Overview

As a post-apartheid future is constructed in South Africa and as the old political and economic barriers with the rest of the continent crumble, it is probable that there will be a sustained increase in political and economic interaction between the “hobbled leviathan” of the South and its neighbors. In this volume, contributors explore to what extent this process will enhance or constrain prospects for political and economic development in the rest of the region and the continent, discuss who are likely to be the main agents and beneficiaries of this expanded interchange, and examine the security consequences, broadly conceived, that might result.
