9780195705805: No Place To Rest: Forced Removals and the Law in South Africa (Contemporary South African Debates)

The South African government's policy and practice of forcing communities to move from one area to another--in some cases, hundreds of kilometers apart--has resulted in untold misery for thousands of people over the years. This collection of essays by a distinguished group of contributors examines the government's past and present policies and practice of forced removal. Contributors include Colin Bundy, Aninka Claasens, Geoff Budlender, Michael Robertson, Alan Dodson, Catherine O'Regan, and Dave Unterhalter.

Review:

'Perhaps the most relevant for many practitioners will be the clear and well-researched chapter on the Prevention of Illegal Squatting Act ... an important contribution to the field.'
A.B. Burnett, De Rebus (South Africa)

'an invaluable guide to a notorious chapter in South Africa's political history'
Natal Mercury

`a straightforward book, which provides more evidence on the terrible injustice of forced removals in South Africa, adding to the quite extensive literature on this topic ... The innovative aspect of this book is its focus on the ways in which specific communities have tried (sometimes
successfully) to resist removal'
TWPR

`Both sensitivity and rigour characterise the way in which the contributors deal with the human, political and legal dimensions of forced removals. The book is accessible and the collection coherent ... it provides a good framework upon which to monitor and promote change ... The authors are
sensitive and self-reflective about the lawyer-client relationship.'
Journal of South African Studies
