Scope and Contents

Student paper by LCDR Richard M. Scruggs, USN in which he discussed how Rhodesia's (present day Zimbabwe) unilateral declaration of independence in 1965 Nov created a dilemma in the formulation of United States foreign policy with that county. In this paper, he proclaimed that the U.S.'s policy, aimed at toppling the Smith government through economic warfare, served no one and had been unsuccessful. Instead, he contended that the U.S. should adopt a new and positive policy in seeking its objectives in Rhodesia.
