In South Africa land is one of the most significant and controversial topics. Land restitution has been a complex, multidimensional process that has failed to meet the expectations with which it was initially launched in 1994. Ordinary citizens, policymakers, and analysts have begun to question progress in land reform in the years since South Africa's transition to democracy. Land, Memory, Reconstruction, and Justice brings together a wealth of topical material and case studies by leading experts in the field who present a rich mix of perspectives from politics, sociology, geography, social anthropology, law, history, and agricultural economics. The collection addresses both the material and the symbolic dimensions of land claims, in rural and urban contexts, and explores the complex intersection of issues confronting the restitution program, from the promotion of livelihoods to questions of rights, identity, and transitional justice. A valuable contribution to the field of land and agrarian studies, both in South Africa and internationally, it is undoubtedly the most comprehensive treatment to date of South Africa's postapartheid land claims process and will be essential reading for scholars and students of land reform for years to come.

"Written and edited by some of the leading scholars and activists on the land question in South Africa, this book is set to make an important and welcome contribution." - Lungisile Ntsebeza, University of Cape Town "The case studies point to how a sense of community has been forged or fractured, or both, by making claims, living with the consequences of settlement agreements, and government involvement after restitution." - International Journal of African Historical Studies "An outstanding and timely collection, Land, Memory, Reconstruction, and Justice is the most comprehensive treatment of land restitution in South Africa. It brings together a wealth of thematic and case study material from across the country and provides a rounded view of the multiple meanings of land restitution in postapartheid South Africa." - Ben Cousins, Institute for Poverty, Land and Agrarian Studies (PLAAS), University of the Western Cape
