War and Peace in Southern Africa: Crime, Drugs, Armies, and Trade

Synopsis

"This timely book analyzes the baleful wave of crime in which South Africa and its neighbors are now engulfed. It provides new perspectives and policy recommendations on issues including carjacking and the limited police response; the quality and quantity of the region's drug problem and where the drugs originate; the arms trade and how to stop it; the South African military mind; and southern African peacekeeping. The book also addresses South Africa's illegal immigration problem and how the flood of aliens can be turned back, and the relationship between low economic growth and regional economic instability, a lack of openness to trade, and poor managerial responses."
