Johannesburg: The Making and Shaping of the City

Front Cover
University of South Africa Press, 2004 - Social Science - 373 pages
Much has been written on various aspects of life and lifestyles in Johannesburg, covering the period from 1886 to 2003. Yet until now no single text has attempted to bring the available material together to reveal the unfolding geography of the city, from its days as a mining camp to its present position as premier metropolis of the African continent. This book draws together a wide range of material to fill this niche.

This is a great book. Brilliant maps on the social, racial and religious separation in Johannesburg. However, the index is inaccurate, which is very frustrating.
