The Runaway Horses by Joyce Kotzè
The Runaway Horses recounts the personal cost to family during wartime.
In her historical novel The Runaway Horses, author Joyce Kotzè portrays an engrossing tale of the injustice of the 1899-1902 Boer War in Africa.
Two sets of cousins, Boer and British, find their destinies inexorably intertwined in the politics and mayhem of the conflict. From Transvaal to Victorian England, the cousins form strong bonds, which are tested on the battlefields of South Africa.

How Long Will South Africa Survive? by R W Johnson
In 1977, Johnson’s best-selling How Long Will South Africa Survive? provided a controversial and highly original analysis of the survival prospects of apartheid. Now, after more than 20 years of ANC rule, he believes the situation has become so critical that the question must be posed again.
“The big question about ANC rule,” Johnson writes, “is whether African nationalism would be able to cope with the challenges of running a modern industrial economy. 20 years of ANC rule have shown conclusively that the party is hopelessly ill-equipped for this task. Indeed, everything suggests that South Africa under the ANC is fast slipping backward and that even the survival of South Africa as a unitary state cannot be taken for granted. The fundamental reason why the question of regime change has to be posed is that it is now clear that South Africa can either choose to have an ANC government or it can have a modern industrial economy. It cannot have both.”
Johnson’s analysis is strikingly original and cogently argued. He has for several decades now been the senior international commentator on South African affairs, known for his lucid analysis and complete lack of deference towards the conventional wisdom.
