Format: Hardcover
Linda Heywood has written a very fine study of a critical region of Angola. Her particular contribution is to trace the background of the area back into the pre-colonial period and to carry the history of the Ovimbundu up to the present day, including the formation of the UNITA party and the history of Jonas Savimbi. This book should be read by anyone wanting to understand the Angolan civil war, especially as it is cool headed and impartial. Careful readers might note the extraordinary documentary material that Heywood has used, from archives all over the world in several languages. A monument to scholarship
