Conflicting Missions: Havana, Washington, Pretoria by Piero Gleijeses
This is a compelling and dramatic account of Cuban policy in Africa
and of its escalating clash with US policy and later its direct military clashes
with the South African Defence Force in Angola. It is the other side of
a conflict that South Africans have not been told about until now.
Piero Gleijeses' Conflicting Missions is the 2003 winner of the prestigious
Ferrell Prize of the Society of Historians of American Foreign Relations.
