Een van Afrikaans se uitsonderlike kenmerke is die skat van idiome en vaste uitdrukkings wat soos poësie op die tong van sprekers lê. Ander taliges is dikwels verstom oor die manier waarop vaste uitdrukkings en gesegdes Afrikaans verryk en kleurvol maak. In hierdie boek bring Kobus Galloway, skepper van Idees Vol Vrees, 150 idiome byeen –elkeen geïllustreer met ’n grappige volblad-spotprent, en met ’n kort verklaring van elke idioom se betekenis. Verder is daar ’n lys met nóg idiome en verklarings agter in die boek. Afrikaanse lesers van alle ouderdomme sal daarvan hou, en skoliere in die besonder sal dit baie bruikbaar vind. Dié boek sal help verseker dat idiome van vroeg reeds ’n tuiste in die mond van jong sprekers kry, en dat dié pragtige skat van Afrikaans behoue sal bly.

65 Years of Friendship tells the heartrending story of a remarkable friendship between two remarkable men: world-renowned human-rights lawyer George Bizos, and Nelson Mandela. George and Madiba met as students at the University of the Witwatersrand in the 1940s. They would later become legal colleagues, and Mandela would become George Bizos most famous client soon after, for it was Bizos who formed part of his legal defence during the famous Treason Trial, and again during the Rivonia Trial, when Mandela and others faced the death penalty for plotting to overthrow the state. After seeing his friend sentenced to life imprisonment instead, Bizos became Mandelas lifeline, navigating the complicated network of the Struggle. Working tirelessly, be it by secretly meeting Oliver Tambo in exile or arguing for the abolishment of the death penalty in the Constitutional Court years later, Bizos offered his unwavering support to Mandela on his long walk towards a democratic South Africa. In this touching homage to their friendship, George Bizos tells a fascinating tale of two men whose work affected the lives of all South Africans.
