- "Author Janice Love demonstrates the complex realities of how local and global politics are intimately interwoven, sometimes inextricably so, specifically in southern Africa. Like many other regions, such linkages in southern Africa have existed for decades, if not centuries. Yet, the current era is different from previous times when human communities found themselves closely intertwined. Love examines changes in military, political, and economic globalizations in recent decades. She weaves history and data from all ten South African countries into the analysis, as well as information on international organizations and transnational advocacy networks related to Southern Africa. Students of international relations, comparative politics, and African studies will find the region's experience instructive in understanding larger trends in the world. Students particularly interested in Africa will gain insight not only about this region but also its significance for the whole continent." --Book Jacket.
