A short dissertation submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Magister Artium in History in the Faculty of Arts, at the Rand Afrikaans University. This study directs its attention to the support that Zambia extended to the ANC in the struggle against apartheid. It examines Zambia's support for the ANC within the context of the conflict between the liberation movements and the White minority governments in Southern Africa, and seeks to find out to what extent Zambia's commitment to the liberation of Southern Africa from White minority rule was translated into meaningful support for the ANC. While the focus of the study falls on Zambia's support for the ANC, the following issues have been taken up: the concept of a host state and liberation in Southern Africa, the organisation and growth of the ANC under the refuge of a host state, and the effects on Zambia of her support for the ANC.
