About This Item

(Johannesburg: South African Institute of Race Relations, 1990). 210 x 150 mm; pictorial wraps; pp. viii + 54; black-and-white photographs. Very good condition. 'South Africa's cities contain many more families than they do houses. So as many as seven million people, most of them black, have built their own shelters there. What are these shack settlements like? Who runs them? Do people live in them by choice? Where do they get water from? How much business do they contain? This study tries to answer all these questions, drawing extensively on fieldwork in seven shack settlements on the Reef. Mashabela writes about the hopes and fears of shack dwellers, how they mobilise themselves against attempts to remove them, how they organise themselves politically. He talks about poverty and unemployment about attempts to cope with problems like illiteracy, about failure and success. He writes also about the causes and consequences of violence in the shack settlements.' .
