She uncovers horrifying details of abuse and damage, but can tell no one because of the ethics of confidentiality. Her investigation will lead her client and herself into the mind and hands of a dangerously disturbed man.
In die debuutroman (wat in Engels publiseer is as Dark whispers) onthul een van Megan Wright, 'n sielkundige, se kliente dat sy deur 'n snydokter wat in ginekologiese operasies spesialiseer, geskend is. Dit word duidelik dat die gewraakte operasie geen ongeluk was nie. Die vrywaringsbrief wat die pasient vooraf moes teken, maak dit egter onmoontlik om die betrokke dokter te laat vervolg. Toe Megan haar kom kry, is sy daarop uit om die dokter te ontbloot en te keer dat hy nog vrouelewens vernietig. Veral toe sy uitvind dat hy 'n hele paar ander pasiente ook geskend het, soms so erg dat hulle nooit sal kan kinders he nie. Nie een van die klagtes wat teen die dokter gele is, was suksesvol nie. Verwikkelinge in Megan se persoonlike lewe word meesterlik met die verhaal se hoofspanningslyn vervleg.
This is the third book in the series by Joanne Macgregor, but can also be read as a stand-alone. Both Turtle walk (2011) and Rock steady (2013) were very popular and Turtle walk had a reprint in 2014. The eco-warriors are now in Grade 10 at Clifford House boarding school but this year, cracks are beginning to appear in their friendships, romances and their belief in themselves. When Samantha Steadman joins ecological activists to block fracking in the Karoo, she expects that her best friends will be right alongside her in the fight. But Nomusa takes a very different view of the controversial issue and Jessie, under the influence of a glamorous new girl at the school, is too obsessed with her weight and appearance to care about ecology. Samantha feels very alone as she tries to deal with pressure from boys, school and her poison dwarf of a science teacher, all while uncovering a personal mystery from the past and struggling to save the Karoo – as well as her friendships – from splitting down their fault lines.
Samantha Steadman, and her best friends smart-mouthed Jessie Delaney and politician s daughter Nomusa Gule, are back at boarding school, in grade 9, and they are up against a whole new set of challenges.Their creepy new Science teacher the Poison Dwarf - takes delight in tormenting Sam, and she s started counting and checking everything in a way that has her friends worried about her sanity. Add to that Sam s determination to uncover and stop the illegal trade in San rock art, a blossoming new romance (or two), and a dangerous survival competition in the mountains which will endanger the trio s lives, and Sam will need all her wits and courage to stand steady. Together they will need to find the strength to cope, and the hope that comes from knowing that individuals can make a difference.The book is aimed primarily at middle-school children, between the ages of 9 and 14 years. Girls are the chief protagonists in the story, so presumably it would mostly attract female readers, but the story is not very girly . The girls are strong characters who do their own rescuing and make a real difference in the world."
When Samantha Steadman starts high school at a boarding school in the Ukahlamba Drakensberg mountains, little does she know that she will soon be engaged in an ecological war for the survival of the endangered leatherback turtle. Their adventures range from dangerous night-time skirmishes with illegal fishermen, to crazy antics for television cameras. Samantha and her friends - rich and sassy Jessie Delaney, and cabinet minister’s daughter Nomusa Gule – take the fight from the classroom to the open seas. Back at school, they have to deal with romances and heartbreaks, a joint musical production with the neighbouring boys' school, encounters with an eccentric bunch of teachers, conflicts with parents and skirmishes with bitter rivals. Together they will need to find the strength to cope, and the hope that comes from knowing that individuals can make a difference.
