After decades of economic decline and potential instability, the Southern African region has engaged in a process of rapid and far-reaching political and economic changes. This development has been reinforced by South Africa's transition from apartheid, a transition which has created optimistic expectations not only for that country but also for the southern African regions as a whole. This book brings together some of the best-known, most highly-regarded academics in the field to present a timely and comprehensive review of the prospects for economic integration and development in Southern Africa, and to analyse alternative strategies and policies for the future. The volume is divided into three parts. The first section discusses economic policy in contemporary South Africa, and focuses on the many and diverse problems facing the new government. Part two examines the issues of regional integration and structural adjustment that have been promoted simultaneously as two separate and complementary facets of the revival and acceleration of development. Papers in this section also explore labour market issues and the dynamic role of small enterprises in the development of Southern Africa. The third part of the volume presents in-depth country specific studies of Botswana, Lesotho, Mauritius, Mozambique and Tanzania, and discusses the experience of each country in pursuing particular development strategies. This volume is a valuable and topical study which offers a comprehensive and much-needed analytical overview of the extraordinary challenges now facing the region. It has wide appeal to academics and policy makers.
