319 pp., paperback, Cape Town, 2014. R290

"This is vintage Denise Ackermann. As always her writing is fresh and lively, her theology perceptive and challenging, and her spirituality profound and caring. The reader could not ask for more. But there is more. Denise brings to her reflections a creative freedom and conviction that is only possible for someone who has lived what she now writes, and is able to write what she has embodied and taught with courage and compassion." John de Gruchy, a Hulsean Lecturer at Cambridge and chair at Robert Taylor Chair of Christian Studies

"The scholar can often be abrasive and intimidating. In this book, Denise Ackermann is erudite and yet alluring and gentle. The reader imagines a gentle smile playing round her lips while she exposes the absurdities of the many facets of male chauvinism and the injustice in the treatment of those who are not heterosexual. She is a formidable and yes (sic) a charming adversary." Desmond Tutu

Denise Ackermann is Extraordinary Professor of Systematic Theology at the University of Stellenbosch. He other books include "After the Locusts" and "Claiming Our Footprints".

Breathtaking in scope, 'An Umbrella for the Rainbow Nation' is nevertheless easily accessible to lay reader and expert alike, enabling all of us to breathe and not panic. The challenge implied in this inspiring book is both simple and elusive: to find the leadership in public life to take these evidence-led recommendations and chart a developmental path for all South Africans that enhances the prospects for cohesion, growth and prosperity for all." Jonathan Jansen, Vice-Chancellor, University of the Free State

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

477 pp., paperback, London, 2013. R220
A new novel by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, about teenage sweethearts who go their separate ways when one goes to study in the USA and the other seeks a new life in London, and who meet again in Nigeria many years later.

"There are some novels that tell a great story and others that change the way you look at the world. 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.

"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

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.

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

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

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

Peter Alexander in Professor of Sociology at the University of Johannesburg.

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

"...a major contribution to intellectual history in a volume that recognizes the role played by six women anthropologists who were major contributors to the creation of a distinctive South African voice in anthropology." Elizabeth Colson, University of California, Berkeley

"Andre Bank's insightful scholarship provides a much-needed revision not only to the history of South African anthropology, but also to the history of socio-cultural anthropology in general." Nancy Lutkehaus, University of Southern California

Bank (A.) & Bank (L.J.) eds. INSIDE AFRICAN ANTHROPOLOGY, Monica Wilson and her interpreters
354 pp., illus., paperback, Reprint, Cambridge & New York, (2013) 2014. R270
A biography of South African anthropologist, Monica Wilson.

"This book is among the best written volumes I have read. It uncovers an 'unofficial' history of anthropology from South Africa. The most important relationships are between Monica and Godfrey Wilson and the black South Africans, Zambians and Tanganyikans who engaged with them as informants, interpreters and clerks, but also as culture brokers, patrons and intellectuals. 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

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

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

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

388 pp., paperback, Ontario, 2013. R180
"'The Last Mentsch' is a rich, poignant and often hilarious celebration of story-telling. It effortlessly combines the historical novel and the picaresque to create a portrait of South Africa's fledgling Jewish community, of the emergent nation and of a range of endearing and infuriating eccentrics." Professor Michael titlestad, University of the Witwatersrand

"A great deal of research has gone into establishing the authenticity of the period, the landscapes as the depiction of the panoply of well-known historical characters such as Bleek, Rhodes and Scotty Smith. The latter two are encrusted in their own mythology, but Bayer manages their entirely plausible cameo appearances. 'The Last Mentsch' is not only persuasive, it is eminently readable, interesting and entertaining." Professor Elsie Cloete, University of the Witwatersrand

Journalist Peter Bayer worked for the Rand Daily Mail and The World. In recent years, he has lectured in journalism and communications. He lives in Johannesburg.

Focusing on local veterinary knowledge and therapeutics by African owners in such depth through 200 interviews in five areas opens up an original field of knowledge and practice." Anne Digby, Oxford Brookes University

"By incorporating cultural, scientific, national and political perspectives, the authors provide background to the implementation of relevant policies and reveal the stark resource and knowledge divide between rural and commercial sectors." Arthur Spickett, Onderstepoort Veterinary Institute, Pretoria

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

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."

