Join Nick Dall and Matthew Blackman for the launch of Spoilt Ballots: The Elections that Shaped South Africa in Cape Town (22 Jun)
 More about the book!

Penguin Random House and Exclusive Books invite you to the launch of Spoilt Ballots: The Elections that Shaped South Africa, from Shaka to Cyril, by Nick Dall and Matthew Blackman.

Entertaining and impeccably researched, Spoilt Ballots lifts the lid on 200 years of electoral dysfunction in our beloved and benighted nation.

If you paid even a moment’s attention during high school history lessons, you probably know that 1910 brought about the Union of South Africa, that the 1948 general election ushered in apartheid, and that the Rainbow Nation was born when Madiba triumphed in the country’s first democratic elections in 1994.

Spoilt Ballots dishes the dirt on these pivotal events in our history. But it also sheds light on a dozen lesser-known contests, starting with the assassination of King Shaka in 1828 and ending with the anointing of President Cyril at Nasrec in 2017.
