Imperial Ghetto - Ways of Seeing in a South African City

The project consists of a series of five books, Social Identities South Sfrica (SISA), available from April 2001.The demise of apartheid and the first democratic elections of 1994 brought a growing ethos of democratic rule and fundamentally changing identities among all citizens of South Africa.The Social Identities in South Africa' book series is an investigation of this unique situation, and represents the first comprehensive attempt to describe the emerging nature of these new identities.Although identity-producing changes in South African society are clearly related to factors such as increased social mobility, migration, access to jobs, access to training and education, and to general reform in South Africa, the nature and influence of the identities being formed in response are as yet less defined.The book series is part of the larger Social Identities in South Africa (SISA) project which endeavours to answer the following underlying questions: What new social identities have emerged in post apartheid South Africa and how are these new social categories replacing or co-existing with old apartheid social categorisations? How is South African identity as a whole being changed by having to accommodate these new social identities?The South African National Research Foundation (NRF) has supported both the research underlying the book series and publication of the volumes by Kwela Books, Cape Town, South African History Online and Ashgate Publishing, Aldershot.
