Further Considerations on the MPLA & Angola

Further Considerations on the MPLA and Angola
Vol.7 No.19 (Winter 1980), pp74-76
Paul Fauvet's and Basil Davidson's comments in Review No.15/16 are both too polemical and defensive really to advance the debate on the nature of the Angolan regime. (My own view of the literature on Angola in the 1970s is about to come out in the Journal of Southern African Studies, but I would like rapidly to take up the main points raised by Fauvet and Davidson).
