gaze on the individual, and with a social vision that brooks no sentimentality - could have given us the fraught heroine of this starkly written novel. Tsitsi Dangerembga proves yet again that hers is a maverick voice." A. Igoni Barrett, author of "Blackass" and "Love is Power, or Something Like That"

" Tsitsi Dangarembga's work, begun thirty years ago with her masterpiece, 'Nervous Conditions', reaches a provocative and brilliant new height with this extraordinary novel. 'This Mournable Body' demands answers from all who have suffered and survived the violence of the twenty-first century only to find history and injustice, cruelty and rebellion, woven into their souls. If all the doors are barred, can we still find our way free?" Madeleine Thien, author of "Do Not Say We Have Nothing"

“[A] masterpiece. . . . Dangarembga writes with intimacy and compassion; there’s a sharp poetic crack to the work that keeps the story from muddying in melancholy, as it might in the hands of a less cinematic writer.” The New York Times Book Review

Tsitsi Dangarembga is the author of two previous novels, "The Book of Not" and "Nervous Conditions", winner of the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize. She is also a filmmaker, playwright and the director of the Institute of Creative Arts for Progress in Africa Trust. She lives in Harare, Zimbabwe.

A reprint of Achmat Dangor's novel about an anti-apartheid activist's chance encounter with the policeman who, twenty years previously, had assaulted his wife in revenge for his membership of the African National Congress. This novel was shortlisted for the 2004 Man Booker Prize.

"This South African novel tells a powerful story of how the toxins of apartheid seep into the life of one small 'Coloured' family...a haunting story of a family disintegrating, wonderfully authentic on its context, gender and generation, its progress like slow dancing." Barbara Trapido, Independent

"'Bitter Fruit' is a subtly layered tale of truth, reconciliation and redemption...Following in the great tradition of Richard Rive and Alex la Guma, he is a writer who gives texture and grace to the present lives and historical legacy of South Africa's 500-year-old multi-ethnic society." Rachel Holmes, Literary Review

"In a series of fine characterisations, the dissonance and unease of South Africa are counterpointed with the inner lives of Silas, Lydia and Mikey. It is a textured piece of writing, redolent with the smells and sounds of close-packed living, and the hint that the violence and fanaticism are not likely to end provides a chilling coda." Elizabeth Buchan, Daily Mail

Achmat Dangor lives in Johannesburg. He is also the author of the novels "Kafka's Curse", ""Waiting for Leila" and "The Z Town Trilogy", as well as a short-story collection, "Strange Pilgrimages".

A collection of short stories by poet and novelist Achmat Dangor, author of "Kafka's Curse", "Bitter Fruit", "Waiting for Leila" and "Z Town Trilogy".

With these enlightening, bold stories he reaches in search of discovery of life beyond and below the surface - which is the mark of the real writer, out of reach of the imagination alone. He is that writer." Nadine Gordimer

Daniels (C.) ONWEER, (Gathering Storm), in collaboration with Abigail Mei, winner of the Baxter Zabalaza Theatre Festival, 2018
63pp., paperback, Cape Town, 2019. R200
A play about sexual abuse.

"Uncomfortable subjects often prove a rich vein to tap for drama, and Carlo Daniel's Onweer is a case in point. This riveting two-hander probes the theme of incestuous sexual abuse and its brutality, but despite the harrowing intimacy central to the work, there is nothing offensive in its presentation: no nudity, and the violence is suggested rather than enacted with physical realism. Everything is stylised, leaving the audience's imagination to supply what is requisite for reflection on this topic. Although scripted in Afrikaans, Onweer is readily accessible to everyone, because physical language speaks a universal idiom, while the simplicity of the plot obviates dependence on dialogue to understand the essence." Beverley Brommert, Cape Argus

Carlo Daniels is a Cape Town-based physical theatre-trained actor, singer and theatre maker. He was born and raised in Mitchell's Plein and trained at the Magnet Theatre.

A history of Zandvliet, a farm situated fifteen kilometres outside Stellenbosch, between the Hottentot Holland mountains and the Indian Ocean. Today it is made up of three parts: Sandvlei, Kramat and Macassar. In 1694 the Dutch East India Company banished Abadin Tadia Tjoessoep (1626–1699), more commonly known as Sheikh Yusuf of Makassar, an Indonesian Muslim of noble descent, with his family and retinue, to the Cape of Good Hope.

