State of the Nation: South Africa 1994-2014
A twenty-year review of freedom and democracy

2322

'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
