Overview

Why are South Africans so uncomfortable with deep disagreement? Why do is their such a high level of intolerance for people with opposing views? Eusebius McKaiser is on a mission to raise the level of debate in South Africa. He provokes readers from their comfort zones and lures them into the debates that shape opinions and society. With surprising candour and intensely personal examples, McKaiser examines our deepest-felt prejudices and ingrained assumptions. Don't expect to read this book and escape with your defences intact. Immensely readable and completely engaging, McKaiser tackles deeply South African questions of race, sexuality and culture, including: Can blacks be racist? Why is our society so violent? Is it morally okay to be prejudiced against skinny lovers? Why is the presidential penis so problematic? Is unconditional love ever a good thing? Is it necessary to search for a national identity?
