The Mozambique Liberation Front (FRELIMO) (Portuguese pronunciation: ), from the Portuguese Frente de Libertação de Moçambique is the dominant political party in Mozambique. Founded in 1962, FRELIMO began as a nationalist movement fighting for the independence of the Portuguese Overseas Province of Mozambique. Independence was achieved in June 1975 after the Carnation Revolution in Lisbon the previous year.
Politics of Mozambique takes place in a framework of a semi-presidential representative democratic republic, whereby the President of Mozambique is head of state and head of government of a multi-party system. Executive power is exercised by the government. Legislative power is vested in both the government and the Assembly of the Republic. The Economist Intelligence Unit rated Mozambique an "authoritarian regime" in 2018.

The book begins with the birth of Frelimo and the armed struggle for the independence of Mozambique from Portugal. As Emerson points out, independence and the subsequent problems of post-independence nation-building were very much a function of developments outside of the country. Frelimo’s Samora Machel provided Robert Mugabe’s ZANU sanctuary within Mozambique, plus arms and training.

Founded in 1962, the Mozambique Liberation Front (FRELIMO) aimed to combat poverty and reduce social imbalances, fight corruption, and increase national unity. FRELIMO's terror tactics and the inability of the thinly spread Portuguese forces to stop the infiltration added greatly to the alarm of Portuguese settlers and pro-Portuguese Africans, who in turn pressured the government to take firmer measures against the insurgents. A transitional government was to be established in which the prime minister and three cabinet ministers were to be appointed by the Portuguese and six other ministers were to be named by FRELIMO.
Mozambique, which gained independence from Portugal in 1975, is still suffering from the effects of a 16-year civil war that ended in 1992. Tensions remain between the ruling Frelimo party and the opposition former rebel movement Renamo and corruption has become a major concern. The discovery of gas fields off Mozambique's coast in 2011 is set to transform the economy of one of Africa's poorest nations. But despite recent economic growth, more than half of Mozambique's 24 million people continue to live below the poverty line.
