ledged by the Constitution and not outside or in opposition to it. For
him, [W]hat can be envisaged, then, is a broad constitutional umbrella
held aloft by a strongly entrenched system of law enforcement and
constitutional protection. In this way a multiplicity of Other regulatory
regimes grow.
Sachs was not wrong in capturing the gist of this book. The editors
themselves argue for the possibility of legitimating the other law and
for the development of a culture of legitimate coexistence between state
law and the responsible versions of the other law in South Africa. What
is important, according to the editors, is the need to regulate the other
law, either by the state or by a process of self-regulation in a way that
does not present contradictions or limitations to the culture of
democracy. And they assure the reader that the chapters in this
volume provide ample information to assess what is useful and what is
not useful about the 'other law' (12).
If you are a reader interested to know about forms of law and legal
regulations that fall outside the traditional confines of state law, this
book could offer information, some of it even grounded in empirical
research. And rest assured that the discussions would take account of the
legitimacy of the state and the parameters of the constitutional order. If
you are a reader who was initially attracted by the use of the word
other, expecting a radical questioning of current state law, interested in
getting to know more about opposition to state ordering and political
dissent on a theoretical and practical level, you will be disappointed.
