Adendorff (C.) & Collier (D.) AN UMBRELLA FOR THE RAINBOW NATION,
261pp., b/w & colour illus., map, paperback, Port Elizabeth, 2015. R250
"With an astounding grasp of current data on human development, this authoritative book offers a compelling vision for South Africa in the form of scenarios for everything from population growth and non-communicable diseases to climate change and basic education. Breathtaking in scope, 'An Umbrella for the Rainbow Nation' is nevertheless easily accessible to lay reader and expert alike, enabling all of us to breathe and not panic. The challenge implied in this inspiring book is both simple and elusive: to find the leadership in public life to take these evidence-led recommendations and chart a developmental path for all South Africans that enhances the prospects for cohesion, growth and prosperity for all." Jonathan Jansen, Vice-Chancellor, University of the Free State

"This book by Adendorff and Collier provides a practical, easy-to-read framework for thinking about pathways to a set of starkly divergent futures for South Africa 40 years from now. The authors contend that an optimal future, based on sustainable development in an inclusive, prosperous and democratic society is within our reach...The book should be a useful contribution to students of futuristic thinking and scenario planning in South Africa, as it would also offer a reference to policy thinkers in both public and private spheres...This book has turned out to be one of the most fascinating contributions to South African futurist thinking and scenario planning written in recent years." Derrick Swartz, Vice-Chancellor, Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University

"This is a great book in the classic tradition of future scenario planning, with the crucial added benefit of change navigation. I will definitely refer to it in my despatches." Clem Sunter, futurist, scenario planner and author of "21st Century Megatrends"

Aliber (M.), Maluleke (T.), Manenzhe (t.), Paradza (G.) & Cousins (B.) LAND REFORM AND LIVELIHOODS, trajectories of change in northern Limpopo Province, South Africa
326 pp., maps, b/w & colour illus., paperback, Cape Town, 2013. R280
An assessment of the performance of land reform in South Africa.

"The authors of 'Land Reform and Livelihoods' draw together an impressive set of sources, including data from their own in-depth fieldwork in 13 land reform projects, contemporary and historical population and agricultural census data, official documents and other studies, to explore the challenges facing farming in this region and the impact of post-1994 land reform policy and implementation on livelihoods in north-central Limpopo province. Given the many challenges facing existing land reform projects, the account is refreshingly energising about the possibilities and opportunities once certain preconceptions about rural aspirations and what constitutes successful farming are set aside and local conditions fully engaged. The analysis is thoughtful, nuanced, and happily free of polemic and stale, formulaic prescriptions. Sometimes inspiring, always interesting and tangibly respectful of the ordinary people at its centre, the study makes an important contribution to the available literature." Cherryl Walker, Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology, Stellenbosch University
Ally (S.) FROM SERVANTS TO WORKERS, South African domestic workers and the democratic state
228 pp., paperback, First S.A.Edition, Pietermaritzburg, 2010. R175
"'From Servants to Workers' explores the paradox of independence: as private domestic workers became recognized in the labor law in the postapartheid state, as their work became 'modernized' to be like other forms of employment, their unions withered. To account for demobilization of a militant group of women, Shireen Ally turns to ethnography and critical feminist theory, unpacking the subjective experience of intimate labor and the discursive construction of the domestic as a victim in need of state protection. Ally's is the finest analysis of the politics of social reproduction, bringing the state back into the study of domestic labor." Eileen Boris, Hull Professor and Chair, Department of Feminist Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara.
This book was first published by Cornell University Press in 2009.

Shireen Ally teaches in the Department of Sociology at the University of the Witwatersrand.

Barchiesi (F.) PRECARIOUS LIBERATION, workers, the state and contested social citizenship in postapartheid South Africa
331 pp., maps, paperback, Pietermaritzburg & Albany, 2011. R285
"Franco Barchiese provides a detailed, critical account of how the dicourse and ideology of the postpartheid government cast waged work as a primary source of virtue for social subjects and key to the rights of citizenship, even at a time when employment for the majority of workers is becoming ever more precarious. He adds to this a wonderfully rich ethnographic investigation of workers' views, desires, and fears regarding work, which are complex and at times surprising. Although firmly grounded in South Africa, Barchiesi's analysis is essential for anyone trying to understand and contest the intimate relation between work and governmentality." Michael Hardt, co-author of "Empire", "Multitude: war and democracy in the age of Empire" and "Commonwealth"

