The authors explore the relationship between patronage, poverty and inequality and its impact on the conduct of local politics, and whether public institutions can become legitimate arbiters between contending interest groups. This book is the culmination of a research project undertaken by the Mapungubwe Institute for Strategic Reflection (MISTRA) in Johannesburg.
