From Publishers Weekly:

In words and pictures, this book records the embattled lives of black South Africans banished to sp is correct/pk KwaNdebele, a segregated "homeland" outside Pretoria. Because of the distance between KwaNdebele and the city where nearly all are employed, the workers must endure four- to eight-hour daily bus commutes on rutted roads. In Johannesburg-based Goldblatt's ( On the Mines ) 26 realistically grainy, drowsy black-and-white duotone photographs, men and women sit slumped in their seats, seeking a brief respite; wait fatigued at bus stops; and otherwise submit to drudgery. South African Brenda Goldblatt, a CBS news producer, assembles oral histories of laborers; South African van Niekerk, a Boston Globe reporter, offers a historical perspective on the workers' plight; and Duke University photography instructor Harris places the pictures in a political context. These combined efforts result in a direct, sober and unself-dramatizing document.
