The victory of Zimbabwe belongs to its people, whose long and difficult struggle against a highly industrialised state with sophisticated military weaponry finally forced the Smith government to negotiate. This chapter focuses on the Frontline States, the five neighbours that aided the Zimbabwean liberation movement, much to their own economic and political peril. The military forces depended on guerrilla bases and training camps initially in one -Tanzania, and ultimately four - Angola, Mozambique, Tanzania, Zambia- of the Frontline States. Pledging a united stand in support of Zimbabwean independence, they initiated the negotiating conferences that eventually led to Lancaster House. In analysing the role of the Frontline States in the liberation of Zimbabwe, two major theoretical issues emerge: the importance of the internationalisation of capital and the centrality of the role of the state. The chapter also presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in this book.
