Launching this weekend at Ike’s Bookshop is Chatsworth: The Making of a South African Township edited by Ashwin Desai and Goolam Vahed.

The book's 40 chapters explore the many sides of Chatsworth's history, covering aspects ranging from sport and religion to gangs and politics. 

The narrative richness of the book, its attention to detail, and sensitivity to how broader changes impacted on life in the township is enhanced with poignant photographs of the township's past, as well as an excellent contemporary photo essay.
