Sendes vanligvis innen 5-15 dager
After a decade of democracy the widening of the wealth-poverty divide, primarily along racial lines, threatens the stability and sustainability of our young democracy. In this title the author proposes that if even a million South Africans join together to work towards improving the lot of their fellow citizens there is every likelihood of a second miracle greater than South Africa's peaceful transition to democracy. We simply have to ensure that we don't leave it too late to build bridges between our many diverse communities! From apartheid to zaamheid includes: A personal perspective on how and why many South Africans continue to build walls, both physical and metaphorical, to protect and separate their communities; insights into how these walls simply can't protect the interests of these 'fortified' communities in the long-term; inspiring accounts of the efforts and successes of a number of ordinary people who are striving to build bridges; and guidelines for other South Africans to begin, in any small way, to do the same.
