Law and sacrifice draws on the uniquely expanisve protection of the
fundamental rights now entrenched in the South African constitution
to outline a new theory of law. Johan van der Walt argues that
apartheid must be understood as more than a racist abuse of power,
and here he articulates its 'sacrificial logic'. It is in going
beyond this logic that the truly democratic potential of the South
African Constitution can be understood. Combining a rigorous
theoretical understanding with a subtle political engagement, Law
and Sacrifice is a dazzling interrogation of the limits and
possibilities of democratic pluralism.
