This volume pays tribute to the constitutional jurisprudence of Justice Laurie Ackermann, now retired from the Constitutional Court of South Africa.
The South African Constitution pushes against the limits of some of the great jurisprudential traditions of both the West and Africa, and has been assigned such a crucial transformational role that it has been at the forefront of attempts to connect law to the pursuit of emancipation. Justice Ackermann has played a leading role in the development of a suitable jurisprudence.
In focusing specifically on the relationship between dignity and freedom in the post-apartheid legal order, the essays collected here not only provide a critical perspective on a central theme in South Africa’s developing constitutional law, but also bring into view emerging answers to fundamental jurisprudential questions of growing international prominence.
There is already ample evidence that the new constitutional order has triggered an unprecedented flowering of South African jurisprudential debate. The aim of this book is to provide a sensitive and intuitive understanding of these debates. In addition, lecturers will be given an innovative approach to what has been previously regarded as a difficult, boring and irrelevant subject.

Pedagogically developed as a learning resource for students with varying backgrounds and skills levels. Supported by ancillary teaching materials which assist in teaching and learning.

A Guide Through IFRS Part A [July 2012 edition]
Sustainable development currently dominates the agenda of government programmes and projects in Africa. The developmental challenges posed by population increases, the prevalence of HIV/Aids and urbanisation trends, inter alia, require government institutions and other development agencies to improve performance and delivery. The implementation of sustainable development depends largely on all stakeholders being involved in the planning and evaluation of respective programmes and projects. Issues relating to entrepreneurship and small business development, policy management, local government integrated development planning, and the role of women, need to be attended to effectively and efficiently. To achieve meaningful sustainable development objectives, entities such as the African Union and initiatives like NEPAD need to coordinate regional and continental development activities. However, a number of imperatives impact on the outcomes of all attempts to achieve sustainable development. In this well-researched, important book, some of the most prominent sustainable development issues are investigated. The chapters were authored by academics who are well-versed in their respective fields.

Until quite recently questions about methodology in legal research have been largely confined to understanding the role of doctrinal research as a scholarly discipline. In turn this has involved asking questions not only about coverage but, fundamentally, questions about the identity of the discipline. Is it (mainly) descriptive, hermeneutical, or normative? Should it also be explanatory? Legal scholarship has been torn between, on the one hand, grasping the expanding reality of law and its context, and, on the other, reducing this complex whole to manageable proportions. The purely internal analysis of a legal system, isolated from any societal context, remains an option, and is still seen in the approach of the French academy, but as law aims at ordering society and influencing human behaviour, this approach is felt by many scholars to be insufficient. Consequently many attempts have been made to conceive legal research differently. Social scientific and comparative approaches have proven fruitful. However, does the introduction of other approaches leave merely a residue of 'legal doctrine', to which pockets of social sciences can be added, or should legal doctrine be merged with the social sciences? What would such a broad interdisciplinary field look like and what would its methods be? This book is an attempt to answer some of these questions.
