Dynamising Liberation Movements in Southern Africa

Quo Vadis?

edited by Siphamandla Zondi, Kgothatso B. Shai

The primary aim of this interdisciplinary book is to take stock of the state of liberation movements in Southern Africa. This aim is informed by the fact that the study of the reconciliation of the past and present politics of liberation movements can never be complete without a rigorous and systematic focus on Southern Africa and through the South[ern] angled lens. The aim of this book will be achieved by delving into the following objectives:

• Analyse the transition of liberation movements into governing parties

• Identify and tease out the common challenges and key issues plaguing liberation movements' incumbency

• Forecast the future of liberation solidarity in Southern Africa

• Showcase refreshing perspectives on the journey travelled thus far by the liberation movements

• Compare and contrast the performance of liberation movements led governments in Southern Africa

• Describe the patterns and trends of practice by Southern Africa's liberation movements

Written from a South[ern] angled lens by contributors belonging to different generations of the witnesses to the dynamisation of the liberation movements in Southern Africa and most of the analysis and documentation represented by this book about African liberation movements was done by Africans and for Africans.
