[JACOB ZUMA; SOUTH AFRICAN BROADCASTING CORPORATION]
Ungumuntu Ngabantu: Jacob Gedleyihlekisa Zuma. He Is a Human Being Through Other Human Beings
([Johannesburg]: SABC Business Development, 2009). . DVD video in pictorial case. The biography and philosophy of Jacob Zuma emerge through this series of interviews and speeches in English and isiZulu, the latter partially with English subtitles. Running time: 123 minutes. As new. There are four programmes: The Man from eNkandla; Jacob Zuma - Ungumuntu Ngabantu; Jacob Zuma - The People's President; Jacob Zuma - The inauguration. Much emphasis is laid on Zuma's roots in the Nkandla district of rural KwaZulu-Natal. "This documentary locates the President of the country, Jacob Gedleyihlekisa Zuma, within the context of African history, African culture as well as contemporary South Africa. Jacob Zuma is traced back to the Royal lineage of the Nxamalala nation (Isizwe sakwa Nxamalala). It is in that part of history where the documentary portrays the gift of leadership of masses of people, the talent for the welding together of a nation, and the role and place of the Nxamalala nation within the Zulu Kingdom founded by King Shaka. The documentary was shot before Jacob Zuma became president of South Africa. It looks at this struggle icon away from politics and locates him at a place were it all began - his homestead at a small village called Inkandla. The DVD concludes with the day of his inauguration as President of South Africa on 9 May 2009, the culmination of a long fought battle to the highest office in the country.".

ALEXANDER, ZONIA
The Icu, the First Decade of Struggle
(Bloemfontein: University of the Orange Free State, unpublished MA-thesis, 1995). . Octavo, red rexine, gilt, ll. (v) + 85, printed recto only. 'This paper investigates the struggles of the Black workers in the urban areas between the period 1919-1929. The reasons for researching this topic necessitated me to examine the dualistic role The Industrial and Commercial Workers' Union of Africa (ICU) played on the economic scene with regard to trade unionism as well as party politics which involved a wide spectrum of political partners such as the APO, the ANC and the Communist Party on the one hand and the Nationalist party and the liberals on the other hand. This role of the ICU did not only shape the course of the independent Black trade union movement but it was instrumental in the development and growth of Black Nationalism in South Africa.'.

BARNARD, L. D. (EDITOR)
Konflik en Orde in Internasionale Verhoudinge
(Johannesburg: Perskor, 1978) 062801371X. . Presentation inscription from editor on front free endpaper. 221 x 149 mm; wrappers; pp. (xiv) + 298. Wrappers partially sunned; regular browning throughout. Good condition. Afrikaans text. Several expert studies of international relations and related matters, particularly with regard to their relation to South Africa. Former State President C R Swart writes in his foreword: "Byna soos 'n tifoon het daar in die jongste jare … 'n staatkundige dreuning en dwarrelwind op die Republiek afgestuur. Suid-Afrika en sy huishoudelike vraagstukke is in die draaikolk van buitelandse bemoeiing vasgeruk. Nou het Suid- en Suider-Afrika diep betrokke geraak in die stormvloed wat veroorsaak word deur die verwarrende toepassing van inherent botsende maatstawe en die flagrante huigelary in die hedendaagse wêreld se internasionale verhoudinge. … In hierdie publikasie deur die Universiteit van die Oranje-Vrystaat is daar kundige en ingeligte verhandelinge deur verskeie kenners oor allerlei aspekte en gesigspunte op internasionale gebied. In die huidige omstandighede moet dit as besonder tydig verwelkom word. Dit sal ongetwyfeld dieper en kundiger belangstelling in die besondere aangeleenthede aanwakker en as bron vir verdere studie dien.".

BEINART, WILLIAM
Twentieth-Century South Africa
(Cape Town: Oxford University Press, 1994). . Paperback, laminated pictorial wraps, pp. xvi + 293. Text very slightly browned. Near fine condition. 'Africa in the twentieth century. It draws on the rich and lively tradition of radical history writing on that country and, to a greater extent than previous accounts, weaves economic and cultural history into the political narrative. Apartheid and industrialization, especially mining, are central themes, as is the rise of nationalism in the Afrikaner and African communities. But the author also emphasizes the neglected significance of rural experiences and local identities in shaping political consciousness. The roles played by such key figures as Smuts, Verwoerd, de Klerk, Plaatje, and Mandela are explored, while recent historiographical trends are reflected in analyses of rural protest, white cultural politics, the vitality of black urban life, and environmental decay. The book concludes with an analysis of black reactions to apartheid, the rise of the ANC, and an assessment of the chances of a stable political future for a post-apartheid South Africa.'.

