Dannie Abse´s rich mixture of Welsh and Jewish backgrounds, and his dual occupations of doctor and author, have led to what is widely regarded as one of the most readable, humorous and poignant autobiographies since the war.

Lobbying and political interest groups occupy an ambivalent place in advanced democracies. Lobbying is viewed with suspicion, but is also a critical avenue for voices in policy debates. This insightful book injects a new sociological understanding of politics and policy. Interest groups help set political agendas, provide support to policymakers, and mobilize resources around issues. Interest groups are also the means by which individuals and organizations achieve advantage over others in social and economic life. The book incorporates theory and research about interest groups into political sociology´s approach to issues of power, inequality, and public policy. As the book convincingly reveals, a sociological understanding of lobbying and interest groups illustrates the edges and boundaries of representative democracy itself. Using case studies and data, and organized by topics such as influence, collective action, representation, and inequality, the book is a critical resource for students of policymaking and political sociology.

In The Chapter We Wrote, Len Kalane, former editor of the newspaper, tells not only the story of City Press, but also a tale of the stories and events that shaped contemporary South Africa. Kalane traces the birth of City Press in the 1950s and the early days of the newspaper, along with its iconic sister publication, Drum magazine. He details the role that Naspers, who bought the paper in the 1980s, and the erstwhile apartheid communication machinery played behind the scenes in an attempt to reconcile two constituencies ? Afrikaner and black nationalist ? and to move South Africa out of its political conundrum and towards a negotiated, peaceful settlement.The book is in memory of author and journalist Percy Qoboza, and also incorporates a selection of his columns. It brings vividly to life the newsrooms of an iconic South African brand, and will be useful to students, academics and the interested lay reader.
