Visions of Black Economic Empowerment



Mangcu X, Marcus G, Shubane K & Hadland A (eds.) (2007) Visions of Black Economic Empowerment. Auckland Park South Africa: Jacana. http://www.jacana.co.za/index.php?page=shop.product_details&product_id=211&flypage=flypage-ask.tpl&pop=0&vmcchk=1&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=161

From high profile figures such as Cyril Ramaphosa, Albie Sachs and Wendy Luhabe to analysts such as Wendy Lucas Bull, Vuyo Jack and Itumeleng Mahabane; to practitioners such as Lot Ndlovu, Eric Mafuna, Nolitha Fakude, this book brings together leading South African analysts and practitioners in the most comprehensive analysis of Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) to date. The volume situates Black Economic Empowerment within the larger trajectory of black business imperatives for empowerment; and provides policy recommendations for legislative and regulatory clarity. Visions of Black Economic Empowerment achieves what the debates on empowerment have thus far failed to do which is to examine the sociological foundations of BEE. Its appeal, however, goes beyond technical discussions of BEE to an examination of the political economy of BEE and the raging debates about capital concentration in a land still characterised by mass poverty and inequality. This volume is essential for the academic and research community, business practitioners and analysts and for a public that is hungry for the analytical tools to evaluate the most talked about economic policy of the post-apartheid transition.
