In recent years the state's regulation of land use planning has increasingly become the subject of legal research and analysis in South(ern) Africa, a matter that has assumed some urgency in view of rapid urbanization and the concomitant need to put in place land-use planning regulatory systems that will ensure orderly co-existence of people in safe and healthy urban living spaces. Where the state fails to act proactively in this regard, urban and infrastructure decay usually follows, creating an environment conducive to exploitation, criminal behaviour, corruption and a survivalist contestation for resources. In many African urban spaces these conditions have become irreversible simply because government ineptitude, followed by government withdrawal, has left a governance vacuum that is exploited and filled by other more powerful forces, usually of the rogue type and driven by self-interest.
Hockly's Law of Insolvency / Hockly se Insolvensiereg, Robert Sharrock, Kathleen Van Der Linde and Alastair Smith : boekbesprekingAuthor Anneli LoubserSource: Tydskrif vir die Suid-Afrikaanse Reg 2014, pp 921 –922 (2014)More Less
The first edition of Hockly's Insolvency Law was published in 1940 - in English only; the first Afrikaans edition came much later in 1996, and in the many years that have since passed, it has carved out a special niche for itself in the area of insolvency law publications. There are several reasons for this, but two stand out: firstly, it is updated regularly and is therefore a reliable source of recent law and case law in particular. This edition (its ninth) comes only six years after the previous edition, and this has been the pattern at least since its fifth edition (published in 1990): it has been followed by updated editions every four to six years.

Criminal Procedure Handbook, J.J. Joubert (Ed), T. Geldenhuys, J.P. Swanepoel, S.S. Terblanche and S.E. Van Der Merwe : boekbesprekingSource: Tydskrif vir die Suid-Afrikaanse Reg 2014, pp 923 –924 (2014)More Less
Criminal Procedure Handbook is available in English and Afrikaans. It is a revised and updated eleventh edition which introduces the reader to the fundamental principles and values underlying this field. It is in two parts. The first part deals with selected general principles of the law of criminal procedure and the second part with the criminal process which is in turn sub-divided into four phases, namely pre-trial investigative criminal procedure, the trial, sentence and post-verdict and sentence remedies of review, appeal, mercy, indemnity and free pardon. An appendix to the handbook contains the schedules to the Criminal Procedure Act 51 of 1977, which is a helpful source, since the schedules are often referred to substantively in the text. Selected sections of the constitution are also contained in the appendix. These sections constitute the most relevant aspects of the bill of rights that feature in the context of the text.

Introduction to Labour Relations in South Africa has been in the market for almost three decades. This puts the publication in a league of its own. The point is that there aren't many titles in this field that can lay claim to such a record. Throughout its existence, the Introduction to Labour Relations in South Africa has been revised and reprinted on several occasions. In addition, it has gone through numerous editions. The current version, which is being reviewed here, is the eleventh edition. The question is what gives this publication such a staying power? The success of the Introduction to Labour Relations in South Africa can be attributed to its penchant for addressing important themes apposite to the field of labour relations in South Africa.

In observing the importance of the rule of law, Bingham stated the following: "The hallmarks of a regime which flouts the rule of law are, alas, all too familiar: the midnight knock on the door, the sudden disappearance, the show trial, the subjection of prisoners to genetic experimentation, the confession extracted by torture, the gulag and the concentration camp, the gas chamber, the practice of genocide or ethnic cleansing, the waging of aggressive war. The list is endless. Better to put up with some choleric judges and greedy lawyers" (The Rule of Law (2010) 9). Applied Law for Police Officials is a textbook available in English and Afrikaans for police officials. It is a revised and updated fourth edition which focuses on supplying police officials with knowledge and understanding of criminal law, criminal procedure and the law of evidence. This corpus of information is conveyed against the backdrop of the constitution and other relevant legislation, in particular the Criminal Procedure Act 51 of 1977. The book consists of 20 chapters.