"In his 'tour de force', Franco Barchiesi shows how the reduction of citizenship to wage labour, inherited from the struggles against apartheid, has left South Africa's working class defenseless against the neoliberal offensive. Desperation takes over and violence spreads. Capturing disillusionment among subject populations, 'Precarious Liberation' is sure to make waves in the field of South African studies and beyond." Michael Burawoy, author of "The Extended Case Method" and "One Theoretical Tradition"

Franco Barchiesi is Assistant Professor in the Department of African-American and African Studies at Ohio University. He is the co-author of "Rethinking the Labour Movement in the 'New South Africa'".

Bekker (S.) & Fourchard (L.) eds. GOVERNING CITIES IN AFRICA, politics and policies
205 pp., maps, paperback, Cape Town, 2013. R200
"'Governing Cities in Africa: politics and policies' brings a unique set of comparative and collaboratively-generated insights to bear on some key themes of urbanism in sub-Saharan Africa. The book brings to the fore themes that are often neglected in urban studies generally - such as the role of political parties - and interrogates and proposes alternatives to some terms - such as informality - which are perhaps overused in exploring Africa. It has a very dynamic approach to building genuinely new analyses, working across a few to several cities at once, exploring both astonishing similarities and surprising differences, and bringing clarity of thinking to some of the top scholars working on these issues in the region and beyond. This is a rare kind of book, based on deep empirical knowledge and complex theoretical reflection, drawing insight from different language communities and from a very wide array of different cities - it is genuinely comparative, and a model for how to build conceptual insights about urban processes" Jennifer Robinson, Professor of Geography, University College, London

"'Capital Cities in Africa' constitutes an important contribution to the burgeoning literature on African cities and urbanisation. Its inclusion of Francophone capitals such as Conakry, Lomé and Brazzaville, and its emphasis on the heterogeneous histories through which power is generated and configured across colonial and post-colonial temporalities, and how this process itself engenders specific vulnerabilties and constraints, are the book's key strengths."

Burawoy (M.) & von Holdt (K.) CONVERSATIONS WITH BOURDIEU, the Johannesburg moment
236 pp., paperback, Johannesburg, 2012. R240
This book grew out of a series of lectures on the French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu that Michael Burawoy gave at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg in 2010. It takes the form of a series of "conversations" between Bordieu and (mostly) Marxist intellectuals and theorists, including Marx, Gramsci, Fanon, Freire, Beauvoir, Mills and Burawoy. Karl von Holt's essays reflect on the significance and relevance of these "conversations" for South Africa and the global South.

"Combines two glorious conversations: one between the incisive but under-criticised Bourdieu and a set of other social theorists, mediated by Michael Burawoy; the second between the global North and South, through Burawoy and Karl von Holdt. Poses a resounding challenge to parochialism and an invitation to further engagement. A triumph!" Jeremy Seekings, University of Cape Town

"Burawoy takes sociological imagination to a new level, shedding light on symbolic domination and social change. Von Holdt's reflections on the Johannesburg moment remind us of what's at stake. Together they give us grounds to imagine that a better world is, indeed, possible. Marxism is invigorated, sociology enriched." Peter Alexander, University of Johannesburg

"Tests Bourdieu against theory and practice - and transcends him. This is innovation in the crucible of southern experience, and will open many critical conversations and new controversies." Sarah Mosoetsa, University of the Witwatersrand

Michael Burawoy teaches sociology at the University of California, Berkeley. His Bourdieu Conversations were presented as lectures while a Mellon Visiting Professor at the University of Witwatersrand, where he is Research Associate at the Society Work and Development Institute (SWOP).

"Bram Bűscher offers an original approach to conceptualizing and examining neoliberal modes of government in action. He uses a richly grounded empirical analysis to shed light on a key puzzle with important political stakes: How are implausible win-win scenarios sustained despite their manifold contradictions, and what kinds of critical work are needed to puncture them? An excellent read." Tania Murray Li, author of "The Will to Improve: governmentality, development, and the practice of politics"

Very good stuff." Professor Tony Hawkins, Correspondent, Financial Times

358pp, maps, paperback, Cape Town, 2015. R290
An assessment of what the authors consider to be the stagnation of South Africa's agrarian reform.

