Abstract

The edited volume Eastern Europe, the Soviet Union, and Africa: New Perspectives on the Era of Decolonization, 1950s to 1990s represents a comprehensive collection of papers dealing with connections between Eastern Europe, the Soviet Union, and various state and nonstate actors in Africa from the 1960s until the 1980s. A follow-up to Southern African Liberation Movements and the Global Cold War “East,” the volume aims, according to the editors’ introduction, to reexamine recent historiographical trends, focus on the “resources” of those involved in decolonization, and explore their legacies.[1] Rooted in excellent primary resource materials, most chapters succeed in demonstrating the outcomes of these connections.
