Abstract:This book foregrounds emerging and different perspectives on the centenary of South Africa's ANC which was celebrated in February 2012. It tackles the following questions: what traits in the ANC's genetic code have kept it alive for one hundred years? Is the ANC on course to meeting its historical mission of building an equitable, non-racial, non-sexist and socially-democratic society as articulated in the Africans' Claims, the Freedom Charter and the Strategy of Tactics documents? Would the ANC continue to retain relevance for a bicentenary especially as it now contends with new internal and external contradictions in an increasingly unequal society?
