Southern Africa Since the Portuguese Coup

Southern Africa Since the Portuguese Coup

Edited by John Seiler

Westview Press, 1980, 252 pp.

Although somewhat dated (the book was written in 1979, before the settlement in Zimbabwe), the book offers a good overview, liberally studded with useful historical anecdotes. Particularly distinguished are the contributions by Seiler and Gerhard Tötemeyer on Namibia, Donald Baker on white reactions to regional events since 1974, Crawford Young on Zaïre's southern Africa policy, and Keith Middlemas on Mozambique.
