9780300184280: Southern Africa: Old Treacheries and New Deceits

In this timely and essential book, Stephen Chan explores the political landscape of southern Africa, examining how it's poised to change over the next years and what the repercussions are likely to be across the continent. He focuses on three countries in particular: South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Zambia, all of which have remained interconnected since the end of colonial rule and the overthrow of apartheid.

One of the key themes in the book is the relationship between South Africa and Zimbabwe, and Chan sheds new light on the shared intellectual capacities and interests of the two countries' respective presidents, Jacob Zuma and Robert Mugabe. Along the way, the personalities and abilities of key players, such as Morgan Tsvangirai, the prime minister of Zimbabwe, and former South African president Thabo Mbeki, emerge in honest and sometimes surprising detail.

In Southern Africa, Chan draws on three decades of experience to provide the definitive inside guide to this complex region and offer insight on how the near future is likely to be a litmus test not just for this trio of countries but for all of Africa.

Review:

“[An] always readable account . . . Chan is fascinated by the personal foibles of the region’s longstanding leaders and has an eye for telling details.”—Nicolas van de Walle, Foreign Affairs (Nicolas van de Walle Foreign Affairs)

"History and humanity interact vividly in Chan’s easy-to-read brand of academic journalism . . . insightful and incisive."—J. P. Smaldone, Choice (J. P. Smaldone Choice)

"[A] detailed and morally nuanced study."—Publishers Weekly (Publishers Weekly)

”Chan has the novelist’s eye and touch; that is what makes this book so readable. But it is also based on very sound scholarship....This is the work of an Africanist who loves and respects Africa, its people and culture....Chan tells it as it is, with pace, power and persuasion.... [The] best written – book about southern African politics in the last few decades.”—Professor Paul Moorcraft, RUSI Journal (Professor Paul Moorcraft RUSI Journal 2011-04-01)
