Africa's International Relations : Balancing Domestic and Global Interests, Paperback / softback Book

Africa's International Relations : Balancing Domestic and Global Interests Paperback / softback


Comprehensive and engaging, this timely introduction to Africa's international relations explores how power, interests, and ideas influence interactions both among the continent's states and between African states and other actors in the global arena. How has history shaped the international relations of African states and peoples?

What role does identity play? How are foreign policies linked to domestic political dynamics, and especially to the pursuit of regime security?

How are states grappling with the tensions between sovereignty and external pressures?

These are among the questions answered as the authors address a wide range of ongoing and emerging challenges, all in historical and theoretical context.

In addition, a case study at the end of each chapter illustrates key concepts and reflects an ongoing debate.

The result is an ideal text for students, as well as an invaluable resource for researchers and policymakers.
