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.

Winston Churchill en Jan Smuts het kopgestamp aan die begin van die Boere-Oorlog, maar het met verloop van tyd goeie vriende geword – en vir 50 jaar vriende gebly: Churchill het gehou van sigare, kos, drank, persoonlike lyfbediendes, luukse verblyf en lang vakansies; Smuts was asketies en het amper spartaans geleef, ’n nie-roker wat min drink, vroeg opstaan en lang ente stap. Richard Steyn was redakteur van die Natal Witness, ’n Nieman-genoot aan Harvard-universiteit, hoofredakteur van The Star en is die skrywer van Jan Smuts: Unafraid of Greatness.

The ongoing assassinations of anti-apartheid activists led to rumours that some kind of third force must be responsible. The South African government flatly denied any involvement. All investigations of the matter were met with stony silence.
The first crack in the wall came with the publication by the Vrye Weekblad newspaper of the extraordinary story of Dirk Coetzee, former Security Branch Captain. His tale of murder, kidnapping, bombing and poisoning provided corroboration of the shocking confessions made by Almond Nofemela on death row. Slowly the dark secret started unravelling under the probing of determined journalists.
In the Heart of the Whore introduces the reader to the secret underworld of the death squads. It explains when and why they were created, who ran them, what methods they employed, who the victims and perpetrators were.
Jacques Pauw was more closely involved with the subject than any other person outside the police and armed forces. In this groundbreaking work he looks at the devastating effect of the secret war on the opponents of apartheid as well as the corrosive effects on the people who committed these crimes.

A prominent Viennese psychiatrist before the war, Viktor Frankl was uniquely able toobserve the way that he and other inmates coped with the experience of being inAuschwitz. He noticed that it was the men who comforted others and who gave away theirlast piece of bread who survived the longest – and who offered proof that everything canbe taken away from us except the ability to choose our attitude in any given set ofcircumstances.The sort of person the prisoner became was the result of an inner decision and not ofcamp influences alone. Only those who allowed their inner hold on their moral andspiritual selves to subside eventually fell victim to the camps degenerating influence -while those who made a victory of those experiences turned them into an inner triumph.Frankl came to believe that mans deepest desire is to search for meaning and purpose.This outstanding work offers us all a way to transcend suffering and find significance inthe art of living.
