About this book

This is an account and analysis of the recent history of Mozambique. This book also looks at what the future holds for the people of Mozambique now that the civil war has ended and the ANC have come to power in South Africa. 20 years ago the Frelimo liberation movement came to power in Mozambique, intent on meeting the people's needs by building socialism. Now, the same movement, albeit much changed, is trying to rebuild a war-ravaged economy by means of market capitalism.


Colonial legacy - from shop-keeper colonialism to nation state builder; the international setting and regional constraints; the turning point- vision and relaity; external and internal factors in interaction; the end of global bipolarity and the price for new alliances; stabilization and adjustment; the impact of international aid; state and market in distortion; democracy and civil society; transition in turmoil; searching for a way out.