It is especially innovative in discussion of the diverse Anglophone communities that dominated the cities in their early years and Bickford-Smith is equally interesting on African urban culture." William Beinart, African Studies Centre, University of Oxford

"Blomkamp and Jackson want it every which way: The actuality-video threat of 'The Blair Witch Project', unstoppable violence like 'ID4', plus Spielberg's otherwordly benevolence: facitiousness, killing and cosmic agapé. This is how cinema gets turned into trash." Armond White, New York Press

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

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

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

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

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

335 pp., paperback, Johannesburg, 2012. R195
A novel about a forty-something, lonely, burnt-out editor driven to searching for love on the Internet - until a dog enters her life.

The writing is witty, sometimes gritty, sometimes laugh-out loud funny, but always underscored by an honesty and tenderness that lays bare the reader as much as the characters. Bregin has accomplished that rare achievement; to create a page-turner that is also beautifully and carefully written." Rosamund Kendal, author of "The Angina Monologues"

"Bregin's vividly drawn characters are totally 'South African' in accent and aspiration; totally recognisable wherever love, loss, and strong conviction are the stuff of vulnerable humanity." Michael Chapman, author of "Southern African Literatures"

Elana Bregin is also the author of the novels "Slayer of Shadows" and "Shiva's Dance". She lives in Durban.

336pp., b/w & colour illus., map, paperback, Cape Town, 2016. R320

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."

"Finally, a book about evolution that's as readable as a 'Rolling Stone' article without any loss of depth or rigour. On the contrary, even as he stage-dives into the most controversial subjects, Brooks' rock and roll writing style still comes fast and feverish with the facts, a dazzling tour of the hidden evolutionary logic behind modern life."

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.

Browde (D.) THE RELATIVELY PUBLIC LIFE OF JULES BROWDE,
310pp., illus., paperback, Johannesburg, 2016. R240
The biography of South African advocate and judge Jules Browde (1919-2016), a prominent human rights lawyer under apartheid, and a friend of Nelson Mandela. 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"

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

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

It takes the form of a series of "conversations" between Bordieu and (mostly) Marxist intellectuals and theorists, including Marx, Gramsci, Fanon, Freire, Beauvoir, Mills and Burawoy. Karl von Holt's essays reflect on the significance and relevance of these "conversations" for South Africa and the global South.

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

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

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

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

The book also includes some of Alexander's seminal writings on multilingualism.

"For many of us who were privileged to hear Neville Alexander in moments such as are captured here, this book will strike a chord of deep sadness, sadness for the loss of that wonderful capacity he demonstrates to traverse the arcane and the ordinary and in that to show the extraordinariness of being simply human, not black or white, male or female or any of those numbing binaries which so seem to capture the limited imaginations in which much of our South African experience is rendered." Crain Soudien, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, University of Cape town

He uses a richly grounded empirical analysis to shed light on a key puzzle with important political stakes: How are implausible win-win scenarios sustained despite their manifold contradictions, and what kinds of critical work are needed to puncture them? An excellent read." Tania Murray Li, author of "The Will to Improve: governmentality, development, and the practice of politics"

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

There are critical lessons to be learned about African music and culture through the activities carefully framed by the author in the reading and listening that leads to them. There is nothing like it in the field. It is a textbook, a guide to deep listening, a study of the innovative realization of ILAM's hope to fulfill Hugh Tracey's 1960s vision for repatriating the music he recorded to its communities by creating textbooks designed to teach African music in the schools."

Chasi (C.) HARD WORDS, on HIV/AIDS communication
87 pp., paperback, Johannesburg, 2011. R80
A philosophical reflection on how communication around the HIV/AIDS pandemic fails to address or express the depths of human experience and suffering.

"With consciousness of the need to heedfully establish grounds for common justice in this saddest of eras, it is worthy to raise questions as regards messages on HIV/AIDS. If the kindness of those who try to make things better could respect the sacredness of our living, then their words would not be received with offence. Sending out messages which seek to fundamentally change how another relates to life - to sex, to love, to lack of opportunities, to all the infinite things that HIV/AIDS calls to mind - should be approached with due humility and humanity. Instead, what we unfortunately see too much of is a lack of respect for the choosing other." pg. 11-12

Colin Tinei Chasi is a senior lecturer at the Department of Communication and Media Studies, School of Communication, University of Johannesburg.

