Towards a New Deal
South Africa’s past has been shaped by one of the oldest political alliances in southern Africa, that between the African National Congress and the South African Communist Party. Davies offers an insider account on the evolution of trade and economic policy in South Africa. Beginning in the early 1970s up to now, Davies gives insight into the inner workings of the government. He concludes with a chapter on the ‘new dawn’ focusing primarily on the impacts of COVID-19 and the challenging period that lies ahead. Told with intriguing anecdotes and Davies’ personal and humanising history of activism and time spent in exile, this memoir presents a strong case for economic change and is essential reading to grasp the political and economic dynamics of the moment.
