9781588263087: Politics In Southern Africa: State And Society In Transition

The authors first introduce the themes and concepts that guide their analysis. Then, in each of eight country studies, they trace the country's political history (beginning with the colonial period) and discuss state structures, political and social actors, fundamentals of the political economy, and the major challenges faced by both state and society. The final section of the book investigates issues that transcend borders: gender and politics, the HIV/AIDS crisis, and southern Africa's role in Africa and the world.