"What does it mean to reverse decades of racial injustice in access to land and productive resources, and to deal with a legacy of concentration and inequality?

The answers provided in this book will be of interest not only to all those interested in the South African experiment, but also to those who, in all regions, are questioning the mainstream agrifood regime and asking how it can be transformed."

347pp., paperback, First SA Edition, Johannesburg, 2017. R380
First published in the USA in 2016.

"'The Truth about Crime' is replete with original insights. Reflecting on the disproportionate relationship between fear and actual danger in a number of major countries, Jean and John Comaroff explain why criminality, although far from matching many other potential sources of public peril, elicits much more civic outrage. We learn how changes in the meaning of criminality and the nature of crime-and-policing are associated with the recent shift in the relationship between capital, governance, and the state. We also learn how these developments in both the United States and the Republic of South Africa have resulted in steps taken to discipline or control certain groups defined or viewed as threatening. This is a compelling book, a must-read for scholars and laypersons alike." William Julius Wilson, author of "The Truly Disadvantaged"

"The Comaroffs’ constant articulation of sparkling ethnographic vignettes, rich statistical data, and highly imaginative insights makes for a truly effervescent argumentation, creative and, at the same time, thoroughly documented. With this combination they offer a powerful book that newly addresses a theme that is becoming central all over the world: our increasing obsession with (in)security." Peter Geschiere, author of "Witchcraft, Intimacy, and Trust"

Jean Comaroff is the Alfred North Whitehead Professor of African and African American Studies and of Anthropology and an Oppenheimer Fellow in African Studies at Harvard University.

287pp., paperback, Ontario, Cape Town & Nairobi, 2015. R275

"The 'Malayisha' Industry and the Transnational Movement of Remittances to Zimbabwe" by Vusilizwe Thebe.

"While migrants subjected to violent attacks generally appear as statistics or pathetic victims, the studies in this book show how many navigate a hostile terrain with considerable ingenuity, and are both victims and active agents in their own lives. The work is both empirically rich and analytically rigorous, making it an important addition to existing literature. " Raymond Suttner, author of "Recovering Democracy in South Africa

"'Mean Streets' is a refreshingly rich empirical documentation of the economic prospects and possibilities for South Africa of the creativity and entrepreneurship of international migrants. It is mostly a study of missed opportunities for the South African state and government, who prefer to confront immigrants with legal obstacles and regulatory mechanisms than offer them the police, official and social protection they crave to excel at business. Revised immigration policies with a human rights focus would harness the energies of immigrants as a resource with benefits for both South Africa and its immigrants' countries of origin." Professor Francis Nyamnjoh, author of "Insiders and Outsiders, citizenship and xenophobia in contemporary southern Africa"

du Plessis (H.) ed. THE RISE AND DECLINE AND RISE OF CHINA, searching for an organising philosophy
411pp., map, paperback, Johannesburg, 2015. R375
A collection of essays that investigate the rise of China and compare Chinese values and practices with those of sub-Saharan Africa.

"This is an immensely bold and timely effort to demonstrate an African 'writing back' to China, that both proposes an equal relationship between the two continents, and shows how seriously and knowledgeably Africa appreciates China, its history and thought. The question that now arises is whether China can take Africa seriously." Stephen Chan, OBE, School of Oriental & African Studies, University of London

"'The Rise and Decline and Rise of China: Searching for an Organising Philosophy' represents a new and promising approach to Africa/ China relations. What is most impressive is that it is an encounter between African and Chinese thought, but this encounter is not just a set of stale comparisons of philosophical beliefs. This study places the concepts and attitudes in both China and Africa in their socio-political contexts, in an attempt to provide a sophisticated, sensitive, and usable history. This attempt yields dividends, especially for the primary audiences of Africans, as it gives a way of learning from the vast history of Chinese experience without reducing African experience to insignificance or irrelevance (as has happened so often in dialogues between Africa and the West). This book will be of interest to anyone from within Africa interested in engaging with China as a complex and nuanced place, a place of challenges, creativity, and opportunity." Professor Bruce Janz, University of Central Florida

A collection of essays that examine the many dimensions of the land crisis in South Africa, argue for a fundamental change in approach, and demonstrate that social movements have a critical role to play.

"The greatest achievement of this important volume is to disentangle the three key strands - urban land, communal land and commercial farmland - which most analysts jumble together under the single rubric of 'the land question'.

