Namibia has been under colonial control for a century. South Africa's occupation of the territory, which was declared illegal by the United Nations in 1966, is maintained by a military force of the one hundred thousand men.
Aimed specifically at school students or those with little knowledge of the situation, This is Namibia illustrates, in an easily accessible form, how colonialism and apartheid have deprived the black majority of their economic, political and social rights. It describes their struggle against South Africa's illegal occupation, showing how SWAPO, the national liberation movement, has the support of the great majority of Namibians. Finally it explains Namibian's international status and the continuing drawn out negotiations for independence.
