about this item

This volume compiles chapters for 2004 through 2013 on Mozambique previously published as part of the Africa Yearbook. Politics, Economy and Society South of the Sahara. A scholar of economic development, Hanlon explains that Mozambique has remained one of the poorest countries in the world, but the discovery of huge gas fields could bring changes by the middle 2020s. During the period considered here, he says, donors increasingly objected to corruption while government was angered by donor impositions and took an increasingly autonomous line. The former liberation movement Frelimo remains the predominant party and has won all national elections, while two presidents have stepped down after two terms. A younger and better educated generation that remembers neither the liberation struggle nor the 1982-92 civil war is beginning to challenge the established leadership, he concludes.
