The world's foremost institution on international affairs is proud to present a citizen's guide to Africa--a book that deconstructs the continenet's complex issues and conflicts, as well as clarifies what's at stake for the United States in Africa's future. BEYOND HUMANITARIANISM--MORE THAN_AIDS AND WAR: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT AFRICA AND WHY IT MATTERS is a primer about the issues that are in the news as well as those that are not. Drawing on articles from "Foreign Affairs," the Council's reports published by the Council, this book is an essential guide to debates about the future of the continent and the U.S.-Africa relationship. In addition to an insightful introduction by one of the world's leading experts on Africa, Council Senior Fellow Princeton Lyman, a former U.S. ambassador to South Africa and Nigeria, this volume includes an excerpt from the Council's 2006 Independent Task Force report on Africa that, according to the U.S. Department of State, "raised the profile of Africa among policymakers." For anyone interested in learning more on why and how Africa matters, BEYOND HUMANITARIANISM is a must-read.
