This title was first published in 2001. Examining state-driven programmes of land reform, this book provides an important examination of the transformation process in post-apartheid South Africa at both national and local levels. It captures the dynamics of socio-political change at national and local levels and provides an important analysis of integration in one of the world’s most divided societies.


’…this is a book that asks interesting questions, and is welcome as a geographical contribution rooted in the inherently spatial nature of apartheid and therefore of post-apartheid restructuring.’ Third World Planning Review '…a clear analysis of the hindrances and challenges faced by one of the world's most divided societies.' Environment and Urbanization
