170 pp, 8 3/4" H. "Judith Todd sets out some facts on the origins of the dispute over Rhodesia (the current Zimbabwe). As the daughter of a former Prime Minister she is in a good position to know part of the story from the inside. Her father is now 'restricted' by an order made by an illegal government. Miss Todd was brought up on a mission station in Rhodesia and while she understands perfectly well the European achievement in this part of Africa, she has seen also that it is not enough. Not at least while the great majority of the population is thwarted politically and socially underprivileged to an extreme degree. Their leaders are cajoled, penalised; their sympathisers are made victims of the most crude political enmity - amounting almost to hysteria. Miss Todd is devoted to the best and long-lasting aspirations of this beautiful country. She can, therefore, bear the revilement that the friends of the misguided and ultimately doomed Rhodesian government have to offer. Patriotism may well not be enough; but justicce and freedom are necessary foundations to any patriotism deserving of the name."
