Presented by David Wasdell

A collection of seminal ideas, insights and reflections on the dynamics of South Africa. Subjects range from the complexity of polarisation to the role of world citizen in the Global Village; from unconscious sexual fears and guilt in the black/white relationship, to the dynamics of the Jewish community in the Cape; from paranoid processes and the need for personal integration to the paradoxical psychosis of religion; from the cultural fixation of the expatriate communities to the realistic hope of inter-racial cellular networks; from the application of Catastrophe Theory to the insights of Systems Analysis. [May 1987]

[The South Africa Collection is a series of background and position papers written in preparation for and as an outcome of a six-week period of community consultancy in the Western Cape in May and June 1987]
