The first democratic elections were held in South Africa in 1994, thus
ending an era of white domination.  The country of South Africa and its
neighbors - Mozambique, Namibia, Angola, and Zimbabwe - are still grappling
with the economic and social scars from the colonial past, although there is
also an air of optimism.  This course will look at the history of the region
over the past three centuries with emphasis on the economic and social
history of African societies, their relations with each other, resistance
and accommodation to white rule, industrialization, urbanization, and the
struggle for liberation.  Readings will include perspectives from various
viewpoints, and of individuals such as Nelson Mandela.  There will be three
exams and a term paper.
