In the coming decades the bulk of Africas anticipated urban population growth will take place in smaller cities. Failure to manage environmental and public health problems in one such aspiring city Edendale has fostered severe pollution seemingly intractable poverty and gender inequalities that directly fuel one of the worst hivaids pandemics in the world. A nuanced and timely presentation of South African responses to chang- ing times conditions opportunities and state interventions Welcome to Greater Edendale reconstructs nearly two centuries of contestation over land governance human rights identity housing sanitation public health and the meaning of development. Bringing gender and health issues to the foreground Marc Epprecht reveals many unexpected or forgotten triumphs against environmental injustice but also unsettling continuities between colonial apartheid and post-apartheid policies to spur economic growth. Sheltered from the glare of national media and often overlooked by scholars smaller cities like Edendale attract political patronage corruption and violent protests while rapid climate change promises to further strain their infrastructure social services and public health. A challenging innovative and thoughtful examination of the history and politics of South Africa Welcome to Greater Edendale questions the common assumptions embedded in environmental policy gender relations democracy and the neoliberal model of development in which so many African cities are ensnared. Marc Epprecht is professor in the Department of Global Development Studies at Queens University and author of Hungochani The History of a Dissident Sexuality in Southern Africa.

In many areas negotiations on disarmament and arms control are at a standstill. In Disarmament under International Law John Kierulf examines and discusses how disarmament arms control and non-proliferation of both conventional weapons and weapons of mass destruction are regulated in existing treaties and conventions. From his perspective as a former disarma- ment negotiator Kierulf explains the United Nations disarmament machin- ery and procedures and describes the UNs essential role in promoting disarmament. Underlining the continued and serious threat posed by nuclear weapons Kierulf appeals for increased and effective international efforts to reduce their number and ultimately eliminate them. Presenting information and analysis on a comprehensive range of issues Disarmament under International Law is an essential guide for anyone inter- ested in gaining knowledge about the current state of international security. John Kierulf is a retired diplomat with Denmarks Ministry of Foreign Affairs. 3 2 S P E C I F I C AT I O N S January 2017 978-0-7735-4823-7 34.95A CDN 32.95A US paper 978-0-7735-4822-0 110.00S CDN 110.00S US cloth 6 x 9 304pp World rights except UK Eire and Europe Ebook available I N T E R N AT I O N A L L A WU R B A N H I S T O R Y A F R I C A N S T U D I E S Welcome to Greater Edendale Histories of Environment Health and Gender in an African City marc epprecht A mid-sized South African citys struggle against its legacies of environmental injustice.
