Indeed, Savimbi did start out as a Maoist. Wish I had some background in the
particulars of the Angolan struggle. And BTW, sorry I mixed up
Mozambique with Angola in a post yesterday recommending the Finnegan book on
Mozambique. Are there some good radical books on Angola perhaps from Zed
Press, Monthly Review Press, Third World Press (or is it, Africa World
Press?), Pluto, etc?
