Description:
(Brandfort: Kraal-Uitgewers, 2007) 9780981400914. This volume is the first in the subseries "Erwe Vir Ons Kinders: Volksmartelare." 208 x 147 mm; laminated pictorial wrappers; contemporary photographs and facsimiles. Fine condition. Afrikaans text. "Toe die Boerekommando's ná die uitbreek van die oorlog die Kaapkolonie binneval, is hulle met gejuig deur die Kaapse Afrikaners begroet. Duisende Kaapse inwoners het die geweer opgeneem en by die Boeremagte aangesluit. Vir baie van hulle was dit nie 'n maklike taak nie, omdat hulle die doodstraf opgelê kon word indien hulle hul volksgenote in die twee Boererepublieke sou help. Maar die stryd en die swaarkry van hulle volksgenote in die Republieke het hulle só aangegryp dat hulle verkies het om eerder vervolg te word as wat hulle volksgenote in die noorde alleen die magtige Brittanje moes veg." .

'Gelyktydig met Een-en-twintig skryf Rabie in die vyftigerjare ook die roman Mens-alleen, wat egter eers in 1963 gepubliseer word. Die roman handel oor die lotgevalle van Lukas Alwyn wat na 'n veroordeling op geheimsinnige wyse losgelaat word, deur die stad dwaal, by 'n ondergrondse versetbeweging aansluit, 'n dooie man se plek en identiteit oorneem, op dié se vrou verlief raak en aan die einde sy volle verantwoordelikheid as mens aanvaar as hy haar kind deur die strate lei. Die "aktuele" agtergrond word opsetlik vaag gehou en die hoofaksent val op die angs en stryd van Lukas Alwyn teen verskillende bomenslike magte wat hom in 'n… Read more

(London, Oxford University Press, 1970). 210 x 140 mm; wraps, rather rubbed; pp. x + 399; 23 black-and-white illustrations (some being pull-out charts); a little pencil underlining. Fair to good condition. "Professor Radcliffe-Brown, in an introductory essay, reviews the general principles underlying African systems of kinship and marriage, and traces the legal and social implications of the rules and customs regulating kinship ties and marriage in various societies both past and present. Each of the other contributors analyses a distinctive pattern of kinship organization and marriage custom as expressed in different societies in Africa today. The study is of great importance to scientific sociology, and also has a direct bearing on those urgent practical problems which arise when peoples who have lived in a largely kin-bound society are reacting to pressures and incentives from another social world." .

Aan die ander kant het sy vyande heel dikwels van hom 'n karikatuur probeer maak en hom aanspreeklik gehou vir dinge wat hy nie gedoen het nie. … Ander volksfigure het groot dinge gedoen, het groot prestasies gelewer, maar na hulle dood het hulle volksgenote hulle vergeet of was hulle slegs vae herinneringe. Paul Kruger sal egter voortleef." .

The Boston Globe newspapercomments on Semrad's influence, and his belief that "failure in love brings people to [the psychiatrist] and only some success in love will send them away again." The genius of Elvin Semrad "bloomed in personal situations: when he sat with a patient, a student, or a group, made heart to heart contact, and shared an occasional comment. This is the Semrad remembered, loved, and respected by generations of colleagues and students: Semrad the gifted clinician and teacher." This book is a compendium of Semrad's opinions on such subjects as the body, feeling, love, men and women, leaving home, marriage, work, belief, decision making, etc. .

Born and bred in a working-class Indian settlement in Durban, he trained as a teacher and made his name as a successful coach in both swimming and professional football. Then, aged 34, pursued by security police, he fled into exile. He mobilised the international isolation of apartheid sport from his flat in London, becoming at once a hero of the liberation struggle for many black South Africans and Public Enemy Number One for many whites. In 1991, he returned home, played a leading role in the unity process and was elected as President of NOCSA, the National Olympic Committee of South Africa. With care and expertise, he has directed the nation's rehabilitation into the Olympic movement,… Read more
