The worlds political and economic relationships are no longer defined in terms of the bi-polar, cold war era. Expansion of both economic and political liberty has overtaken portions of the Second and Third World. In Eastern Europe, Marxist dictatorships have unraveled. The door is opened to free market economic reforms and democratic political systems. Changes have occurred in Asia and Latin America. Some autocratic regimes have fallen and there has been reconciliation between some governments and their indigenous dissident groups. Africa as a region is an exception to this growing trend. Of the fifty nations of Africa, forty-one remain single-party or military dictatorships. The New World Order seems irrelevant to most African states. However, Angola now sits on the verge of dramatic changes that may make it an exception to the African norm.
