Abstract:This article is concerned with situating the con-temporary crises whirling around Zambia in the context of both her past and future in the world system and her own distintive political economy. The essay also attempts to raise somewhat broader existential and epistemological questions by examining alternative development strategies and modes of analysis, especially as these relate to the foreign policies of African states. So in addition to analyzing the particular features of the Zambian case, it treats more general issues of theory and strategy: State capitalism: reorganization without redistribution - State capitalism: class formation and reconsideration - Debate over foreign policy and development strategy - Alternative explanations for foreign policy - The future of Zambia.
