What kind of president will Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma be if she is chosen at the ANC’s December 2017 congress? She has been fairly media-averse and hasn’t granted many interviews in the past few years, but taking a closer look at her history does provide some clues about the kind of leader she is.
In this book, journalist Carien du Plessis looks at Dlamini-Zuma’s early years, education and involvement in the struggle; her role as a cabinet minister under all four presidents of democratic South Africa; and her achievements as African Union Commission chairperson.
The book considers her feminism and political philosophy; tracks her presidential ambitions and campaigning; and explores how her personal relationship with one of her most important backers, President Jacob Zuma, will influence her leadership.
South Africa’s Rugby Legends celebrates those players who have become truly immortal in the eyes of their fans – the greatest South African rugby players of the amateur years.
This beautifully illustrated book covers the immense achievements of those players who ran out against the mighty AllBlacks, the cunning Aussies and the fiery Welsh, among others, and played their way into rugby folklore. These are the best of the best, the players who make you say, "Thosewere the days!"
From Fairy Heatlie, who played for South Africa against the British in 1891, to the genius Danie Craven in the 1930s, the inspirational Hennie Muller of the 1940s and 50s, and the charismatic Morné du Plessis of the 1980s, the author explores in fascinating detail what made these men the unforgettable names they are today. With historical photographs from the author’s personal collection, some of which have never been published before, this is the book every rugby fan will want for his or her personal collection.
Na die ongelooflike sukses van RSG se Hoe Verklaar Jy Dit? is dit niks minder as gepas om met hierdie tweede volume Suid-Afrikaners se nuuskierigheid oor die wêreld verder te bevredig nie.
In Hoe Verklaar Jy Dit? 2 bring Danny Fourie weer ’n gerf van die interessantste vrae en antwoorde byeen wat deur RSG se kundige medewerkers in die gewilde radioprogram behandel is. En dit help die leser natuurlik om die wêreld om ons minder vreemd te maak. Hoe verklaar jy ons honger na inligting en ons dors na kennis? Die antwoord is eenvoudig: Ons is mal daaroor om antwoorde te kry, selfs al is daar geen oënskynlike voordeel daarin nie.
Is dit werklik nodig om te weet wat ’n Jerusalem-kriek of ’n sweepspinnekop is? Waarom die son nie uitbrand nie? Hoekom ’n mens se oë traan as jy uie sny? Hoe die Richter-skaal werk? Wie en wat die Florisbadmens is? Wat links- en regshandigheid bepaal? Van al die soogdiere is ons die enigste wat lewenslank nuuskierig bly. Daarom sal Hoe Verklaar Jy Dit? 2 jou nog meer fassineer.
What will it take to turn South Africa around? In this insightful and provocative book, Frans Rautenbach proposes a complete overhaul of policy thinking, and provides fresh arguments that effectively address South Africa’s unemployment, race problems and lack of education. He weighs the pros and cons of rent-seeking, the free market, affirmative action, unions, decentralisation and other issues, and in doing so tackles such contentious topics as racism and white privilege, political correctness, state funding of education, and mounting evidence that trade unions substantially suppress employment growth.
In South Africa Can Work, Rautenbach argues, for example, that the only antidote to foster growth and prosperity is free enterprise, which has, significantly, not been tried here; that tripartite, corporatist negotiations to manage the economy of a country (as in the Netherlands, Sweden or Germany) have invariably failed in multi-ethnic societies like South Africa; and that countries – whether rich, middle income or poor – where the bulk of university funding comes from the private sector not only have higher-quality, but also significantly more accessible, tertiary education.
Written by a labour lawyer with a proven track record in his field, South Africa Can Work speaks effectively to a cross-section of readers of all disciplines, and brings sorely needed good news.
South African interior designers and decorators are as good as, if not better than many of their British, French and American counterparts. Indeed, their work is sought-after for its peculiar freshness, African-ness and originality, and many of them regularly accept commissions abroad and have their work published in international interiors magazines. Style Icons is a remarkable, varied collection of places designed and decorated by tremendously talented people, some of them very well known, others less so. Interestingly, although they're all so different and varied in style, their roots are essentially in sync and they have a single voice.
This is the first time such a collection has been put together and it provides a unique opportunity to compare such talent all in one volume. This book features 12 South African interior designers, each with their own unique style and approach to design. In their own words, each icon talks about their inspirations and influences, their stylistic range, their likes and dislikes, and how they see themselves and their work. They address the difficult question of what makes them South African and how their work brings that across, focusing on a few specific projects, and discussing the challenges and opportunities presented by each one.
Carefully selected, beautiful full-colour photographs of various aspects of the projects discussed illustrate each designer’s signature style, giving a feel for their work and capturing the essence of what it is they are striving to achieve in the African context.
The featured designers in Style Icons are: Stephen Falcke, Boyd Ferguson, John Jacob Zwiegelaar, Graham Viney, Catherine Raphaely, Charlotte Daneel, Julian and Trevyn McGowan, Karen Roos, Maira Koutsoudakis, Michele Throssell, Stefan Antoni and Toni Tollman.
Vulture soup, anyone? Or how about diesel-dipped dog biscuits as a side to some fried python? If you prefer something less severe, then how about having a braai on top of a submarine out in the middle of the ocean?
The South African Special Forces, or Recces, are known for being fearless and tough. Not only must they pass a notoriously gruelling selection course, but once they have qualified as operators, they often spend weeks in the bush living off rat packs and whatever else they can find. This cookbook with a difference combines stories about their experiences in the field during the Border War with recipes from the bush and the sea, and even a few from the kitchen. Fortunately, most meals are edible! These recipe stories offer insight into the scope of activities of the different reconnaissance units, including 4 Recce at Langebaan, 5 Recce at Phalaborwa and 1 Recce at Durban.
Readers will also learn about some of the important life skills needed to be a member of the Special Forces as well as Recce philosophy, such as staying in the moment and being adaptable. This book feeds into the public’s fascination with this elite unit and will help to break down some of the secrecy around the Recces.
The text message arrives in the small hours of the night. It's just three words: "I need you".
Isa drops everything, takes her baby daughter and heads straight to Salten. She spent the most significant days of her life at boarding school on the marshes there, days which still cast their shadow over her. At school Isa and her three best friends used to play the Lying Game. They competed to convince people of the most outrageous stories. Now, after seventeen years of secrets, something terrible has been found on the beach. Something which will force Isa to confront her past, together with the three women she hasn't seen for years, but has never forgotten.
Theirs is no cosy reunion: Salten isn't a safe place for them, not after what they did. It's time for the women to get their story straight...

