Furthering Jabulani Beza's research on African unity and Rhodesia, Rhodesia: A Lesson in African Self-Reliance explores the history and strategies in political and economic policy of African nations. Beza finds a number of areas where African nations have failed to secure their independence, from reliance on outside help for problems that are uniquely African, to the lack of long-range planning in facing the unexpected. Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe, is used as the prime example of a nation struggling to come full circle from seeking assistance from outside nations to taking matters into their own hands, and finally establishing independence. Beza hopes to raise awareness of the importance of this realization among African nations. A secure and peaceful African continent can be obtained through long-range contingency plans and a strengthened Organization of African Unity.
