Azad Essa is a young South African going places. A journalist with a wicked sense of humour, his take on world politics is engaging and insightful. The Moslems Are Coming tracks a changing world, tackles race and religion head-on, gives fresh insight into the Israel-Palestine conflict, casts new light on old stereotypes, vents the frustrations and fears of the next generation - and ultimately offers us hope for the future. 'Azad Essa, a Bollywood-soaked, Indian-battered, black South African-tinged, accidental academic and incidental journalist ... leaves no holy cows untaunted - nay, he even imagines them as beefburgers. The taunting is fast and furious and is bound to irritate many men and a few women in power' - Ari Sitas, author of Voices That Reason 'Azad writes with great verve and wit, but behind all the humour and lightness of touch is a deeply affecting and persuasive critique of the world we inhabit' - Mirza Waheed, author of The Collaborator 'The book is not only seamlessly written, it is also chutzpadik, refreshing and - at its core - deeply humanistic' - Jewish Report 'The man is abrasive, engaged, uncowed' - Kevin Bloom, author of Ways of Staying 'Irreverence and wicked humour ricochet at high speed through this collection, like a game of squash played with a golf ball'- Sanjay Kak, Film-maker
