启动:对抗种族隔离作者:John Dugard(11月6日)

南非在国内和纳米比亚都因其种族隔离政策和做法而声名狼藉。

今天,以色列被控在自1967年以来占领的巴勒斯坦领土上实行种族隔离。对抗种族隔离examines the regimes of these three societies from the perspective of the author's experiences as a human rights lawyer in South Africa and Namibia and as a UN human rights envoy in occupied Palestine.

大多数关于南非种族隔离的个人历史都讲述了武装斗争的故事。

This book is about opposition to apartheid within the law and through the law.

The successes and failures of civil society and lawyers in this endeavour are described in the context of the discriminatory and oppressive regime of apartheid.

作者在纳米比亚和南非的亲身经历有助于说明该政权的不公正性以及律师在法律范围内推进人权的途径。The end of apartheid and the transition to democracy are also described through the experiences of the author.

The book concludes with an account of Israel's occupation of the Palestinian territories of East Jerusalem,加沙地带和西岸以及作者作为联合国人权调查员和记者的工作。

这涉及到对犹太人定居点建设等问题的审查,巴勒斯坦房屋的拆除,作者认为,对行动自由的限制以及对巴勒斯坦人生命和自由的攻击构成了一个国际法下的种族隔离定义范围内的压迫性政权。

另一章专门介绍了作者近十年来密切关注的加沙局势。

纳米比亚,South Africa and Palestine are dealt with separately with introductions designed to ensure that the reader is provided with the necessary historical,political and legal background material.

启动:Born To Kwaito作者:Esinako Ndabeni和Sihle Mthembu(10月25日)

Born To Kwaitoconsiders the meaning of kwaito music now.‘Now' not only as in ‘after 1994' or the Truth Commission but as a place in the psyche of black people in post-apartheid South Africa.

这本散文集论述了这一流派衰落后意义的变化和其不断争议的相关性。通过严谨的历史分析以及叙事新闻的脉络Born To Kwaito审问艺术自治问题,音乐中的语言政治,音乐是否是南非大型女权运动的一部分。

Candid and insightful interviews from the genre's foremost innovators and torchbearers,比如曼德拉·斯皮奇里,亚瑟·马福盖特,Robbie Malinga and Lance Stehr,provide unique historical context to kwaito music's greatest highs,最迷人的打击和最毁灭性的低谷。Born To Kwaitooffers up a history of the genre from below by having conversations not only with musicians but with fans,工程师,见证革命的摄影师和电影制片人。

生活在一个地方之间的批评和传记,Born To Kwaitomerges academic theories and rigorous journalism to offer a new understanding into how the genre influenced other art forms such as fashion,电视和电影。这本书还反映了一些最畅销的音乐是如何通过当地嘻哈的当政者的口中找到了新的生活,并将夸伊托推向了新的一代。

这本书并没有假装是一个详尽的历史类型,而是一个目前的积极分析,因为它解决并找到了它的意义。

启动:这些骨头会再长起来的Panashe Chigumadzi(8月17日)

一本过时的书,津巴布韦选举将于2018年7月举行,这些骨头会再长起来的responds to the November 2017 ousting of Robert Mugabe,探索导致“政变而非政变”的事件,从而结束了他37年的统治。

这篇长篇文章汇集了大胆的报道,回忆录和批判性分析,从根本上重塑国家的政治和文化历史,recognising the role of women,workers and urban movements in its liberation struggle.

In a searing account,这些骨头会再长起来的explores the heady post-independence days of the 80s,the economic downturn of the 90s,通过对世纪末快速通道土地改革政策的影响。

在津巴布韦官方版本的历史中,Chigumadzi通过与两个祖先的灵魂(反殖民女英雄Nbuya Nehanda)的代祷,获得了过去和现在复杂的个人历史。津巴布韦革命的始祖,and her own beloved grandmother,who passed shortly before the de facto coup.

这是一项探索损失的鼓舞人心的工作,恢复和记忆提醒我们人类对自由的普遍和永恒的冲动,共同的归属感和希望的意愿。

启动:Things We Don't Talk About.Ever.作者:Desiree Anne Martin(8月7日)

20世纪80年代开普敦的种族隔离,五岁的德西丽·安妮正在努力研究如何将她的柏油娃娃的皮肤变甜,柔软的百合白。

What she has learnt is that Whites are better than ‘Slamse' and much better than ‘Kaffirs'.

她不知道如何迫使父亲停止酗酒或赌博,或让母亲爱她,或让男孩和男人停止秘密接触她。

她学会了如何减轻疼痛:通过秘密的手淫和说谎。每年夏天,她也会在圣经联合营里把自己的生命和心献给耶稣。

当她长大后,she begins to understand the rules of living in her depressed family as well as in her fractured community: We Don't Talk About It.Ever.在她十几岁的时候,带着丛林的笨拙,不守规矩的头发,支撑,and a body shorter and rounder than a Womble – and now firmly planted in a ‘White School',Desiree-Anne is forced to confront her ‘Coloured identity crisis'.

She turns to self-harm,disordered eating,the thrill of petty theft and escapism through books and acting.虽然她在UCT获得了学习戏剧的机会,感觉到父母负担不起学费,她选择去英国在酒吧迷路,clubs and pills.

