Zebra Press and Kalk Bay Books invite you to the launch of

   A Rumour of Spring
     by Max du Preez
In A Rumour of Spring, Max Du Preez looks at the legacies of Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki, and examines Jacob Zuma’s presidency. In the context of corruption, populism and tragedies such as Marikana, the book considers the current state of the ruling party and the opposition. It dissects issues currently afflicting our society, including the state of education, land reform, crime and policing, the judiciary, nationality and race. And then, with images of the Arab Spring fresh in our collective memory, it dares to look to the future and what it may hold.
An honest and balanced account, A Rumour of Spring tackles the questions asked by ordinary South Africans every day: How are we really doing? What is really going on in our country? How should we understand what is happening here? And will it get any better?
Max will be in conversation with John Maytham
