520 8  While much has been written on post-apartheid social 
       movements in South Africa, most discussion centers on 
       ideal forms of movements, disregarding the reality and 
       agency of the activists themselves. In Living Politics, 
       Kerry Ryan Chance radically flips the conversation by 
       focusing on the actual language and humanity of post-
       apartheid activists rather than the external, idealistic 
       commentary of old. Tracking everyday practices and 
       interactions between poor residents and state agents in 
       South Africa's shack settlements, Chance investigates the 
       rise of nationwide protests since the late 1990s. Based on
       ethnography in Durban, Cape Town, and Johannesburg, the 
       book analyzes the criminalization of popular forms of 
       politics that were foundational to South Africa's 
       celebrated democratic transition. Chance argues that we 
       can best grasp the increasingly murky line between "the 
       criminal" and "the political" with a "politics of living" 
       that casts slum and state in opposition to one another. 
       Living Politics shows us how legitimate domains of 
       politics are redefined, how state sovereignty is forcibly 
       enacted, and how the production of new citizen identities 
       crystallize at the intersections of race, gender, and
