Domains of Freedom

This collection of essays acknowledges the enormous expectations placed on the shoulders of the South African revolution to produce an alternative political regime in response to apartheid and global neo-liberalism. It does not lament the inability of South Africas democracy to provide deeper freedoms or suggest that since it hasn't this is some form of betrayal. Freedom is made possible and/or limited by local political choices contemporary global conditions and the complexities of social change. This book explores the multiplicity of spaces within which the dynamics of social change unfold and the complex ways in which power is produced and reproduced. In this way it seeks to understand the often non-linear practices through which alternative possibilities emerge the lengthy and often indirect ways in which new communities are imagined and new solidarities are built. In this sense this book is not a collection of hope or despair. Nor is it a book that seeks to situate itself between these two poles. Instead it aims to read the present historically critically and politically and to offer insights into the ongoing iterative and often messy struggles for freedom.
