Mozambique: The Troubled Transition: From Socialist Construction to Free Market Capitalism

This is an account and analysis of the history of Mozambique. The book looks at what the future held for the people of Mozambique following the end of the civil war, and the ANC's rise to power in South Africa. It explains how, when it began, the Frelimo liberation movement in Mozambique was intent on meeting the people's needs by building socialism. The authors look at how the same movement underwent many changes, eventually trying to rebuild a war-ravaged economy by means of marke t capitalism.
