Morris (sociology, U. of New South Wales, Australia) and Bouillon (French Institut de Recherche pour le Developpement) compile five chapters that examine the migration of individuals from francophone African countries in the 1990s to South Africa. They address the debate around the number of these individuals, seen as "illegal" immigrants, in South Africa, in which numbers have been inflated to reinforce xenophobia; the experiences of Nigerians, Congolese, and Zaireans and why they went to South Africa, their economic contributions, and issues they face; their relationships with the local black population, with an emphasis on language problems and stereotyping; and the migration of African traders.
