Description: Confronting Leviathan describes Mozambique's attempt to construct a socialist society in one African country on the back of an anti-colonial struggle for national independence. In explaining the failure of this effort the authors suggest reasons why the socialist vision of the ruling party, Frelimo, lacked resonance with Mozambican society. They also document in detail South Africa's attempts to destabilize the country even to the extent of sponsoring the Renamo insurgents.

The dynamics of that insurgency and its roots in Mozambican society are examined as well as the more recent attempts to construct a liberal capitalist society.

"This excellent book will provide an important contribution to understanding the last twenty years in Mozambique. It thoughtful and reflective as well as being soundly researched". -- Dr. Malyn Newitt
