Comrades in Business is a fascinating and refreshingly non-partisan socio-political account of the ‘new-elite’in politics and business in South Africa. Can they ensure stability? Can a South African nation be built? The high lifestyle of the new elites is questioned and possible future conflicts with disappointed voters are explored. Comrades in Business is also a wide-ranging study, in which the authors provide comparisons with similar processes in other parts of the world where identity, racism, anti-semitism and multiculturalism are important issues.
Written in an easy style, this significant analysis of the course of the transformation is essential reading for anyone both in politics and in business who wishes to keep a finger on the pulse of development in South Africa.
