This book on United States-African relations during the Reagan-Bush era, 1980-1992, examines issues that helped to shape the relationships of the actors. While the major focus of the essays is on this period, the analyses cull evidence from earlier periods to give the reader an appreciation for the historical settings of the issues investigated.
