African magic : traditional ideas that heal a continent by Heidi Holland( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Africa's traditional beliefs - including ancestor worship, divination and witchcraft - continue to dominate its spiritual influences. Readers in search of a better understanding of the continent will be enriched by this book's timely exploration of sub-Saharan Africa's natural philosophy. The author's meticulous research reveals that, whereas technology-driven Western societies prefer to rely largely on logical explanations, many Africans continue to obey their intuition - trusting in images, dreams and divination to rationalise misfortune and illness. African magic explains why so many Africans understand the relationship between people and unfortunate events not through the Western concept of chance in the case of accidents, or germ theory in the case of illness, but through belief in witchcraft. The book records a collection of true stories which illustrate this traditional belief system, including: The famous Malawian diviner whose prophecies were considered so accurate that people flocked from neighbouring countries to consult him; a group of Western-trained Mozambican psychologists who successfully refined cross-cultural therapy by working with traditional healers to combat post-traumatic stress syndrome among child soldiers; Ghanaian and Zimbabwean "witches" living in a nightmare world where popular belief becomes their reality; and a Zambian archbishop whose attempt to embrace traditional African beliefs provoked serious conflict within his Christian church"--Cover

100 years of struggle : Mandela's ANC by Heidi Holland( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite the ANC being at the height of its powers, its future is today less certain than at any time in its long history. In the past, the liberation movement went through two enormous transformations with remarkable agility; the first at the instigation of the hot-headed young rebel, Nelson Mandela. He brought about changes that drove the organisation from gentlemanly petitions to armed resistance. The second great shake-up in the ANC occurred over twenty years ago as Mandela emerged from prison, when the movement transformed itself from deep socialist militancy to centre-left political respectability. The ANC's struggle for freedom was supposed to have ended with its election to office in 1994, when it defeated apartheid. But rampant unemployment, income distribution as skewed as anywhere on earth, catastrophic corruption, inferior education and lingering racial tensions cast shadows that lengthen with each passing year. Whether the ANC, with its current leadership, still has the flexibility to transform itself and survive the anarchistic onslaught of politicians like Julius Malema remains to be seen

Born in Soweto : inside the heart of the new South Africa( Visual )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A letter from the director: On the surface Soweto appears a squalid, dusty, impoverished town, but the spirit of the town is to be found in the people who live there, in their music, dance and laughter. During the last twenty years of apartheid, the images, made familiar to us are of violent confrontations between blacks and whites, blacks and blacks-images of necklacings and carnage spring to mind when Soweto is mentioned. I came to understand that many things other than suffering make the township what it is. I had the privilege to witness the courage, tenacity and hopes for the future in the new South Africa. Life in Soweto may be squalid and tense, but it is also creative and exiting, and I trust that the film reflects this