This book is a history of claims to the Zambezi, focussed on the stretch of the river extending from the Victoria Falls downstream into Lake Kariba, which today constitutes the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. It is a story of 150 years of conflict over the changing landscape of the river, in which the tension between the Zambezi's 'river people' and more powerful others has been central. The Zambezi is one of Africa's longest and most important rivers - securing access to its waters and control over its banks, traffic and commerce were crucial political priorities for leaders of precolonial states no less than their colonial and postcolonial successors. The book is about the ways in which the course of the Zambezi has shaped history, its shifting role as link, barrier or conduit, the political, economic and cultural uses of the technological projects that have transformed the landscape, and their legacies in the conflicts of today. By investigating how the claims made today by Zambezi 'river people' relate to longer history of claims and appropriations, the book contributes to long-standing debates over the relationship between geography and history, landscape and power.BR> JOANN MCGREGOR is a Lecturer in Geography at University College London Zimbabwe: Weaver Press (PB)
The recent explosion of interest in African environmental history has resulted in a rich new literature. This collection focuses on the social and cultural dimensions of the field, revealing the importance of standing back from today's controversies over the state of the African environment, to explore the historical contexts in which knowledge and ideas about nature, conservation and landscape were formed.

Violence has powerfully shaped the history of Matabeleland from the 1890s to the 1980s, and silence has surrounded the history of this region of Zimbabwe, excluding it from national memory. This text aims to break the silence and redress the imbalance of Zimbabwe's national history. North America: Heinemann; Zimbabwe: Weaver Press
"The papers in this volume cast new light on Zimbabwe's difficult recent history through the experiences of the large numbers of Zimbabweans now settled across the world, mostly in South Africa and Britian. Especially in South Africa, building popular support for the Zimbabwean diaspora is an urgent political challenge, and one for which this book provides plenty of resources. At the same time it offers a creative and intelligent contribution to the wider academic literature on diasporas." . Prof. Jennifer Robinson, UCL
"The volume is to be welcomed as a considerable addition to the growing literature on African migrants and refugees in Europe and elsewhere. It brings together research conducted by a range of scholars from different disciplines and of different backgrounds, including many from Zimbabwe itself...Comparing the Zimbabwean 'diaspora' in depth in two important and different contexts (the UK and South Africa) gives it significant added value." . Prof. Ralph Grillo, University of Sussex
"This rich collection of case studies reveals the complexities of Zimbabweaness and diasporic identities and demonstrates how these particular diasporas are inserted into layers of interpretative schemes both in South Africa and UK. This focus on historical intertwining and the layers of interpretation that it creates, is an important contribution to Diaspora studies and studies on transnationalism that tend merely to explore contemporary issues of exclusion/marginalization or 'political opportunity structures' in the host society." . Prof. Simon Turner, Danish Institute for International Studies
Zimbabwe's crisis since 2000 has produced a dramatic global scattering of people. This volume investigates this enforced dispersal, and the processes shaping the emergence of a new "diaspora" of Zimbabweans abroad, focusing on the most important concentrations in South Africa and in Britain. Not only is this the first book on the diasporic connections created through Zimbabwe's multifaceted crisis, but it also offers an innovative combination of research on the political, economic, cultural and legal dimensions of movement across borders and survival thereafter with a discussion of shifting identities and cultural change. It highlights the ways in which new movements are connected to older flows, and how displacements across physical borders are intimately linked to the reworking of conceptual borders in both sending and receiving states. The book is essential reading for researchers/students in migration, diaspora and postcolonial literary studies.

Transnational Histories of Southern Africa's Liberation Movements offers new perspectives on southern Africa's wars of national liberation, drawing on extensive oral historical and archival research. Assuming neither the primacy of nationalist loyalties as they exist today nor any single path to liberation, the book unpicks any notion of a straightforward imposition of Cold War ideologies or strategic interests on liberation wars. This approach adds new dimensions to the rich literatures on the Global Cold War and on solidarity movements. The contributors trace the ways that ideas and practices were made, adopted, and circulated through time and space through a focus on African soldiers, politicians and diplomats. The book also asks what motivated the men and women who crossed borders to join liberation movements, how Cold War influences were acted upon, interpreted and used, and why certain moments, venues and relations took on exaggerated importance. The connections among liberation movements, between them and their hosts, and across an extraordinarily diverse set of external actors reveal surprising exchanges and lasting legacies that have too often been obscured by the assertion of monolithic national histories. Tracing an extraordinarily diverse set of interactions and exchanges, Transnational Histories of Southern Africa's Liberation Movements will be of great interest to scholars of Southern Africa, Transnational History, the Cold War and African Politics. The chapters were originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Southern African Studies.
