Charles Oertel bevind hom in ’n netelige posisie. Hy is ’n skatryk Vrystaatse boer en het sentimente jeens beide magte wat tydens die Anglo-Boereoorlog slaags raak. Bothma se noukeurige navorsing oor hierdie invloedryke man en sy nasate se lotgevalle tydens en na die oorlog bevestig geboekstaafde kennis maar bied ook nuwe inligting. Daarbenewens is dit ’n boeiende menslike verhaal wat die leser tot nadenke stem. Sou dit anders verloop het as dit nie vir die oorlog was nie? Keer die mens nie die punt van die punt van die swaard self op sy hart nie? Punt van die swaard was in 2005 op die kortlys vir die Louis Hiemstra-prys vir niefiksie.
Hoe toets jy die staal van 'n man wat jou beeldskone dogter van jou af wil wegneem? In hierdie roman word die leser op reis geneem deur Angola se jagvelde, op soek na 'n reuse-olifantbul – maar dis meer as 'n dramatiese jagtog. Avontuur, romantiek en manlike drif, Namibie se ruimtes – dit is die kombinasie waarmee Doc Immelman se vreeslose skrywershand dekades al sy meer as 30 000 lesers gevange hou. Self ’n jagter, skryf Immelman uit eerstehandse ervaring. In sy romans bly die harde verlatenheid van die land noordwes van Suid-Afrika ’n werklikheid.

In hierdie bundel loop die skrywer op sy kinderspore terug na die dorre Kalahari soos dit in die 1930's daaruit gesien het en word verskeie gebeure en emosies weer opgeroep: 'n lieflinghond wat in die duinestrate agterbly, 'n verharde pa, ontbering en uiteindelik: liefde. Onder verskeie prikkelende opskrifte – "Die Krismishoenders", "Agarob", "Weggooikinders", "Bruilof vir oom Wessel", "Oubaas Vogelbruck se stompore" – gee die 27 vertellings 'n helder beeld van 'n kind se grootword in die Kalahari. Dr. Willem D. Kotze is in 1931 op die plaas Texas langs die Nossobrivier in Namibie gebore. As kind het hy, agter die karakoeltrop en beeste, sy vader se Kalahariplaas Wilheben deurkruis.

International tax law: Offshore tax avoidance in South Africa provides a comprehensive analysis of some of the offshore tax-avoidance schemes employed by South African residents. The book offers a detailed and logical explanation of difficult international tax concepts, and critically analyses the effectiveness of South African legislation in curbing offshore tax-avoidance schemes. South African legislative provisions are compared with similar provisions in the United Kingdom and the United States of America, and international case law and tax treaty implications are thoroughly discussed. International tax law: Offshore tax avoidance in South Africa also addresses the recommendations of international organisations, such as the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), which seek to prevent international tax avoidance. In this regard, the role of tax havens in encouraging international tax avoidance and the OECD initiatives to stifle their development are considered. The OECD's efforts to prevent base erosion and profit shifting are also examined.
Class Action Litigation in South Africa is the first book to be published in South Africa dealing with this area of the law. The book collects, describes and interrogates the first-class action judgments in South Africa, aiming to go beyond the existing and ground-breaking Supreme Court of Appeal and Constitutional Court judgments on class actions, and makes practical suggestions regarding the issues that are likely to arise for practitioners, judges and academics as they encounter class actions in South Africa. Class Action Litigation in South Africa seeks to ensure a home-grown understanding of class actions for our country, but also offers the reader first-hand exposure to lessons learnt from international experts in class action litigation. The book thus embraces contributions from around the world that are wide-ranging, straddling the fields of law, economics, social justice and politics. The book presents important and useful insights into class action litigation from local and international experts. The editors and the contributors have all been involved in the leading class action cases in South Africa and abroad.
Gerrie Radlof se gewilde Oloff die Seerowerreeks is oorspronklik tussen 1957 en 1961 uitgegee en het daarna reeds vier uitgawes beleef. Die verhale, wat in die 1740's afspeel aan die Kaap de Goede Hoop en die seewee daarom heen, is verwerk om aan te pas by die moderne taalgebruik en aan te sluit by die hedendaagse tiener, maar niks van die oorspronklike sjarme en spanning het in die verwerking verlore gegaan nie. Ook geskik as leesstof vir Afrikaans tweede taal vir ouer leerlinge.