A novel about a Muslim family's experience of South Africa's transition to democracy, set in Cape Town in 1993.

In "An Imperfect Blessing", a novel that is sharp in its insights, yet warm in feeling, Nadia Davids gives us the tumultuous years between the end of white rule in South Africa and the Mandela presidency as seen through the eyes of a family from a Muslim community that is itself coming under pressure to adapt and evolve." J.M.Coetzee

Davie (G.) POVERTY KNOWLEDGE IN SOUTH AFRICA, a social history of human science, 1855-2005
334pp., paperback, New York, 2015. R290

It is detailed, lively, and full of sharp observation." Derek Attridge, Professor of English, University of York

"Nothing like this book has existed. It provides a hugely informative insight into Angola's extraordinary transformation, showing superbly how this state has monopolised politics and rebuilt its place in the world but has not, at any rate as yet, become a developmental state delivering widespread material benefits."

"In 'Ancestors and Antiretrovirals', Claire Decoteau draws together ethnographic fieldwork, unique insights into the experience of people suffering from AIDS at a time of callous governmental indifference, and a thorough reading of cultural politics to situate South Africa in the global economic system. Decoteau not only illuminates the many still baffling aspects of the epidemic and post-apartheid politics in South Africa, but challenges some of the core assumptions of Western social science. This is essential reading." Adam Ashforth, author of "Witchcraft, Violence, and Democracy in South Africa"

"This is a moving, scrupulously observed, and deeply thoughtful account of the interlocking tragedies of HIV/AIDS, poverty, and neoliberal politics in the new South Africa. It should be widely read in the global North, as it tells about basic issues of the contemporary world - not just in South Africa." Raewyn Connell, author of "Confronting Equality: gender, knowledge and global change"

Claire Laurier Decoteau is Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Illinois at Chicago and Research Associate in the Department of Sociology at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg.

This history of the ruined settlements in Mpumalanga, also known as Bokoni, the country of the Koni people, was first published in English in 2014.

Between Ohrigstad and Carolina, over 10 000 square kilometres of the escarpment are connected into a complex web of stone-walled homesteads, terraced fields and linking roads. The archaeological and historical research presented here demonstrates "that these settlements were at their peak between 1500 and 1820, that they housed a substantial population, organised vast amounts of labour for infrastructural development and displayed extraordinary levels of agricultural innovation and productivity", and that the Koni were part of a trading system linked to the coast of Mozambique and the world of Indian Ocean trade.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

216pp., pperback, Johannesburg, 2016. R250
"Join Leslie Dikeni in his intriguing journey into the contested state of the Kruger National Park in the early years of the democratic transition. He speaks to chefs and wardens, cleaners and government officials, ecologists and secretaries. As word of his research spreads, those whoses voices had been silenced and whose lives had been concealed in compounds and resource-starved villages seek him out, hoping that their experiences will at last be revealed. The biggest rest camp in Kruger and perhaps the most famous, is the place named Skukuza - the place from which people 'have been driven away'. What emerges from Dikeni's account is the contested nature of the Park and its history - issues that go to the heart of the post-apartheid dispensation and that remain unresolved." Karl van Holdt, Director of the Society Work and Development Institute, University of the Witwatersrand

Lesie Dikeni is a visiting research fellow at the School of Public and Development Management, University of the Witwatersrand and a research associate at the University of Pretoria.

Diphoorn (T.) TWILIGHT POLICING, private security and violence in urban South Africa
282pp., illus., maps, paperback, Oakland, 2016. R735
"'Twilight Policing' draws us into the world of security and reveals the gallery of people populating it. We learn about and appreciate difficult moral dilemmas in the harsh and precarious reality that is contemporary South Africa without losing sight of the greater conceptual and political implications. An impressive feat!" Steffen Jensen, author of "Gangs, Politics, and Dignity in Cape Town"

"In an age when security is being pluralized and degovernmentalized, and the lines between state and other sovereignties are becoming blurred, Tessa Diphoorn provides the tools for deconstructing contemporary relationships of rule, especially in post-apartheid South Africa. Richly detailed and compelling, 'Twilight Policing' is an important contribution to the ethnography of policing, with a particular focus on the relatively understudied domain of private police. It will be a valuable resource for scholars, teachers, and students of politics, violence, and law enforcement, in a variety of contexts worldwide." Daniel Goldstein, author of "Owners of the Sidewalk: security and survival in the informal city"

Tessa Diphoorn is currently Assistant Professor at the Department of Cultural Anthropology at Utrecht University.

