"The crisis in Southern Africa is intertwined with the struggle for world peace and human decency. In the face of increased South African repression, the international community has the obligation and capacity to forge true democracy through dialog and conciliation. To bring about change, we must understand the complexities of the situation. Ann Seidman's extensive new study provides readers this essential understanding. It is must reading for those who seek to effectively support the struggle for the liberation of Black south Africa."
-Congressman Ronald B. Dellums
"Walter Rodney's HOW EUROPE UNDERDEVELOPED AFRICA gave us a thoughtful analysis of the prooblems faced by people in Africa who are trying to rid thenselves of the remnants of colonialism. Ann Seidman's book is a basic primer which analyzes the impact of neocolonialism. Policymakers and legislators in Congress need to read more of this kind of analysis. The information on the roles of multinationals and their self-justification of the greed that perpetuates poverty and violence in the region is especially useful."
-Mel King (Department of Urban Studies and Planning, MIT)
"This study is non-apologetic for its common-sensical and challenging conclusions drawn from thorough-going and sensitive analysisi of every aspect of the contemporary Southern African situation. The study is based on extensive research and experience and is presented in clear, straightforward prose. The implications for regional peace, progress and development that the study reveals from its analysisi of internal trends and external involvement are important for us all."
