  • People's Warby Anthea Jeffery

    Jonathan Ball Publishers 2014; US$ 30.63

    Twenty years have passed since South Africans were being shot or hacked or burned to death in political conflict; and the memory of the trauma has faded. Some 20 500 people were nevertheless killed between 1984 and 1994. The conventional wisdom is that they died at the hands of a state-backed Third Force, but the more accurate explanation is that... more...

  • The Idea of the ANCby Anthony Butler

    Ohio University Press 2013; US$ 11.99

    The African National Congress (ANC) is Africa?s most famous liberation movement. It has recently celebrated its centenary, a milestone that has prompted partisans to detail a century of unparalleled achievement in the struggle against colonialism and racial discrimination. Critics paint a less flattering portrait of the historical ANC as a communist... more...

  • South Africa?s Suspended Revolutionby Adam Habib

    Ohio University Press 2013; US$ 21.99

    South Africa?s Suspended Revolution tells the story of South Africa?s democratic transition and the prospects for the country to develop a truly inclusive political system.

  • Democracy as Deathby Jason Hickel

    University of California Press 2015; US$ 34.95

    The revolution that brought the African National Congress (ANC) to power in South Africa was fractured by internal conflict.  Migrant workers from rural Zululand rejected many of the egalitarian values and policies fundamental to the ANC?s liberal democratic platform and organized themselves in an attempt to sabotage the movement. This anti-democracy... more...

  • Afrikas Macher - Afrikas Entwicklerby Ute Schaeffer

    Brandes & Apsel 2014; US$ 21.76

    Afrika hat nicht eine, sondern mehrere Gegenwarten. Es ist an manchen Orten auf der Überholspur, woanders auf dem Weg zurück in eine soziale und politische Steinzeit. Viele Staaten Afrikas machen über Jahre entschlossene Schritte auf eine Demokratisierung zu und werden dann plötzlich in Diktatur und Anarchie zurückgeworfen. Und: das Navigationssystem... more...

  • The Politics of Governanceby Lucy Koechlin; Till Förster

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 130.00

    How do government arrangements emerge? When and how does individual agency turn into collective agency? How do sensory experiences of violence, instability, etc affect the configuration of governance arrangements? When, why, and how are governance arrangements institutionalized? This book seeks to contribute to a non-normative conceptualization... more...

  • Citizenship Law in Africaby Bronwen Manby

    African Minds 2012; US$ 24.70

    Few African countries provide for an explicit right to a nationality. Laws and practices governing citizenship effectively leave hundreds of thousands of people in Africa without a country. These stateless Africans can neither vote nor stand for office; they cannot enrol their children in school, travel freely, or own property; they cannot work for... more...

  • Recovering Democracy in South Africaby Raymond Suttner

    Jacana Media 2015; US$ 10.99
