KIRKUS REVIEW

Stein's progress report on Southern Africa concentrates on Angola's and Mozambique's prospective independence from Portugal, on the economic futures of Southern Africa's five African dominated states, and on the racial inequalities officially perpetuated in South Africa, Rhodesia and Namibia. Most of the capsule history and even the profile of apartheid are readily available elsewhere, and the brief text (about 30 pages out of 80 are devoted to photos) is barely more than an outline. However Stein does stimulate discussion by raising the moral question of American aid to and investments in white supremacist governments, and his succinct, fact-filled summary is usefully current.
