The Security-Development Nexus
Expressions of Sovereignty and Securitization in Southern Africa
Lars Buur, Steffen Jensen, Finn Stepputat (eds)
The link between security and development has been rediscovered after 9/11 by a broad range of scholars. Focussing on southern Africa, The Security-Development Nexus shows that the much-debated linkage is by no means a recent invention. Rather, the security/development linkage has been an important element of the state policies of colonial as well as post-colonial regimes during the Cold War, and it seems to be prospering in new configurations under the present wave of democratic transitions.

South Africa's role in conflict resolution and peacemaking in Africa
South Africa's role in conflict resolution and peacemaking in Africa
Conference proceedings
Roger Southall (ed)
Since its transition to democracy in 1994, South Africa has become increasingly drawn into the resolution of conflicts and the promotion of peace and stability on the wider African continent. This has followed from the high reputation of its own negotiated settlement as a model for other conflict torn countries to emulate, the iconic status of Nelson Mandela as a master of reconciliation and forgiveness, and not least the sense in Pretoria that South Africa has a moral obligation to ‘repay’ Africa for the sins of apartheid and that it has some considerable capacity, military and economic, to do so.

Trade Unions and Party Politics
Trade Unions and Party Politics
Labour movements in Africa
Björn Beckman , Sakhela Buhlungu, Lloyd Sachikonye (eds)

In much of Africa, people look to trade unions for leadership, especially at times of economic downturn. Although Africa's wage-workers are relatively few in comparison to those in the informal economy, their experience of organisation and mass mobilisation and their position in the modern economy give them a strategic role in the politics of democratisation and development.

Voices of Liberation
Voices of Liberation
Volume 1: Albert Lutuli
Gerald J Pillay
The struggle to free South Africa from its apartheid shackles was long and complex. One of the many ways in which the apartheid regime maintained its stranglehold in South Africa was through controlling the freedom of speech and the flow of information, in an effort to silence the voices of those who opposed it. United by the ideals of freedom and equality, but also nuanced by a wide variety of persuasions, the ‘voices of liberation’ were many: African nationalists, communists, trade-unionists, pan-Africanists, English liberals, human rights activists, Christians, Hindus, Muslims and Jews, to name but a few.

Voices of liberation
Voices of liberation
Patrice Lumumba
Leo Zeilig
US documents released in August 2011 reveal that President Eisenhower directly ordered the assassination of Patrice Lumumba, Prime Minister of Congo. But the Americans were not alone… Six months after achieving independence from Belgium, Congo’s first legally elected Prime Minister, Patrice Lumumba, was assassinated on 17 January 1961. The effects of that attempt at annihilation, sanctioned by the United States and carried out by the Belgians, continue to reverberate throughout the continent today as the ‘scramble for Africa’ continues.
