Outcast Cape Town
Outcast Cape Town
By John Western
University of Minnesota Press, 1981, 372 pp

A social geographer painstakingly maps the economic and social dislocation visited upon Capetown's Coloured population by the implementation of racial separation within the city. In the process he tells us more than perhaps we need to know about the administrative apparatus of boundaries, zones, etc., but also fills in his outline with feeling descriptions of the human desolation and adjustment involved.
