The South African National Defence Force (SANDF) recently celebrated, “25 Years of Defence in Democracy”[i]. Professor Lindy Heinecken’s latest book, South Africa’s post-apartheid military: Lost in transition and transformation, is therefore a timely work. Published 25 years after South Africa’s first democratic elections and the integration of the country’s disparate armed forces, Heinecken gives a well-researched, fair and comprehensive account of the critical issues that have characterised 25 years of defence in South Africa.
