When the Rhodesian Government in November 1965 declared independence from Great Britain, first the British Government and then the United Nations imposed economic sanctions against Rhodesia to compel that Government "to return to legality," The experience of the past 10 years shows that not only have economic sanctions not brought about the intended political changes, but also that Rhodesia has, in fact, prospered.
