Abstract

In this thought proving, insightful and well-researched book, the authors argue that the transition to democracy has improved the state of the people in South Africa. This study that was carried out over a period of six years, involving local and international experts, provides convincing evidence that more people are satisfied, more people trust government and more people identify with the nation than before.
