This study is a chronological history of the moral and economic factors which have influenced United States-South African relations since 1948, accessible to students, academics and the general readers. The chapters are primarily divided according to US presidential terms to show how each administration has dealt with the problems of supporting business interests while denouncing South Africa's racial policies. Included are the basic debates over divestment, international criticism, and the development of apartheid. It can also be used for US history, political science, and African history classes.
