This essay collection examines the emerging trends in foreign policy formulation, implementation, and evaluation in post Cold War Africa. Editors, Adar and Schraeder, have gathered thirteen essays that analyze existing foreign policy, propose changes to the African foreign policy approach, and explore the implications of African foreign policy on the world stage. Organized into two sections, individual country case studies and regional and global case studies, this important text is a timely addition to International Relations, Foreign Policy, and African International Studies courses; as well as a useful tool for policy makers, diplomats, and the NGO community.
