by John S. Saul
The successful struggle against white minority rule in Southern Africa, believes Saul (emeritus, political science, York U., UK), marks the beginnings of a second liberation struggle against the global structures and economic elites that have inherited much of the power and privileges of the old colonial and Apartheid orders. In a series of 12 essays written over the past decade, he considers issues of capitalism, socialism, and democracy, presenting case studies of Mozambique, Namibia, Zimbabwe, and Tanzania, before dealing with multiple aspects of recent transition in South Africa.
