Product Overview

Over the past decade, Africa''s center of gravity in world politics has shifted from mere humanitarianism to a strategic view that posits the centrality of the continent as energy and natural resources supplier, in the fight against terrorism and other security threats, and in the globalization of culture. Besides these considerations, this shift is reflective of two defining dynamics. On one hand, political and economic reforms have contributed to the growth of democracy, an improvement in the economic outlook, and the strengthening of regional governance. On the other hand, the ongoing diffusion of global power is setting the stage for a new international order in which Africa will increasingly matter. This book probes the importance and significance of these developments and their implications for Africa''s international relations.

From the Publisher
Editors Note Over the last decade, there has been a shift toward a strategic view of Africa. China and the U.S. import respectively 30 and 22 percent of their oil from Africa. Africa is clearly emerging on the world stage as a strategic player. Besides energy security, this shift is reflective of two defining dynamics: political and economic reforms that have seen the growth of democracy, the improvement of economic outlook, and the strengthening of regional governance in Africa on the one hand; and the ongoing diffusion of global power, which is setting the stage for a new global order on the other hand. Africa and the New World Era probes the importance and significance of this shift and its implications for Africa’s international relations.
