The first edition of this book was published fifteen years ago. Many changes have
occurred in this period on the world stage. The wind of change has blown away the
Portuguese rule from Africa, giving freedom to Angola, Mozambique and Guinea Bissau.
Rhodesia's black majority has overthrown Ian Smith's "independence" of the White
settlers, putting Zimbabwe on Africa's map. Spain too had to withdraw from the
"Spanish Sahara".

I have re-read the preceding chapter (Territorial Slavery) to see if some changes were
advisable. But it seems that no alteration would be justified. The fact is that no
substantial change has occurred in the overall picture. Rather the situation has gone from
bad to worse - the flag independence of some countries notwithstanding.

South Africa, with whole-hearted "ethical, philosophical and scriptural"
support of the Dutch Reformed Church, is relentlessly pursuing its policy of apartheid. In
spite of pressures from O.A.U, Commonwealth and UNO members, the United States and the
United Kingdom have stubbornly refused to impose economic sanction against South Africa.
On the other hand, USA supports South Africa in its ventures to destabilise Angola and

The wave of Islamic awakening, with Islam's unambiguous stand against oppression of man
by man, or exploitation of nation by nation, is proving a stumbling block to the
oppressors of the weaker people. Not without reason, the 1986 Synod of the Dutch Reformed
Church had declared that Islam was a great danger to South Africa - i.e., to the idea of
racial supremacy.

With all the propaganda being made by the super powers about the Human Rights, the same
powers go on unabashedly trampling the basic human rights of weaker nations. Their
tentacles are strangulating the Middle East and Afghanistan, as well as Central America
and Central Asia. Nor has the Vatican changed its stance vis--vis freedom
movements and down-trodden masses.

Although the appearance of neo-colonialism has changed to some extent, its reality has
not changed at all. It was thought better, therefore, to let the concluding chapter stand
as it was.
