- Introduction: racial capitalism and settler colonialism -- South Africa and Palestine/Israel: histories and transitions -- Alexandra: the precariousness of the poor -- Bethlehem: neoliberal colonization -- A legalized mafia: security privatization in Johannesburg -- A monopoly of violence? security coordination in the West Bank -- Conclusion: neoliberal apartheid.
- "After a decade of research in the Johannesburg and Jerusalem regions, Andy Clarno presents here a detailed ethnographic study of the precariousness of the poor in Alexandra township, the dynamics of colonization and enclosure in Bethlehem, the growth of fortress suburbs and private security in Johannesburg, and the regime of security coordination between the Israeli military and the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank. The first comparative study of the changes in these two areas since the early 1990s, the book addresses the limitations of liberation in South Africa, highlights the impact of neoliberal restructuring in Palestine, and argues that a new form of neoliberal apartheid has emerged in both contexts"--Publisher's website.
