Ambiguous Restructurings of Post-apartheid Cape Town: The Spatial Form of Socio-political Change
Christoph Haferburg, Jürgen Ossenbrügge
LIT Verlag Münster, 2003 - Apartheid - 188 pages
What will tomorrow's Cape Town look like? This volume reflects a variety of aspects of urban development and restructuring efforts in Cape Town in the last years. A focus lies on the question if the "apartheid city" is reproducing itself. This leads to an evaluation whether current policies really counter societal imbalances. The essays presented here illuminate possible pathways towards the urban futures unfolding in a South African city in transition.
