Oil and Terrorism in the New Gulf examines the national security implications of U.S. energy security policies in the Middle East, and the emerging U.S. involvement in oil exploration and extraction in West Africa. Similar political, social, and economic challenges_poverty, corruption, lack of infrastructure, and weak governments_are seen in the oil-producing states of both the Middle East and Africa. Drawing comparisons between these two regions allows Forest and Sousa to formulate policy recommendations for how to handle foreign policy toward Africa in the future based on lessons learned from past interaction with the Middle East. Oil and Terrorism in the New Gulf promises to inform a lively debate over the future of U.S. foreign policies toward Africa and is a valuable resource for policymakers and the academic community that should be approached in a coherent, integrated fashion to ensure the success of the United State's energy and national security agendas.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Informative . . upbeat and prescriptive. * Foreign Affairs *
Forest and Sousa focus on nexus of energy wealth and good governance, which is the key to future economic development, stability and prevention of terrorism. They have done a terrific job highlighting U.S. national security interests in the Gulf of Guinea-a little understood region of tremendous oil wealth. -- Ariel Cohen, The Heritage Foundation
