ABSTRACT
There is an assembly of the United Nations a group which seeks a short cut by the simple expedient of dividing Africa between those countries which are independent and those which are still subject to outside control. But such a simplification breaks down at the first realistic approach. Among the independent countries south of the Sahara, there exists as wide a difference between the Union of South Africa and Liberia, as there is between Ethiopia and Tunisia in the North. There is a fundamental difference between the Bantu and the Negro people of the South and the semi-Arabicized people of the North. It is the aim of this article to examine systematically the possibility for African developments to take place in harmony with the interests of civilization. The author evaluates the possibility of establishing a relationship with Africa that will avoid the difficulties that have arisen in the case of the Asian and Middle Eastern people. In the long view, the author asserts the need of Africa to be prepared to face the possibility that the progressive increase in the element of African control may imperil the political and economic stability which the regime has required under colonial control.
