Congolese Social Networks : Living on the Margins in Muizenberg, Cape Town Hardback
by Joy Owen
Congolese Social Networks details the minutiae of transmigrant Congolese men and women's experiences in Muizenberg, Cape Town.
The focus on social networks-the creation and maintenance thereof across social boundaries of race, class, gender, and nationality-builds on the skeletal quantitative record on "African" transmigrants in South Africa.
The text delineates the importance of strategy and how chance encounters with dissimilar others can lead to the securement of a viable and sustainable livelihood.
