This volume documents the foreign policy of the Nixon-Ford administration towards sub-Saharan Africa, 1973-1976, with the exception of policy towards the Republic of South Africa, Angola, Mozambique, Rhodesia, and Namibia, which are covered in print volume Foreign Relations, 1969–1976, Vol. XXVIII, Southern Africa. In addition, chapters on U.S. policy towards North Africa will be included in this electronic-only volume when they are declassified. This volume does not attempt to cover all countries in sub-Saharan Africa, but instead concentrates on those areas where U.S. interests and concerns were greatest. Countries or regions not covered in specific chapters are included, if significant, in the chapter on general U.S. policy towards Africa, which provides the widest scope of coverage.
