In den letzten Jahren fand eine stetige Privatisierung von Kriegen statt, nicht zuletzt durch den Einsatz von "Söldnerfirmen" wie Blackwater (heute: Academi) in Afghanistan und im Irak. Doch es ist ein weit verbreiteter Irrglaube, dass Söldner erst mit dem Aufstieg der großen Militärdienstleister nach dem Ende des Kalten Krieges wieder zu einem wichtigen Konfliktakteur wurden. Tatsächlich fanden sie in der Konfrontation der Supermächte mit ihren verdeckten Operationen und Stellvertreterkriegen eine ideale Basis. Während man in Washington glaubte, dass Söldner risikofreie Interventionen in der "Dritten Welt" ermöglichten, brachte ihr Einsatz zugleich eine erhebliche politisch-moralische Hypothek mit sich und bot eine perfekte Angriffsfläche für kommunistische Propaganda. Weit verbreitete Annahmen zu Geheimdiensten, verdeckten Operationen und dem Management öffentlicher Meinung werden in diesem Buch hinterfragt: Der Einsatz von Söldnern verweist darauf, dass echte Geheimhaltung weitaus weniger wichtig war, als die Möglichkeit für die amtierende US-Administration, zumindest formal die Verantwortung für die inoffiziellen Kriege im Ausland abstreiten zu können. Klaas Voß erzählt die wenig beachtete Vorgeschichte der aktuellen Rückkehr des Söldnertums und erinnert an die Schlachtfelder halb vergessener Konflikte des Kalten Krieges im Kongo, in Angola, Rhodesien und Nicaragua.

White women cut an ambivalent figure in the transnational history of the British Empire. They tend to be remembered as malicious harridans personifying the worst excesses of colonialism, as vacuous fusspots, whose lives were punctuated by a series of frivolous pastimes, or as casualties of patriarchy, constrained by male actions and gendered ideologies. This book, which places itself amongst other "new imperial histories", argues that the reality of the situation, is of course, much more intricate and complex. Focusing on post-war colonial Rhodesia, Gendering the Settler State provides a fine-grained analysis of the role(s) of white women in the colonial enterprise, arguing that they held ambiguous and inconsistent views on a variety of issues including liberalism, gender, race and colonialism.

This edited volume examines the complexities of the Cold War in Southern Africa and uses a range of archives to develop a more detailed understanding of the impact of the Cold War environment upon the processes of political change. In the aftermath of European decolonization, the struggle between white minority governments and black liberation movements encouraged both sides to appeal for external support from the two superpower blocs. Cold War in Southern Africa highlights the importance of the global ideological environment on the perceptions and consequent behaviour of the white minority regimes, the Black Nationalist movements, and the newly independent African nationalist governments. Together, they underline the variety of archival sources on the history of Southern Africa in the Cold War and its growing importance in Cold War Studies. This volume brings together a series of essays by leading scholars based on a wide range of sources in the United States, Russia, Cuba, Britain, Zambia and South Africa. By focussing on a range of independent actors, these essays highlight the complexity of the conflict in Southern Africa: a battle of power blocs, of systems and ideas, which intersected with notions and practices of race and class This book will appeal to students of cold war studies, US foreign policy, African politics and International History. Sue Onslow has taught at the London School of Economics since 1994. She is currently a Cold War Studies Fellow in the Cold War Studies Centre/IDEAS
