Two longtime observers of Mozambique (he is the foremost American expert on that country) depict the evolution of the former Portuguese colony through resistance and revolution into the present-day beleagured socialist state. Highly sympathetic to the aims of the ruling party, the authors eschew rhetoric in favor of a very useful collation of information on its economic programs and political directions. Completed a year ago, some of the analysis has been overtaken by the recent broad escalation of MNR subversion.
