Abstract:

This study analyzes the impact of recent political, economic, and military developments in Central Africa--Zaire, Angola, and Zambia--and relates them to U.S. security interests in the region, on the continent, and worldwide. Special attention is devoted to the role of extracontinental powers, particularly the Soviet Union, Cuba, and China, in the region. Specific findings are offered to help guide policymakers in this changing and key area.
