"South Africa possesses one of the richest popular music traditions in the world - from marabi to mbaqanga, from boeremusiek to bubblegum, from kwela to kwaito. Yet the risk that future generations of South Africans will not know their musical roots is very real. Of all the recordings made here since the 1930s, thousands have been lost for ever, for the powers-that-be never deemed them worthy of preservation. If one peruses the books that exist on South African popular music, one still finds that their authors have on occasion jumped to conclusions that were not as foregone as they had assumed. Yet the fault lies not with them, rather in the fact that there has been precious little documentation in South Africa of who played what, or who recorded what, with whom, and when. This is true of all music-making in this country, though it is most striking in the music of the black communities. Beyond memory: recording the history, moments and memories of South African music is an invaluable publication becauseit offers a first-hand account of the South African music scene of the past decades from the pen of Max Thamagana Mojapelo, who was situated in the very thick of things, thanks to his job as a DJ at the South African Broadcasting Corporation. This book -astonishing for the breadth of its coverage - is based on his diaries, on interviews he conducted and on numerous other sources, and we find in it not only the well-known names of recent South African music but a countless host of others whose contribution must be recorded if we and future generations are to gain an accurate picture of South African music history of the late 20th and early 21st centuries"--Publisher's description.

Lisa Fugard's Skinner's Drift is a beautifully written début that reveals the secrets and violence buried beneath the earth of a South African farm. Skinner's Drift, lying amongst the sandstone rocks of the eastern borders of South Africa, beside the snaking bed of the Limpopo River, was Eva Van Rensburg's home. As a young girl she would range through its mopane trees at night, hunting jackals with her stammering father. But as soon as she grew up, Eva fled the farm and has not returned for more than ten years. Now, as her father lies dying in hospital with only his claustrophobic sister for company, Eva must go back to confront her family and remember the beauty, and the horror, of her life on Skinner's Drift. Praise for Skinner's Drift: 'A wonderfully brave novel - unflinchingly and lovingly written. It is books like this - books that shake the dust out of our heads and hearts - that allow us all to understand our past slightly better and walk forward more confidently' Alexandra Fuller 'An achingly beautiful book' Monica Ali 'Fugard wonderfully captures the swift rivers of change in which contempt and fear, resentment, righteousness and loyalty churn in one unending torrent' Daily Mail Lisa Fugard grew up in South Africa and now lives in the desert of Southern California with her husband and young son. Her short stories have been published in magazines and literary journals and she has written many travel pieces for the New York Times. Skinner's Drift is her first novel.

A fascinating look at the vicious aftermath of the uprising of 16 June 1976, and the role of the African National Congress, the United Democratic Front, the Inkatha Freedom Party, the National Party and other role players in the story of this unique place of laughter and suffering. The plight of scholars and students, the Defiance Campaign, the move to armed struggle, the State of Emergency, the grip of crime and violent confrontation were all to take their toll on the people of the township before the era of reform promised that long-awaited freedom - for both the people of Soweto and the rest of the nation.

The sixteenth of June 2001 is the 25th anniversary of the Soweto youth uprising, an event commemorated in this book as ordinary people recollect their experiences of those fateful days in their own words. From interviews with 26 people who were enrolled at schools across Soweto in 1976, interspersed with extracts from the report of the Cillie Commission, the events are reconstructed, giving a nuanced and revealing picture of the time. For some of the interviewees, participating in this book was the first opportunity they ever had of talking about what happened and how it has affected their lives since. historical photographs enhance the text and create a visual flash-back to a time when police vans, uniforms, fashions, vehicles, houses and Soweto streets looked very different to today. A short authoritative introduction by a respected historian provides context. This book aims to look back at the Soweto uprising through the eyes of ordinary youngsters who experienced it themselves. It makes our sad history come alive, in a gripping reconstruction which cannot but leave one touched.
