A third collection of essays that analyse key issues facing South Africa.

"The 'New South African Review' offers, for the third time, a valuable compass to navigate us through South(ern) African socio-economic and political realities. It is an important stocktaking exercise. With every year, the 'New South African Review' becomes an ever more important tool for analytical insights into, and assessment of, the challenges." Henning Melber, Director Emeritus of the Dag Hammerskjöld Foundation in Uppsala, Extraordinary Professor in the Department of Political Sciences, University of Pretoria, and Research Associate with the Centre for African Studies, University of the Free State.
