This comprehensive, edited volume of 15 chapters canvasses a wide range of contemporary perspectives on socio-economic rights mobilisation in South Africa, from various inter-disciplinary angles. For those who have followed the topic in recent years, the volume is a veritable ‘who’s who’ of scholars and scholar-activists involved in socio-economic rights mobilisation in South Africa, and in particular constitutional litigation. Several of the numerous, and often contested views on this important sub-area of human rights have previously featured in the pages of this journal.
