oa Africa Insight - Swaziland: Aamodern monarchy

Volume 16, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 0256-2804



The history of nations is largely an account of their migrations and settlement, of their reasons for selecting a particular environment and of the way in which they exploited available resources - not only in the face of ecological demands but also in competition with other similarly organized groups - in the universal struggle for survival. Upon such fundamental needs modes of living are established, reflecting in their economic, technological, social, political, educational and other institutions the values upon which their cultures are based. The installation of a new king in Swaziland to follow in the footsteps of the highly respected Sobhuza II has focussed world-wide interest on the way in which this ancient institution will meet the needs of modern times.
