The Other Law: Non-state Ordering in SA

  • R 491.00


The “other law” refers to those domains of ordering in society which are organised outside of the state. This book describes and analyses a range of case studies during South Africa’s transition to democracy and in the post-apartheid era. They fall into two main categories: first, non-state dispute resolution (traditional justice, street committees, religious courts, makgotla in rural areas, alternative dispute resolution structures) and, second, non-state policing/crime prevention (anti-crime committees, self-defence units, marshals and monitors, private security).This book is a valuable addition to the literature on alternative justice, the informal sector, legal anthropology, ADR, policing, political transitions, governance and religious studies.
