Abstract:This collection of essays deals with the political and administrative dynamics in South Africa since the birth of democracy in 1994, through the era of the Mbeki administration (1999-2008) and the transition to the Zuma administration, that took office in May 2009. It deals with the challenges of building a developmental State in South Africa and delivering on the promises of land reform, agrarian transformation and rural development. Each chapter focuses on an issue identified by the author as part of the challenge facing the Zuma administration. Contents: Introduction: political and governance challenges (Kwandiwe M.