回到南非后,她接受了“自由的爱”迷幻恍惚俱乐部的场景,但当她遇到达伦时,a heroin addict,她转向针。她对爱和接受的追求,随着静脉注射吸毒者的出现,进入了自我毁灭的漩涡。

这是一本关于沉迷黑暗的令人痛心的回忆录,但这也是一个感人的,有时是幽默的故事,一个小女孩变成了女人的深切需要和鲁莽的追求爱情。

几年后,当德西丽·安妮终于找到了康复之路,她发现了自己真实的声音来谈论和写一些以前没有说出口的事情。

Launch –就是这样:南非的真实故事由扶正生命集体(6月12日)

This is How It Isis a collection of real life experiences.Most of these writers have never been published before.They wrote primarily to explore themselves,发挥自己的创造力,and to bear witness to their lives and the times in which we live.把创伤性的经历写在纸上可以帮助一个人蒙羞,guilt and fear down,走出可能让他们困了多年的魔法圈。

Writing is sometimes able to turn a painful incident into something more manageable,甚至漂亮。这是艺术实践的力量的一个方面——我们可以接受困扰我们的模糊感觉,并在世界上形成它。The stories inspired by our experiences can reveal what we didn't know we knew,在页面上成形。自我发现与自我恢复有关,but communication does not end there: those who are willing to share their stories can have a valuable impact on us,as readers,通过揭示他们人性的各个方面。

In addition,the writers may experience healing through having their experiences witnessed.Engaging with this ‘other' by listening to what happened to them cuts across those things that separate us: sexism,种族主义,年龄歧视,民族主义和性别刻板印象。Often we discover that we are more alike than we are different.Our beautiful world is in trouble,much of it because we are not paying attention to what is right in front of us.When the facts don't stir us to reconsider,story can.这本选集是对地下涌浪有意义的改变的贡献。It invites us to become curious and reflective rather than fearful and defensive.It encourages us to climb down from the ladder of hierarchy and competition,加入关系与人性的圈子,通过变得脆弱到足以分享和倾听我们自己和彼此的半隐藏的故事。

这本选集是我们希望成为年度版本的试点年。今年的主题,‘This is how it is',speaks of truth-telling and the relief of being able to communicate openly and honestly about things that are usually difficult – suicide,extra-marital affairs,精神病,种族主义,untimely death.

“一个强大的生命故事集写在一个愈合空间。”–Pregs政府官员

"We forget that the most daring thing we can do is to allow ourselves to be seen.站在世界面前,说这就是我。This is how it is."—邦加尼·科纳,2016年凯恩奖入围者兼联合编辑Migrations

"The writers in this triumphant anthology are both courageous and candid,allowing the reader a glimpse into their lives.There is need for more of this writing in South African literature."– Sara-Jayne King

“令人耳目一新,poignant and wide-ranging,这一系列以不同寻常的视角给人惊喜,并为众多人才提供了发言权。”—海伦·莫菲特

启动:Brutal Legacy特蕾西·戈(2月28日)www.xf839.com

When South Africa's golden girl of broadcasting,Tracy Going's battered face was splashed across the media back in the late 1990s,整个国家都震惊了。

南非人已经习惯了看到去,glamorous and groomed on television or hearing her resonant voice on Radio Metro and Kaya FM.Sensational headlines of a whirlwind love relationship turned horrendously violent threw the "perfect"家庭生活陷入混乱。一开始是一个童话般的浪漫故事,和一个看起来像是一切都在寻找的男人——迷人的,handsome and successful – had quickly descended into a violent,abusive relationship.

“当我站在他面前时,我能看到的只有谎言,几天没有警告就消失了,the screaming,the threats,恐怖,the hostage-holding,the keeping me up all night,把我拽着头发穿过房子,窒息,门在我周围锁着,the phones disconnected,隔离,the fear and the uncertainty."

The rosy love cloud burst just five months after meeting her "Prince Charming"当她跌跌撞撞地走进当地警察局时,伤痕累累。A short relationship became a two-and-a-half-year legal ordeal played out in the public eye.在迷人的细节中,Going takes us through the harrowing court process – a system seeped in injustice – her decline into depression,the immediate collapse of her career due to the highly public nature of her assault and the decades-long journey to undo the psychological damages in the search for safety and the reclaiming of self.

The roots of violence form the backdrop of the book,在英国的一个情节中追寻童年,laced with the unpredictable violence of an alcoholic father who regularly terrorised the family with his fists of rage.

“我为我父亲感到羞耻,酒鬼。如果他不把酒廊里的液体倒掉,那么他会在高尔夫俱乐部的罐子里找到安慰和配偶。当我躺在床上等待他回来的时候,不确定就随之而来了。我会躺在那里,用我的小手紧紧地握住窗帘。I would pull the fabric down,几乎笔直,forming a strained sliver and I would peer into the blackness,取消链接。我似乎一直在观望和等待。Sometimes I searched for satellites between the twinkles of light,但我肚子里的恐惧让我分心了。”

Brilliantly penned,this highly skilled debut memoir,最终是在意识到疗愈是一个漫长而艰难的过程,自我宽恕和接受对于完全拥抱生命是至关重要的过程中得到提升。
