State of the Nation: South Africa 2005-2006
State of the Nation: South Africa 2005-2006
Sakhela Buhlungu, John Daniel, Roger Southall, Jessica Lutchman (eds.)
State of the Nation: South Africa 2005-2006 is the third in the HSRC’s exciting annual volume of essays on aspects of contemporary politics, economics, society and international relations in South Africa. This series has, in a relatively short period, become established as part of the annual South African scholarly calendar. Coverage in the media, international as well as South African, has been extensive; controversies have been stirred; both previous volumes have been prescribed as university texts locally and abroad; they have found their way into South African embassies around the world and foreign embassies in South Africa; and most importantly, many ordinary South Africans have purchased the books simply to find out more about the complex and fascinating country we live in.

South African Social Attitudes
South African Social Attitudes
Changing Times, Diverse Voices
Udesh Pillay, Benjamin Roberts, Stephen Rule (eds)
A country’s attitudinal profile is as much a part of its social reality as are its demographic make-up, its culture and its distinctive social patterns. It helps to provide a nuanced picture of a country’s circumstances, its continuities and changes, its democratic health, and how it feels to live there. It also helps to measure the country’s progress towards the achievement of its economic, social and political goals, based on the measurement of both ‘objective’ and ‘subjective’ realities.

The South African Index of Multiple Deprivation for Children
Census 2001
Helen Barnes, Gemma Wright, Michael Noble, Andrew Dawes

The detrimental impact of poverty on child development, educational outcomes, job prospects, health and behaviour is well known, and governments worldwide have committed themselves to eradicating child poverty as well as the intergenerational transmission of poverty. Yet more than 60% of South African children live in households with annual incomes below $1 360 (2006 value) and mortality and maltreatment rates remain high.

Racial Redress & Citizenship in South Africa
Racial Redress & Citizenship in South Africa
Kristina Bentley, Adam Habib (eds)

South Africa's democratic experiment is confronted with a central political dilemma: how to advance redress and address historical injustices while building a single national identity. This issue lies at the heart of many heated debates over issues such as economic policy, affirmative action, and skills shortages. Government has opted for racially defined redress while many of its critics recommend class as a more appropriate organising principle.

Skills Shortages in South Africa
Skills Shortages in South Africa
Case Studies of Key Professions
Johan Erasmus & Mignonne Breier (eds)

South Africa’s skills shortages are widely regarded as a key factor preventing the achievement of targeted growth rates. There is some dispute as to the nature and extent of these shortages, given that the country also has a large pool of unemployed graduates. The case studies presented in this monograph explore the question of shortage in nine key professions and trades and find evidence of skills scarcity in most fields.
