Professor Allan J. Lichtman, who has correctly forecasted thirty years of presidential elections, makes the case for impeaching the 45th president of the United States, Donald J. Trump.
In The Case For Impeachment, Professor Lichtman lays out the reasons why Congress removing Donald J. Trump has become a matter of `when' not `if'. Shedding some light on the consequences of his ties with Russia before and after the election, complicated financial conflicts of interest at home and abroad and abuse of executive authority, this is an authoritative and comprehensive analysis of the most controversial presidency since Richard Nixon.
Labour Relations: A southern African perspective is the seventh edition of a text first published in 1989 under the title Labour Relations in South Africa. At that time, it was the first comprehensive textbook of its kind and was hailed as having reached the finishing line when others were still at the starting block.
Since then continuous social, political and legislative developments, and the ever-changing labour relations scenario, have necessitated regular updates, as well as the more recent change to its title.
Like its predecessors, this edition uses the labour ‘relationship’ as its starting point, guiding readers through the establishment of labour relations systems, the key participants and interactions involved and the legislation governing these interactions. It does this by using detailed practical examples, explanations and real-life cases where applicable.
In various parts of this latest edition, the text touches on the Fourth Industrial Revolution, the nature of changes to come and the implications for the world of work.
'A must-read. Acemoglu and Robinson are intellectual heavyweights of the first rank . . . erudite and fascinating' Paul Collier, Guardian, on Why Nations Fail By the authors of the international bestseller Why Nations Fail, based on decades of research, this powerful new big-picture framework explains how some countries develop towards and provide liberty while others fall to despotism, anarchy or asphyxiating norms- and explains how liberty can thrive despite new threats. Liberty is hardly the 'natural' order of things; usually states have been either too weak to protect individuals or too strong for people to protect themselves from despotism. There is also a happy Western myth that where liberty exists, it's a steady state, arrived at by 'enlightenment'. But liberty emerges only when a delicate and incessant balance is struck between state and society - between elites and citizens. This struggle becomes self-reinforcing, inducing both state and society to develop a richer array of capacities, thus affecting the peacefulness of societies, the success of economies and how people experience their daily lives. Explaining this new framework through compelling stories from around the world, in history and from today - and through a single diagram on which the development of any state can be plotted - this masterpiece helps us understand the past and present, and analyse the future. 'An intellectually rich book that develops an important thesis with verve' Martin Wolf, Financial Times, on Why Nations Fail
Arthur Chaskalson: A Life Dedicated to Justice for All is a biography of a remarkable life lived in service both to law and to the struggle for social change and justice. The social change it describes is the victory over apartheid, which was won on several fronts and through the efforts of people in many nations, but an important one of those fronts lay in the courts of South Africa itself.
Arthur Chaskalson’s life story and the four phases of his remarkable career – advocate at the Johannesburg Bar; founder and leader of the Legal Resources Centre; his involvement in the constitution-making process; and his term as the first Chief Justice of South Africa’s Constitutional Court – embody the story of law in the struggle against apartheid and then in a newly created democracy. At the same time, Chaskalson’s chronicle is also individual, the shaping of the moral intelligence of a lawyer and a judge, trusted by everyone he dealt with, through the fires of a lifetime’s opposition to a society’s injustice.
In exploring Chaskalson’s life and career, we appreciate more clearly the roles lawyers can play in social change and the achievement of a just social order, and at the same time we gain insight into the combination of upbringing, experience and character that shapes a man first into a ‘cause lawyer’ and then into a path-breaking and foundation-laying judge.

Trial preparation is a process that often commences immediately
after the close of pleadings. It involves what may be categorised
as: external procedural steps directed at the opposing litigant or
third parties, such as requesting further particulars and replying
to requests, making discovery and subpoenaing witnesses; internal
acts of preparation, such as identifying the issues in a matter,
determining the witnesses required to be called, preparing to lead
and cross-examine witnesses and undertaking research on law.
Eckardís Principles of Civil Procedure in the Magistratesí Courts

analysis of civil procedural law in the magistratesí courts and
includes numerous illustrative examples of pleadings and notices as
well as various prescribed forms relevant to proceedings.
Collective Labour Law is the most thorough and comprehensive single
work available on the law governing the often-tempestuous
relationship between organised labour and employers in South
Africa. The book covers topics such as the recognition of trade
unions as bargaining agents, how organisational rights are acquired

First published in 2010, this book is the most comprehensive exposition of practice and procedure in the various forums charged with resolving employment and labour disputes in South Africa. It provides an overview of the nature, powers and jurisdiction of the CCMA, bargaining councils, the Labour Court and private arbitrators, and guides the reader through the maze of rules and procedures that must be followed to process matters through these forums, while giving useful tips on how to avoid or surmount obstacles that might arise along the way.
This book is more than a practice manual. It sets out the principles underlying the issues discussed and illustrates them with many examples from decided cases.
Labour Litigation and Dispute Resolution forms one volume of a quartet by the author, which together covers the entire field of labour law as it has developed in South Africa to date.
Muslim Personal Law in South Africa: Evolution and Future Status, the first South African book on the topic of Muslim personal law, introduces readers to the debate on the awarding of unique rights to specific communities. The recognition of Muslim personal law or Muslim family law has provoked debate within and beyond the Muslim community and has attracted the attention of religious scholars, academics and lawyers. The contributors to this volume touch on constitutional issues, concerns with the application of Muslim personal law by our courts, and the conflict between supporters and opponents of the draft Bill on Muslim Marriages. The non-recognition of Muslim marriages has compelled Muslim women who have suffered the dire consequences of divorce, maintenance and custody to approach the courts for relief. If Muslim personal law were to be recognised by the state, to what extent would it protect the rights of women? Will recent judgments establish precedents that might prove to be at odds with the draft Bill? This book provides fascinating insight into the evolution and prospects of Muslim personal law in South Africa.
Employment Rights forms one volume of a quartet by the author,
which together covers the entire field of labour law as it has
developed in South Africa to date. This volume deals with relations

