Abstract:There are many prevailing notions and myths about the strategy and objectives of the Socialist powers and their associated socialist states in Southern Africa. Purpose of this paper is to try to cut through the myths and the propaganda to the reality of the confrontation now breaking in Southern Africa and go to get some clarification of what the nature of this new Soviet and socialist power in Southern Africa is, and what are some of the consequences for that region and for the world: Soviet strategy - Socialist strategy and African control - China -Client states - Escalation. Notes, charts.
