n Journal of Public Administration - The Zuma Administration - Critical Challenges, Kwandiwe Kondlo and Mashupye H. Maserumule (Eds.) : book review

Volume 45, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0036-0767



The book is a valuable contribution to the debates and policy proposals currently taking place in the South African body politic. At its launch in Cape Town early this year - which was attended by local and international media, politicians and policy-makers, public intellectuals and opinion-makers and scholars from different disciplinary pursuits - the book engendered so much debate on the Zuma administration. It is not surprising that the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) dedicated so much airtime in its different radio stations where the editors of the book fielded questions and engaged in a public intellectual discourse about its contents. This book is prescribed at a number of universities in South Africa, United States of America and Europe. In congratulating the editors and authors of different chapters of the book, a professor from the University of Witwatersrand remarked that the book represents the best of scholarship in policy discourse. Well, I concur!
