In some ways, it was the first modern war, one that saw the invention of trench warfare, concentration camps and guerrilla fighting, as the highly organised British army squared up against the motley band of farmer-hunter-soldiers that made up the loose-knit Boer army. It was also a conflict that defined the political future of a united South Africa.
Pretorius gives the best outline of the war, focusing on aspects such as the participation of large numbers of black people that were hitherto ignored.
Country of My Skull By Antjie Krog This is a personal and compelling account of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, which investigated the horrors of apartheid repression, written by the acclaimed Afrikaans poet.
A bestseller in South Africa and successful abroad, the book has been reissued with additional material. It looks at Cape Town in colonial times, under Dutch and then British rule, from the earliest small settlement founded to grow vegetables for passing ships to the brink of the 20th century.
A plethora of paintings, maps, drawings and photographs illustrate the book and make it very accessible.
A companion volume, by the same authors, looking at the city today in the same format, is Cape Town in the Twentieth Century: An Illustrated Social History. The murder is the work of assassins rather than robbers; a single shot behind the ear, nothing but his gun stolen, no forensic evidence is left at the scene. Journalist Jonny Steinberg travels to the midlands to investigate. Steinberg finds that much of the story lies in the immediate future.
He has stumbled upon a festering frontier battle. Right from the beginning, it is clear that the young white man is not the only one who will die on that frontier, and that the story of his and other deaths will illuminate a great deal about the early days of post-apartheid South Africa. He befriends Sizwe Magadla, a young local man who refuses to be tested for HIV despite the existence of a well-run testing and anti-retroviral programme.
It is this apparent illogic that becomes the key to understanding the dynamics that thread their way through a complex and traditional rural community. For this, he was arrested in , tried and sentenced to prison for high treason.
This, his memoir of his seven years in jail — two of them in solitary confinement — captures the full horror of life in one of the worst penal systems in the world. It was originally published in Fiction Disgrace By JM Coetzee The crowning achievement of a distinguished literary career, Disgrace won Coetzee the Booker Prize for the second time, making him the first writer to achieve that distinction — and occasioned much debate within South Africa.
It is a bleak but always compelling story of the new South Africa struggling to come to terms with itself, addressing issues of guilt, responsibility, meaning and survival, written in prose of crystalline sharpness.
A surprise bestseller in South Africa as well as abroad.
Cry, The Beloved Country has sold millions of copies around the world. Her stories are perhaps the best introduction to her work: they span the s to the s in this volume British edition , moving from the city to the countryside and from the highest ranks of society to the lowest.
With delicacy and power, they cast a bright light on the extraordinary lives led by South Africans of all races, and the nature of their interactions across colour lines and within them. The Heart of Redness By Zakes Mda Mda came to prominence as a dramatist in the s; now he has flourished as a novelist.
This, his second novel, won the Sunday Times Fiction Prize, and has become a school setwork. In this unique book he brings ideas - political and philosophical - to the fore to understand a contemporary political conundrum.
He outlines the persistent, unresolved problems characterizing contemporary South Africa: poverty and quality of life statistics that are appalling for a middle-income country, levels of inequality that make South Africa one of the most unequal places in the world, skewed economic and political representation that reproduces elites rather than generating opportunities for all and an electoral system that implements the idea of proportional representation so literally that it undermines meaningful representation.
Are South Africans Free? Hamilton argues that freedom as power in South Africa does not depend on good will, charity or duty, and it goes beyond the complete realization of the political and civil liberties currently safeguarded in its constitution.
Such change will depend on courageous leadership, active citizenship, new forms of representation and a macroeconomic policy that offers radical redistribution of actual and potential wealth. Table of contents IntroductionChapter 1: Political Freedom? His description of how the ANC has lead South Africa into what statistically seems to be a worse off position than the country they inherited is rigorous and largely without fault He argues his case with analytical acuity, imagination, and rare precision.
His axiom that freedom only comes from power to assess one 's own situation correctly and then control the agents one uses to go against society's norms to change that situation provides useful and easily comprehensible tools for analysis It demonstrates the value of political theory for understanding the threats posed to democracy by the absence of genuine freedom, at the same time as it challenges political theorists to look beyond the often idealised world of human rights discourse to the concrete material, social and political conditions of South Africa.
