R315 R271 Discovery Miles 2 710 Save R44 (14%) In stock

It is the early 1990s and South Africa is on a knife-edge. Nelson Mandela is free at last, but a peaceful political transition looks impossible. In the midst of all this the NP government faced the ANC at the negotiation table at Codesa. As head of National Intelligence (NI), Niel Barnard was central to this process. He also reveals intriguing details of top-secret meetings between the ANC and the NI in hotel rooms in Europe, and writes about his encounters with the Russian KGB in Moscow.

Geheime Revolusie - Memoires Van 'n Spioenbaas (Afrikaans, Paperback): Niel Barnard, Tobie Wiese Geheime Revolusie - Memoires Van 'n Spioenbaas (Afrikaans, Paperback)

In die duistere wreld van spioene geld die gewone rels nie en is alles geoorloof in die naam van landsveiligheid – selfs om met die staat se Vyand No. 1 te praat.

Dit is presies wat Nil Barnard in die laat 1980’s as hoof van die Nasionale Intelligensiediens (NI) gedoen het. In opdrag van PW Botha het hy in die geheim gesprekke met Nelson Mandela begin voer oor die moontlikheid van ’n demokratiese verkiesing en ’n meerderheidsregering. Nie eens die kabinet was bewus van hierdie gesprekke nie.

Geheime Revolusie onthul besonderhede oor hierdie ontmoetings – die eerste stap in die rigting van ’n demokratiese Suid-Afrika – asook oor die spesiale persoonlike band wat tussen die twee mans ontwikkel het. Sowel Mandela as Barnard was sterk persoonlikhede wat by tye hardkoppig en selfs kwasterig kon wees, maar al twee het die gewig besef van dit waarmee hulle besig was.

Die boek bied ook ’n fassinerende blik op die alledaagse lewe van spioene en die suksesse van NI in die 1980’s. As spioenbaas het Barnard daarin geslaag om bande te vestig met vriende en vyande van die Suid-Afrikaanse staat. Hy het nie net talle Afrika-leiers besoek in ’n tyd toe Suid-Afrika die muishond van die wreld was nie, maar selfs intelligensiebande met kommunistiese Rusland gebou.

’n Moet vir enigeen wat wonder oor wat alles in die 1980’s agter die politieke skerms gebeur het.

Wreed en Mooi is die Dood - Verhale oor Verlies, Hunkering en Heling (Paperback): Tobie Wiese Wreed en Mooi is die Dood - Verhale oor Verlies, Hunkering en Heling (Paperback)

Van die oomblik wat ons gebore word, begin ons ook te sterf. Maar al is die dood een van die algemeenste menslike gebeurtenisse, vermy die meeste mense om daaroor te dink of te praat. Wreed En Mooi Is Die Dood – met bydraes deur gewilde Afrikaanse skrywers – probeer hierdie stilte te verbreek.

Deur hul diep persoonlike verhale oor verlies en heling te deel, bied die bydraers onbewustelik ook raad vir hoe om die hartseer van ’n geliefde se dood te verwerk en hoe om jou eie sterflikheid te konfronteer. So vertel Marita van der Vyver van haar babaseun se dood, terwyl Valda Jansen beskryf hoe sy lamgel is deur die nuus dat sy kanker het en Kerneels Breytenbach deel sy ervaring van eensaamheid na sy vrou se dood. ’n Paramedikus beskryf sy daaglikse ontmoetings met die dood, daar is ’n lys van dinge wat ’n mens vir ’n sterwende moet s en nie moet s nie en ook ’n bespreking van die rituele om die dood. Daar is soms selfs ’n bietjie humor . . . soos die storie oor die jong dominee wat in ’n le graf geval het en Annelie Botes se voorbereidings vir haar begrafnis.

Dit is ’n aangrypende boek wat beloof om lesers te roer en weer te laat dink oor hulle prioriteite in die lewe.

In the murky world of espionage few rules apply. Everything is permitted in the name of state security – even talking to Enemy No. 1.

This is exactly what Nil Barnard, then head of the National Intelligence Service (NIS), did in the late 1980s. On instruction of PW Botha, he started top-secret talks with Nelson Mandela in prison. Not even Cabinet was informed.

In Secret Revolution Barnard reveals, for the first time, the details of these meetings – the precursor to Mandela’s release and the first democratic elections. Barnard’s disclosures offer fascinating insights into Mandela the man, his convictions and strategic reasoning.

The book sheds light on the daily lives of spies during NIS’s heyday in the 1980s and contains several revelations: From the secret communication channel NIS established with the KGB and the British operatives caught spying on South Africa’s nuclear capability to ministers’ sexual escapades.
