South Africa’s distorted distribution of wealth is one of the biggest challenges facing the country’s economy, with unemployment sitting at an unsustainable 27.7%. In terms of wealth, the top percentile households hold 70.9% while the bottom 60% holds a mere 7%. 76% of South Africans face an imminent threat of falling below the poverty line. With such statistics, the inequality crisis in this country is at a desperate level and strategies to remedy this challenge seem shallow and lack urgency.
In this context, the Institute for African Alternatives has brought together a series of papers written by eminent South African academics and policymakers to serve as a catalyst to finally confront and resolve inequality. With papers from former Public Prosecutor Thuli Madonsela, Ben Turok and former President Kgalema Motlanthe, this book provides a guide to how the nation can confront and resolve the inequality plaguing the country. The nation is headed to the polls later this year and books such as this are vital for providing a strong guide on how those in power can address South Africa’s biggest economic crisis.
A great contribution to the current political discourse, the book both confronts the issue and provides strategies on how to remedy inequality.
Trespass Against Us is set across three generations of the Cutler family who live as outlaws in their own anarchic corner of Britain’s richest countryside.

The purpose of this book is to set out the basic principles and conceptual issues of the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).
The 9th edition of Hockly's insolvency law follows the expanded format of the previous two editions. The basic purpose of the book remains the same: to provide a concise, yet fairly detailed, account of the law of insolvency, winding-up and judicial management. The book aims at a wide readership. For the subject specialist, it provides an update of developments in the law relating to insolvency and winding-up; for students, it is a text for both undergraduate and postgraduate study; and for insolvency practitioners, it may be used as a guide and a quick source of reference. The appendices contain specimen applications, specimen estate accounts, the Insolvency Act, relevant extracts from the Companies Act and the Close Corporations Act, and the Cross-Border Insolvency Act.
The new novel by Wilbur Smith and the prequel to A Falcon Flies.
The son of a wealthy plantation owner and a doting mother, Augustus Mungo St John is accustomed to the wealth and luxuries his privilege has afforded him. That is until he returns from university to discover his family ruined, his inheritance stolen and his childhood sweetheart, Camilla, taken by the conniving Chester Marion. Fuelled by anger, and love, Mungo swears vengeance and devotes his life to saving Camilla - and destroying Chester.
Camilla, trapped in New Orleans and powerless to her position as a kept slave and Chester's brutish behaviour, must learn to do whatever it takes to survive.
As Mungo battles his own fate and misfortune to achieve the revenge that drives him, and regain his power in the world, he must question what it takes for a man to survive when he has nothing, and what he is willing to do in order to get what he wants.
An action-packed and gripping adventure by bestselling author, Wilbur Smith, about one man's quest for revenge, the brutality of slavery in America and the imbalance between humans that can drive - or defeat - us.
In the Swedish criminal justice system, certain cases are considered especially strange and difficult, in MalmŲ, the dedicated detectives who investigate these crimes are members of an elite squad known as the Sensitive Crimes Division.
These are their stories.
The first case: the small matter of a man stabbed in the back of the knee. Who would perpetrate such a crime and why? Next: a young woman’s imaginary boyfriend goes missing. But how on earth do you search for someone who doesn’t exist? And in the final investigation: eerie secrets that are revealed under a full moon may not seem so supernatural in the light of day. No case is too unusual, too complicated, or too, well insignificant for this squad to solve.
The team: Ulf “the Wolf” Varg, the top dog, thoughtful and diligent; Anna Bengsdotter, who’s in love with Varg’s car (and possibly Varg too); Carl Holgersson, who likes nothing more than filling out paperwork; and Erik Nykvist, who is deeply committed to fly fishing.
With the help of a rather verbose local police officer, this crack team gets to the bottom of cases other detectives can’t or won’t bother to handle. Equal parts hilarious and heartening, The Department of Sensitive Crimes is a tour de farce from a true master.

Selfs Stefan Treurnicht, die blinde klavierstemmer lyk vir haar verdag.
Ondanks die teenwoordigheid van haar troue waghond beland sy weer in die sluipjagter se strik. Kan Pieter Taljaard die leidrade betyds ontrafel om ’n moord te voorkom?

From the Academy Award-winning director of The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty, Detroit tells the gripping story of one of the darkest moments during the civil unrest that rocked Detroit in the 60's.
In the summer of 1967, rioting and civil unrest starts to tear apart the city of Detroit. Two days later, a report of gunshots prompts the Detroit Police Department, the Michigan State Police and the Michigan Army National Guard to search and seize a section of the nearby Algiers Motel. Several white policemen start to flout procedure by forcefully and viciously interrogating African-American guests to get a confession.
By the end of the night, the city of Detroit was irrevocably changed.
Undoubtedly the most famous scientist on the planet and the very face of physics over the last half-century, Stephen Hawking is remarkable for many reasons, not least because he has continued to strive to achieve so much while being hamstrung by debilitating illness. He has demonstrated categorically that if you put your mind to it, you can achieve anything, no matter your physical state. Of course, it helps if you happen to possess a mind such as his.
His work on black holes put him on the map, and he became globally famous for his "A Brief History of Time," communicating the most difficult scientific ideas at a period when he'd lost the ability to speak. How To Think Like Stephen Hawking reveals the key motivations, desires, and philosophies that make Hawking one of the world s most enduring talents.
Studying how he overcame great adversity, fought his demons as well as his detractors, and looked back to the origins of the universe, and with quotes and passages by and about him, you too can learn to think like the man who claims he can think in 11 dimensions.
