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.

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
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.

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.

State of the Nation: South Africa 1994-2014
A twenty-year review of freedom and democracy
Thenjiwe Meyiwa, Muxe Nkondo, Margaret Chitiga-Mabugu, Moses Sithole , Francis Nyamnjoh
'Deserves to become a regular port of call for everyone wishing to keep abreast of key developments in South Africa today'
SA Review


This seventh edition in the internationally acclaimed State of the Nation series from HSRC Press is a significant contribution to the debates around the impact of 20 years of freedom and democracy on South Africa. Resonating with a wealth of research in a variety of disciplines and cross-disciplinary fields, leading scholars analyse and reflect on an emerging balance sheet that urges all South Africans towards a fair, coherent and multi-pronged approach to development in which all stakeholders need to participate.

The two decades of freedom and democracy are viewed through the lenses of politics, economics, society, health, environment and the global context. Each of these sections offers illuminating and significant analyses of topics of national importance.

Across the world, scholars, academics, policymakers and general readers look to the annual editions of State of the Nation as influential frames of reference for South African current affairs and the pathways forward. State of the Nation presents:
  • Insightful reflections on two decades of freedom and democracy, emerging trends and future perspectives
  • A definitive bridge between longitudinal studies and compelling narratives
  • Critical views that will challenge understanding of past and current affairs
