1994 Occasional Paper
By Stewart, Frances; Klugman, Jeni; Helmsing, A. H.

Dual structures in the social, economic and political spheres are legacies of the racist settler regime. In this context the national government has had the difficult task of attempting to redress past inequities without alienating the white population.
