What happens when South Africa?s tumultuous political life becomes entangled in the courts of law? Throughout the past 50 years, the courts have been a battleground for contesting political forces as more and more conflicts that were once fought in Parliament or in streets, or through strikes and media campaigns, find their way to the judiciary. Certainly, the legal system was used by both the apartheid state and its opponents. But it is in the post-apartheid era, and in particular under the rule of President Jacob Zuma, that we have witnessed a dramatic increase in ?lawfare?: the migration of politics to the courts. The authors show through a series of case studies how just about every aspect of political life ends up in court: the arms deal, the demise of the Scorpions, the Cabinet reshuffle, the expulsion of the EFF from Parliament, the nuclear procurement process, the Cape Town mayor ? the list goes on and on. This book offers a highly readable analysis of some of the most widely publicised and decisive instances of lawfare. It argues that while it is good that the judiciary is able to shoulder the burden of supporting democracy, it is showing signs of immense strain under the present deluge of political cases. Whether the courts will survive this strain undamaged remains to be seen.
In life I was a scientist called Fanning. Then, in a jungle in Bolivia, I died. I died, and then I was brought back to life... Prompted by a voice that lives in her blood, the fearsome warrior known as Alicia of Blades is drawn towards to one of the great cities of The Time Before. The ruined city of New York. Ruined but not empty. For this is the final refuge of Zero, the first and last of The Twelve. The one who must be destroyed if mankind is to have a future. What she finds is not what she´s expecting. A journey into the past. To find out how it all began. And an opponent at once deadlier and more human than she could ever have imagined. The Passage - soon to be an epic drama on Fox from writer Elizabeth Heldens and executive producer Ridley Scott.
Realties is, at its core, a battle between good and evil with Biblical overtones. On the evil side (and the protagonist of the novel) is Illyad, a physically huge figure who thinks nothing of killing both those who follow him (primarily through intimidation) and those who oppose him. He possesses time control powers but he uses them for far more than simply slipping back and forth between the three time eras he holds sway over on the distant planet Valleria. He uses his temporal abilities to age his opponents to the point of death and causes buildings to fall by aging their support structures. Illyad, by his own words, craves power above all things, including women and drink (although he craves them as well).
Debut author Sally Thorne bursts on the scene with a hilarious and sexy workplace comedy all about that thin, fine line between hate and love. Nemesis (n.) 1) An opponent or rival whom a person cannot best or overcome. 2) A person´s undoing 3) Joshua Templeman Lucy Hutton and Joshua Templeman hate each other. Not dislike. Not begrudgingly tolerate. Hate. And they have no problem displaying their feelings through a series of ritualistic passive aggressive maneuvers as they sit across from each other, executive assistants to co-CEOs of a publishing company. Lucy can´t understand Joshua´s joyless, uptight, meticulous approach to his job. Joshua is clearly baffled by Lucy´s overly bright clothes, quirkiness, and Pollyanna attitude. Now up for the same promotion, their battle of wills has come to a head and Lucy refuses to back down when their latest game could cost her her dream job...But the tension between Lucy and Joshua has also reached its boiling point, and Lucy is discovering that maybe she doesn´t hate Joshua. And maybe, he doesn´t hate her either. Or maybe this is just another game.
