The book presents an interdisciplinary perspective on the
large-scale processes of socio-economic and political change
of two „young“ democracies, post-apartheid South Africa
and the post-socialist Czech Republic. As the political
transition in both countries coincides with the intensified
effects of globalisation, especially with the advent of
neoliberal economic ideologies and policies, the two
countries exhibit a number of common features and parallels
in their respective transitions and post-developments. The
chapters in the book seek to describe the particular
place(s) South Africa and the Czech Republic occupy in the
dual processes of internationalisation and globalisation.