"Marie Huchzermeyer has tackled an issue of enormous social and political significance. With about half the world's population now living in cities and with rural-to-urban migration continuing unabated, the question of worldwide slums and slum eradication is central to understanding city-building processes and urbanization in the future."

282pp., illus., maps, paperback, Johannesburg, 2014. R350

First Published in the USA in 2013.

An analysis of the production and use of African economic development statistics which demonstrates how the statistical capacities of sub-Saharan African economies have fallen into disarray.

"I found 'Poor Numbers' illuminating and disturbing at the same time - I think that is exactly what Morten Jerven intended. It is well written, even elegant in some places. Jerven's recommendation that more funding be put into statistical services to do baseline surveys and field-based data collection makes a lot of sense." Carol Lancaster, Dean of the School of Foreign Service and Professor of Politics, Georgetown University, author of "Aid to Africa: so little done, so much to do"

"Jerven demonstrates that basic national accounts data are too poor to assess very basic characteristics of African economic performance since independence. This short elegant book is fascinating and strikes me as a must-read for any social scientist interested in African political economy and policy." Nicolas van de Walle, Cornell University, author of "African Economies and the Politics of Permanent Crisis, 1979-1999"

He diagnoses every aspect of the contemporary South African condition with a care and commitment to research and balance that makes other scholars feel ashamed.

But in giving the history of South African competition law some flesh and colour, he also imparts advice and opinions, which, whilst sometimes controversial, challenge the way we should think of economic regulation and the institutions that regulate."

"Anne-Maria Makhulu sketches a moving picture of the often desperate struggles of squatters against the apartheid state in their efforts to make possible some sort of combination of work and family life. She also highlights important shifts and continuities under post-apartheid and the turn to neo-liberal policies. 'Making Freedom' is a major contribution that will impact the historiography of South Africa, urban studies, political economy, and anthropology of the state, market, and violence." Peter Geschiere, author of "Witchcraft, Intimacy, and Trust: Africa in comparison"

"We tend to think of South Africa in terms of its heroic struggles. Anne-Marie Makhulu shows us just how much we can learn by appreciating its quieter and less dramatic subaltern moments. In doing so, she places the expansion of shack settlements in post-apartheid Cape Town within the larger transformation of a global context."

I know of very few authors who can discuss such complex issues while telling a story and engaging the reader." John Sender, Emeritus Professor of Economics, School of African and Oriental Studies, University of London, and Fellow of Wolfson College, Uhniversity of Cambridge

"'South Africa Pushed to the Limit' will become a classic. I doubt whether anyone can match Marais' grasp of where South Africa is at today." Bill Freund, Professor of Economic History, University of KwaZulu-Natal

"Combining powerful analysis with a wealth of documentation, 'South Africa Pushed to the Limit' provides by far the best overview of political, economic and social change in post-apartheid South Africa. Essential reading for anyone trying to understand one of the great social experiments of our time."

"Infiltration and Instigation: how white suburban activists act out left politics on black bodies" by Koketso Moeti
"NGOs" brining false hope and empty promises", Gladys Mpepho, in conversation with Thembini Onceya.

"Non-governmental organisations are often seen as important vehicles of the quest for fairer, more just, societies - they are sometimes said to play a role once expected of political parties and governments. But the claim that NGOs are in the vanguard of the fight for social justice is rarely submitted to critical scrutiny. This book helps to fill that gap. It brings together insights from scholars and activists that deepen our understanding of the ways in which NGOs work and the limits of their social roles. It offers a welcome corrective to those who exaggerate NGO's abilities to fight for change and provides challenging ideas on more effective ways of pursuing social justice. This is an essential book for anyone who wants to understand more about a significant social trend, and for those who are looking for new ideas on how to work for a fairer society."

Sally Matthews teaches in the Department of Political and International Studies at Rhodes University.

In resisting neoliberalism we need to know that there are viable alternatives to the privatisation and commercialisation of essential services. This book does not romanticise the state, or community, and illustrates that 'the public' comes in many forms and guides; both good and bad. The public is a terrain in which people must struggle if we are to realise our commitments to social, cultural and economic rights."

178 pp., paperback, Johannesburg, 2011. R320
Between 1999 and 2004 Sarah Mosoetsa collected stories from poor men and women in two townships in KwaZulu-Natal in order to document how people respond to poverty and unemployment and discuss their experiences in relation to the restructuring of South Africa's welfare and social policies, and the extension of social grants.