to its termination and highlights the drastic inroads which have
been made on the managerial prerogative by legislation,
particularly the Basic Conditions of Employment Act, the Labour
Relations Act and the Employment Equity Act.

The official TV tie-in edition of Defending the Guilty 'Terrific, fascinating, very funny' Daily Mail 'Hilarious' Sun 'Gripping' Literary Review How do we ensure that the guilty are convicted and the innocent walk free? Shortlisted for the Crime Writers Award Gold Dagger for Non-Fiction, true crime meets humour in Defending the Guilty, a hilariously funny and eye-opening expose of the criminal justice system. Every day, criminal barrister Alex McBride stands up in court and attempts to save people from conviction, prison, even a lifetime behind bars. Sometimes it's a hopeless case. Sometimes he has the chance to right a wrong. But mostly his clients are just plain guilty. In Defending the Guilty, McBride takes us behind the scenes of Britain's criminal justice system. He introduces us to its extraordinary characters and arcane eccentricities, and tells astonishing stories of courtroom triumph and defeat. Whether he's defending hapless teenagers at Harlow Youth Court or prosecuting gold bullion robbers at the Old Bailey, these hair-raising tales reveal that justice rarely operates in quite the way we expect. 'Expert, authoritative, hilarious - an insider's fearless account of life at the criminal bar' Craig Raine, Times Literary Supplement, Books of the Year 'McBride details his own cock-ups and disasters with the relish of the born humorous writer.

The exploitation of natural resources in Africa represents a major challenge. The African continent, which remains largely unexplored, contains a large part of the worldís natural resources.

'A must-read. Acemoglu and Robinson are intellectual heavyweights of the first rank . . . erudite and fascinating' Paul Collier, Guardian, on Why Nations Fail In this profoundly important follow up to their global bestseller, Acemoglu and Robinson provide a powerful new framework for looking at countries' development through the way that the state interacts with society. This conceptualisation - in which any country can be located on a simple diagram and its future predicted - is new and based on decades of their research. The power distribution between state and society affects how peaceful societies are, what types of institutions develop, how much oppression and fear people suffer, how their economies are organized, and how rich they are. Full of entertaining stories from the past (it starts with the wife of a Nigerian ruler fleeing Abuja with 38 suitcases of cash), Balance of Power sheds light on issues from the present and has practical political ideas for the future. 'An intellectually rich book that develops an important thesis with verve' Martin Wolf, Financial Times, on Why Nations Fail
Ubuntu: An African Jurisprudence examines how and why South African courts and law-makers have been using the concept of ubuntu over the last thirty years, reflecting the views of judges and scholars, and above all proclaiming the importance of this new idea for South African legal thinking. Although ubuntu is the product of relations in and between the close-knit groups of a precolonial society, its basic aims - social harmony and caring for others - give it an inherently inclusive scope. This principle is therefore quite capable of embracing all those who constitute the heterogeneous populations of modern states. Included in this work are discussions of two traditional institutions that provide model settings for the realisation of ubuntu: imbizo, national gatherings consulted by traditional rulers to decide matters of general concern, and indaba, a typically African process of making decisions based on the consensus of the group. Courts and law-makers have used imbizo to give effect to the constitutional requirement of participatory democracy, and indaba to suggest an alternative method of decision-making to systems of majority voting. Ubuntu offers something extraordinarily valuable to South Africa and, in fact, to the wider world. Its emphasis on our responsibility for the welfare of our fellow beings acts as a timely antidote not only to the typically rationalist, disinterested system of justice in Western law, but also to the sense of anomie so prevalent in today's society.
The South African Schools Act 84 of 1996 aims to make high-quality basic education accessible to all South African children irrespective of race and geographic location in the country. Written by significant role-players and members of the judiciary, Pathways to Successful Schooling reflects on the journey of South African schooling over the past 20 years. This book was prompted by the 2016 Schools Act symposium, Schools Act @ 20: Charting the Way Forward, which celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Schools Act. Looking at education since 1996, this book considers practical alternatives for addressing contentious matters. Unique to this work is the inclusion of the first ever analysis of the background to the drafting of the Schools Act. Pathways to Successful Schooling gives perspectives on dreams, expectations and realities. It reflects on what became of the vision of the Education White Paper 1 and the Schools Act. An international dimension is added by the discussion of constitutional changes and values in the context of the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals. The book also looks at legislating for the realisation of children's rights and offers the view that, although the Act has set the pace, broader efforts will enhance children's rights in South Africa.
