Drawing on her long involvement in the investigation of forced removals and her experience as Regional Land Claims Comissioner for KwaZulu-Natal from 1995 to 2000, she provides an account of the programme of land restitution as a whole and the limitations of its 'master narrative' of loss and restoration."--BOOK JACKET." ;
