About the book

This volume of essays is a reflection on social memory as a force for social and economic transformation. Written by scholars and organic intellectuals, it essentially focuses on the uses of social memory, in particular the conflict between the legacies of colonialism and the movement for fundamental change. The content addresses both experts and ordinary citizens alike, with a view to advancing discourse on where we are right now as a nation, and how we move on from here to achieve meaningful transformation. As scholars and public representatives with a deep understanding of the social, economic and political dynamics of modern history, the contributors offer their unique perspectives and reflections on history, politics, economics, culture, education, ethics and the arts, as well as the links that bind these aspects into an ecology of ideas and attitudes. The well-considered ideas which are represented here, reflect diverse perspectives which deserve to be read attentively.
