Abstract:This special issue of the Journal of Southern African Studies brings together two interconnected sets of literature: those concerned with the history of South Africa's ANC and those concerned with international solidarity with the ANC's liberation struggles. The transnational spread of the liberation movements from the 1960s, and the border-crossing peripatetic lifestyle of liberation and solidarity activists make it appropriate to consider the histories of liberation movements and international solidarity in a single frame, since it was in the situation of exile that they interacted with, and influenced, one another. Following the introductory paper by Hilary Sapire, five papers look at the ANC between 1961 and 1994; five address the history of international solidarity (particularly British) with the South African liberation movement; one examines British solidarity with the struggle in Namibia; and one tackles South Africa's policy towards Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) during the period of the Internal Settlement.
