Abstract:Most attempts to explain the slowness and perversity of change on Southern Africa are deficient because not enough attention is paid to regional interactions; This review article wants to correct the over-concentration on the national or global relations of this international sub-system by the adoption of an intermediate level of analysis, because it is impossible to understand the coexistence of confrontation and co-operation in Southern Africa without an examination of the patterns of dependence and interdependence among its black- and white-ruled states. Sections: Southern Africa as an international region - Towards which new order? - The relevance of the Southern Africa case - The politics of white control: growth without integration - Regime violence and black liberation - The political economy of nationalism: regional conflict and integration in Southern Africa - The response of the black states to dialogue and dependence - The future of futures for Soutern Africa - Towards a new conceptual framework.