207 pp., paperback, Cape Town, 2013. R190
A novel by playwright, theatre performer and satirist Pieter Dirk-Uys, inspired by his play, "Panorama".

"Uys brings home forcefully the psychological truth that those who engage in oppression - even if they do not take an active part in it - are prisoners of the system as much as the oppressed." The Philadelphia Inquirer
Distiller (N.) SHAKESPEARE AND THE COCONUTS, on post-apartheid South African culture
245 pp., paperback, Johannesburg, 2012. R250
Natasha Distiller examines historic and contemporary uses of Shakespeare in South African education and culture. She discusses the work of Can Themba, Bloke Modisane, Antony Sher, Stephen Francis, Rico Schacherl and Kopano Matlwa, amongst others, and includes the popular media and school textbooks.

"Natasha Distiller, of all scholars working on 'Shakespeare' and South Africa, asks the most interesting questions. She pushes us to think about our relationships not only to the oeuvre of a Renaissance poet-playwright, but to race, discourses of authenticity, national identifications, pedagogy, the institutions of literature in the country, and the place of South Africa in the global mediascape." Andrew van der Vlies, Queen Mary, University of London

"Distiller examines Shakespeare's place in South Africa's education and culture without universalising the contradictory forces that have made that position controversial and is thus able to provide both a fascinating account of current South African culture and a precise analytical model with which to challenge the concept of a single 'global' or 'post-colonial' Shakespeare." Kate McLuskie, Emeritus Professor of Shakespeare Studies, The Shakespeare Institute

Natasha Distiller is a writer and academic. She was, until recently, Associate Professor of English and Chief Research Officer of the Institute for the Humanities in Africa (HUMA) at the University of Cape Town.

134 pp., paperback, Johannesburg, 2012. R85
A title in The Youngsters series of pocket books that feature prominent young South African voices, edited by Mandy Wiener.

Quotes from the book:
"This book isn't about anything in particular. I am a conversationalist. I write like people talk. No fancy language; nor do I show how smart I am."
"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."

Dousemetzis (H.) & Loughran (G.) THE MAN WHO KILLED APARTHEID, the life of Dimitri Tsafendas
483pp., illus., paperback, Johannesburg, 2018. R290
Hendrik Verwoerd was murdered by Dimitri Tsafendas on 6 September 1966. Tsafendas was found unfit to stand trial on the grounds that he suffered from schizophrenia, declared a State President's patient and detained, first in prison and then in a mental institution, until his death in 1999. Although the Court found he had no political motive for killing Verwoerd, Dousemetzis demonstrates that Tsafendas was a communist, the son of an anarchist and committed to an independent Mozambique, the country of his birth.

"This research confirms that there was a cover-up. It shows convincingly that Tsafendas was a political revolutionary, whose assassination of Dr Verwoerd was motivated by a hatred of Dr Verwoerd and all he stood for. He was not an insane killer but a political assassin determined to rid South Africa of the architect of apartheid." John Dugard, Professor of Law, Centre for Human Rights, University of Pretoria

Driver (C. J.) BEFORE, a sequence of poems
40pp., paperback, East Molesey & Cape Town, 2018. R225
"How does one write poetry about a lost homeland that was both paradise and prison? Jonty Driver answers that question with 'Before', a haunting, virtuoso sequence which represents a kind of verse 'Bildungsroman' woven of unreliable encounters with a lost self. He creates deep meaning out of an impossibility of return, recognisable to anyone rendered homeless by the turmoil of the twentieth century. His South Africa can equally stand for my Eastern Europe, and so many other troubled parts of the world." Professor Vesna Goldsworthy, Serbian writer and poet

"There is an unusual honesty and courage about these poems. Beginning in memory or dream, or in the strange terrain between the two, they constitute an autobiography of the poet as a child and a young man. But recollection does not secure either the past or the continuity of the self. The voice in these poems is quietly but insistently questioning. And what it questions is not just the meaning of memory and dream, but the limits of experience itself. 'Before' is a work where a measured voice encounters what disturbs measure. These are poems of great emotional range and intelligence." Jon Cook

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

Nadine Gordimer

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."

