Inhaltsangabe: On paper, post-apartheid South Africa is a smoothly functioning liberal democracy, with regular elections, multiple political parties, and a range of progressive social rights. And in a certain sense, that’s not untrue. Nonetheless, a darker reality lurks in the background: an all-too-pervasive politics of the extraordinary, where the political discourse relies on threats and violence, and conflicts are presented in starkly racial terms.
In this book, Thiven Reddy exposes that other South Africa, showing how conventional approaches to understanding democratization in the nation have failed to capture the complexities of the post-apartheid transition. She draws clear lines between the troubling legacies of imperialism and the problems in today’s South Africa, showing how lingering modes of imperialist domination continue to shape both capitalism and individual identity. A powerful, revealing work, Reddy’s book will change the way that both political scientists and citizens think about contemporary South Africa.
About the Author:
Thiven Reddy is a senior lecturer in the Department of Political Studies at the University of Cape Town, South Africa.

In South Africa, two unmistakable features describe post-Apartheid politics. The first is the formal framework of liberal democracy, including regular elections, multiple political parties and a range of progressive social rights. The second is the politics of the extraordinary , which includes a political discourse that relies on threats and the use of violence, the crude re-racialization of numerous conflicts, and protests over various popular grievances. In this highly original work, Thiven Reddy shows how conventional approaches to understanding democratization have failed to capture the complexities of South Africa s post-Apartheid transition. Rather, as a product of imperial expansion, the South African state, capitalism and citizen identities have been uniquely shaped by a particular mode of domination, namely settler colonialism. South Africa, Settler Colonialism and the Failures of Liberal Democracy is an important work that sheds light on the nature of modernity, democracy and the complex politics of contemporary South Africa.
