"The 'Namibia Dossier' is published by the South African Information Programme of the International University Exchange Fund on behalf of the group inside South Africa who produced the original Dossier, which was banned by the authorities. During 1978 the National Union of South African Students (NUSAS) published a 'Focus on Namibia' which, in order to stimulate debate brought together material already published. But the South African government, in its continued assault on any publications which do not reflect the official propaganda lies, banned even this 'Focus'. A concerned group of young South Africans therefore decided to publish the Dossier to try to circumvent the government's attempts at mind control. .... Some more recent material has been added to the original Dossier but its design is maintained so as to enable separate parts to be easily reproduced and so more widely distributed internally. At the same time because the Dossier represents a unique collection of material on Namibia -- and is an example of what youth resistance movements inside South Africa are producing themselves -- the IUEF is also making available a limited number of copies for international distribution". -- inside front cover.
