Advertising in the News
Advertising in the News
Paid-for content and the South African print media
Adrian Hadland, Lesley Cowling, Bate Felix Tabi Tabe
The rise of commercialism poses many challenges to the integrity of the South African media in the post-1994 era. To maintain profitability, many publications have developed a range of strategies to attract advertising, in particular, developing the content that advertisers most desire - content that creates what Herman and Chomsky called a ‘buying mood’ for their products. These include niched supplements, special sections and advertorial pages (surveys) as well as a new trend in paid-for content in the South African print media, identified in this study: the development of a ‘third arm’.

Attitudes to work and social security in South Africa
Attitudes to work and social security in South Africa
Michael Noble, Phakama Ntshongwana, Rebecca Surender

This paper presents findings from a module in the HSRC's 2006 South African Social Attitudes Survey that was designed by the Centre for the Analysis of South African Social Policy at the University of Oxford. Respondents were asked for their views on issues relating to the importance of work and the relationship between social grants and employment. The findings demonstrate a strong attachment to the labour market among the unemployed, support for more financial assistance for poor people including those who are unable to find work, and no evidence that social grants in South Africa foster a 'dependency culture'.

Ambitions Revised
Ambitions Revised
Grade 12 learner destinations one year on
Michael Cosser , Sekinah Sehlola

This monograph is the sequel to Studying Ambitions: Pathways from grade 12 and the factors that shape them, which investigated the aspirations for future study and/or work of 20 659 grade 12 learners across South Africa in 2005. Ambitions Revised: Grade 12 learner destinations one year on tracks the same cohort of learners into their destinations one year later. Of particular interest to the research team was the sub-set of those who enrolled in teacher education programmes. The extremely low levels of interest in teaching first observed in a similar 2002 HSRC study are confirmed here – a finding which has implications for sustainable teacher supply and for the health of an education system upon which the future of the country depends.

African Languages in a Digital Age
African Languages in a Digital Age
Challenges and opportunities for indigenous language computing
Don Osborn

With increasing numbers of computers and diffusion of the internet around the world, localisation of the technology and the content it carries into the many languages people speak is becoming an ever more important area for discussion and action. Localisation, simply put, includes translation and cultural adaptation of user interfaces and software applications, as well as the creation and translation of internet content in diverse languages. It is essential in making information and communication technology more accessible to the populations of the poorer countries, increasing its relevance to their lives, needs, and aspirations, and ultimately in bridging the ‘digital divide’. Localisation is a new and growing field of inquiry. This book identifies issues, concerns, priorities, and lines of research and is intended as a baseline study in defining localisation in Africa and how it is important for development and education in the long term. Techies, geeks, P2P experts, etc. as well as researchers and development organizations, this book is for you.

PodcastOn May 25, Africa Day, the HSRC Press launched the first book in its “Africa in Focus” series, entitled, Governance in the 21st Century. The book launch opened with a captivating demonstration of indigenous African instruments by South African musician Pops Mohammed. Here Pops introduces the mouth bow of the San people and the “Honey Song”. Legend has it that the song, played on the mouthbow, effectively lulls the bees into a relaxed state so that the San can reach in and harvest honey from the hive.

Alternatives to Privatization
Alternatives to Privatization
Public Options for Essential Services in the Global South
David A McDonald, Greg Ruiters

Critics of privatisation are often told they present no alternatives. This book takes up that challenge, proposing conceptual models for what constitutes an ‘alternative to privatisation’ and analyses what makes them successful (or not), backed up by empirical data on creative public service initiatives in over 40 countries in the Global South. This groundbreaking study provides a robust platform for comparisons across regions and sectors, with a focus on health, water and electricity. Alternatives to Privatisation is a compelling study and has been written by leading academics, practitioners and activists in the field.

Voices of Liberation
Gerald Pillay

The struggle to free South Africa from its apartheid shackles was long and complex. One of the many ways in which the apartheid regime maintained its stranglehold in South Africa was through controlling the freedom of speech and the flow of information, in an effort to silence the voices of those who opposed it. United by the ideals of freedom and equality, but also nuanced by a wide variety of persuasions, the 'voices of liberation' were many: African nationalists, communists, trade-unionists, pan-Africanists, English liberals, human rights activists, Christians, Hindus, Muslims and Jews, to name but a few.

Academic interaction with social partners
Academic interaction with social partners
Investigating the contribution of universities to economic and social development
Glenda Kruss, Genevieve Haupt, Mariette Visser, Mogau Aphane

A lively debate on the relationship between the university and society in a developing country like South Africa is emerging. Academic Interaction looks at the main results of a research study on university interaction with external social partners. It centres on definitional boundaries around whether engagement requires new forms of knowledge that differ from traditional academic modes and around who is defined as 'the community' – at local, regional, national or international levels. There is general agreement that the field is conceptually under-specified and theoretically rather thin.
