ABSTRACT
In year 1958, North Africa is the great unsolved problem of Western diplomacy. For instance, the Algerian issue has aggravated U.S. relations with France at the same time that it has exposed the U.S. to charges of supporting imperialism. There is, however, a rational solution to this problem on which much planning has already been done: a confederation of North Africa, which would include Tunisia, Morocco, an autonomous Algeria, and Libya. The implications of this project are immense. The most important is its impact on the policies of other newly-independent or almost-independent countries of the Middle East and Africa, for it will provide the opportunity to prove that dignified ties with the West are indeed possible, and can be a more productive course of action than neutralism. The author then, examines the plans for the confederation of Northern Africa, and see what can be done to establish a positive Western policy towards this crucial area.
