While a great deal has been written on the topic already, this textbook focuses on introducing human rights law in a comprehensive but easy-to-understand manner to the benefit of both lecturers and students. It is hoped that this work will assist lecturers who teach the subject at first- or second-year level, both in the LLB degree and other university programmes, as well as non-governmental organisations and others parties who train their staff or stakeholders in basic principles of the law. The book should also benefit students by covering the breadth of human rights law directly applicable to students studying law in South Africa.
The text contains a number of scenarios to help readers grasp the material being discussed by illustrating relevant constitutional principles and issues. Cases are integrated into the text in a manner that should facilitate an understanding of their application. This book contains complete court judgments, statutes, a bibliography and questions to respective chapters which will assist lecturers and students in finding their way beyond the book at whatever level they deem appropriate.
Practical, relevant exercises with answers incorporating the latest information in respect of generally accepted accounting practice.
This title is meant to convey the emphasis which is now placed on the valuable contents of the safe (the information) rather than just on the safe in which those contents are stored (the computer). It should also convey to potential readers the impact of information communication technologies on the law, the increasing importance of telecommunications law and legal aspects of electronic commerce and the convergence between these fields and IT law.
This fifth edition of International Law: A South African Perspective is now titled Dugard's International Law: A South African Perspective, in recognition of the fact that this work is a continuation of the earlier editions written by John Dugard. The substance of the work has undergone major changes to take account of new developments both on the international legal scene and in South Africa. Dugard's International Law: A South African Perspective presents a South African perspective of international law. The basic principles of international law are described and examined with reference to the principal sources of international law. This examination, however, takes place within the context of South African law. South African state practice, judicial decisions and legislation on international law receive equal trea tment with international law as it is practised and taught abroad.
The book consists of three parts.
Part 1, which comprises 5 chapters, deals with the legal-philosophical aspects of communications law. In Part II , we deal with certain statutory and common law limitations to the right to freedom of expression. Part III deals with specific methods of communication, ie the press, electronic communications, broadcasting, computers, and entertainment.

Zimbabwe’s Constitution of 2013 provides for multi-level government at national, provincial and local level. This book explores the nature, evolution and future of this multi-level system of government against the background of international best practices.
Provincial and Local Government Reform in Zimbabwe: An analysis of the Law, Policy and Practice considers key questions about the multi-level system of government and shows how it radically differs from the old Lancaster House constitutional order.
The roles that provincial and local governments, as well as traditional leaders, fulfil in the new order are examined, the reforms needed to implement the system are outlined, and lessons to be learnt from other countries with multi-level governments are considered.
This book aims to aid the realisation of Zimbabwe’s constitutional goals of development, democracy and peace through effective multilevel governance and contributes to the international discourse on decentralisation and the role of subnational governments in Africa.
Building on the success of the first edition, the second edition of The Law of Arbitration: South African and International Arbitration sets out the South African common law, legislation and local and international case law applicable to each stage of the arbitration cycle, including the arbitration agreement, intervention by courts pending arbitration, the appointment of and challenges to the arbitrators, the pleadings and arbitration proceedings, and the arbitration award. A brief overview of alternative dispute resolution approaches is also provided as a contextual introduction.
The second edition now incorporates the new International Arbitration Act 15 of 2017 and updates the references to local case law as well as international case law relating to the UNCITRAL Model Arbitration Law (MAL). Act 15 of 2017 cements South Africa’s position not only as a venue for international arbitration but also for the enforcement of foreign arbitral awards, making this title indispensable for South African arbitrators wanting to gain experience in international arbitration.
The following appendices are incorporated in the second edition of The Law of Arbitration:

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.
