Equality and Non-discrimination in South Africa explores and critiques law and law making in the nascent constitutional democracy in the new South Africa, with a focus on the complex role of the executive, parliament, political parties, the media and civil society. The capacity and potential in the judiciary and the legal profession in promoting and protecting values and rights of equality and non-discrimination is examined. Substantive equality and non-discrimination law in theory and practice is considered critically from a broad historical and social context that highlights areas of race, gender, disability, harassment and hate speech, socio-economic rights and legal services. International human rights law and comparative law aspects are skilfully interwoven in this pioneering scholarly work. It is apparent from the way in which Professor Gutto has dealt with the subject that he has in-depth knowledge, no doubt derived in part from his direct involvement in the drafting of the equality legislation in question. He is to be complemented upon his excellent and thought-provoking contribution to a better understanding and appreciation of our new legal democratic order. – JUSTICE RH ZULMAN, SUPREME COURT OF APPEAL, BLOEMFONTEIN.
