    Abstract

    LIEBENBERG, Ian. (Trans-) Borders, tongues, book and blood reflections. Tydskr. letterkd. [online]. 2010, vol.47, n.1, pp. 0-0. ISSN 0041-476X.

    This contribution surveys recent works on the Border War /Angolan War (1960-1990). It contrasts writings by political theorists, media analysts and literary scholars with works written by soldiers who fought in the war and recollections by embedded journalists. The article's main focus is on Gary Baines and Peter Vale's collection of essays entitled Beyond the Border War: New Perspectives on Southern Africa's Late Cold War Conflicts (Unisa Press, 2008).

    Keywords : Angola; border literature; bush war; civil war (Southern Africa); conflict; military destabilisation; Namibia.
