In South Africa and the Logic of Regional Cooperation, James J. Hentz addresses changes in South Africa’s strategies for regional cooperation and economic development since its transition from apartheid to democracy. Hentz focuses on why the new South African government continues to make regional cooperation a priority and what methods this dominant state uses to pursue its neighborly goals. While providing a synthetic overview of the history of regional cooperation in southern Africa, Hentz considers the logic of cooperation more generally. An extensive discussion of South African politics provides the context for Hentz’s exploration of the more widely felt effects of domestic change. Readers interested in the international organization of the politics and economy of southern Africa will find thought-provoking material in this important book.

About the Author:

James J. Hentz, Associate Professor of International Studies at the Virginia Military Institute, is co-editor (with Morten Boas) of New and Critical Security and Regionalism: Beyond the Nation State.

Review:

"This book is a well—researched, in—depth study of the conditions through which the post—apartheid South African state has been defining and assuming its Southern Africa economic policy of regional integration and economic cooperation, in general and in particular as an integral member of the Southern African Development Community (SADC). James Hentz, an associate professor of international studies at the Virginia Military Institute, looks at the ways, means, and dynamics of how the most important South African social and political actors, including the African National Congress (ANC), the still—powerful Afrikaans bureaucracy of the old apartheid state, what he calls big capital, organized labor, and other old and new social movements compete and interact among themselves and in relation to the state to impose their interests, objectives, ideology, and institutions on the country's regional policy. The book is also an important contribution to understanding, over and above the rhetoric of public political discourses, the local conditions, the regional and global limitations, the manipulations, and the compromises through which the ANC is charting and implementing, often not without confusion, South African policies today... Hentz's book is an important, multifaceted contribution to the understanding of today's political realities in South Africa within the interrelated contexts of both the Southern Africa region and the neo—liberalized, structurally adjusted world economy." —SAfrica October, 2006
