How it works


  • A social and economic survey covering five South African urban areas - Cape Town, Durban, Vereeniging, New Brighton and Katlehong
  • Sixty years ago the term "Native" was not derogatory

No dustjacket as published, black cloth-boards, gilt to spine, with the upper board rubbed in register with what may have been a title-label, lightly sunned plain endpapers, xi/123 pp of prelims, text illustrated with graphs and tables. and references and index

Despite the rubbed covers, this is a very good copy overall of an almost literally groundbreaking report that is seldom seen today - complete, tightly bound, not ex-library, with contents bright, unmarked and undiscoloured
