The chapter shifts the focus of the book from the subject of Africans and Africa in British culture to the literature from the deep south and the belated achievement of black majority rule in Zimbabwe, Namibia, and South Africa. The chapter, while doing so, confronts a different historical situation as the end of colonialism/settler rule coincides with the end of the Cold War and the beginning of a new era of globalization. Most of this chapter is devoted to South African writing. Furthermore, it outlines the journey of South African writers and the different issues raised by them.

Keywords:   literature, Africans, British culture, deep south, black majority rule, Zimbabwe, Namibia, South Africa, colonialism, South African writers, globalization
