What's gone wrong? : South Africa on the brink of failed statehood by Alex Boraine( )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the book that Alex Boraine never wanted to write. As a native South African and a witness to the worst years of apartheid, he has known many of the leaders of the African National Congress in exile. He shared the jubilation of millions of South Africans when the ANC won the first democratic elections in 1994 and took up the reins of government under the presidency of Nelson Mandela. Now, two decades later, he is forced to wonder what exactly has gone wrong in South Africa. Intolerance and corruption are the hallmarks of the governing party, while the worsening state of education, health, safety and security and employment strengthen the claim that South Africa is a failing state. Boraine explores this urgent and critical issue from the vantage point of wide experience as a minister, parliamentarian, co-founder of the Institute for Democracy in South Africa (IDASA) and Vice Chairperson of South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Committee. He digs deep into the history of the ANC and concludes that both in exile and today, the ANC is slavishly committed to one party as the dominant ruling factor. All else - the Executive, Parliament, the Judiciary, civil society and the media - take second and third place. The ANC, Boraine claims, seeks to control every institution. What's Gone Wrong? pulls no punches, but it also goes beyond strong criticism and offers a number of constructive proposals, including the re-alignment of politics as a way of preventing South Africa becoming a failed state. As South Africa mourns the loss of Mandela and embarks on another national election, with the ANC likely to begin a third decade of rule, this incisive, detailed critique is required reading for all who are interested in the fate of this young nation

South Africa and the world economy in the 1990s by South Africa and the world economy in the 1990s( Book )

8 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the recent announcement of the lifting of sanctions, South Africa stands poised to emerge from years of economic isolation into a world undergoing dramatic transformation. What patterns of trade and investment in the world at large will shape the external environment facing South Africa in the 1990s? And what will make a developing country like South Africa internationally competitive in this decade? Furthermore, what role can international trade and investment play in spurring economic growth in South Africa, alleviating the country's poverty and promoting a more equitable distribution of wealth? These are some of the questions that came under the spotlight at an international conference organised in 1993 by The Aspen Institute and IDASA (The Institute for a Democratic Alternative for South Africa). At this conference, held in South Africa, a number of leading economists and policy advisers from the United States, Asia, Latin America and Africa met to stimulate discussion about a range of critical issues facing the South African economy in the years ahead. This book, like the conference on which it is based, explores South Africa's international economic policy options in the 1990s and provides essential reading for those wishing to understand emerging international economic trends and their implications for South and Southern Africa
