It is a great privilege to be invited to participate in launching Sandra Liebenberg's book. This book is a monumental piece of work. It combines an account of the struggle for the constitutional recognition of social and economic rights in South Africa, a jurisprudential analysis of the basis for this recognition, a comprehensive and detailed account of the way in which our courts have dealt with social and economic rights in this phase of the development of this area of our law, and a scholarly critique of the judgments and the literature which have now emerged.
