Abstract
The report gives a brief historical account of the rise of the Republic of South Africa with an emphasis on the identification of the historical basis for the Republic's existing sense of insecurity. The problem of guerrilla forces in the region is examined from the perspective of comparative force ratios in order to provide some indication of the degree to which the Republic of South Africa's manpower resources are being over-burdened now and may be increasingly over-burdened in the future. The final portion of the paper examines the strategic interests of the West in Southern African in geopolitical terms.
