Mozambique: From Colonialism to Revolution, 1900-1982
Mozambique: From Colonialism to Revolution, 1900-1982
By Allen Isaacman and Barbara Isaacman
Westview Press, 1983, 235 pp.

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.
