What is the prospect for conflict resolution and peace in Southern Africa, and the region's role toward trouble spots to its north? What should America's Africa policy be?

Arthur Mutambara and David Coltart look at the currents that are defining and shaping Southern Africa today — and the ideologies and cultural trends that are influencing Africa's political dynamics.
