This book provides perspective and guidance during times of increasing moral confusion due to contending global and indigenous messages, and leadership with a lack of brave confession, and living out, of sound moral principles that may serve the common good in South Africa’s infant and fragile democracy. South Africa’s leadership from within and outside government is still faced with the consequences of the inhuman, unjust, and therefore immoral, policies of the past. At the same time, it is increasingly challenged to build and practise a shared collective morality that will restore the social fabric of society for the common good of all making a livelihood in this society. This book speaks directly to these important and crucial issues and confirms indeed that South Africa more than ever needs ethical leadership in the face of the moral challenges of her long-awaited transformation.
