    30 Degrees South Publishers 2014; US$ 15.00

    Interest in KwaZulu-Natal’s battlefields - especially those of the Anglo-Zulu War - has soared since the film Zulu first screened in 1964, followed by Zulu Dawn in 1979 (the centenary of the Anglo-Zulu War). During the centenary, the famous battlefields of Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift were made ‘tourist-friendly’ by the then Natal... more...

    Gerald Duckworth & Co 2012; US$ 8.74

    From the Romans to the Arab Spring North Africa is surrounded by the Mediterranean, the Atlantic and, to the south, the sands of the Sahara.

Onto this complex background, Barnaby... more...

  • Emily Hobhouse and the Reports on the Concentration Camps during the Boer War, 1899-1902by Birgit Susanne Seibold

    Columbia University Press 2011; US$ 26.99

    The black spot—the one very black spot—in the picture is the frightful mortality in the Concentration Camps. I entirely agree with you in thinking, that while a hundred explanations may be offered and a hundred excuses made, they do not really amount to any adequate defence. I should much prefer to say at once, so far as the Civil authorities are... more...

    Zed Books 2015; US$ 29.95

    A lively and argumentative analysis of contemporary South African politics that shows how the dream of a 'rainbow nation' consensus has fractured, making space for new political possibilities to emerge. more...

    Jonathan Ball Publishers 2015; US$ 16.04

    The twentieth century has been one of enduring, rapid and fundamental social and political change.

The century started with a brief but total war. Less than... more...
