Gibbs gently upends the myth of a world of corrupted Bantustan bureaucrats and poor peasants, persuading us that we cannot understand contemporary South Africa until we come to terms with the importance of its “hinterland”. This book is bound to make you think about South Africa and the forces that have shaped it in ways you haven’t considered before.

Gibbs will be in conversation with Professor Lungisile Ntsebeza of the UCT Department of Sociology.

Event type: Debate
Date of event: Tuesday, June 17, 2014
