The Canadian political scientist Lauren Dobell is the author of ‘Swapo’s Stuggle for Namibia, 1960-1991’ (1998). She argues that the diplomatic context of the Cold War was the constant and overriding determinant of the SWAPO leadership’s thinking about Namibia’s future development. Swapo as Namibia’s foremost liberation organisation was almost wholly pragmatic, even opportunistic, in its approach to policy-making, in which absolutely everything was subordinated to ending South African rule and installing the SWAPO leadership in an independent government. Her book was published by P. Schlettwein Publishing.
