Jag is ’n avontuur wat jou wegvoer van vier mure na die oop ruimtes van groot Afrika en jou laat kennis maak met ontbering en volharding, met lekker spog en lekker eet. En die oog, die kamera en die sakboekie vervang nie in een dag die jagroer nie. P.J. Schoeman se naam was vir geslagte Afrikaanslesers sinoniem met verhale waarin natuurkennis en natuurgevoeligheid saampraat. Vir diegene wat as jong lesers met Schoeman kennis gemaak het, sal die lees van hierdie hersiene heruitgawe ’n nostalgiese ervaring wees – ’n erfenis om aan vandag se jong lesers oor te dra.
"Persuasive and brilliantly written, the book is especially timely given the rise of trillion-dollar tech companies."--Publishers Weekly
From the man who coined the term "net neutrality," author of The Master Switch and The Attention Merchants, comes a warning about the dangers of excessive corporate and industrial concentration for our economic and political future.
We live in an age of extreme corporate concentration, in which global industries are controlled by just a few giant firms -- big banks, big pharma, and big tech, just to name a few. But concern over what Louis Brandeis called the "curse of bigness" can no longer remain the province of specialist lawyers and economists, for it has spilled over into policy and politics, even threatening democracy itself. History suggests that tolerance of inequality and failing to control excessive corporate power may prompt the rise of populism, nationalism, extremist politicians, and fascist regimes. In short, as Wu warns, we are in grave danger of repeating the signature errors of the twentieth century.
In The Curse of Bigness, Columbia professor Tim Wu tells of how figures like Brandeis and Theodore Roosevelt first confronted the democratic threats posed by the great trusts of the Gilded Age--but the lessons of the Progressive Era were forgotten in the last 40 years. He calls for recovering the lost tenets of the trustbusting age as part of a broader revival of American progressive ideas as we confront the fallout of persistent and extreme economic inequality.

Born in 1917 in Bizana in the Eastern Cape, Oliver Reginald Tambo became Nelson Mandela's legal partner and a prominent member of the ANC's Youth League.
Following the Sharpeville massacre in 1960, Tambo left South Africa to set up the ANC's international mission. As President of the ANC in exile, he led the fight against apartheid on both the diplomatic and military fronts. He died in 1993 on the eve of liberation. Tambo had a profound influence on the ANC during the difficult years of uncertainty, loneliness and homesickness in exile. His simplicity, his nurturing style, his genuine respect for all people seemed to bring out the best in them.

Outeur en historikus Karel Schoeman skets in hierdie werk 'n lewende beeld van Susanna Smit: nie net van haar persoonlike wedervarings nie, maar ook die agtergrond waarteen haar lewe afgespeel het: die onrustige tyd aan die Oosgrens, Susanna se verbintenis met Bethelsdorp en die vroee werksaamhede van die Londense Sendinggenootskap, die Groot Trek en die opkoms en ondergang van die Republiek Natalia. Susanna Smit was die suster van die Trekkerleier Gert Maritz en die vrou van die Trekkerpredikant Erasmus Smit. Dit is aan haar dat die kreet "Liewer barrevoets oor die Drakensberge ..." (teen die Britse oorname van Natal) toegeskryf word. Susanna Smit was ook die skrywer van 'n omvangryke dagboek wat in sy behoue vorm die jare 1843-1851 dek en hoofsaaklik haar geestelike belewenisse vasle.
Early in his judicial career, U.S. District Judge Warren K. Urbom was assigned a yearlong string of criminal trials arising from a seventy-one-day armed standoff between the American Indian Movement and federal law enforcement at Wounded Knee, South Dakota. In "Called to Justice" Urbom provides the first behind-the-scenes look at what quickly became one of the most significant series of federal trials of the twentieth century. Yet Wounded Knee was only one set of monumental cases Urbom presided over during his years on the bench, a set that in turn forms but one chapter in a remarkable life story.
Urbom's memoir begins on a small farm in Nebraska during the dustbowl 1930s. From making it through the Great Depression and drought to serving in World War II, working summers for his father's dirt-moving business, and going to school on the G.I. Bill, Urbom's experiences constitute a classic American story of making the most of opportunity, inspiration, and a little luck. Urbom gives a candid account of his time as a trial lawyer and his early plans to become a minister--and of the effect both had on his judicial career. His story offers a rare inside view of what it means to be a federal judge--the nuts and bolts of conducting trials, weighing evidence, and making decisions--but also considers the questions of law and morality, all within the framework of a life well lived and richly recounted.
