What Holds Us Together

by David Chidester; Phillip Dexter; Wilmot James

Jan 1, 2003
This book addresses the crucial question of social cohesion: what holds us together when everything seems to be pulling us apart? Set in the context of a changing South Africa, the book engages this question of social cohesion under difficult globalising conditions. As the chapters demonstrate, globalisation has presented not only obstacles but also opportunities for social cohesion in South Africa. This book explores both.
