This vast indictment of South Africa's war against its neighbors goes over a fair amount of familiar territory, but is useful for its exhaustive assemblage of information, much of it illuminating. Best are essays laying out the structure of destabilization already in place in Namibia and on the regional economic issues created by South African subversion and by sanctions; other chapters, which screen out all negatives pertaining to South Africa's adversaries, are less satisfying.
