Die motiewe agter gesinsmoorde is dikwels vreemder as fiksie. Tergende vrae kan deur psigiaters beantwoord word ... of dalk nie. Deur na verskeie gevalle van gesinsmoord te kyk gooi hierdie boek ’n bietjie lig in 'n baie donker plek. Met onder meer die stories van die Lotters wat gebreinspoel was tot moord op hul ouers en die Van Breda bylmoorde.
’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.
A summary of the facts and important issues precedes each case excerpt. The excerpts are followed by a critical note evaluating and explaining the relevance and importance of the judgment. The method employed by the authors in their selection of cases reflects a principled approach to the subject. All introductory and explanatory notes are in English and Afrikaans, and Afrikaans judgments are followed by an English translation.

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.

'A delight from the first page to the last' Milly Johnson Charlotte Bold is nothing like her name - she is shy and timid and just wants a quiet life. When her job doing the traffic news on the radio in London is relocated to Sunshine FM in Mumbles, she jumps at the chance for a new start in Wales. But when she arrives she discovers that she's not there to do the travel news - she's there to front the graveyard evening show. And she's not sure she can do it. Thrust into the limelight, she must find her voice and a way to cope. And soon she realises that she's not the only person who finds life hard - out there her listeners are lonely too. And her show is the one keeping them going. Can Charlotte seize the day and make the most of her new home? And will she be able to breathe new life into the tiny radio station too...?
Jack Rose begins his apprenticeship as a rent boy with Alfred Taylor in the 1890s, and discovers a life of pleasure and excess that leads him to new friendships, most notably with the soon-to-be infamous Oscar Wilde. A century later, David tells his own tale of unashamed decadence while waiting to be released from prison, addressing his story to the lover who betrayed him. Where their paths cross, in the politically sensitive 1950s when gay men were the target of police and politicians alike, artist Colin tentatively explores his sexuality as he draws in preparation for his most ambitious painting yet-`London Triptych'. Moodily atmospheric and rich with history, London Triptych is a sexy, resplendent portrait of the politics and pleasures of queer life in one of the world's most fascinating cities.
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.
“Vang jy hom onbehoeds van voor, dan lyk hy soos ‘n man wat nou net met ’n stok geslaan is. Maar hou hom dop uit die hoek van jou oog, dan bespeur jy die glorie van ’n slim man. ’n Mooi man.”
George is gebore toe Jan Smuts dood is, word op ’n plaas in die Noord-Kaap groot, dien as aaspeloton in Angola, raak deurmekaar met die Baader-Meinhofbende in Duitsland, werk as joernalis tydens die noodtoestande in Kaapstad, maar op die ou end word hy ’n saboteur, ’n skaapsmokkelaar, ’n mal man, ’n boemelaar. Tussendeur kul en koggel George prokureurs, kopdokters, en vroue.
Gedeeltelik bewolk is ’n pittige, aweregse debuutroman wat jou soos ’n vuishou in die maag slaan.

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? Contagious, the globally renowned intelligence resource for the marketing industry, is dedicated to identifying and interrogating the world's most exceptional creative trends. 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.
