The Ranter's Guide to South Africa is a snappy, humorous debunking, A-Z, of all the hot air and rabble rousing that steams up the public debate in South Africa today. With short, sharp definitions it punctures the bombast, bias and rampant populism which circulate on all sides -- as well as deflating our national love of euphemism. Ever wondered what waffle like "accountability", "site of contestation" or "The National Democratic Revolution" really means? Here at last, in an irreverent nutshell, is your answer!
This is the indispensable handbook for both Comrades and Counter Revolutionaries. The essential ranters' rough guide pinpoints and defines some of the most overused and abused words, cliches and jargon that noisily bamboozle our daily life. It is a satirical dictionary for our times, encompassing politics, business, culture, sport, history ...and that relentless, buzzing swarm of cliches that assaults us every day. Keep this subversive manual close by, especially at your bedside. It could save your sanity.