Die Groot Drie bied 'n sonderlinge blik op die opkoms, hoogbloei en uiteindelike ondergang van Afrikaner-nasionalisme vanuit die perspektief van drie wereldklas-satirici: D.C. Boonzaier, T.O. Honiball en Fred Mouton. Die Burger is in 1915 in die lewe geroep om as mondstuk te dien vir Afrikaners wat aan die begin van die 20ste eeu op hul kniee gedwing is deur die Anglo-Boereoorlog, verstedeliking en grootskaalse armoede. In die eerste honderd jaar van die koerant se bestaan het net die drie kunstenaars diens gedoen as spotprenttekenaars. Boonzaier het skerp en raak aanvalle op opponente van die Nasionale Party geloods, en die karikatuurkuns ten volle bemeester; die veelsydige Honiball het lesers se empatie gewek met sy speelse styl; en Mouton se uitbeelding van tipies Suid-Afrikaanse tonele het van hom 'n gewilde humorskepper en belangrike meningsvormer gemaak. In hierdie boek gee Francois Verster, Naspers se maatskappy-argivaris, 'n onderhoudende historiese oorsig van die bydrae wat elk van die spotprenttekenaars gelewer het.

What with the rising cost of travel, the scary exchange rate, the cost of visas, traffic congestion on the roads to the coast, the environmental cost of air travel and – generally – a lack of time, perhaps we should revisit the concept of holidays. Do we really have to travel halfway across the world or halfway across the country for a holiday to ‘count’? After all, what makes a holiday a holiday anyway? What makes it special? Two days of genuine relaxation within 100km of your home is worth more than a week in a glamorous resort if you’re stressing out about work, are in semi-constant contact with the office, or are trying to figure out how you are going to resuscitate your credit card when you get back. A holiday is a state of mind.
It’s a series of special moments that you will treasure forever. And that’s what’s so great about staycations. No long queuing and interviews for visas, no long queues at the airport, no long flights, and no long, thousand-yard-stare, endless drives through the Karoo. By choosing a staycation, you minimise the boring, long bits of holidays, and maximize the fun, interesting bits that make for treasured memories. And, hey, you save money, save fuel, and pile up carbon credits at the same time. What’s not to love? And you would be amazed at how much there is to do so close to the city – stunning hikes and country stays, big five safaris, awesome golf, amazing adventures, romantic retreats, and genuinely fun family-friendly resorts where your kids can act their age, and so can you.
So, check it out – you’ll find amazing golf staycations, adventure staycations, safari staycations and a range of fabulous one-tank-cations spreading out from the city like the petals of a daisy. North, south, east, west – close to home is best.

