From Cape to Congo: Southern Africa’s Evolving Security Challenges

Mwesiga Baregu and Christopher Landsberg, eds. (Lynne Rienner, 2003)

 

 

From the ongoing war in Angola, to sporadic instability in Zimbabwe and Lesotho, to the conflict in the Congo, to issues of land reform and the ravages of AIDS, Southern Africa faces varied and complex threats to its peace and security. The authors of the volume assess the region’s major security challenges, as well as the roles of local, regional, and external actors managing them. Their theoretically informed – but practical – approach encompasses the political, economic, and military arenas.
