How it works


With an essay by Neville Dubow

First edition: 260 pages, profusely illustrated with black and white photographs, black cloth titled in silver on the upper cover and spine, a fine copy in the dust jacket.

Signed by David Goldblatt on the half-title page.

South Africa: The Structure of Things Then is a biography of South Africa from the 1960s until 1990. It embodies an overview of the changing and many faces of South African culture and history through its buildings. Many of the photographs that comprise this book have travelled to galleries in New York, Rotterdam, Berlin and Australia and continue to be represented in local state-run galleries. Thus, they represent art with its own international recognition, beyond the reputation which this book under review will earn.
