Bill Dixon, Elrena van der Spuy, eds. Justice Gained? . Justice Gained? Crime and Crime Control in South Africa's Transition. Cape Town: University of Cape Town Press, 2004. In the introduction, Bill Dixon draws attention to the meaning of "transition"-in particular whether seemingly new developments are "indeed the product of change or, rather, an example of the stubborn persistence of authoritarian habits, undemocratic institutions, or unjust social structures" (p. xxiv). These are critical questions as South Africa struggles to overcome its violent past-a difficult task indeed in the midst of what is perceived to be an unrelenting crime epidemic.

Read chapter 7, 'Cosmetic crime prevention', pp. 163-192, by Bill Dixon.

Crime and Crime Control in South Africa's Transition. South Africa has a system of criminal justice that may be unique in the world

Crime and Crime Control in South Africa's Transition. Cape Town: UCT Press/Devon, UK: Willan Publishing, 2004. Distributed by International Specialized Book Services, In. Portland, Ore. xxxvii + 266 pp. Tables. South Africa has a system of criminal justice that may be unique in the world. First of all, it is constitutionally committed to a system in which the death penalty is prohibited and extensive rights for the accused and for prisoners are recognized. Published July 30, 2004 by Uct Press.

Key questions in contemporary South African criminology are examined in these essays, including Why is crime such a persistent problem? and How have crime control practices altered in response to the challenges of the post-apartheid era?. Teachers, researchers, policy advisors, and practitioners challenge some of the received wisdom re-emerging in a discipline in danger of both forgetting its own history, and of misunderstanding the role of critical social science in a democratic South Africa.
