ABSTRACT
This article discusses South Africa's foreign relations which are linked indissolubly with the internal workings of its society. It asserts that the maintenance of the country's present degree of interdependence with European and American private enterprise depends on the preservation of an image of internal stability. Deflecting further international sanctions requires the repressing of Western anxieties about racial injustice and potential racial conflict. Thus, the most important aspect of South Africa's foreign policy must be a public relations campaign directed toward the governments and citizens of the industrial democracies.
