This memorandum is an analysis of the internal settlement, arguing that the U.S. faces a critical test of its "new policy" toward southern Africa. Powerful forces in the U.S. and Great Britain are pressing for at least tacit endorsement of the internal settlement between Ian Smith and Bishop Muzorewa, Rev. Sithole and Chief Chirau.
