Abstract:

The essay makes a quick survey of the Indian Ocean and its littoral countries. It examines the interests of outside major world powers, several of which have had colonial interests in various parts of the area.

The United States future role as the major free world power is assessed. Guidelines for future United States foreign policy are recommended.
