Overview

In this analysis of South Africa's post-apartheid security system, the author moves beyond a discussion of different states to examine southern Africa as an integrated whole. Vale, who holds the Nelson Mandela Chair in Politics at Rhodes University in South Africa, argues that, despite South Africa's manipulation of state structures and elites in the region for its own ends, the apartheid regime drew the region together at the popular level and that economic factors, such as the use of migrant labor, reinforced the process of integration. He explores how the region is changing today and considers what sort of political arrangements lie in southern Africa's future. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
