Pale Native: Memories of a Renegade Reporter in 2003

Max is back!

Kalk Bay Books & Umuzi invite you to the launch of the updated edition of Pale Native by Max du Preez

The entire political landscape has changed since Max du Preez published his much acclaimed book Pale Native: Memories of a Renegade Reporter in 2003.

This substantially revised edition has new chapters on the ‘bloodless coup’ of Polokwane, the demise (and updated assessment) of Thabo Mbeki, the Zuma and Malema Show, the rise of Cope,the 2009 election, the country’s slide into systemic corruption and the spectacular crash of the SABC, controversies in Afrikaner culture and politics (the Free State University racist video and the ‘De la Rey’ song),  and the murder of Eugene Terre’Blanche.

In this edition, Max continues the uncompromising, outspoken frankness that has won him admiration and got him into trouble with the new government as well as the old.
