These are the March 5, 8, 15, 19; May 12, 13, 21, 26, and 27, 1976 hearings titled "U.S. Policy Toward Africa," held before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on African Affairs and The Subcommittee on Arms Control, International Organizations and Security Agreements and The Committee on Foreign Relations. From the opening statement of Dick Clark: "Both the Communist and the Western Powers proclaim support for majority rule, human rights and racial equality in southern Africa. For the Soviet Union, the People's Republic of China and, at least to some degree, Cuba, this policy has included military assistance to the liberation movements as well as other kinds of international pressure. The Western Powers have relied exclusively on diplomatic and economic pressure, opposing the tragic cost of violent change. […] It is now clear that if change does not come peacefully very soon in Rhodesia and Namibia, it will be accomplished militarily." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: David Apter, William R. Cotter, Donald B. Easum, Robert C. Good, William E. Griffith, G. Wayne Kerr, Henry A. Kissinger, Myron B. Kratzer, Colin Legum, John A. Marcum, Stephan M. Minikes, Waldemar A. Nielsen, William E. Schaufele, Peter Vanneman, Andrew Young, and Mason Willrich.
