This book is edited by Professor Loren Landau and Tanya Pampalone.

The narratives in this book, collected by researchers, journalists and writers, reflect the many facets of South Africa’s post-apartheid decades. They are the stories of South Africans, some Gauteng-born, others from neighbouring provinces, striving to realise the promises of democracy. They are also the stories of newcomers from neighbouring countries and from as far afield as Pakistan and Rwanda, seeking a secure future in those very promises.
