Limits to Liberation after Apartheid : Citizenship, Governance & Culture, Paperback Book

Limits to Liberation after Apartheid : Citizenship, Governance & Culture Paperback

Edited by Steven L. Robins


Post-apartheid South Africa has been characterized by race tensions, social inequalities, and unemployment that are contributing to widespread crises.

In addressing the transition to democracy, Limits to Liberation examines issues of culture and identity, drawing attention to the creative agency of citizens of the new South Africa.

The writers question the classical western model of citizenship and procedural democracy in the face of the inability of most African states to provide basic needs.

Their bold, interdisciplinary inquiry contributes to South African and international scholarship on urban planning, governance, and citizenship.
