Abstract:In the 1970s superpower confrontation and friction moved to the Third World and Southern Africa became one of the cauldrons of its struggle. This book in a series on Cold War studies contains ten articles about its effects in Southern Africa. The chapters have been organized broadly thematically, to look at white minority nationalism and the Cold War, and black liberation and the Cold War. After an introduction by Sue Onslow, the chapters are: The Cold War in Southern Africa: white power, black nationalism and external intervention (Sue Onslow); Racism, the Cold War and South Africa's regional security strategies 1948-1990 (John Daniel); The USA and apartheid South Africa's nuclear aspirations, 1949-1980 (Anna-Mart van Wyk); The impact of anti-communism on white Rhodesian political culture, c. 1920s-1980 (Donal Lowry); The South African factor in Zimbabwe's transition to independence (Sue Onslow); Non-alignment on the racial frontier: Zambia and the USA, 1964-1968 (Andy DeRoche); Unsung heroes: the Soviet military and the liberation of Southern Africa (Vladimir Shubin); Terrorists or freedom fighters?
