Marriage Land & Custom

  • R 611.00

In Marriage, Land and Custom, the contributors consider how the far reaching processes of change and adaptation that are currently underway in relation to marriage and the land rights of single women living in ‘communal’ areas in South Africa relate to one another, and to the broader economic and political developments in South African society. The book also examines the impact of the implementation of the Recognition of Customary Marriages Act in this volatile arena.

The focus in Marriage, Land and Custom is on the insights and experiences of academics and practitioners from different disciplinary frameworks, who address the complex interface between poverty, HIV, declining employment rates and the increasing number of social grants and their relationship to changing options for women, law reform and the shifting balance of power at local level.
