Global Challenges and Local Reactions: Czech Republic and South Africa

Edited by: Hana Horakova, Stephanie Rudwick

This book presents an interdisciplinary perspective on the large-scale processes of socio-economic and political change of two "young" democracies: post-apartheid South Africa and the post-socialist Czech Republic. As the political transition in both countries coincides with the intensified effects of globalization, especially with the advent of neoliberal economic ideologies and policies, the two countries exhibit a number of common features and parallels in their respective transitions and post-developments. The book's chapters describe the particular place(s) South Africa and the Czech Republic occupy in the dual processes of internationalization and globalization.
