South Africa's contacts with neighboring African states to the north--often hidden during the apartheid years--are well-documented but here is a unique study based on hitherto unexplored documentary sources behind the apartheid screen showing extensive contact even during periods of conflict. These relations paved the way for South Africa's emergence as a superpower acceptable to her neighbors and as a modern African state.
