The United States And South Africa: The Reagan Years
The United States And South Africa: The Reagan Years
By Pauline H. Baker
Ford Foundation/Foreign Policy Association, 1989, 158 pp.

Leading off this comprehensive update of an influential 1981 Ford Foundation study is an essay on the Reagan years and the policy of Assistant Secretary of State Chester Crocker that sums up the final epoch of the Cold War in southern Africa. Its usefulness is enhanced by the inclusion of several chronologies (of U.S.-South African relations and events in South Africa), a bibliography and appendices chronicling major watersheds.
