About this product
- DescriptionWith the end of white-dominated South Africa, many observers have argued for a positive transformation of the whole of Southern Africa based upon market integration and increased cooperation among the states of the region. Poku and the contributors to this collection re-examine this optimistic scenerio, and they point to the problems of translating good intentions into actual policies. In reality, the ecomic imbalance between South Africa and its neighbors poses severe problems for the region. Far from finding a stronger ally in regional reconstruction and development, the countries in the region are finding that for many in South Africa they simply do t matter that much. The analysis points to greater polarization, which may imply greater marginalization of the poorer countries in the region. Moreover, a major widening of the gap between the richer South Africa and some or all of the weaker ecomies may lead to increased tensions and breakdown of regional relations, even to a situation detrimental to ecomic development in the region. A provocative analysis by some of the leading politico-ecomic thinkers of the region, the volume will be of great use to scholars, researchers, and policy makers involved with Southern African development.
