Abstract "Essays on the evolution of the post-apartheid state: Legacies, reforms and prospects is a compilation of research papers which are meant to generate strategic reflection beyond issues to do with the day-to-day chores of governance. The views across the essays may not be entirely consistent ; and the issues they raise may be contentious. This merely affirms the truism that the state is a contested terrain. The aim is to deepen the search for an understanding of the theory of the state as it applies to a transforming society such as ours, and to trudge the dividing line between theory and practice so they can feed into each other in a progressive spiral towards the desired ' end-state'. This book forms part of MISTRA's core research projects that were initiated at its founding some three years ago. Arising from, and in addition to, these projects, other themes will be pursued, as part the tortuous climb towards the summit of useful and usable knowledge." -- MISTRA's website: http://www.mistra.org.za/Library/Publications/Pages/Essays-on-the-Evolution-of-the-Post-Apartheid-State-.aspx