The target of her search is Carlos Botha, a skilled operative who may represent a major threat to national security.
Jade traces Botha to a rundown motel in the West Rand, but she’s not the only one looking for him. Someone has put a hit out on Botha. Jade is forced into an uneasy alliance with him in order to learn more.

Free Fall recounts how and why the present education crisis has become the leading cause for black university students in South Africa. Probing deep beneath the surface of the crisis, the book reveals uncomfortable truths about colonial- and apartheid-era education, and traces the tangled web of connections between foreign and South African business interests, the apartheid government, and the role of universities in propping up a white elite and co-opting a subservient black class to their cause.
It brings to life the people and ideas that, over a century-and-a-half, have created a perfect storm for the present crisis in South African higher education. Malcolm Ray combines intellectual rigour with the intimacy of narrative non-fiction, introducing readers to the main protagonists since the end of slavery in 1834, through the rise of missionary education as an instrument of indoctrinating and subjugating black people, and into the apartheid era. Beyond apartheid, the book details how policy blunders by the democratic government since 1994 have conspired with the past to fuel South Africa’s slide into increasing economic and social disarray.
It is the story of the failure of South Africa's democratic government to deal with major fault lines fissuring higher education, and the circumstances that led to the #RhodesMustFall and #FeesMustFall movements. The book ends on a high note, answering the question: ‘What now?’ This book aims to be the beginning of the solution.
In Washington, D.C., on a night full of rain, a woman is struck down and killed by a hit-and-run driver. But she is not just any woman - she is the assistant to the head of the secret White House department known only as the Basement. And she had secrets of her own.
In the Virgin Islands, former president Jake Cazalet receives a warning. He is recuperating on a diving trip after successfully helping Sean Dillon and the rest of the 'Prime Minister's private army' defeat an Al Qaeda operation in London. But though AQ may be weakened and facing competition from other terrorist upstarts, it is far from dead - and it intends to prove it. Soon the ripples from these two events will spread and overlap, not only in Washington but around the world.
Everyone involved will find themselves in the most desperate battle of their lives - and the midnight bell will toll.
In this riveting sequel to the instant New York Times bestseller Maestra, femme fatale Judith Rashleigh once again leads readers into the mesmerizing and dangerous underworld of Europe’s glamorous elite.
Since opening her own art gallery in Venice, Judith Rashleigh—now Elisabeth Teerlinc—can finally stop running. She’s got the paycheck, lifestyle, and wardrobe she always dreamed of, not to mention the interest of a Russian billionaire. But when a chance encounter in Ibiza leads to a corpse that is, for once, not her own doing, she finds her life is back on the line—and she’s more alone than ever. It seems Judith’s become involved with more than just one stolen painting, and there is someone else willing to kill for what’s theirs.
From St. Moritz to Serbia, Judith again finds herself maneuvering the strange landscapes of wealth, but this time there’s far more than her reputation at stake. How far will Rage take Judith? Far enough to escape death?
The second installment in an unforgettable trilogy, Domina is the next sexy, ruthless, and decadent thriller from mastermind L. S. Hilton, and an adventure that will push Judith further than even she imagined she could go.

The book showcases 95 garden butterflies and moths, showing their full life cycle, including pupa, eggs and caterpillar. Stunning photography and point-form text ensure accurate identification of each stage in the cycle, and an interesting introduction discusses such topics as the extraordinary process of metamorphosis and the curious habits of these mercurial insects.

Sometimes surrender is more courageous than resistance.
Kate Fordham arrived in the sunlit city of Granada a year ago. In the shadow of the Alhambra, one of the most beautiful places on Earth, she works as a waitress serving tourists in a busy bar. She pretends she's happy with her new life - but how could she be? Kate's alone, afraid and hiding under a false name. And fate is about to bring her face-to-face with her greatest fear. Five centuries ago, a message, in a hand few could read, was inscribed in blood on a stolen scrap of paper. The paper was folded and pressed into one of the Alhambra's walls. There it has lain, undisturbed by the tides of history - the Fall of Granada, the expulsion of its last Sultan - until Kate discovers it. Born of love, in a time of danger and desperation, the fragment will be the catalyst that changes Kate's life forever.
Court Of Lions bridges time, interweaving the stories of a woman who must confront her unimaginable past and a man who must face an unthinkable future, bringing one of history's great turning points to life in an epic saga of romance and redemption.