Very good stuff." Professor Tony Hawkins, Correspondent, Financial Times

Duncan Clarke has "three decades experience inside the oil industry worldwide, exposure to 44 African countries, and more years spent studying and observing the continent's economies and political economy." from the author's acknowledgements

Russell Samolsky, University of California, Santa Barbara

"One rarely comes across work of such intelligence and imagination. This book is beautifully written, and one finds oneself forever being caught by wonderful and unpredicted connections, turns of phrase, the ease and acuity with which insights from disparate fields are brought together and developed."

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

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."

Coetzee (C.) ACCENTED FUTURES, language activism and the ending of apartheid
192 pp., paperback, Johannesburg, 2013. R290
"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."

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.

Cole (J.) BEHIND AND BEYOND THE EISELEN LINE,
148 pp., b/w & colour illus., paperback, Cape Town, 2012. R310
The story of fifty-seven women and men and fourteen children who, in March 1982, arrived at St George's Cathedral seeking a place where they could pray, fast and seek refuge from the apartheid government, which wanted to deport them to the "homeland" of Transkei. They were living "illegally" on a piece of land on the edge of Old Crosroads in Nyanga township outside Cape Town and hoped through their actions to draw attention to their situation.

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

Land and housing activist, writer and social historian Josette Cole is currently an Honorary Research Associate at the Archive and Public Culture Research Initiative at the University of Cape Town and Chief Executive Officer of the Development Action Group (DAG).

259 pp., paperback, London, 2011. R170
A debut novel about a young mixed-raced Nigerian psychologist who wanders the streets of Manhattan.

"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.

"Witchcraft and the Limits of the Law: Cameroon and South Africa" by Peter Roitman,
"On Politics as a Form of Expenditure" by Achille Mbembe.

"These essays offer provocative insights into the extent of violence and disorder in various situations and the complicated and often ineffectual, performative, and even complicit role played by police and other agents of state order. There are numerous forms of disorder presented here, from more conventional criminality to vigilante justice to state violence. These are rich and fascinating glimpses into a world of disorder that follows its own forms of order." Sally Engle Merry, New York University


"This major collection, with a masterful introduction by the editors, presents new ways to understand how the globalized legal order bears the signs of its colonial heritage while providing a hyperlegal space for new negotiations about order, crime, and justice in many postcolonial societies. It offers a feast of empirical insights that bring the anthropology of legality into the very centre of postcolonial studies, places the South African experience in a highly original global perspective, and shows that the relationship between law and legality is both contradictory and generative."

"'Ethnicity, Inc.' will be a watershed for anyone looking for new ways to explain our neoliberal world. This extraordinarily lucid book is one of the most ambitious, wide-ranging, and thought-provoking pieces of anthropological scholarship written over the last few decades; it sets a standard other scholars can only hope to emulate." Matti Bunzi, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Drucilla Cornell is Professor of Political Science, Women's and Gender Studies, and Comparative Literature at Rutgers University. She also teaches at Birbeck Sollege, University of London and the University of Pretoria, South Africa. Her other books include "uBuntu and the Law: ideals and postapartheid jurisprudence" and "The Dignity of the Constitutional Court of South Africa: cases and materials, volumes I & II".

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.

Couto (M.) CONFESSION OF THE LIONESS,
192pp., hardback, d.w., London, 2015. R385
First published in Portuguese as "A Confissão da Leoa" in 2012. Translated into English by David Brookshaw.

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

Mia Couto was born in Mozambique in 1955. He works as a biologist and lives in Maputo. His other books in English include "Voices Made Night" and "Sleepwalking Land".

"A sometimes riotous, sometimes tragic, always brilliant journey through South Africa's battlefields, this book ignites a thirst for more of the rough texture of history and the fallible people who shaped it. A master of research, observation and humour, Couzens takes you on a journey into our blood-soaked birth." Ray Hartley, Sunday Times.

Literary and social historian Tim Couzens is also the author of "The New African, a study of the life and work of H.I.E. Dhlomo", "Tramp Royal, the true story of Trader Horn" and "Murder at Morija".

Cowell (A.) PERMANENT REMOVAL,
264p., paperback, Johannesburg, 2016. R225
A thriller about an American diplomat who returns to South Africa after a long absence and tries to uncover an unsolved mystery from the country's apartheid past.

