Johannesburg: a city of thieves and dreamers, home to more than four million inhabitants spread out over an area larger than greater London... An engaging and authoritative history that follows the story of the city through its spaces and communities - from the city centre to Joburg's expanding suburbs.

With dedicated chapters about Lenasia, Alexandra and the Southern Suburbs - together with Soweto, the CBD, Hillbrow, the far north and the central suburbs - it offers an inclusive history of Joburg, written by contemporary journalists and academics and featuring a selection of songs, poems and expert articles that give voice to the city's diverse peoples and reflect its shifting social landscapes.

The Joburg Book also includes hundreds of historical photos, fifteen reference maps, recommended itineraries and places of interest in and around the city, together with contact numbers and web addresses. This updated edition for 2014 has updates of new spaces, such as Constitution Hill and the Gautrain, as well as new tours and excursions.
