This guest editorial highlights the recent bold focus of South African human geographers on the 'unsocial' geography of apartheid. Describes the threat being posed to this thrust by extensive legislation surrounding the censorship of literature. For example, Richhard Peet's collection 'Radical geography: alternative viewpoints on social issues' (1977) was the first geographical text to be declared 'undesirable'. There is constant scrutiny of humanist inspired enquiries into the experiential conditions of the underprivileged, and the bleakness of living in the urban Black townships.-A.F.Pitty
