GDR Development Policy in Africa

Doctrine and Strategies between Illusions and Reality 1960-1990. The example (South) Africa

By Ulrich van der Heyden

This book focuses the multi-faceted and far-reaching dealings between the former German Democratic Republic (GDR) and Third World countries, including their liberation movements and development policies. For almost 40 years, the history and previously intense relationship which was maintained between the GDR and Africa has been disregarded. This situation is arguably incomprehensible as Germany's image in many Third World countries has been defined greatly by the smaller of the two Germanies, especially in South Africa.