CALLAND, RICHARD
Anatomy of South Africa. Who Holds the Power?
(Cape Town: Zebra Press, 2006) 1868729036. . 230 x 150 mm; laminated pictorial wrappers; pp. xxii + 330, incl. index. Earlier owner's name signed on half-title. Very good condition. "Politics in South Africa is alive and vibrant, although the media often fail to reflect this. Anatomy of South Africa brings that political world to life. It presents a vivid, up-to-date picture of how power operates in the new South Africa and who really makes the decisions around here. It is people who make politics, and this book is about personalities as well as the institutions they belong to. Richard Calland takes the reader along the corridors of power - from the presidency and the cabinet to the judges and the media, via the labyrinth of the ANC-led alliance - mixing vivid anecdote with solid research. The result is an accessible yet authoritative account of who runs South Africa, and how. The title is borrowed from Anthony Sampson's influential work about who ran Britain, Anatomy of Britain. Like Sampson before him, Calland has a fly-on-the-wall, insider's approach to the people who control the power that affects us all.".

Previous owner's discreet hand-stamp to front free endpaper; light browning to page edges. Very good condition. Afrikaans text. The author was the daughter of F. S. Malan. François Stephanus Malan (1871 - 1941) was an editor, politician and cabinet member. 'The major turning-point in his life came when on 2.9.1904 he addressed a political meeting in Cape Town on 'The true ideal of South African politics'; he made a strong plea for a united South Africa under the British flag... From that time Malan strove for his political ideal... In May 1908 Malan, as one of the Cape delegates, attended the inter-colonial conference in Pretoria at which, as a direct result of preliminary work carried out by Smuts, the decisive steps were taken for a meeting of the National convention on closer union. Malan was also one of the Cape delegates at the National convention, which held its first meeting in Durban in October 1908. To record the proceedings of the convention and his views on certain questions, Malan, from 7.10.1908, kept an important diary which was published in 1951.' - DSAB I, pp. 496-497.

COUPER, SCOTT
Albert Luthuli. Bound by Faith
(Pietermaritzburg: University of KwaZulu-Natal Press, 2010) 9781869141929. . 230 x 148 mm; laminated pictorial wrappers; pp. xi + (i) + 291, incl. index; plates. Very good condition. "Many myths assert that Chief Albert Luthuli, former President of the African National Congress (ANC), launched the armed struggle on his return to South Africa after receiving the Nobel Peace Prize. This misinterpretation sparks what is arguably one of the most relevant and controversial historical debates in South Africa. In what is the first substantive biography of Luthuli, Scott Couper challenges a nationalist-inspired perspective and argues that the iconic leader did not countenance the initiation of violence in December 1961. Luthuli's ecclesiastical tradition, Congregationalism, imbedded within him the primacy of democracy, education, sacrificial service, multiracialism and egalitarianism, propelling him to the heights of political leadership. These same attributes rendered Luthuli obsolete as a political leader within an increasingly radicalised, desperate and violent environment. By not supporting the ANC's armed movement, his political career proved to be 'bound by faith'.".

Very good condition. Afrikaans text. 'The dissolution of the Federation of the Rhodesias and Nyasaland signified the failure of a positive experiment in creating a multiracial state. Two of the members, Northern Rhodesia and Nyasaland, have already become independent black states, which many Europeans felt obliged to leave since they could not visualise a future there for themselves and their children. One of the people who emigrated is Guy van Eeden. He was born in Northern Rhodesia, the child of a missionary. He took a leading part in the affairs of the country and was a member of Parliament for fifteen years - first of the Northern Rhodesian and then of the Federal Parliament. He experienced the events which led to the founding and the dissolution of the Federation, which are described in this book. It was he who in 1954 strongly recommended that the Federation be divided into black and white areas - but to no avail. Eventually he abandoned most of his material possessions in order to retain his belief in the future in another country - the Republic of South Africa.'.

FEINSTEIN, ANDREW
After the Party. A Personal and Political Journey Inside the Anc
(Johannesburg: Jonathan Ball Publishers, 2008) 9781868422623. . Author's signed presentation inscription to title page. 232 x 152 mm; laminated pictorial wrappers; pp. xiv + 287, incl. index. Near fine condition. "Andrew Feinstein became an active supporter of the African National Congress in the 1980s, and campaigned energetically for the party in the first democratic elections. He was elected to parliament where he rose swiftly through the ranks, earning the label 'Mr Clean' for his unstinting work against corruption. But his feelings of euphoria at being part of the new South Africa slowly soured. Disappointed by the constant jockeying for power and the views held by President Thabo Mbeki on HIV/AIDS, Feinstein's disillusionment grew as he sought unsuccessfully to investigate the corruption surrounding the infamous arms deal. Isolated from his former comrades, some of them senior members of government, Feinstein was ultimately forced to choose between his principles and the party he had so admired. After the Party reveals the explosive details of what really happened in the arms deal: the personalities, the cover-up and the corruption. It also provides insight into current South African politics and battles within the ANC.".

"If racial peace, harmony, forgiveness, reconciliation, justice, equality, and all the rest can come to be in South Africa after Apartheid and all that went before, why can't it happen everywhere? it was asked. That was then, the mid-1990s, in the immediate aftermath of South Africa's first multiracial elections. Now, during the 2000s, more and more people both inside and outside the country are beginning to see the Republic of South Africa as shaping up to be more of a big disappointment or a sad shame than a miracle. White, Black, Coloured and Asian people didn't all suddenly come to love each other with the death of Apartheid and coming to power of a multiracial political party.".
