Land reform and the possibility of expropriation without compensation are among the most hotly debated topics in South Africa today, met with trepidation and fervour in equal measure. But these broader issues tend to obscure a more immediate reality: a severe housing crisis and a sharp increase in urban land occupations.
In Promised Land, Karl Kemp travels the country documenting the fallout of failing land reform, from the under-siege Philippi Horticultural Area deep in the heart of Cape Town’s ganglands to the burning mango groves of Tzaneen, from Johannesburg’s lawless Deep South to rural KwaZulu-Natal, where chiefs own vast tracts of land on behalf of their subjects. He visits farming communities beset by violent crime, and provides gripping, on-the-ground reporting of recent land invasions, with perspectives from all sides, including land activists, property owners and government officials. Kemp also looks at burning issues surrounding the land debate in South Africa – corruption, farm murders, illegal foreign labour, mechanisation and eviction – and reveals the views of those affected.
Touching on the history of land conflict and conquest in each area, as well as detailing the current situation on the ground, Promised Land provides startling insights into the story of land conflict in South Africa.

Met onder meer die stories van die Lotters wat gebreinspoel was tot moord op hul ouers en die Van Breda bylmoorde.

This book will be of invaluable assistance in the study of the dynamic field of criminal procedure. It can be used as a companion to the Criminal Procedure Handbook twelfth ed by Joubert (editor) et al.
Elke uittreksel word voorafgegaan deur ‘n opsomming (in Engels en Afrikaans) van die feite en belangrike kwessies. Die uittreksels word gevolg deur ‘n kritiese aantekening (weereens in Engels en Afrikaans) waarin die belang van die uitspraak oorweeg en verduidelik word. Uitsprake in Afrikaans word gevolg deur ‘n Engelse vertaling. Die skrywers se keuse van uitsprake weerspieël ‘n beginselmatige benadering tot die onderwerp.
Die boek sal nuttig wees by die bestudering van die dinamiese gebied van die strafprosesreg. Dit kan saam met die Strafprosesreghandboek twaalfde uitgawe deur Joubert (redakteur) et al gebruik word.
’n Foonoproep uit Pollsmoor laat ’n navorser se lewe kantel. Só na aan hom was die vrou wat bel dat hy algaande die biblioteek, waar hy die eerste skepe aan die Kaap bestudeer, vir dié tronk se waglokaal verruil.
Gou kom hy agter dat dié plek is nie altyd so strak soos sy tralies nie: daar is ’n eertydse skipper wat hier vetkoek verkoop; ’n vrouebewaarder met jazz in haar stem; selfs karaoke-aande in die skaduwee van die lemmetjiesdraad.
Dieper en dieper word hy ingetrek by die lewens van diegene wat wag om ín- of uítgelaat te word. Net toe hy dink hy kan met sekerheid sê wie aan watter kant van die hoë mure staan, moet hy begryp dat verdriet bodemloos is.
In Theo Kemp se Strafjaart vervloei die strominge van ’n lewe met dié van die Suid-Afrikaanse werklikheid, waar hoop en wanhoop ’n maalkolk kan raak.

Contagion may alarm doctors but marketers thrive on it. Some concepts are so compelling you have to share them. But what makes an idea so infectious you can't keep it to yourself? And how can brands produce these kinds of ideas intentionally rather than by chance?

And in The Contagious Commandments, Paul Kemp-Robertson and Chris Barth condense this valuable research into ten strategic takeaways for your own marketing revolution.
Taking inspiration from disruptive campaigns from the likes of Patagonia, Nike, Safaricom, BrewDog, LEGO, Kenco, and dozens more, The Contagious Commandments explores how companies fuse creativity, technology and behavioural psychology to achieve truly original marketing ideas that have a positive impact on society and profits - and how your brand can too.

How do radically new kinds of organisms evolve? The Origin of Higher Taxa addresses this essential question, specifically whether the emergence of higher taxa such as orders, classes, and phyla are the result of normal Darwinian evolution acting over a sufficiently long period of time, or whether unusual genetic events and particular environmental and ecological circumstances are also involved. Until very recently, the combination of an incomplete fossil record and a limited understanding about how raw mutations lead via modified ontogenic processes to significant phenotypic changes, effectively stymied scientific debate. However, it is now timely to revisit the question in the light of the discovery of considerable new fossil material (and new techniques for studying it), together with significant advances in our understanding of phenotypic development at the molecular level. This novel text incorporates evidence from morphology, palaeobiology, developmental biology, and ecology, to review those parts of the fossil record that illustrate something of the pattern of acquisition of derived characters in lineages leading to actual higher taxa as well as the environmental conditions under which they occurred. The author's original ideas are set within the context of a broad and balanced review of the latest research in the field. The result is a book which provides a concise, authoritative, and accessible overview of this fascinating subject for both students and researchers in evolutionary biology and palaeontology.

The vision of a central waterway connecting tidewater Virginia
with the Ohio River to rival the Erie Canal persisted for decades
during the 19th century. The idea was at first fostered by the
commonwealth of Virginia and then reincarnated as the Central Water
Line, which was endorsed by the federal government. It was a grand
vision, and though never implemented, the Great Kanawha Navigation
nevertheless became a highly successful regionally controlled
waterway that developed the rich resources of the Kanawha Valley.
Emory Kemp has compiled a comprehensive history of navigation on
the Great Kanawha River, detailing the industrial archaeology of
this waterway from the early 19th century, and offering a detailed
case study of a major 19th- and early 20th-century civil
engineering project that would significantly advance the nation's
