Shaping markets through competition and economic regulation is at the heart of addressing the development challenges facing countries in southern Africa. The contributors to Competition Law And Economic Regulation: Addressing Market Power In Southern Africa critically assess the efficacy of the competition and economic regulation frameworks, including the impact of a number of the regional competition authorities in a range of sectors throughout southern Africa.
Featuring academics as well as practitioners in the field, the book addresses issues common to southern African countries, where markets are small and concentrated, with particularly high barriers to entry, and where the resources to enforce legislation against anti-competitive conduct are limited. What is needed, the contributors argue, is an understanding of competition and regional integration as part of an inclusive growth agenda for Africa. By examining competition and regulation in a single framework, and viewing this within the southern African experience, this volume adds new perspectives to the global competition literature.
It is an essential reference tool and will be of great interest to policymakers and regulators, as well as the rapidly growing ecosystem of legal practitioners and economists engaged in the field.

If you have an interest in law and politics, South Africa’s political economy and the processes of policy-making in a parliamentary context, this is an essential read.
The advancement of black South Africans in ownership and management in the private sector is growing steadily. This growth is aided by government scorecard that penalise corporations that fail to include black people in senior positions and management. Some claim that this process will lead to a more fair, less racially biased economy. But will this transform the basic structure of the economy to benefit the people as a whole? Changing The Colour Of Capital unpacks the fundamental character of the South African economy and examines the relationship between the political system and the economy.
Contributors include Trevor Manuel, Rob Davies, Jeremy Cronin, Ben Turok, Philisiwe Buthelezi, Adekeye Adebajo, Enver Daniels, Cassius Lubisi and Richard Levin.

South Africa's pioneer and foremost thinker and voice on Black Economic Advancement, Phinda Mzwakhe Madi, is back with a bang. His first book, Affirmative Action in Corporate South Africa, triggered the first wave of Affirmative Action programmes in the country. His follow up book, Black Economic Empowerment in the New South Africa, led to the formation of the BEE Commission and eventually the creation of the country's policy and codes of good practice. Now his third book in the trilogy, BEE 20 years later - The Baby and the Bathwater, evaluates progress so far and startles with its fresh perspective on the way forward.
Twenty years after the introduction of BEE, Madi’s view is that the time for follow-up and reflection has come. Clear trends and lessons can now be discerned and learned from. He contends that there is an unfortunate narrative that is gaining currency in South Africa generally and the corporate world in particular, as well as numerous sections of civil society, that BEE has been nothing but a smoke and mirrors initiative towards oligarchy, hence his chosen title: BEE 20 years later - The Baby and The Bathwater.
He believes that, having been the first black author to have written on this subject, he has a unique view of the evolution of the process. As a black entrepreneur himself and a director of various top listed companies with a total combined turnover of more than R90bn, he not only has a conceptual and academic understanding of the subject matter, but also has an insider’s view and experience.
As the title suggests, there is now a tendency to want to ‘throw the baby out with the bathwater’. His book argues that we need to make a very clear distinction between the bouncing baby and the (at times) dirty bathwater. The book analyses both the bouncing baby and the unfortunate dirt and grime that covers the bathwater. It makes a very frank, clinical and yet balanced argument on how this distinction needs to be made, as well as why and how we should all ensure that the baby both survives and thrives going forward, whilst getting rid of the ugly side of BEE - the dirty bathwater. But more importantly, he examines how to restore the credibility of this process so that it truly and genuinely moves away from just being seen as the enrichment of the few and lives true to its promise: the economic empowerment of the many.

McKenzie's law of building and engineering contracts and arbitration is an essential reference for those connected with the construction industry. It is the leading reference work dealing with South African contract law relating specifically to engineering and building contracts.
This is the first book to explain the law applicable to the updated Joint Building Contracts Committee (JBCC) Principle Building Agreement (6th edition, 2014) and the Engineering General Conditions of Contract for Construction Works (2nd edition, 2010), which are both annexed to the book and extensively cross-referenced to assist the reader. The book also cross-references the relevant clauses of the FIDIC Contract Agreement (1999). Disputes arising out of building contracts are often referred to arbitration for solution.
This work therefore deals with the effect of the Arbitration Act 42 of 1965 and the Association of Arbitrators Standard Procedure Rules, which are also reproduced as annexures in the book.
The new edition of Everyone's Guide To Labour Law aims to assist employers and employees in respect of their rights, duties and obligations in most labour-related matters, and deals with the relevant legislation, the most common pitfalls, and the processes and procedures that must be followed in the event of a problem.
Practical examples provide clarity and better understanding.
The first edition of The Building Contract by the late Eyvind Finsen was published in 1999 and followed on the 1991 publication of The New Building Contract. The earlier book was an introduction to the new Joint Buildings Contract Committee (JBCC) contract documents, whereas the later book provided commentary on the JBCC building agreements, which by then were widely used in the construction industry.
This third edition, now named Finsen’s The Building Contract, has been revised and updated. It covers the latest Principal Building Agreement (PBA) and the Nominated/Selected Subcontract Agreement (NSSA), as well as the Minor Works Agreement (MWA), and the various contract data documents and the associated forms and certificates that are used with these agreements. The Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) has agreed that South African organs of state may use the private sector agreement. Accordingly, this agreement has been amended in consultation with the National Department of Public Works to cater for certain of the State’s requirements.
Finsen’s book is widely recognised as a reference work in the construction industry. This updated edition will be of significant value to building professionals as well as to client bodies, attorneys and advocates who specialise in resolving construction disputes. It is also intended for students who aim to enter these fields. This book aims to equip its readers with the knowledge needed to avoid contractual disputes.
The purpose of this book is to set out the principles and conceptual issues of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). In addition, the book includes schematic summaries of the accounting and disclosure requirements of the applicable accounting standards. This book is also available in eBook format.
