Reflecting the debate between state-centered and human-security approaches to security strategy, ""Africa-US Relations"" explores the interactions between the US and African countries in a wide spectrum of key arenas. The authors range from such traditional security issues as peacekeeping and terrorism to concerns with HIV/AIDS, environmental degradation, aid policies, and international trade. Their contributions place in sharp relief the differences in inner logic and preferred consequences among alternative strategic perspectives - as well as the implications of those differences for policy choices.

Review quote

"Presenting two competing paradigms of security in Africa, the authors offer a valuable analysis of how the 'war on terror' has introduced a new sense of urgency into US-Africa relations, and of the security implications of such issues as aid, debt, peacekeeping, HIV/AIDS, and oil." - Robert Mortimer, Haverford College"
