"The authors of this volume grapple with the complexities of rapid urbanisation and the surprising persistence of migrant labour inside South Africa after apartheid. This book is a pioneering effort to advance understanding of enduring circular labour migrancy. It's originality, depth and clarity make it required reading for those in universities, government, business and civil society, who wish to address this socially entrenched, yet constantly changing, feature of South African society." Alan Mabin, Emeritus Professor, Architecture and Planning, University of the Witwatersrand
