Library Highlight: Southern African liberation struggles : contemporaneous documents, 1960-1994

The Southern African Development Community (SADC) in 2004 decided to document the Southern African liberation struggles and to publish the results in a series of books. In 2015 the 9-volume work appeared, describing the liberation wars in Angola, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa and Zimbabwe, and the experiences in frontline states Botswana, Tanzania and Zambia and in the ‘extension countries’ Lesotho, Malawi and Swaziland. Historical chapters are followed by personal stories of liberation fighters, such as Saara Kuugongelwa, Namibia's current Prime Minister. The books are the subject of our latest Library Highlight.
