Kasinomics is a book as eclectic, mysterious and colourful as the places and people it explores. eKasi, the lokasie, the South African township, once an apartheid ghetto, is today an amazingly transformed place. This township today is an eclectic mix of mansions, shacks, spaza shops, rocking taverns, hawkers, taxis and hot wheels. In this kasi there are vibrant businesses, energetic people, a tightly networked social community and abundant hope. That is not to say there isn't extreme poverty, suffering and dissatisfaction, particularly on the peripheries in the huge shack settlements, but to paint the place as a slum is a massive mistake. Kasinomics attempts to cast a light on the invisible matrix at the heart of South Africa's informal economies and the people who live in them. Living and doing business in African marketplaces requires an ethos uniquely suited to the informal, to the invisible, to the intangible. Kasinomics will take you down those rural pathways, weave between claustrophobic mazes of shacks, browse a muti market, visit a spirit returning ceremony and save money with gogo in a stokvel among many more people and places. After almost twenty years of focusing on marketing to the informal sector, GG Alcock, CEO of specialist marketing company Minanawe, showcases a number of groundbreaking and very successful case studies in this invisible informal world. His vivid anecdotes and life experiences and how they link to understanding and inspiration for business ideas will make you gasp, laugh and shake your head in wonder.
The Land Is Ours tells the story of South Africa's first black lawyers, who operated in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In an age of aggressive colonial expansion, land dispossession and forced labour, these men believed in a constitutional system that respected individual rights and freedoms, and they used the law as an instrument against injustice. The book follows the lives, ideas and careers of Henry Sylvester Williams, Alfred Mangena, Richard Msimang, Pixley ka Isaka Seme, Ngcubu Poswayo and George Montsioa, who were all members of the ANC. It analyses the legal cases they took on, explores how they reconciled the law with the political upheavals of the day, and considers how they sustained their fidelity to the law when legal victories were undermined by politics. The Land Is Ours shows that these lawyers developed the concept of a Bill of Rights, which is now an international norm. The book is particularly relevant in light of current calls to scrap the Constitution and its protections of individual rights: it clearly demonstrates that, from the beginning, the struggle for freedom was based on the idea of the rule of law.
A tyrant has been stopped. A new adversary, far more dangerous than the last, has emerged. The war has only just begun. "It has been four months since I murdered my husband, Eric Dane. Four months since the battle that was supposed to change our world. The year is 2044, and although we may have won the battle, the war is far from over. We believed that our mission was accomplished, that freedom was finally within our grasp. We were wrong. We now face a new danger, one without a face, without a name. An unknown enemy who is far more dangerous than Eric Dane ever was. Who is this adversary lurking in the shadows and pulling all the strings? My father is missing and Aidan is gone. I have to dig deep to find the strength to go on, but with the support of Reed, strong, fearless, and my equal in every respect, I feel that nothing is impossible. We are exploring new frontiers and finding allies in the most unlikely group of heroes. With a NUSA convoy let loose in the Rebeldom to hunt me down, I must prepare to make the ultimate sacrifice to save the people I love and have sworn to protect. My name is Rebecca Davis. I am a super-soldier, a mother, a daughter, and a friend. And I am the leader of The Legion. More importantly, I am a woman who will not stop until this war is finally, truly over." The Legion is the gripping sequel to The Legacy (book 1 of The Legacy Trilogy) with more twists and turns than ever before, and an ending that cries out for the final chapter.
These stories are first-hand experiences of Mike Hardwich who is both a vet and a farmer of many years. The events described have not been dramatized in any way. He gives an account of his work in the film and advertising industries before computer-generated special-effects were available. He also relates his efforts with game capture when equipment and sedatives were extremely primitive - this presenting special challenges and requiring extraordinary bravery. He received a commision to get a lion and a lamb to lie down together to promote peace at a time of heightened racial tension in South Africa. Other events described are the birth of the first orang-utan in Africa, a C-section on a marmoset, complications with farm animals, problems with elephants, racehorses and their crooked owners and obstacles resulting from African superstition. --Cover.
