This ground breaking new work draws together a cross-section of
South African scholars to provide a lively and comprehensive review
of the under-researched area of heritage practice following the
introduction of the National Heritage Resources Act. Looking at the
daily heritage debates, from naming streets to projects such as the
Gateway to Robben Island, Desire Lines addresses the innovative
strategies that have emerged in the practice of defining,
identifying and developing heritage sites. In a unique
multi-disciplinary approach, contributions are featured from a
broad spectrum of fields, including the built environment and
public culture and education. Showcasing work from tour operators
and museum curators alongside that of university-based scholars,
this book is a comprehensive and singularly authoritative volume
that charts the development of new and emergent public cultures in
post-apartheid South Africa through the making and unmaking of its
urban spaces. This pioneering collection of essays and case studies
is an indispensable guide for those working within or studying
