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.

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.

Teaching the "Native"
Teaching the "Native"
Behind the architecture of an unequal educational system
Joseph Daniel Reilly
If you are sitting in a South African school or university right now, you need to put aside 1948 and "Bantu Education" as a primary target of enquiry – these were little more than steps along a road that was already paved – and study when, where and how your institution came into being in the first place. This book joins the growing body of work (much of it by South African scholars) displacing the many mind-numbingly dull texts loaded with assumptions and logics that, in the case of South Africa, reify a simplified colonial explanation of the past. Generations of students, educators and policymakers have suffered enough through tedious though inaccurate history books disguised as dispassionate, impartial views of "the facts."

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.

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

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.
