Resumo:
For almost three decades after independence from Portugal in 1975, Angola did not find peace. After a long period of settler colonialism and one and a half decades of liberation war, a protracted civil war lead to further violence, because the dominant parties in Angola remained deeply involved in the overall struggle in Southern Africa about liberation, Apartheid and regional supremacy. The authors of this volume explore various dimensions of the dynamics of social reconstruction in post-war Angola. Considering the unfinished business of a violent past, they analyze the endeavors for reconciliation and nation-building, and the attempts to find a new Angolan identity. The volume provides up-to-dateinsights into efforts to cope with Angola’s violent recent history. Authors address the consequences of traumatic experiences and new forms of social resilience. The contributions bring forward our understanding of the complex process of social reconstruction in Angola.
