Friend or Foe? Dominant party systems in southern Africa: Insights from the developing world by Nicola de Jager

Within southern Africa, there has been a steady increase in the number of dominant party systems ??" systems where one party dominates over a prolonged period in an ostensibly democratic system with regular elections and multiple parties participating. This party system has replaced the one-party system that dominated Africa??s political landscape after the first wave of liberations in the 1950s and 1960s. Friend or foe? Dominant party systems in southern Africa: Insights from the developing world seeks to understand this trend and its implications for southern Africa??s democracies by comparing such systems in southern Africa with others in the developing world (such as Mexico, India, South Korea and Taiwan). In particular, the case of Zimbabwe stands out as a concerning example of the direction a dominant party can take: regression into authoritarianism. Mexico, India, South Korea and Taiwan present alternative routes for the dominant party system. The salient question posed by this book is: Which route are Botswana, Namibia and South Africa taking? It answers by drawing conclusions to determine whether these countries are moving towards liberal democracy, authoritarianism or a road in between.
