About this book

Holy Cows (ePub) | Politics: General & Reference

Gareth van Onselen


From initiation ceremonies in the Eastern Cape to Helen Zille’s Twitter account, South Africa is a land ripe with contradiction. It is a place where first world aspirations often clash with third world realities. Commentator Gareth van Onselen takes a fearless look at some of these faultlines. He also asks why we have seemingly become a nation that bends over backward to accommodate mediocrity, settling for that which is only good enough.
