"Leslie Bank's beautifully written re-study of the 'Xhosa in town' is a very powerful ethnography from post-apartheid South Africa and an important contribution to the anthropology of the city. Bank's monograph is in every way an improvement over the classic trilogy that originally inspired it."
--Professor Thomas Hylland Eriksen, University of Oslo
"A splendid work of scholarship which makes a major ethnographic contribution while advancing challenging theoretical arguments." --Jim Ferguson, Stanford University
