Every South African knows that we urgently need “new ways to fix old problems”. This astute collection of essays by 15 experts therefore provides action-oriented recommendations on a broad range of priorities. From Ann Bernstein to Thuli Madonsela, from Bonang Mohale to Temba Nolutshungu – they scrutinise the forces that shape society, in order to strengthen democracy and bring about productive change.
Offering a broad historical perspective, this compelling read brings clarity (and activates a new awareness) as to how the interplay between economic and political institutions create either poverty, or widely-shared wealth.
Written by two veteran journalists, this is a mature overview of South Africa's current political and cultural complexities, traced back to the historical factors that have shaped – and continue to shape – the country.
