Who built Jozi? : discovering memory at Wits Junction by Luli Callinicos( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 28 libraries worldwide
"If you stand on the hill at the far corner of Louis Botha Avenue and Boundary Road in Parktown, Johannesburg, and look northwards, you will see the road sloping down to the thickly forested suburbs below. A few paces down the hill on your left is an unlovely but historic beacon ... now part of a reinterpreted landscape, called Wits Junction, a uniquely historical precinct. Jozi is noted for its diversity - if there was the crassness of naked commerce, there were also the more subtle, countervailing cultures of millions of men and women who came to make their home or occupation in Johannesburg. In Who Built Jozi? Luli Callinicos weaves a fascinating fabric, exploring the foundations of Johannesburg by making the connections between the legacy of those first newcomers to the city and today's post-apartheid generation living in the residential complex, a conversation between the present and the past."--Back cover
