Title:Inequalities and interdependence in Africa and Latin America: Sub-imperialism and semi-industrialism in the semi-periphery
Author:Shaw, Timothy M.ISNI
Periodical:Cultures et développement
Geographic terms:Africa
South America
Subjects:economic dependence
Abstract:This paper is concerned with the impact of the cluster of middle powers on both Africa and Latin America. It is intended to be one marginal contribution to conceptual and theoretical development of the dependence and related theories. The first part is directly concerned with the three central concepts semi-periphery, sub-imperialism and semi-industrialism and draw examples of each from both Africa and Latin America. The second part is an empirical overview of three contemporary regional conflicts in Africa (Horn of Africa, Shaba, Southern Africa), illustrating how sub-imperial powers have come to serve as the cores of coalitions in such regional struggles. In the third part of the paper a select pair of linkages between sub-imperial states (South Africa-Brazil, South Africa-Israel) are examined, again to provide some empirical support for the assertion that such states have common interests and expanding interactions amongst themselves.
