Historical Dictionary of Mozambique

Overview

A Portuguese colony since 1498, Mozambique became independent on June 25, 1975, following a ten-year war of liberation. The new nation remained relatively obscure for most scholars, and Azevedo's work fills a vacuum in the sources, tracing the development of modern Mozambique from earliest times to the present and treating the Africans not as passive receptors but as actors in their land during both the pre-colonial and the colonial periods.

Overview

A Portuguese colony since 1498, Mozambique became independent on June 25, 1975, following a ten-year war of liberation. The new nation remained relatively obscure for most scholars, and Azevedo's work fills a vacuum in the sources, tracing the development of modern Mozambique from earliest times to the present and treating the Africans not as passive receptors but as actors in their land during both the pre-colonial and the colonial periods. Such topics as African resistance to colonialism, economic conditions, the Portuguese policy of assimilation, FRELIMO, RENAMO, forced labor, and relations with South Africa are extensively covered by the author, a Mozambican, with insights that only one who lived under Portuguese colonialism can provide.

Author Biography: Mario J. Azevedo (BA, European history, Catholic University; MA, European history, American; PhD, African history, Duke) was born and educated in Mozambique and came to the U.S. as a political refugee in 1965. Chairman, Dept. of Afro-American and African Studies and Frank Porter Graham Professor, University of North Carolina, Charlotte, he is well-known as the author of several books and numerous articles on former French Equatorial Africa and Southern Africa. He has also been on the Board of Directors of the African Studies Association.

...this 2nd edition far outstrips its predecessor in range and detail. As well, there is much more cross-referencing and many longer entries, and it comes with the standard ensemble of acronym lists, one small-scale map, a chronology of modern political events, a substantial introduction and bibliography, and several statistical appendixes.
