♥ Book Title : Political Science in South Africa
☯ Full Synopsis : "In 2013 and in 2014 respectively, the South African Association of Political Studies (SAAPS) and Politikon (the South African Journal of Political Studies) celebrate their 40th anniversary. Also, in April 2014 South Africa celebrates twenty years since the advent of the post-Apartheid democracy, and the birth of the ‘rainbow nation’. This book provides a timely account of the birth and evolution of South African politics over the past four decades, but also of the study of Political Science and International Relations in this country. Fourteen political scientists contribute chapters to this volume, situating the study of politics within its global context and recounting the development of politics as a field of study at South African universities. The fourteen contributions evaluate the state of the discipline(s) and suggest conclusions that are surprising and in many instances unsettling, not only with regards to what and how politics is taught, but also how its study has variously gained and lost pertinence for South Africans’ understanding of their own polity as well as its place in the world. The implications are uncomfortable, and pose interesting challenges for South African scholarship, pedagogy and national self-reflection. This book was published as a special issue of Politikon."Article| Peter Vale| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Constructing a Democratic Developmental State in South Africa
☯ Full Synopsis : "The social and economic successes of Asia have drawn global attention to the developmental state as a possible model for developing countries—and South Africa is interested. As this interdisciplinary team of distinguished scholars warns, however, constructing a developmental state is one thing; actually implementing the necessary institutional and policy reforms to bring it into reality is another. Providing an eloquent account of what the state's primary goals should be at this point, these contributors point to South Africa's advantages, including its existing constitutional democracy, the wealth of its mineral resources, and the commitment of its political leadership. Beyond that, they make the case that South Africa will have to become more socially inclusive, that economic and social policy will have to be intertwined, that development and democratic agendas must be mutually reinforcing, and that a competent bureaucracy needs to be built."Article| Omano Edigheji| Statement ..."
