Region-building in Southern Africa: Progress, Problems and Prospects edited by Chris Saunders et al.

This volume is a product of a four-year project on โ€˜peace-building in Africaโ€™ undertaken by the Centre for Conflict Resolution (CCR) in Cape Town. Most of the chapters are based on papers presented at a policy seminar organized by CCR in Cape Town in February 2010, which explored the various processes involved in region-building in Southern Africa; from organizations and institutions to issues of regional integration and human and military security. This is not the first book to be published on region-building but it is perhaps the most wide-ranging in terms of the topics it addresses, as well as its pan-African approach.

This book is part of our Africana (ZA) Collection.

Freedom Day, 27 April by Sahm Venter.

On 27 April 1994, for the first time all South Africans of voting age were allowed to vote. This was the first time in the country โ€˜s history that everyone was treated as equal citizens. South Africans were finally free in their own country. It was only in 1994 that all South Africans were allowed to exercise their political rights. This book explains the importance of voting, the 300-year struggle for the vote in South Africa and the role voting plays in keeping a democracy alive. It also explains the peaceful negotiations that brought apartheid to an end as well as how South Africaโ€™s political system works today.

This book is part of our Africana (ZA) Collection.