"So you thought the bad old days had died with the birth of the new, that the whispers and lies of the past had been forgotten in the freshly minted land of Mandela. You'd be dead wrong. Alan Cowell's high-speed thriller rips a wormhole in the rainbow nation and throws us back to a time when right and wrong were fixed in blood and love came off second best. In a broodingly atmospheric story that piles on the suspense, Cowell lays bare the fragile human hearts that beat uncertainly in the aftershock of apartheid. There are no heroes here except dead ones. And even they're not perfect." Charlotte Bauer, journalist and writer

Journalist Alan Cowell was based in - and expelled from - South Africa for The New York Times during the apartheid era. His coverage won him the George Polk Award. He lives in London. He is also the author of "Killing the Wizards, wars of power and freedom from Zaire to South Africa" (1992)

André du Toit, University of Cape Town

"With brisk economy, this book provides a fresh and compelling explanation of the origins of rural poverty in nineteenth-century South Africa.

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

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

"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"

This volume covers the last three decades of the nineteenth century, when South Africa was transformed from a primarily rural and traditional society into an increasingly urban and capitalist one, and examines the role theology, and especially church doctrine, played in the construction of modern South Africa.

291pp., b/w & colour illus., paperback, First SA Edition, Johannesburg, 2015. R280
First published in the UK in 2015.

Ricardo Soares De Oliveira documents the rise of Angola's economy: the government, backed by an alliance with China and working with hundreds of thousands of expatriates, has pursued an agenda of state-led national reconstruction which has resulted in double-digit growth.

"A lucid, clear and remarkably well-informed look at a particularly complex and so often absurd country, served by writing of a rare literary quality. Brilliant." José Eduardo Agualusa, Angolan novelist

"A stunning book, which takers the lid off Angola in a way that I have never seen equalled for any African state. Essential for understanding Angola, and African development, and especially the 'African miracle', more widely." Christopher Clapham, University of Cambridge

"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." Christopher Cramer, SOAS, University of London

Ricardo Soares De Oliveira is Associate Professor in Comparative Politics, University of Oxford, a Fellow of St Peter's College, Oxford, and a Fellow of the Global Public Policy Institute, Berlin.

He died in a car accident in 1989 and was the first "non-white" person to be buried in Johanneburg's "whites-only" Westpark cemetery.

Delius (P.), Maggs (T.) & Schoeman (A.) FORGOTTEN WORLD, the stone-walled settlements of the Mpumalanga escarpment
157pp., b/w & colour illus., maps, paperback, Johannesburg, 2014. R270
The history of the ruined settlements in Mpumalang known as Bokoni, the country of the Koni people.

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 in "Forgotten World" 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" (from the back cover), and that the Koni were part of a trading system linked to the coast of Mozambique and the world of Indian Ocean trade.

Peter Delius is Professor of History at the University of the Witwatersrand. His latest books include "Mpumalanga: history and heritage" and "Mpumalanga, an illustrated history", both with Michael Hay, and "A Long Way Home: migrant worker worlds 1800-2014", co-edited with Laura Phillips and Fiona Rankin-Smith.
In the 1960s archaeologist Tim Maggs did pioneering research on the precolonial black farming communities in the Free State. Retired to the Western Cape, he continues to cooperate in research projects on the Later Stone Age and early farming communities in the Western Cape, North West and especially Mpumalanga.

Desai (A.) WE ARE THE POORS, community struggles in post-apartheid South Africa
153 pp., paperback, New York, 2002. R265
"One of South Africa's leading activist intellectuals has produced a remarkable book detailing growing resistance to neoliberalism in post-apartheid South Africa. Desai gives a moving picture of desperate conditions in post-apartheid South Africa, where things have not changed for most of the people. But this is also a stirring account of a courageous fightback, the fight that is being globalized as we challenge corporate globalization." Dennis Brutus

Ashwin Desai follows the growth of a community resistance movement that began in Chatsworth, Durban, where residents protested against evictions and electricity and water cut-offs. The resistance spread other communities around South Africa, such as Mpumalanga, Wentworth and Tafelsig, and united in massive anti-government protests at the times of the UN World Conference Against Racism in 2001.

Ashwin Desai teaches at the Workers' College in Durban, and is a newspaper columnist and community activist. He is also the author of "Arise Ye Coolies" and "South Africa: Still Revolting".

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."

A novel by playwright, theatre performer and satirist Pieter Dirk-Uys, inspired by his play, "Panorama".

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."

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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." Professor Bruce Janz, University of Central Florida
