THE NEXT LIBERATION STRUGGLE THE NEXT LIBERATION STRUGGLE
Capitalism, Socialism, and Democracy in Southern Africa

by John S. Saul

Through some thirty years, John Saul has written about wars for the liberation of Southern Africa, and has worked with movements supporting liberation struggles.
This collection of essays brings together long perspectives on regional changes and developments which culminated in the independence of Zimbabwe and Namibia, and the overthrow of Apartheid.
Tony Blair has launched an Africa initiative that seeks to open the continent to business. Saul provides a critical assessment of what has, and hasn't, been achieved in the region. Is Africa in a Capitalist Cul-de-sac? Would a new left find a better Alternative?

The first part of the book sets out the broad themes.
Part 2 has case studies of Mozambique, Namibia, Zimbabwe, and Tanzania. The third part focuses, on South Africa, on transition and on socio-economic outcomes, (largely neo-liberal and inegalitarian). Saul's conclusions have provoked controversy in South Africa: he identifies forces for change, and suggests imperatives and implications for Africa's next liberation struggle.

"The strength of this book lies in its indictment of capitalist globalization for Africa should play its part in doing just that: stimulating theoretical and programmatic discussion" African Affairs.

John S. Saul is Professor emeritus at the leading political science department in Canada, York University, Toronto
