Displayed on European stages from 1810 to 1815 as the Hottentot Venus, Sara Baartman was one of the most famous women of her day, and also one of the least known. As the Hottentot Venus, she was seen by Westerners as alluring and primitive, a reflection of their fears and suppressed desires. But who was Sara Baartman? Who was the woman who became the Hottentot Venus? Based on research and interviews that span three continents, "Sara Baartman and the Hottentot Venus" tells the entwined histories of an illusive life and a famous icon. In doing so, the book raises questions about the possibilities and limits of biography for understanding those who live between and among different cultures. In reconstructing Baartman's life, the book traverses the South African frontier and its genocidal violence, cosmopolitan Cape Town, the ending of the slave trade, the Industrial Revolution, the French Revolution, the Napoleonic Wars, London and Parisian high society, and the rise of racial science.The authors discuss the ramifications of discovering that when Baartman went to London, she was older than originally assumed, and they explore the enduring impact of the Hottentot Venus on ideas about women, race, and sexuality. The book concludes with the politics involved in returning Baartman's remains to her home country, and connects Baartman's story to her descendants in nineteenth- and twentieth-century South Africa. "Sara Baartman and the Hottentot Venus" offers the authoritative account of one woman's life and reinstates her to the full complexity of her history.

Native life in South Africa is one of South Africa's great political books. First published in 1916, it was first and foremost a response to the Native's land Act of 1913, and was written by one of the most gifted and influential writers and journalists of his generation. Native life in South Africa provides an account of the origins of this crucially important piece of legislation, and a devastating description of its immediate effects. Plaatje spent many weeks traveling the countryside, and the most moving chapters in the title tell us what he saw. His book explores the wider historical and political context that produced policies of the kind embodied in the Land Act, and documents meticulously the steps by South Africa's rulers to exclude black South Africans from the exercise of political power.

Mindware is an introductory text with a difference. In eight short chapters it tells a story and invites the reader to join in some up-to-the-minute conceptual discussion of the key issues, problems, and opportunities in cognitive science. The story is about the search for a cognitive scientific understanding of mind. It is presented as a no-holds-barred journey from early work in Artificial Intelligence, through connectionist (artificial neural network) counter-visions, and onto neuroscience artificial life, dynamics and robotics. The journey ends with some wide-ranging and provacative speculation about the role of technology and the changing nature of the human mind itself. Each chapter is organized as an initial sketch of a research program or theme, followed by a substantial discussion section in which specific problems and issues (both familiear and cutting-edge) are raised and pursued. Discussion topics include mental causation, the hardware/software distinction, the relations between life and mind, the nature of perception, cognition and action, and the continuity (or otherwise) of high-level human intelligence with other forms of adaptive response. Classic topics are treated alongside the newer ones in an integrated treatment of the various discussions. The sketches and discussions are accompanied by numerous figures and boxed sections, and followed by suggestions for futher reading.

If, for most of the past in most parts of the world, most women have been 'hidden from history', black women in South Africa have been doubly hidden, both as women and because they are black. Three women - two of them black - meet in the pages of this title. Lily Moya was a Transkei schoolgirl growing up in lonely and alien surroundings. She sought help with her education from Mabel Palmer, an elderly white academic, then Organiser of the Natal University College's Non-European section. The third was Subusisiwe Makhanya, a remarkable Zulu woman and a pioneer social worker. Their letters illuminate more of the South African condition than the majority of history textbooks; the generosities, yet humiliations, of white liberalism; the nature of mission education; the socialisation of black girls; and the dilemmas they confront. They also reveal the separate worlds which we all inhabit, but which are made more frightening and more separate by the divisions of age, ethnicity and race.
