In Rule Of Law, Glynnis Breytenbach reflects back on her career as a prosecutor, including specific cases she has tried, and on her life to provide a fascinating commentary on the importance of the independence of judicial institutions and the precariousness of this independence.
Her current challenges are directly linked to how outspoken she is and how she continues to campaign fiercely for the rule of law in this country.
Kabelo Mabalane, South Africa's number one self-proclaimed 'pantsula for life' shares his journey and insights, from being a multi-platinum-selling musician, through the highs and lows of drug addiction, to finding hope and life again through running (eight Comrades marathons and counting) and his faith. In I Ran for My Life, this ten-time SAMA award-winner, TV presenter, athlete and entrepreneur talks about growing between Soweto and the suburbs, the back story behind his phenomenal music career, and how getting into running literally saved his life. Along with his lessons for life, Kabelo shares his thoughts and advice on staying in shape, being prepared for anything, and how to build a spirit of endurance in everything you do.
South Africa has one of the highest murder rates in the world, and a femicide rate that is more than five times the world average.
In this book, Dr Nechama Brodie looks at the story of femicide in South Africa over the past forty years. She interrogates police, public health and media data, exploring the history of violence against women in an entirely new way that contextualises and challenges the state and public response to what has, in reality, been a crisis for decades.
Johannesburg: a city of thieves and dreamers, home to more than four million inhabitants spread out over an area larger than greater London... An engaging and authoritative history that follows the story of the city through its spaces and communities - from the city centre to Joburg's expanding suburbs.
With dedicated chapters about Lenasia, Alexandra and the Southern Suburbs - together with Soweto, the CBD, Hillbrow, the far north and the central suburbs - it offers an inclusive history of Joburg, written by contemporary journalists and academics and featuring a selection of songs, poems and expert articles that give voice to the city's diverse peoples and reflect its shifting social landscapes.
The Joburg Book also includes hundreds of historical photos, fifteen reference maps, recommended itineraries and places of interest in and around the city, together with contact numbers and web addresses. This updated edition for 2014 has updates of new spaces, such as Constitution Hill and the Gautrain, as well as new tours and excursions.
The Cape Town book presents a fresh picture of the Mother City, one that brings together all its stories. From geology and beaches to forced removals and hip-hop, Nechama Brodie, author of the best-selling The Joburg book, has delved deeply into the hidden past of Cape Town to emerge with a lucid and compelling account of South Africa's first city, its landscape and its people.
The book's 14 chapters trace the origins and expansion of Cape Town - from the City Bowl to the southern and coastal suburbs, the vast expanse of the Cape Flats and the sprawling northern areas. Offering a nuanced, yet balanced, perspective on Cape Town, the book includes familiar attractions like Table Mountain, Kirstenbosch and the Company's Garden, while also giving a voice to marginalised communities in areas such as Athlone, Langa, Mitchells Plain and Khayelitsha. Many of the images in the book have never been published before, and are drawn from the archives of museums, universities and public institutions.
This beautifully illustrated, information-rich book is the definitive portrait of the wind-blown, contradictory city at the southern tip of Africa that more than three million people call home.
