is part of the very practical 'Juta's Pocket Statutes series'. The format of the book is designed to fit literally into the pocket. It is a noble idea that every South African should have a copy of the Bill of Rights in his or her pocket. I doubt that the publication would ever reach the 5 to 6.5 billion print run of Mao Zedong's 'Little Red Book', but it could have a more profound and positive impact, if like the 'Little Red Book', it were carried in the pocket of every citizen. The book contains a short (three pages) but easy-to-understand overview of the Bill of Rights. also contains the words of the National Anthem of South Africa. A tribute to multilingualism, the South African anthem contains no fewer than five official languages. This may have prompted Juta to include an English translation of the anthem.