First published in France in 2015 as L'animal Voyeur, art rupestre d'Afrique australe.

"This is a magnificant book, at once a poetic and a scholarly reclamation of the authority and integrity of the art in San painting. Renaud Ego has done what no one writing about these images has managed to do before, and that is to explode the boundaries that have contained and constrained rock art research. In his extraordinary prose, and beautiful photographs, he reanimates the paintings for us, reminding us that the pervasive forms of academic iconographical analysis have 'decomposed' them of their vibrant wholeness. It is a deeply moving publication." Pippa Skotnes, Professor of Fine Art: Centre for Curating the Archive, University of Cape Town and author of Unconquerable Spirit: George Stow's history paintings of the San

313pp., paperback, FIrst SA Edition, Johannesburg, 2016. R250
First published in the UK in 2016.

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

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

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

"This is an important book that deserves to be on the bookshelf of every South African concerned about the past, present and future of the country.

This oral history project gives us perspectives on nearly eight decades of the Eoan group's existence, and in so doing, lets us relive their passionate struggle through a particularly troubled past in South African history."

"'The Battle of Mamusa' reflects the grievous event in the Western Transvaal border culture context that contributed profoundly to the dissolution of the last functioning Korana polity. The narrative presented in this work is exceptional for at least two reasons: Firstly, for the thoughtful manner in which the intriguing concept of metaphors is applied in this study of historical ethnography cum ethnohistory. Secondly, for the skilful way in which the author relates the battle of Mamusa to how present-day Korana and neo-Khoisan communities, in a new context, are relating to their future in a post-1994 constitutional dispensation."

195pp., illus., maps, paperback, Johannesburg, 2017. R385

It is not without indignation, and not...insensitive to emotion and...the anger inside South Africa. It is a book that is not afraid of questions of affect. Eros and love, Erasmus urges, are not separable from the hard work of thinking. "Crain Soudien, CEO of the Human Sciences Research Council, South Africa

"Zimitri Erasmus questions the notion that one can know race with one's eyes, with racial categories and with genetic ancestry tests. She moves between the intimate probing of racial identities as we experience them individually, and analysis of the global historical forces that have created these identities and woven them into our thinking about what it means to be ‘human’...[She] argues for a new way of ‘coming to know otherwise’, of seeing the boundaries between racial identities as thresholds to be crossed, through politically charged acts of imagination and love" from the back cover

Evans (M.) BROADCASTING THE END OF APARTHEID, live television and the birth of a new South Africa
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.

273 pp., illus., paperback, Johannesburg, 2009. R270
A historical exploration of white resistance politics which "seeks to help us understand how non-racialism emerged and the various forms it took in doing so in the 1950s, the decade that forged the ANC in its current form." from the introduction

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

Eyre (B.) LION SONGS, Thomas Mapfumo and the music that made Zimbabwe
362pp., illus., hardback, d.w., Durham, 2015. R635
A biography of Zimbabwean singer, composer and bandleader Thomas Mapfumo. Born in 1945 in what was then the British colony of Rhodesia, Mapfumo created a new genre of music called 'chimurenga' (struggle music), based on traditional Zimbabwean music, including the sacred 'mbira', and African and Western pop music. The Rhodesian government banned his music and jailed him. In the 1980s and 1990s he grew increasingly critical of Robert Mugabe's dictatorship and in 2000 he left Zimbabwe and now lives in exile in Eugene, Oregon, USA.

