Front Cover
Mwesiga Laurent Baregu, Chris Landsberg
Lynne Rienner Publishers, 2003 - Political Science - 403 pages
From the ongoing war in Angola, to sporadic instability in Zimbabwe and Lesotho, to the conflict in 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 From Cape to Congo assess the region's major security challenges, as well as the roles of local, regional, and external actors in managing them. Their theoretically informed - but practical - approach encompasses the political, economic, and military arenas.
