Synopsis: “Adam Habib is the right person to have undertaken the task that has issued in this book, which he describes as ‘a culmination of at least two decades of debates, reflections and thoughts about resistance in South Africa, its political and socio-economic evolution, and the conundrums and dilemmas relating to the making of this society.’ (p. ix) He has managed ‘to bridge academic and public discourse’ (p. x) while speaking truth to power....Habib’s book offers a clear narrative, accessible academic analysis and a fair report on the state of the nation.”
African Studies Quarterly

 South Africa’s Suspended Revolution tells the story of South Africa’s democratic transition and the prospects for the country to develop a truly inclusive political system. Beginning with an account of the transition in the leadership of the African National Congress from Thabo Mbeki to Jacob Zuma, the book then broadens its lens to examine the relationship of South Africa’s political elite to its citizens. It also examines the evolution of economic and social policies through the democratic transition, as well as the development of a postapartheid business community and a foreign policy designed to re-engage South Africa with the world community.

Written by one of South Africa’s leading scholars and political commentators, the book combines historical and contemporary analysis with strategies for an alternative political agenda. Adam Habib connects the lessons of the South African experience with theories of democratic transition, social change, and conflict resolution. Political leaders, scholars, students, and activists will all find material here to deepen their understanding of the challenges and opportunities of contemporary South Africa.

About the Author: Adam Habib is vice-chancellor and principal of University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa. He worked at the Human Sciences Research Council as an executive director from 2004 to 2007, as a professor of the School of Development Studies at the University of Natal from 2001 to 2003, and as deputy vice-chancellor for research at the University of Johannesburg from 2008 to 2013.