"In 'Lion Songs' the reader follows Thomas Mapfumo's career as a singer/songwriter and uncompromising social critic through the last gasp of colonialism in Rhodesia, the liberation struggle, and the aftermath of independence. A skilled storyteller, Banning Eyre integrates his perspective on these events with his experiences performing as a guitarist in Mapfumo's bands, deftly interweaving his accounts with the perspectives of Zimbabwean, European, and North American observers and interlocutors. Against the backdrop of Zimbabwe's political history and the global flows of the popular music market, Eyre provides an intimate view of the bands' touring musicians and dancers. He explores their artistic practices, their interpersonal relationships, and the relentless challenges they face in Zimbabwe, in Europe, and in America, where Mapfumo currently lives in political exile. 'Lion Songs' is also the history of the creative genius of Mapfumo himself, and the moral complexities that surround his life." Paul Berliner, author of "The Soul of Mbira: music and traditions of the Shona people of Zimbabwe

Writer and guitarist Banning Eyre is senior editor and producer of the public radio programme Afropop Worldwide. He is also the author of "In Griot Time: an American guitarist in Mali" and "Playing with Fire: fear and self-censorship in Zimbabwean music".

Insightfully wrought, the book fills a much-needed gap in educational sociology in South Africa." Linda Chisholm, Professor, Centre for Education Rights and Transformation, University of Johannesburg

"Aslam Fataar's work with concepts of mobilities and space is enormously generative, providing a way for teachers, principals, communities and policy makers to engage with the ‘complex ecologies’ of young people’s learning in urban schools. As an astute policy analyst, he also well knows the systemic barriers in the way of achieving this...This is an exciting and provocative book. It pushes an important conversation about the next phase of education in South Africa and takes the global conversation about pedagogical injustice to new dimensions."

Forsyth (O.) AGENT 407, a South African spy breaks her silence
331pp., b/w & colour illus., paperback, Johannesburg, 2015. R260
Olivia Forsyth was recruited as a Security Branch officer in 1981 and sent to Rhodes University to infiltrate pro-ANC structures. Deeply involved in student politics, she led various campaigns opposing the apartheid regime. In 1985 she approached the ANC in Zimbabwe and offered to be a double agent, but was interred in Quatro prison camp in Angola. Chris Hani and Ronnie Kasrils intervened and had her transferred to a safe house in Luanda, hoping to exchange her for ANC prisoners on Death Row in South Africa. Forsyth managed to escape the ANC and sought refuge at the British embassy. When she returned to South Africa she claimed that her defection to the ANC had been a successful ploy by the Security Branch to infiltrate the ANC, but has since maintained that this claim had been a misinformation campaign. Forsyth currently lives in Italy.

"Described by her publishers as “South Africa’s most notorious apartheid spy”, Forsyth manages to recall the music she danced to and what she served at parties, but not details of police raids by her Security Branch colleagues on the leftist publications with which she worked. She can offer a comprehensive list of what she read in an ANC prison but can’t describe exactly how she betrayed her student comrades. The highlights of her spy career appear to have been stealing a set of car keys so duplicates could be made and mistakenly moving a bright red flowerpot from one window to another. For those who are still puzzled by Forsyth many years later, this is most unsatisfactory." Phillip de Wet, Mail & Guardian

“'Reinventing Hoodia' provides a well-researched, critically engaged account of a fascinating contested object of indigenous knowledge and intellectual property. Its illuminating account of hoodia across a range of scales makes significant conceptual and empirical contributions to feminist legal studies and to the history and philosophy of science.” Anne Pollock, author of "Medicating Race: Heart Disease and Durable Preoccupations with Difference"

“Foster’s fascinating account of complex negotiations between the indigenous San peoples, South African scientists, lawyers, and Big Pharma makes a valuable text for classes in law, the history, philosophy, and social studies of science, women’s studies, and anti-colonial studies. It also expands the horizon of fruitful research projects in these fields.” Sandra Harding, author of "Objectivity and Diversity: Another Logic of Scientific Research"

“Foster’s interdisciplinary work on Hoodia is both novel and timely. She offers a valuable analysis of science and its relationship to indigeneity.” Jennifer A. Hamilton, author of "Indigeneity in the Courtroom: Law, Culture, and the Production of Difference in North American Courts"

Gavin Capps, University of the Witwatersrand

Friedman (S.) POWER IN ACTION, democracy, citizenship and social justice
288pp., paperback, Johannesburg, 2018. R350
Steven Friedman argues that democracy is a product of collective action and only works when every adult has an equal say in the public decisions that affect them.

"Intellectually superb! Friedman exposes the ideological zealotry of mainstream democratic theorists, exposing both their philosophical weaknesses and political hypocrisy." Adam Habib, former Vice Chancellor and Principal, University of the Witwatersrand

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.
