Die meeste van my gedigte is glad nie geskik vir kinders nie, en om dit aan kinders te gee, om uit die kop te leer en om dit op te sê - want "voordra" kan 'n mens dit werklik nie noem nie - is net om hulle 'n afsku vir poësie te laat kry. … Ek het dus die eenvoudigste gedigte uitgekies, en hier en daar het ek 'n paar verklarende aantekeninge bygesit, wat die kind miskien, as hy die boek sonder 'n meester gebruik, kan vooruit help.' .

Fine condition. "The armed struggle waged by the ANC's military wing, Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK), was the longest sustained insurgency in South African history. This book offers the first full account of the rebellion in its entirety, from its early days in the 1950s to the inauguration of Nelson Mandela as South African president in 1994. Vast in scope, this story traverses every corner of South Africa and extends throughout southern Africa, where MK's largest campaigns and heaviest engagements occurred, as well as to the solidarity networks that the rebellion mobilised around the world. Drawing principally from previously unpublished writings and testimonies by the men and women who fought the armed struggle, this book recreates the drama, heroism and tragedy of their experiences. ...

(Grahamstown: Rhodes University, 1981) 086810034X. Occasional Paper Number Twenty-Six, Institute of Social and Economic Research. 226 x 158 mm; pictorial wrappers; pp. iv + 56. Slightly rubbed; occasional fox spot. Good to very good condition. "The Gcaleka people of the Transkei speak of going out to work in the urban-industrial centres of South Africa as going to 'war' and celebrate the return of a migrant worker with joy and thanksgiving. One of the rituals which marks return is a beer drink called umsindleko. In this study umsindleko is examined within the context of a series of ritual events associated with labour migration, and against a background of economic dependence on the earnings of migrant workers. Drawing extensively on the skilful oratory performed at umsindleko the relationship between Gcaleka society and the world of wage employment is explored, in an attempt to illustrate the 'meaning' of labour migration to the people involved in it." .

Very good condition. "The demand for a non-racial democracy is the common ground that unites the widest range of forces for change in South Africa today. Frederikse likens the advocacy of non-racialism to an unbreakable thread running through the history of the liberation struggle; though wearing thin at times, it has been ever-present and so strongly reinforced since the 1976 Soweto uprising as to eclipse all rival trends. Based on five years of research, Frederikse weaves into her narrative excerpts from her interviews, documents of popular organisations, speeches and freedom songs. With 75 photographs and graphics, this is a brilliant work of scholarship, highly accessible and suitable for teaching at university and school level." .

It is a presentation of Cape Town as seen by two comparative strangers from the Transvaal who were drawn to the Cape by its warmhearted, white-gabled friendliness. Papas has attempted with his drawings to get between the covers of a book the history-soaked atmosphere of the city while Sussens has contributed legends and anecdotes to bring to life the personality and the personalities of a… Read More
