Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This book examines the modern history of southern Africa with one eye on the geopolitical and economic concerns of the West. Only the first two chapters survey the period up to 1940, leaving 80 percent for recent events. Two illustrative chapters are ``The Limits of Cold War Liberalism: colonial southern Africa in the Sixties'' and ``Letting Time Run Out: the shape of engagement in the Reagan era.'' While filled with topics such as corporate interests, multinationals, and sanctions, this is not a neo-Marxian analysis. Well researched and soberly reflective, typical of Minter's scholarly background, this concludes by exhorting the West to abandon its shortsighted alliance with South Africa. Recommended for all university libraries. John Grotpeter, Political Science Dept., St. Louis Coll. of Pharmacy
