Focus 81 - State & Nation

This edition of Focus, the last for the year, looks at State and Nation in South Africa. With the nation facing a plethora of challenges and an upcoming 18 months that many see as definitional for South Africa's future prospects, this edition analyses a number of important political and legal questions. Its publication also comes soon after the celebrations of the centenary of Helen Suzman's birth. This edition pays tribute to her life and legacy and, in doing so, hopes to draw lessons for our contemporary society from Helen's firmly held liberal principles.
