Durban, South Africa - a city of immense beauty but also a city with deep environmental scars caused by industrial giants and insensitive government. As the hosting city for the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change conference - COP 17 - Durban will be at the centre of the world's climate negotiations. This book takes the reader on a journey from Durban's apartheid roots to its somewhat jaded present, passing cultural icons and political battles narrating socio-economic and environmental conflict and the reinvention of the city's tradition of social protest.
