Hardly a day passes without some news about South Africa. Along with this news, there are lots of opinions, speculations, and publications. South Africa's Security Dilemmas joins the list. This new book looks at South Africa's military future. It specifically examines the military problems that South Africa will face over the next decade. According to the author, South Africa is a colossus with feet of clay. He points out that South Africa will have problems because of service morale, deficiency of equipment, and performance of the defense sector. He also discusses how the West has taken for granted South Africa's alignment with the Western World, and its ramifications. Finally, Coker shows that South Africa's security dilemmas are largely of its own making. He concludes that choices between roles have been avoided for far too long and some hard decisions will have to be made.
