This book assistance spatial planning in the second-tier cities of the country. Secondary cities are vital as they perform essential regional, and in some cases, global economic roles and help to distribute the population of the country more evenly across its surface. This book presents ten case studies of spatial planning and spatial transformation in secondary cities of South Africa. This book frames these case studies against complexity theory and suggest that the post-apartheid response to a apartheid planning represents a linear deviation from history.
