This collection examines the nature, scope and prospects for political opposition under African National Congress political dominance.


' [A] fine book … the list of authors constitutes a virtual roll-call of South Africas leading political scientists.' - Democratization

'what is evidence from the various contributions is that there is little unanimity among the authors on how the opposition is best conceived or operationalised. The value of such divergent views lies in the fact that it not only stimulates debate, but also raises different issues…the merit of this collection lies in the fact that it brings together and reflects on many questions regarding the role of the opposition in South Africa.' - Yolanda Sadie, H-Net Reviews in Humanities and Social Sciences
