Puzzled by the difference between a coalition and confidence-and-supply? Confused about how McKinsey, Trillian and a bunch of corrupt individuals at Eskom fleeced the utility? Don’t know your Nhlapo Commission from your Moerane Commission? The third edition of Jacana’s popular guide has all the information you need to navigate your way through our complex political scene. With more than 300 entries covering important terms, events, policies, groups and individuals, it’s an excellent source of current and historical data. Highlighting the power brokers and stars as much as those who are on their way down or captured, this valuable quick research tool is for anyone interested in where South Africa is at - and why. What are the links between the Auditor-General and the Asset Forfeiture Unit? Why do Black Twitter and its political influencers matter? Who are the diehard reds, and who switched from communism to capitalism? Who goes by the nickname of “Mkhuluwa” (old man), and who as “His Excellency”? South Africa is the only African country that is a member of the G20, but which bright minds represent it there and in other international arenas? The country is highly-ranked in platinum, palladium and gold output, but which are the trade unions and who are the revolutionary leaders fighting on behalf of workers? You’ll find those answers here too. Everything you should know, starting with the shack-dwellers’ movement, Abahlahi baseMjondolo, and ending at Jacob Zuma, is inside. And as a bonus, there’s a quiz at the end to test your head. The A-Z of South African politics was compiled and written by newspaper editor and former investigative journalist Kashiefa Ajam, former editor of three newspapers and award-winning journalist Kevin Ritchie, former newspaper editor and award-winning journalist Lebogang Seale, former newspaper editor and award-winning author Janet Smith and top news editor and award-winning journalist Thabiso Thakali.
