    The World That Made Mandela: A Heritage Trail – 70 Sites of Significance

    Luli Callinicos, one of South Africa’s eminent historians, has created an extraordinary documentary of a book in which geography and history blend, and the collective life and image of a nation is focused through the life of one individual – Nelson Mandela.

    Using a thousand images of past and present, The World That Made Mandela moves from rural villages to the hectic metropolis, from Districy Six to Robben Island. Tracing his footsteps through sites of public struggle and private development, it illuminates many hidden spaces in our history, while casting new light on the familiar.

    South Africans will find The World That Made Mandela a rich reflection of their cultural and political heritage, and visitors to the country will discover in it the faces of our past and our people.

    “This fine book brings to light our living history. Here are the people and events of our past, commemorated in the places that map the pathway to our country’s liberation.” – Nelson Mandela

    “Every South African should read this book.” – Walter Sisulu

    “Greatness is inborn. But it is what it makes of the time, place and circumstances with which and in which it develops that it is manifest. Luli Callinicos has done something prodigious. The World That Made Mandela is a stunningly fascinating book, on a level high above hagiography, graphic – in both rare photographs and informative text – a fulfilling experience of the exaltation and tragedy by which history, in the hands of greatness, moves on, and leaves its traces for us to visit in sites and landscapes.” – Nadine Gordimer

  • Through the Darkness: A Life in Zimbabwe

    R150

    Through the Darkness: A Life In Zimbabwe is a book long anticipated. Judith Todd’s chronicle of Mugabe’s crimes against his people appals, yet the life of the subtitle has been a high-spirited crusade for justice, democracy and freedom of the press.

    Firmly attached to the progressive values of her parents Grace and Garfield Todd erstwhile prime minister of colonial Southern Rhodesia benevolent paternalists engaged in ranching, healing, teaching and politicking in south-west Zimbabwe since 1934, their daughter has proven to be cut from the same cloth.

    She was exiled in 1972 by the late Ian Smith, Zimbabwe’s last white prime minister, and stripped of her citizenship by the Mugabe government in 2003. Todd now holds New Zealand citizenship and lives in Cape Town, South Africa.

    When Todd returned to Zimbabwe from exile in Britain shortly before independence in 1980, and soon realised that, far from being the solution to Zimbabwe’s ills, Robert Mugabe and his ruling Zanu (PF) party were increasingly becoming the problem. She says when asked what she thinks went wrong in the country that “it’s almost as if Mugabe is angry he is mortal and wants everyone else to die before he does.”

    As the country slid into economic and social decline, Todd had a front-row view from her position as director of a local development agency. Over the first 25 years of Mugabe’s rule, she kept journals, notes and copies of letters and documents from which she has compiled an intensely personal account of life in Zimbabwe. These make up Through the Darkness: A Life in Zimbabwe.

    Todd’s narrative allows her to record slowly, becoming aware of how ruthlessly the party will enforce its authority and how totally it will contain and then eliminate everything that it regards as dissidence. Only by using the narrative method that she has used is Todd able to convey not only her slow disillusionment but to speak with authority about what is happening. Her authority derives from her presence, from the fact that she records nothing that she has not directly experienced.

  • Tiepolo and the Pictorial Intelligence

    R370


    Tiepolo is a brilliant example of the specifically pictorial intelligence. This book is both a study of his art and an argument for fuller recognition of the peculiarities of the painters’ representational medium. Svetlana Alpers and Michael Baxandall locate distinctive modes of Tiepolo’s representation of the world and human action; follow his process of invention from first pen drawings through small oil-sketches to great frescoes; and analyze his best and biggest painting, the Four Continents, in the Stairway Hall of the Prince-Bishop’s Residence at Wurzburg, which is illustrated with photographs specially taken for the book.
