Editorial Reviews


It is critical to add work of this type to the corpus of literature on South African cities, and I warmly welcome this contribution. The issues raised here are enormously important to many South African women. The scholarship represented here is in my view excellent—the engagement with the literatures is good, and the research is extremely interesting and well constructed. Important, original, and enjoyable.

(Alan Mabin, University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg)

At Home with Apartheid is at once modest in spirit and profound in effect. Rebecca Ginsburg’s meticulous scholarship and her ability to allow her informants to speak for themselves create an unforgettable portrait of apartheid from the inside, one that vividly demonstrates the role of mundane domestic spaces in shaping the moral and social experiences of the South African racial order. This is a major landmark in the growing field of race and space studies.

(Dell Upton, University of California, Los Angeles)
