Review of Taming the Disorderly City: The Spatial Landscape of Johannesburg after Apartheid, by Martin J. Murray
(2011)
  • Clara Irazabal, Columbia University
Abstract
Murray has produced a mesmerizing account of Johannesburg as an iconic neoliberal city of despicable inequality and polarization. According to his portrayal, the blatantly racist spatial regime of apartheid Johannesburg has given way, in the post-apartheid era, to a classist spatial war against the poor.