"'Eating from One Pot' tells a tale of fragmentation and resilience, impoverishment and survival, despair and hope. In many ways therefore this book tells the story of post-apartheid South Africa where inequality and dire poverty have blighted the celebratory mood that followed the 1994 democratic breakthrough and dashed the hope for the egalitarian future that so many people fought for. This book is a superb example of the importance of rigorous social science research to understand and unravel the dilemmas of our rapidly changing times."

Murray (M.J.) CITY OF EXTREMES, the spatial politics of Johannesburg
470 pp., paperback, Johannesburg, 2011. R320
Martin Murray's critique of urban development in greater Johannesburg since 1994.

"In this meticulously researched account of Johannesburg's sociospatial history, Martin J.Murray gets beneath the surface of the city's chaotic present to discover the inertia of long-term deployments. He finds that ingrained habits of urban planning and real estate entrepreneurship have always been mobilized in the city as twin mechanisms of change and renewal across moments of territorial mutation. This exposes postapartheid transformation as a rearticulation of old orders and habits and makes an important contribution to revising the idea of a decisive historical rupture at the end of apartheid." Lindsay Bremner, Professor of Architecture, Tyler School of Art, Temple University


Martin J.Murray is Professor of Urban Planning at the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning, and Adjunct Professor at the Centre for Afroamerican and African Studies at the University of Michigan.

The anatomy of Britain in the 21st century" by Anthony Sampson and the 'big question' of this State of the Nation 2016: 'Who is in Charge?'

Symphony Way Pavement Dwellers NO LAND! NO HOUSE! NO VOTE!, voices from Symphony Way
, Cape Town, 2011. R200
In 2007 hundreds of families living in backyard shacks in the township of Delft in Cape Town, received letters inviting them to move into new houses in the N2 Gateway Housing Project, only to be told a few months later that these letters had been sent illegally and they were to be evicted. Hundreds of these residents organised themselves into the Symphony Way Anti-Eviction Campaign, built shacks for their families and vowed to stay on the road until the government gave them permanent housing. This publication is a collection of letters written by the people of the Symphony Way Anti-Eviction Campaign.

"The Symphony Way occupation was a real attempt at an insurgent and tenacious solidarity against an increasingly exclusionary and brutal society. It was an experiment at the outer limits of the innovative and courageous grassroots militancies that have emerged in South Africa in recent years. This book is also an experiment at the outer limits of radical publishing. All the tenacity, beauty, pain, desperation and contradictions that breathe life into any popular struggle haunt the pages of this searing book." Richard Pithouse, Department of Politics and International Struggles, Rhodes University

"These powerful and poignant testimonies that have emerged from the blockade of Symphony Way are voices ensepulchered by the South African state yet they refuse to be silenced...This is a story of horror conjugated with hope, compellingly told with a brutal directness and eloquence." Professor Peter McLaren, University of California, Los Angeles

"A magnificent and moving account of a long and hard fought struggle" Michael Watts, Professor of Development Studies, University of California, Berkeley
Tabane (O.) LET'S TALK FRANKLY, letters to influential South Africans about the state of our nation
249pp., illus., paperback, Johannesburg, 2015. R250

"Through these letters, corruption, internal democracy, racism and other important issues facing our nation are explored in a politically incorrect manner. This book is not a history or reference book but only my ‘arrogant opinion’ (to steal from Khaya Dlanga).

Sampie Terreblanche argues that socio-economic transformation has yet to take place in South Africa.

Terreblanche's book is a huge and valuable contribution to possibly the most important (and also controversial) debate of our time."

228 pp., paperback, Cape Town, 2010. R289
Describes the work on mitigation actions and proposals for four strategic options that South Africa can pursue in order to make a just transition to a low-carbon economy and society.


"The participatory and inclusive approach adopted in the development of the Long Term Mitigation Scenarios involving key stakeholders from business, labour, civil society and government has been critical in building a growing consensus that South Africa would have to peak, stabilise and decline its emissions by 2050. As one of the top twenty emitters in the world this is indeed a necessary consensus. The fact that the LTMS has been endorsed by the South African government means that we will see a transition to a low carbon sustainable economy being achieved in this country."
