South Africa Pushed to the Limit: the Political Economy of Change by Hein Marais
Call Number: HC905 .M358 2011
Since 1994, the democratic government in South Africa has worked hard at improving the lives of the black majority, yet close to half the population lives in poverty, jobs are scarce, and the country is more unequal than ever. For millions, the colour of people's skin still decides their destiny. In his wide-ranging, incisive and provocative analysis, Hein Marais shows that although the legacies of apartheid and colonialism weigh heavy, many of the strategic choices made since the early 1990s have compounded those handicaps. South Africa Pushed to the Limit presents a riveting benchmark analysis of the incomplete journey beyond apartheid.
