Book Description

28 May 1997
Social geographer John Western analyzes the urban spatial planning of the 1950 Group Areas Act that achieved, in the built environment of Cape Town, the racial separatism of apartheid. His new prologue for the paperback edition assesses the changes to be expected from the new government and the obstacles to significant change.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant History & Analysis of A Tragically Divided City. 21 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
South African Apartheid remains alive and well, as this study of brutal resettlement programs illustrates. Nelson Mandela's failure to protect the human and civil rights defenseless Cape Town minorities is nothing short of criminal. Author's focus is primarily on "Cape Coloureds", people of mixed race. Written from the unique perspective of a British social geographer, now on the faculty of a major American university.
