This book addresses the problem of the mortality of new political parties in the Southern African region from 1987 to 2022. The process of democratization in the region took place in the 1990s, when there was a transition from African Socialism to Democracy regime, from one-party to multi-party system. However, this transition was characterized by a series of events, such as the emergence of new parties and coalitions of political parties, as well as their immediate demise. The book explores the reasons for the premature death of these parties. The study's field of action is the sociology of political parties, and it seeks to understand the internal and external reasons that influence the mortality of new parties in the region. However, although to a limited extent, the study also explores the new political formations that were born at the same time, but which had a different fate to the others. This dichotomy between mortality and survival, which is vividly discussed in the book, leads us to understand the reasons behind the high level of mortality of political parties in the region, especially in South Africa and Angola, as they lead the list.
