The International Relations of Sub-Saharan Africa by Ian Taylor

The International Relations of Sub-Saharan Africa


The International Relations of Sub-Saharan Africa by Ian Taylor

Examines Sub-Saharan Africa's relations with states such as the US, India, China, the EU, and Britain as well as with non-state actors. This book provides a critical appraisal of the ways in which peace, prosperity, and democracy are being advanced (or restricted) by the activities of the great powers in Africa, including non-state actors.


'Taylor's book may lack a little nuance and cheer, it more than compensates with rich and learned historical contextualisation and trenchant realism and clarity.'--Sanford Lakoff Taylor's information and assessments concerning the Africa policies of external powers are well marshalled and worth reading. --Sanford Lakoff'
