Restless Nation: Making sense of troubled times

Wits University Associate Professor William Gumede speaks about his latest book 'Restless Nation: Making sense of troubled times'. Camera & Editing: Darlene Creamer. Recorded: 17/08/2012

24th August 2012


Font size: -+

Our rainbow nation has become a restless nation. Citizens are faced with poor service delivery and corruption, while a new bling culture has infected both politics and business.

William Gumede takes a fearless look at these and other burning issues which threaten our democracy: self-interested leadership batlles within the ANC, attacks on the Constitution, black economic-empowerment strategies which only benefit a few, racism and moral bankruptcy. Does the government have the ability – as well as the will – to lead us out of this malaise? Gumede is not convinced.


Yet, in his distinctive style, he not only criticises but also offers solutions to our unique challenges. Restless Nation brings together some of his best writing.

Restless Nation is published by Tafelberg
