South Africa’s relations with the rest of the world have been a subject of more intense debate at the United Nations and the O.A.U. than any other international problem; but the continuing debate is also about the Republic’s internal race policies subsumed in the term apartheid. Recent works on the subject* agree that South Africa’s foreign policy is the direct product of the Republic’s internal race policies. The least satisfactory of these is Cockram’s examination of Vorster’s foreign policy. Unlike Barber and Vandenbosch, who analyse South Africa’s foreign policy in the context of the world at large, Cockram does attempt to give a comprehensive outline of South Africa’s concern with its immediate neighbours in Southern Africa and other black African states in the continent at large.
