In a manuscript based upon information given by some 2,000 persons, a note of appreciation for their help must, perforce, be a general one. The controversial nature of the subject, moreover, makes it kinder, in many instances, to preserve the anonymity of one's counsels.

There are some, however, in the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland, whose help and friendship should and can be thankfully noted without it raising the slightest suspicions that they may have connived in my conclusions. Among these are Sir Roy Welensky, Sir Robert Tredgold, Erskine Grant-Dalton, Humphrey Wightwick, Winston Field, Col. Harpur, Col. Grigg, Col. Conroy, Col. Slater, Mr. Thomas and the Department of External Affairs, the Rhodesia Herald and Mr. Cowen, its editor; Alvin Dobsevage, the Baron von Kimmelman and the Rhodesian Selection Trust, Mr. Howe-Ely and Philip Laundy.

Among those whose positions and views are too well known for them to seek anonymity and whose friendship and help I have valued are Garfield Todd, Sir John Moffat, Dick Hall, Rob Moffat, Sir Arthur Benson, Rev. Andrew Doig, and particularly Grace and Dr. Alex Scott, whose friendship was one of the principal rewards of my several visits to the Federation.

I also doubt whether grateful mention here could make matters much more difficult for my friends George Nyandoro, Robert Chikarema, Dauti Yamba and Wellington Chirwa.

Outside the Federation, too, I have received the unstinting help of those who did and those who did not share my analysis: Lord Beaverbrook, Lord Chandos, Mme. Pandit, Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt, James Callaghan, my friend and mentor Prof. Louis B. Sohn, Prof. Lon Fuller, Prof. Paul Freund, Rev. Edwin A. Quain, S.J., Miss Emily Schossberger, and David Wickens.

An appreciative notation must also be made of the help received from the Canadian Institute of International Affairs and the Ford Foundation.

As I write this, clouds of conflict are darkening over the loveliest land I know. I pray that my friends who agree with these following observations can make their country listen before it is too late --or that those who disagree may prove us to be wrong.

March 30, 1960.
