Description

Tracing the expansion of South African business into other areas of Africa in the years after apartheid, Richard A. Schroeder explores why South Africans have not always made themselves welcome guests abroad. By looking at investments in Tanzania, a frontline state in the fight for liberation, Schroeder focuses on the encounter between white South Africans and Tanzanians and the cultural, social, and economic controversies that have emerged as South African firms assume control of local assets. Africa after Apartheid affords a penetrating look at the unexpected results of the expansion of African business opportunities following the demise of apartheid.show more

Review quote

The story of post-apartheid South Africa's northward expansion warrants further scholarly attention, and this eminently readable book provides an important national case study on which others will build. * Journal of Modern African Studies * This is a skilfully interdisciplinary book. Schroeder burrows deep into political economy, but is equally comfortable interpreting symbolism, such as the masculinist imagery and 'neocolonial chic' . . . of South African investment advertisements. Throughout the book we see keen ethnographic attention to affect, especially the confusion, resentment, and bitterness felt by Tanzanians as the waters of racial inequity rise. * African Affairs * [This] book addresses economic, geographic, political, and historical issues and would make an excellent tool for teaching about contemporary Africa and the social impact of neoliberal reform policies. * Journal of African History *show more
