The South African Index of Multiple Deprivation for Children
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.

South African Social Attitudes: The 2nd Report
South African Social Attitudes: The 2nd Report
Reflections on the Age of Hope
Benjamin Roberts, Mbithi wa Kivilu, Yul Derek Davids (eds)

Since the transition to democracy in 1994, South Africa has become a well documented nation. A multitude of national and sub-national studies have been conducted, yielding a wealth of information about the characteristics of South African society, and how these have evolved over time. However, less is known about how South Africans feel about their world and themselves. There remains much scope for deepening our understanding of the public’s values, chronicling how these have been changing, and determining the extent to which different segments of the population vary in their attitudes and beliefs.

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.

The socioeconomics of livestock keeping in two South African communities
The socioeconomics of livestock keeping in two South African communities
A black man's bank
Vasu Reddy, Safiyya Goga, Furzana Timol, Stanley Molefi
The South African government has prioritized a reduction of poverty and increased food security in rural parts of South Africa through agrarian transformation. As the bearers and beneficiaries of rural development initiatives, smallholder farmers, including those keeping livestock, loom large in this arena. Likewise, on international development agendas steered by bodies such as the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization), smallholders are prioritized as the engines of national economies.

Waves of Change
Waves of Change
Globalisation and seafaring labour markets
Shaun Ruggunan
Over 90 per cent of the goods we use – from our smartphones to the fuel in our cars – are transported by ships. The cargo shipping industry is the most globalised industry in the world, yet we know very little about the context in which these ships operate or the ways in which seafaring labour is organised. Drawing on evidence from South Africa and the Philippines, Waves of Change provides an account of globalisation, seafaring labour markets and the state that allows us to understand how processes of globalisation unfold in this industry. The author shows that globalisation does not always mean a 'race to the bottom' for workers: labour solidarity and interventionist states shape globalisation as much as ship owners do. Scholars, policy makers, students and those with a general interest in globalisation and labour will find Waves of Change a revelatory account of an industry about which little is generally known.

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.
