Excerpt from With Botha's Army: With Introductory Letter by General Botha The story of the campaign of German South-West Africa is written, plain for all time, across the sands of that amazing country, and an empty bully-beef tin, half-buried in the flank of a tawny sand-dune, is eloquent of most of its detail. But this, of course, we did not know when, on the 11th of September, 1914, we packed our horses on the s.s. Monarch, and ourselves aboard the Gaika to await the dicethrow of Chance. It is true that we were more or less certain as to our destination, but it is equally true that our knowledge on this point was strictly unofficial, and therefore sinful. Not that we greatly cared, however. Our optimism was a thing colossal. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

The explosion of minimalism into the worlds of visual arts, music and literature in the mid-to-late twentieth century presents one of the most radical and decisive revolutions in aesthetic history. Detested by some, embraced by others, minimalism's influence was immediate, pervasive and lasting, significantly changing the way we hear music, see art and read literature. In The Theory of Minimalism, Marc Botha offers the first general theory of minimalism, equally applicable to literature, the visual arts and music. He argues that minimalism establishes an aesthetic paradigm for rethinking realism in genuinely radical terms. In dialogue with thinkers from both the analytic and continental traditions – including Kant, Danto, Agamben, Badiou and Meillassoux – Botha develops a constellation of concepts which together encapsulate the transhistorcial and transdisciplinary reach of minimalism. Illustrated by a range of historical, canonical and contemporary minimalist works of different media, from the caves of early Christian ascetics to Samuel Beckett's late prose, Botha offers a bold and provocative argument which will equip readers with the tools to engage critically with past, present and future minimalism, and to recognize how, in a culture caught between the poles of excess and austerity, minimalism still matters.
