Celebrated as a beacon ofdemocracy and reconciliation, many people in South Africa continue to live in severepoverty, particularly in the Eastern Cape Province. Backed by the United Nations Development Programme, the Eastern Cape's provincial government consequently launched an historically ambitious programme – the Provincial Growthand Development Plan – aimed at tackling the province's poverty, unemployment andinequality over a ten-year period in a radical policy overhaul.

Drawing on the author’sfirst-hand engagement with the planning process, Development Planning inSouth Africa is an empirically rich study that utilises a strategic-relationalapproach to explore the ways in which this unprecedented challenge wasnegotiated and eventually undermined by the South African state.

The first work of its kind, the book provides anindispensable micro-level study with profound implications for how state poweris understood to be organised and expressed in state policy. Relevant beyondSouth Africa to policy implementation in both developing and developed statesglobally, the book is essential reading for students and scholars of governmentstudies, political economy, development, policy studies and social movements.
