Summary note
"In 'Wake up, this is Joburg' writer and urban planner Tanya Zack and photographer Mark Lewis tell the stories of ten ordinary, interesting, odd or outrageous denizens of Johannesburg. 'S'kop', the first book in the series, presents the butchers, traders and entrepreneurs who work in the basement of the abandoned and derelict Kazerne taxi rank, demolished in 2013. 'S'kop' is short for 'isiKop', 'the head', in a hybrid Zulu/Afrikaans slang. Text in English and Zulu." -- Clarkes Bookshop website : http://www.clarkesbooks.co.za/artbooks/browse/64/2014-35
