In The Eight Zulu Kings, well-respected and widely published historian John Laband examines the reigns of the eight Zulu kings from 1816 to the present.
Starting with King Shaka, the renowned founder of the Zulu kingdom, he charts the lives of the kings Dingane, Mpande, Cetshwayo, Dinuzulu, Solomon and Cyprian, to today’s King Goodwill Zwelithini whose role is little more than ceremonial.
In the course of this investigation Laband places the Zulu monarchy in the context of African kingship and tracks and analyses the trajectory of the Zulu kings from independent and powerful pre-colonial African rulers to largely powerless traditionalist figures in post-apartheid South Africa.

An epic tale of war and passion. Two star-crossed lovers must fight for their countries in the hope they may survive the war and find each other amidst the ruins of Europe.
In War Cry, we were introduced to the newest member of the famous family, the brilliant and brave Saffron Courtney. Saffron meets and falls in love with the idealistic Gerhard von Meerbach, who is struggling to come to terms with the path his family and country are taking in 1930s Germany, only for them to be cruelly separated by the arrival of WW2.
In Courtney's War, we follow Saffron and Gerhard throughout the war as they fight for their countries in the hope that one day peace will come and they will find each other once again.
Saffron spends the war as an agent in the Special Operations Executive, risking her life in daredevil missions behind enemy lines. To protect his family, Gerhard must hide his opposition to the war and the Nazi party, and work as a fighter pilot. Ultimately his opinions and hatred for the brutal regime will lead him into very dangerous waters.
A dramatic, compelling adventure, filled with truly gripping scenes of the brutality of war. It's also a story of love. Love for one's country and the undying love of two people for each other against all the odds.

The former Assistant to the President and Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison in the Trump White House provides a jaw-dropping look into the corruption and controversy of the current administration.
Few have been a member of Donald Trump’s inner orbit longer than Omarosa Manigault Newman.
Their relationship has spanned fifteen years—through four television shows, a presidential campaign, and a year by his side in the most chaotic, outrageous White House in history.
But that relationship has come to a decisive and definitive end, and Omarosa is finally ready to share her side of the story in this explosive, jaw-dropping account.
A stunning tell-all and takedown from a strong, intelligent woman who took every name and number, Unhinged is a must-read for any concerned citizen.
Manigault-Newman, the former Apprentice contestant turned top White House aide, has been creating quite a buzz about her book in recent days. Over the weekend, she appeared on NBC’s Meet the Press, during which she played a recording of Chief of Staff John Kelly firing her in the White House Situation Room in December, and accused the Trump campaign of trying to buy her silence. On Monday, she played another tape, this time of a phone call with Trump, who seemed dismayed after she was fired. VOX
It has all the ingredients of a great novel; power, sex, race and money. Light on policy and heavy on the personal, Omarosa Manigault Newman’s Unhinged: An Insider Account of the Trump White House is a prime candidate for this summer’s best in beach reading. the Guardian

Ton Vosloo’s remarkable career in the media spanned nearly 60 years in South Africa’s history. During this turbulent time, South Africa went through the transition from Afrikaner Nationalist rule to an ANC government. At the helm of the leading press group founded in 1913 to support nascent Afrikaner nationalism, Vosloo’s story is not just one of newspapers and politics but also one of singular business and commercial success as the Naspers Group evolved from a print group to an electronic company with significant investments across the world.
In 1983 Vosloo was appointed managing director of Naspers and set about vigorously transforming the group. On the ideological front, it was a fight to the death with the old Transvaal’s predominantly right-wing Perskor Group for the soul of the Afrikaner. On the commercial front, Vosloo established the pay television network M-Net. In 1992, Vosloo became chairman of Naspers with Koos Bekker succeeding him as CEO. The story of Naspers’ successes in investing in Chinese internet company Tencent and in establishing a footprint in 130 countries is a continuing one, but one begun under Vosloo’s stewardship.
In Across Boundaries, Vosloo gives his account of these momentous times with wry humour and a journalist’s deft pen.
