Africa after Apartheid

South Africa, Race, and Nation in Tanzania

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.

Reviews

"Richard A. Schroeder engages a vitally important topic in a wholly original way. His work is of enormous interest and constitutes a significant contribution to our understanding of a major transformation underway on the African continent."—Gillian Hart, University of California, Berkeley

"An engrossing and self-reflexive account of the impacts—for both hosts and visitors—of South African whites in Tanzania in the post-apartheid era. Schroeder details the fascinating and ironic juxtaposition of white South African investors within a leading polity at the forefront of the fight to end the apartheid system whose demise the investors fled. Informed by a treasure trove of ethnographic material that attends to the diverse views of both Tanzanian and South African informants and a broad and deep reading of the relevant literatures in Tanzanian and southern African studies, Schroeder has produced an exceptional book of great value for an interdisciplinary African studies audience. A wider group of scholars in fields from anthropology to development studies will find much to ponder and to utilize in this book, one of the finest examples of truly regional contempoary geography yet produced in African research."—Garth Myers, University of Kansas

"[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

"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
