State of the Nation 2003-2004 draws on a long tradition of critical, analytical scholarship to provide an outstanding contribution to our understanding of South Africa at this moment in history.

First in a series by leading South African intellectuals on the state of post-apartheid South Africa, this volume provides:

  • insightful analysis of post-apartheid polity, the state of the state, its political parties and wider civil society;
  • an in-depth look at the complex issues of employment, unemployment and the changing nature of trade unionism;
  • detailed examinations of aspects of the social environment such as race relations, land reforms and education;
  • informed assessments of South Africa's relations with Africa and the wider world including the increasing South Africanisation of the African economy.

Within each focal area, the authors reflect on the inherited apartheid legacy, review the policy and other initiatives introduced to overcome that legacy and then dissect the impact of these initiatives.

South African Social Attitudes
Changing Times, Diverse Voices

2139

A countrys 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 countrys circumstances, its continuities and changes, its democratic health, and how it feels to live there. It also helps to measure the countrys progress towards the achievement of its economic, social and political goals, based on the measurement of both objective and subjective realities.
