The first book by a single scholar about the important relations between the Republic of South Africa and the People's Republic of China. It traces (South) Africa-China contact from the dynastic era to the present day and proposes a model for a better understanding of relations by scholars and foreign policy practitioners alike.
An attempt to explain the gap between how economic orthodoxy is applied and the consideration given to homo economicus (the economic human being) in the process of development in the African context.
An exploration of the transnational nature of the Black identity using personal narratives about physical, virtual, and imagined communities of the African diaspora.
The first manual to conjugate 502 essential Zulu verbs into 17 tenses + the imperative mood. It introduces the YISHOSAKUZWA method of pronunciation and the BHALASAKUSHO method of writing zulucized words. All are Dr Mnyandu's innovations. To make conjugation more intuitive for the American isiZulu learner, the author conjugates only by personal pronouns in Book I, separate from conjugation by MONCs (modified noun classes) in complimentary Book II. This two-book approach is itself a new innovation.
The only book of its kind in existence. It introduces the Zulu Ordinal Prefix System (ZOPS) method of abbreviating Zulu numbering. Book II conjugates according to MONCs (modified noun classes) apart from personal pronouns (in Book I). This is a new way for ordering the conjugation of the Zulu language, to make isiZulu learning more intuitive to American students.
