Book Launch & Reception for two new books related to Angola:

National Liberation in Post-Colonial Southern Africa by Christian Williams and
Political Identity and Conflict in Central Angola
by Justin Pearce

In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Stanford University Center for African Studies and the Four Decades of Angolan Independence Geballe Workshop, Stanford University Libraries is hosting a book launch of two new books: one on politcal history in central Angola from 1975-2002; and the other, an ethnography of members of the Namibian liberation movement, SWAPO (South West African People's Organization), many of whom were exiles in Angola, Zambia and Tanzania during the liberation struggles in Southern Africa.
