Abstract

State of the Nation: South Africa 2008 is the fifth volume in the annual series published by the HSRC Press. This volume will feature a range of pertinent and captivating contemporary viewpoints on South African politics, society, economy and international relations. As with earlier editions, commentary is drawn from the ranks of academics, political analysts, civil society and the research community. The diverse contributions form a comprehensive collection that, as always, reflects a finger kept firmly on the South African pulse. Issues featured in this edition include: Black consciousness in contemporary South African politics; Modernising the African National Congress; The developmental state in South Africa; Globalisation and transformation of the South African merchant navy; Landlords, tenants and social power in the backyards of a South African city; The state of military relations between South Africa and Zimbabwe and South Africa in the UN Security Council.
