The Fate of the Eastern Cape

History, Politics and Social Policy

Edited by: Greg Ruiters

This unique collection combines historical accounts with current socio-political analyses to present an agenda of social-spacial justice for the people of the Eastern Cape, a province a South Africa. The book explores economics, the environment, development, and service delivery, and also includes a series of case studies. The contributors' areas of expertise range from political science, social policy, economics, geography, anthropology, biology, and education. The Fate of the Eastern Cape not only provides a portrait of the post-1994 region, but also makes an important contribution to debates about future policy prescriptions, in order to tackle the wider questions about the future of South Africa's provinces.
