Overview

This anthology provides insightful political analysis of postapartheid South Africa. Written by leading South African intellectuals, these analyses cover topics such as unemployment, trade unionism, race relations, land reform, education, international relations, and the South Africanization of the African economy. Within each work the inherited apartheid legacy, the policies introduced to overcome those legacies, and the effectiveness of those policies are addressed.
