MEDIA REVIEWS
"A counterweight to the often shallow perspectives on African events and affairs as communicated by broadcast and print media, which tend to be overly descriptive, short on evidence, and divorced from historical context. Libraries, be they local public institutions or at major research universities, would be well advised to include this title in their collections." -- Jonathan T. Reynolds * American Historical Review *
"[A] well-organized, easy-to-read survey of a very complicated field of literature ... clear and succinct presentation of major factors driving foreign intervention....it is refreshing to have a textbook on the market that is clearly designed for teaching undergraduates." -- Jeremy M. Rich * H-Africa *
"Foreign Intervention in Africa after the Cold War should become the quintessential building block for future conceptual, theoretical, and empirical explorations of international affairs in and with Africa." -- A. Carl LeVan * H-Diplo Roundtable, 2 March 2020 *

The bibliographical essays at the end of each chapter make it especially helpful to students. This is a fine study that is ideal for classroom use." -- Allen F. Isaacman, author (with Barbara S. Isaacman) of Dams, Displacement, and Delusions of Development
"Foreign Intervention in Africa After the Cold War is an excellent contribution to African studies, history and political science because of the many insights into the extent and complexities of foreign intervention in one accessible text.
