About this book

This book provides readers with the first comprehensive study of South Africa’s foreign policy conducted in a multilateral setting, by placing on record over 1000 of South Africa’s votes at the United Nations over a 20 year period. The study investigates consistency in terms of South Africa’s declared foreign policy and its actual voting practices at the United Nations.

Democratic South Africa’s Foreign Policy: Voting Behaviour in the United Nations offers a compendium of South Africa’s United Nations behaviour during a poignant transitional period in the country’s recent history. In setting out a framework for analysing the conduct of other countries’ voting behaviour in parallel with this study, it can be used to advance the field as a useful comparative tool. This book presents the material needed for International Relations scholars and practitioners in the field to make a reasoned and reflective assessment of this dimension of South Africa’s foreign policy.

Reviews

“This volume is a pioneering study on an important subject. The author has provided an analysis which combines detailed statistical material with a well-reasoned empirical interpretation of South Africa’s voting record at the United Nations. It will prove immensely valuable for both students and scholars working in this field.” (Professor J. Spence OBE FKC, Kings College London, UK)

“Excellently written, yet with an impressive simplicity, dense with powerful narratives, backed up by detail and facts, Graham’s book is bound to unearth fresh ground, and will no doubt come to influence the policy and scholarly discourse on the liberated Republic’s post-isolation foreign policy and international relations trajectory. This should become prescribed reading for undergraduate and post-graduate students of South Africa’s international relations.” (Professor Chris Landsberg, University of Johannesburg, South Africa)
