South African Constitutional Law in Context offers a comprehensive, clear, and concise introduction to the study of South African constitutional law. Situated within a framework of historical, political, social and economic context, the text invites readers to discover the meaning, operation and effects of the South African Constitution, and to understand its critical importance and potential. The text balances an accurate description of the most authoritative interpretation of the constitutional text with a critical and enquiring approach, providing depth and diversity of perspective, and engaging readers in an interactive, topical and stimulating manner.
