Twenty years on from the fall of apartheid in South Africa, veteran analyst and activist John S. Saul explores the liberation struggle, placing it in a regional and global context. Saul looks at how initial optimism has given way to a sense of crisis following soaring inequality levels and the massacre of workers at Marikana. With chapters on South Africa, Tanzania, and Mozambique, Saul investigates the reality of southern Africa?s post-?liberation? plight, drawing on the insights of Frantz Fanon and Amilcar Cabral, and assessing claims that a new ?precariat? has emerged. Saul examines the ongoing ?rebellion of the poor,? which has shaken the region and may signal the possibility of a new and more hopeful future.
