South African insults on everything - from apartheid to Zuma - by
everyone from J. M. Coetzee to Daily Sun readers. Michael Herzfeld
has argued in his study of Greek villagers that humour emanates
from what we are most embarrassed about - not from conventional
sources of national pride. This is the first time that South
African humour has been explored in this way. This title
incorporates a wide range of opinion, from comedians, literary
heavyweights, serious political commentators, satirists, sports
writers to the kind of people generally not taken seriously, like
the ANC Youth League and You readers. South Africans of all people
need a good laugh. It is healthy both psychologically and
physiologically to laugh at ourselves. At its core, this title is
about democracy, or the democratic spirit - because one of the
truest tests of democracy is the tolerance of invective and
nastiness. So, while the book sets out to entertain, there is also
a serious intent.
