U.S.-Africa Relations: From Clinton to Obama examines political, economic, and cultural relations between the United States and Africa during the Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama administrations within the context of the post-Cold War era and the emergence of the war on terror. The book's contributors argue that each administration, despite changing the names of their policies toward Africa, continued to evaluate their policies based on U.S. national interests-democracy, economic interests (oil and gas), and security-particularly following the September 11 terrorist attacks.

About the Author

Cassandra Rachel Veney is associate professor in the Department of Philosophy and Political Science at Quinnipiac University.


[The] author's incisive interpretative repertoire ... gives the book a multilayered texture that is intriguing and puts it above standard narratives about the Liberian civil war and its dehumanizing violence...While specialists of violence and its effects on society will find it easier to relate to the book's subject matter for obvious reasons, non-specialists will also be pleasantly surprised by the ease with which they can follow Abramowitz's complex thought process that seldom wavers in its attempt to reenact the chaotic nature of a dysfunctional Liberian society reemerging from its troubled war-torn recent past.
