(Cape Town: Nasionale Boekhandel, 1956). 8vo; original mustard-coloured boards, lettered in black on spine; pictorial dustwrapper; pp. vi + 224; plates. Dustwrapper a bit soiled and ragged, with some loss; earlier owner's inscription to front free endpaper; a little foxing. Good condition. Afrikaans text. ' "Die rampspoedigste toer wat ons nog beleef het." "Ons span was briljant, maar ongelukkig." … So het die menings uiteengeloop ná die Springbokke se 1956-toer na Australië en Nieu-Seeland. Juis omdat Suid-Afrika verloor het en die rugbykroon aan sy tradisionele "vyand" moes afstaan, is dit 'n gedenkwaardige toer. Die All Blacks het ons vasgetrap en in die bladsye van hierdie boek kan u die verhaal van daardie vastrapping lees. Dirk Kamfer het die toer meegemaak as spesiale verteenwoordiger van Die Huisgenoot en almal wat sy gewilde artikels in daardie blad gelees het, sal weet wat om van dié boek te verwag.' .

Terselfdertyd is dit 'n boeiende portret van 'n hoogs verwikkelde en enigmatiese man. Waarin Kannemeyer egter by uitnemendheid slaag, is om Leroux se eie stem deur die werk te laat spreek." - Ingrid Winterbach .

Sy invloed op veral die Afrikaanse poësie, die rol wat hy agter die skerms gespeel het, sy vormende invloed op jong talente - dit word alles helder in hierdie boek uitgebeeld.' .

"This biography of JM Coetzee is the first to be written with the co-operation of Coetzee himself. With access to the writer, JC Kannemeyer was able to establish hitherto unsuspected connections between the writer's life and work. ... Kannemeyer candidly but sensitively describes Coetzee's relations with this parents, his wife and children, his colleagues and publishers. His account reveals the joy and also the sorrow that marked some of these relationships and how he was able to incorporate these experiences into situations, figures or motifs in his novels. ... After Kannemeyer it will not be possible to read Coetzee without an awareness of the deeply personal history and the social and political circumstances from which Coetzee's work has… Read more

"Johannesburg Jewry is unique among Jewish communities throughout the world because its people joined with others to become the founders of a city. Numbering ten per cent of the white population from mining camp days in 1886 onwards, Jews made a significant contribution to the growth of Johannesburg. In Founders and Followers - Johannesburg Jewry 1887-1915, largely through biographies of personalities, various writers tell the story of the pioneers in the period from the founding of the first congregation in 1887 to 1915, when the two largest congregations amalgamated.

What did Robert Smit know that made it so important to have him silenced? Why have the perpetrators still not been brought to justice? Ten of South Africa's most baffling crime mysteries are revisited and provide the reader with a sense of the real human tragedies behind these haunting events." .

'Die verskyning van die nuwe Afrikaanse "Musiek en Liriek" in die sewentigerjare het soos 'n fris wind, deur woord en melodie, ons eie land en lewe begin beskryf. Dr. Katzenellenbogen het onmiddellik die moontlikheid vir die dans raakgesien. Met haar kennis en ervaring van die totstandkoming van die Israeli-danse, wat 'n spontane ontwikkeling was van uiteenlopende kulturele groepe binne 'n volk, is die aansporing om Suid-Afrikaanse danse te choreografeer verder versterk. Ook in Suid-Afrika word daar vandag met ander oë na die verskeidenheid en rykheid van die kulture binne ons eie grense gekyk.' - From the foreword. Songs choreographed in this book are: Kammaland se Tannie, Kolperd, Ou Kraalliedjie (Juniors), Simon het 'n Diamant, Waai met die Wiepie, Boegoeberg se Dam, Byeboerwa, Click Song, Daantjie van die… Read more
