Short-Changed: South Africa Since Apartheid / Colin Bundy

Availability: Out of stock
Part of Ohio Press' Short Stories of Africa
£10.00

Foremost South African historian Colin Bundy asks how much have things really changed since the demise of apartheid, and how much remains the same? Avoiding the simplistic or one-sided assessments of life under certain presidents, Bundy identifies the limits and contradictions to any advance the ANC has made. He also demonstrates how the country's past permeates the present, complicating and constraining the politics of transition and giving rise to the corrosive effects of factionalism, greed and corruption. In essence he deciphers how genuine transformation has been short-changed.
