Minorities in the Millennium: Perspectives from Botswana

Front Cover
Isaac Ncube Mazonde
Lightbooks, 2002 - Botswana - 136 pages
Of late, the demand for transparency as a fundamental feature of democracy has come to the very fore of public life in Botswana. Responding to this demand through very open argument, the contributors to this volume portray where the debate about tribes and minorities in Botswana lies, where it has come from, and where it is heading. The contributors illuminate a shift in public consciousness, and more broadly, point to the very general interest seen in both the politics of representation and the politics of recognition in this African democracy.
