Routledge & Kegan Paul (for the Royal Institute of International Affair, 1983, 106 pp.

Three British scholars discuss Western, and particularly British, stakes in South Africa and lay out a policy for the longer term. Balancing the need for more decisive action against the difficulties of mounting effective sanctions, they call on the West to build up stockpiles of strategic minerals in order to increase Western freedom of action vis-à-vis South Africa, and to apply "positive pressures" for change as in enforcement of investment codes and aid to black labor unions.
