ABSTRACT
South Africa's isolation from the rest of the world is a source of mounting bitterness within the country. In October 1963, Prime Minister Hendrik Verwoerd received what seemed a stinging rebuff when the Prime Ministers of the Scandivanian countries turned down an invitation to visit South Africa to see it for themselves. Their refusal sharply illuminated South Africa's estrangement. This article discusses the distortion felt by South Africa feels brought by the outside world. It discusses how the world feels that South Africa cannot be permitted to stand aside from the great current of change in Africa and cannot be absolved from the responsibility of yielding freedom, dignity and opportunity to men of all races within its borders. The author examines the country's government system and domestic and foreign policies.
