UDI : The International Politics of the Rhodesian Rebellion [Princeton University Press]

£19.99

Product description

Published by Princeton University Press. First published by Faber and Faber in 1973, its not quite clear when this edition by Princeton was published. Includes bibliographical notes and an index.

Fearing that their "civilization" would be overwhelmed, a tiny enclave of whites in Central Africa rebelled against a power which a little more than twenty-five years before had ruled the largest empire the world had ever known. Robert C. Good provides an immensely readable account of the international politics of the Rhodesian rebellion which, as he demonstrates, put great political and financial strains on Great Britain, placed Zambia in mortal danger, almost destroyed the multiracial Commonwealth, and promoted an unprecedented involvement of the United Nations in programs of dubious effectiveness and doubtful wisdom.
The complex sequence of events which led to the "unilateral declaration of independence" of November 1965 and the settlement of November 1971 are probed, and the policies of the British and Rhodesian governments analysed, particularly the actions and responses of Harold Wilson. Above all, the Rhodesian crisis is placed in its international setting to show that the failure to impose a transition towards majority rule in Rhodesia has meant that a significant chance to reverse present trends in Southern Africa towards the hardening of racial attitudes and erosion of African confidence in Western intentions has been lost.

There is a name inscribed on the front end paper 'A K Boxer'.

Complete with unclipped dust jacket which is protected by plastic sleeve. Slight yellowing to the dust jacket. There are some light pencil notes in the margins of a few pages. In very good condition with little sign of wear and a firm binding.
