South Africa's Brittle Peace by Pierre Du Toit
Book DescriptionSouth Africa has succeeded in establishing a democracy, but has yet to eliminate public violence from society. This book takes up the issue of post settlement violence and ways of consolidating the newly found democratic peace. The role of negotiated institutions such as the new police force, economic factors relevant to the anticipated "peace dividend", external factors such as arms smuggling networks, popular responses to rising threats to physical safety, and symbolic factors in enhancing the capacity of the state to deal with this issue are examined.
