Evaluating the Human Environment. Essays in Applied Geography

Earlier owner's name signed on half-title and inside upper cover; faint trace of spotting to edges. Very good condition. "The editors of this volume have presented eleven essays which indicate the practical scope of the geographer's approach to the day-to-day operation of human society. The subjects range from the geographer's studies of air pollution and its control, through a diversity of interrelated physical and human geographical fields, to the role of geographers in politics and political decision-making... This volume aims to demonstrate to students of geography the range of applications open to them, and at the same time to indicate to non-geographers the important potential of geographical techniques applied to evaluation and planning.".

Values and Democracy in South Africa: Comparing Elite and Public Values

"This study is an attempt to give an overview of opinion leaders' attitudes regarding a host of issues in contemporary South Africa. It also compares the attitudes and values of opinion leaders with those of the public, and assesses the level of congruence between opinion leaders and the general public... [It] should be stressed that this is predominantly an opinion leader study, which implies that generalisations should not be made to the broader South African public. Generalisations are only applicable to opinion leaders in South Africa.".

Hierdie publikasie voldoen aan die behoefte om die jeug, ouers en onderwysers van die nodige kennis en leiding i.v.m. die verspreiding, die verskillende maniere van gebruik, en die redes waarom mense van dwelmmiddels afhanklik raak, te voorsien.".

MASHABELA, HARRY
Mekhukhu. Urban African Cities of the Future
(Johannesburg: South African Institute of Race Relations, 1990). . 210 x 150 mm; pictorial wraps; pp. viii + 54; black-and-white photographs. Very good condition. 'South Africa's cities contain many more families than they do houses. So as many as seven million people, most of them black, have built their own shelters there. What are these shack settlements like? Who runs them? Do people live in them by choice? Where do they get water from? How much business do they contain? This study tries to answer all these questions, drawing extensively on fieldwork in seven shack settlements on the Reef. Mashabela writes about the hopes and fears of shack dwellers, how they mobilise themselves against attempts to remove them, how they organise themselves politically. He talks about poverty and unemployment about attempts to cope with problems like illiteracy, about failure and success. He writes also about the causes and consequences of violence in the shack settlements.'.

MINNAAR, ANTHONY (EDITOR)
Communities in Isolation: Perspectives on Hostels in South Africa
(Pretoria: Human Sciences Research Council, 1993) 0796914966. . 283 x 200 mm; pictorial wrappers; pp. xi + 271; several graphs and tables. Wrappers slightly rubbed, with trace of curl to bottom fore-corner of upper cover. Very good condition. "The violence associated with the hostel/township conflict is the result of a complex set of factors. Competition between emerging political groups undoubtedly explains much of the present violence in South Africa. However, there are a number of other factors such as social, demographic, economic and ethnic issues; various structural realities; crime, and aspects of policing which impact on the violence generally and more specifically on the hostel/township conflict. Some of the key issues around hostels associated with high levels of violence include overcrowding, inadequate facilities, high levels of unemployment, and a high rate of political mobilisation which increases levels of political competition between hostel residents and the surrounding communities. Furthermore, the high level of violence is also associated with the prevailing political intolerance. More recently the issues surrounding the fencing of hostels and upgrading initiatives have also been a source of conflict. This research report, undertaken by HSRC researchers in the Centres for Conflict Analysis and Socio-political Monitoring as well as by researchers of a number of outside organisations, endeavours to shed light on these underlying factors.".

SHAW, MARK
Marching to a Different Tune: Political Change and Police Transformation in South Africa and Northern Ireland
(Johannesburg, The South African Institute of International Affairs, 2001). . 240 x 165 mm; laminated pictorial wraps; pp. (viii) + 109. Fine condition. "The process of police transformation in societies undergoing transition is an issue of some importance. This has certainly been the case in both South Africa and Northern Ireland where questions of policing change are critical to the success of the process of political compromise as well as the sustainability of post-transition democratic systems. Lessons from police change in South Africa and Northern Ireland also have wider implications. These societies have often been compared in the past and there have been important South African inputs into the Northern Ireland peace process. Contrasting the different approaches to police change may hold lessons for other countries facing similar challenges. This volume also provides an accessible record of the co-operation between the police agencies in both countries during the change period. A summary of recommendations made by an independent inquiry into police transformation in Northern Ireland has been included.".
