The article focuses on the Rhodesian policy to qualify for Anglo-American director on African Affairs. Rhodesia is not a consolidated country, rather a tribal aggregation haphazardly united by historical vagaries. The vote is more likely an expression of the power of intimidation than the sober reflection of the noble savage meditating the advantages of Marxism in the bush. According to the author, President Robert Mugabe rules Rhodesia because he fought a terrorist war with Soviet weapons.
