    Abstract

    SAUNDERS, Christopher. The South Africa-Angola talks, 1976-1984: A little-known Cold War thread. Kronos [online]. 2011, vol.37, n.1, pp. 104-119. ISSN 0259-0190.

    That South Africa invaded Angola in 1975, in an abortive attempt to prevent a Marxist government coming to power there, and that the South African Defence Force then repeatedly attacked Angola from 1978, is relatively well known. That representatives of the South African and Angolan governments met on many occasions from 1976 is a largely untold story. This article uses documentation from the archives of the Department of International Relations and Cooperation, along with other sources, to analyse these talks and the Cold War context in which they took place.
