Based on research conducted over eighteen years amongst the residents of The Park (now called The Village), a shack settlement on the outskirts of Cape Town, Fiona Ross offers insight into the complex ways of life within an impoverished community and the efforts such a community makes to secure a decent life in post-apartheid South Africa.

Fiona Ross is Associate Professor in the Department of Social Anthropology at the University of Cape Town.
