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) Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

About the Author:

Peter Vale is senior professor of government and professor of social theory at the University of the Western Cape. An influential commentator on foreign policy and contributor to such journals as International Affairs, Survival, Foreign Affairs, and Alternatives, he served as a member of the ANC's foreign policy advisory group during South Africa's transition to democracy. He is coeditor of Bridges to the Future: Prospects for Peace and Security in Southern Africa, Out of Conflict: From War to Peace in Africa, and Theory, Change and Southern Africa's Future.

Review:

"A challenging, stimulating, and important work, incorporating a profound critique of South African approaches to security-making both before and after the demise of apartheid.... Vale offers some intriguing pointers toward a different and more hopeful vision of community and security in the region." - David Black, Dalhousie University

Book Description Lynne Rienner Publishers Inc, United States, 2002. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In this analysis of South Africa s postapartheid security system, Peter Vale moves beyond a realist discussion of interacting states to examine southern Africa as an integrated whole. Vale argues that, despite South Africa s manipulation of state structures and elites in the region for its own ends, the suffering endured under the apartheid regime drew the region together at the popular level; and economic factors, such as the use of migrant labor, reinforced the process of integration. Exploring how the region is changing today - as transnational solidarity and a single regional economy remove the distinctions between national and international politics - he asks whether South African domination can finally be overcome and considers what sort of cosmopolitan political arrangement will be appropriate for southern Africa in the new century.