Perspectives on the Law of Partnership in South Africa examines the most problematic issues in the law of partnership. It investigates specific issues in the area of partnership law, painting a broader picture of all the other relevant areas involved. In following a 'perspectives' approach - presenting a historical and a comparative perspective - the book offers a detailed consideration of complex areas of partnership law while at the same time exploring the law in general. Topics discussed range from the history and development of partnership law to perennial classical favourites such as the leonine partnership, the triple contract and universal partnership proper, all three of which contributed to the delineation of the partnership concept. Aspects of the law in general that are discussed in detail include: Legal status and its attendant entity and aggregate theories, representation and mutual mandate, partnerships en commandite, anonymous, limited and limited liability partnerships, the removal of the limit on the number of partners, partnership sequestration, the dual priorities rule. Perspectives on the Law of Partnership in South Africa is offered as a scholarly book for the subject specialist with the expectation that it will also invigorate interest in and advance research on the law of partnership.
South Africa's property law teachers have been convening annually since 1985 to exchange ideas, subject their work to peer scrutiny and build a collegial network. Over time, the agendas of the annual meetings became snapshots of the development of a discipline. In celebration of the 25th anniversary of this meeting, the property law teachers' colloquium was expanded into an International property law conference, giving South African property law teachers an opportunity to exchange their ideas on a much broader platform, with some of the world's best property law scholars and teachers. Property law under scrutiny brings together pieces that give an overview of property law twenty-five years after the establishment of the South African property law teachers' colloquium. A recurrent theme in all the contributions at the conference, and the ones included in this publication, is the tension between well-established principles of property law and the policies that drive legal development in the field. The topics addressed are organised into four themes, as follows: The first cluster relates to an age-old issue in conventional property law: The accession of movables to immovables; The second cluster concerns the centrality of the real agreement in transfers and in the real security context; A third cluster deals with questions about the public law aspects of property; The fourth cluster captures some of the dilemmas and challenges concerning the abandonment and neglect of property. It ties together the underlying concerns aired in debates about the conventional property rules and issues surfacing in the crossover between private and public law, and the role of property law principles. In capturing the interaction between South African and international scholarship, Property law under scrutiny serves to introduce a new era in this developing discipline. Teachers and practitioners of property law, locally and internationally, will find this to be an invaluable resource.

This title explains the idea of urban fragmented property holding in South Africa, with reference to the different forms of urban fragmented property schemes introduced by legislation.

Law Of Persons, now in its sixth edition, has become a standard text on the South African law of persons. The book was first published in 1995, just after the dawn of South Africa’s first democratic dispensation. The book constitutes a general and fully referenced source on the law of persons, and reflects the transformation of the law of persons in line with the values entrenched in the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996, with specific reference to the Bill of Rights.
First-year students will derive the most benefit from Law of Persons if the book is used in conjunction with the Law of Persons Sourcebook.
Die Boereheldin Johanna Brandt, wat bekendheid verwerf het met haar boeke Het concentratie-kamp van Irene (1905), The Petticoat Commando (1913) en Die Kappiekommando (1913) was 'n merkwaardige vrou, besonder intelligent en met sterk leierseienskappe en buitengewone energie. Gedurende die Anglo-Boereoorlog word sy betrek in die spioenasienetwerk van die Transvaalse geheime diens en haar woning word 'n skuilplek vir boerespioene. Vir 'n tyd lank is sy ook kampverpleegster in die Irene-konsentrasiekamp. Na die oorlog neem sy as predikantsvrou 'n leidende rol in die opheffing van die verarmde Boerevrouens en help bou aan die geestelike vorming van 'n nasionale bewussyn en die emansipasie van die vrou.
