Colin Bundy

Short-Changed?: South Africa since Apartheid is a book written by Colin Bundy, a historian and academic with a long-standing interest in South African politics and history. The book was first published in 2006 and provides a critical assessment of South Africa's progress since the end of apartheid.

The book argues that although significant progress has been made in terms of political freedoms and democratic governance, South Africa remains deeply divided and unequal. The author suggests that many of the promises made in the early days of the post-apartheid era have not been fulfilled, particularly in terms of addressing poverty, unemployment, and inequality.

Bundy draws on a wide range of sources, including interviews with politicians, activists, and ordinary South Africans, as well as historical and economic data. He highlights the challenges facing the country, such as the legacy of apartheid, corruption, and ineffective governance, and offers suggestions for how South Africa can move forward.

Overall, Short-Changed? offers a nuanced and thought-provoking assessment of South Africa's post-apartheid era, and is a valuable read for anyone interested in understanding this complex and fascinating country. Description by ChatGPT.
