This book uses oral history methodology to record stories of people who experienced the brunt of racist forced removals in the city of Cape Town, South Africa. Through life stories and community case studies, it traces the human impact of this disruptive, often violent feature of apartheid's social engineering. The impact of displacement is not simply the product of a racist and ethnocentric vision, but also the myriad of experiences of place, people, and communities, which are sustained in the present through remembering and imagining.
