This is a must-read for all South African citizens looking for solutions to the problems facing our democracy. Adam Habib offers an original analysis of political and economic transition in the post-apartheid era by exposing the institutional constraints and the balance of forces at play in South Africa's political arena. Grappling with dilemmas such as the crisis of service delivery and accountability, the shifts in economic policy, the role of civil society and the viability of a social pact, Habib explores factors that influence political and policy outcomes. These include the power and leverage of political parties, the business sector, foreign investors, trade unions, civil society organisations as well as global power and institutions. He believes that individuals and institutions can, with imagination, act against the grain of a given historical moment and transform society as a whole. South Africa's Suspended Revolution: Hopes and Prospects was published in 2013. Rewolusie Op Ys: Suid-Afrika se Vooruitsigte is an abridged and translated version of the original English edition, and serves as an ideal introduction for anyone interested in South Africa's future prospects.
