Promised power

08 September 2008

Back on its feet, UCT Press has released its latest book, Land, Power & Custom: Controversies generated by South Africa's Communal Land Rights Act.

The title, a joint project between UCT Press and the Legal Resources Centre, examines some of the effects of the Communal Land Rights Act, aka Clara, on issues such as women's rights and the status of customary law.

Many of the chapters argue that the Act "entrenches distortions" that have their roots in colonialism and apartheid. UCT's Profs Tom Bennett and Christina Murray of the Department of Public Law and Assoc Prof Lungisile Ntsebeza of the Department of Sociology contributed chapters.
