Laying Ghosts to Rest offers a penetrating look at the South African transition and what is wrong with it. In her characteristic forthright style, Dr Ramphele's new book offers both indictment and inspiration. She touches upon: the distrust between South Africa's people, incomplete reconciliation and violent crime, the failure of schools and the government's skills programme to educate South Africans, globalisation and how South Africa is failing to fill its place in Africa and the world, the costs of BEE and 'transformation' in the private sector and in government, problems of leadership in South Africa.
