Abstract:This paper analyses the electronically searchable, themed register of Cape Town (South Africa) research (G.H. Pirie, 2004), which lists over one thousand books, journal articles, and university research theses and dissertations produced in the years of political transformation between 1990 and 2004. It focuses on what the bibliographic record reveals about the (changing) nature of urban research in Cape Town. It looks at research types, research bases, research authorship, research themes, research phases, and periods and places researched. Bibliogr. [ASC Leiden abstract]
