Security and Politics in South Africa: The Regional Dimension

By Peter Vale | Go to book overview

About the Book

In this analysis of South Africa's postapartheid security system, Peter Vale moves beyond a realist discussion of interacting states to examine southern Africa as an integrated whole.

Vale argues that, despite South Africa's manipulation of state structures and elites in the region for its own ends, the suffering endured under the apartheid regime drew the region together at the popular level; and economic factors, such as the use of migrant labor, reinforced the process of integration. Exploring how the region is changing today—as transnational solidarity and a single regional economy remove the distinctions between national and international politics—he asks whether South African domination can finally be overcome and considers what sort of cosmopolitan political arrangement will be appropriate for southern Africa in the new century.

Peter Vale holds the Nelson Mandela Chair in Politics at Rhodes University in Grahamstown, South Africa. He has served as deputy vice-chancellor of the University of the Western Cape, South Africa, where he was senior professor of government, professor of social theory, and sometime professor of southern African studies. He has also been a fellow of the International Center for Advanced Studies at New York University. An influential commentator on foreign policy, he has also contributed to such journals as International Affairs, Foreign Affairs, Survival, and Alterna-tives. During South Africa's transition to democracy he served on the African National Congress's foreign policy advisory group. He is coeditor of Bridges to the Future: Prospects for Peace and Security in Southern Africa, Out of Conflict: From War to Peace in Africa, and Theory, Change, and Southern Africa's Future.
