"For the last five months of last year I was visiting institutes of international affairs and university centres of international and African studies in the United States and Canada, in Britain, Holland, France, Belgium and Western Germany. In all these places I talked on South Africa's racial relations as a problem in the international field and I would now like to tell you something of what I said about our position in world affairs and what reactions I encountered and, in conclusion, to look at our position now that I have studied it from the outside as well as from within."
