Since the terrorist attacks on the American homeland on September 11, 2001, fighting the menace has become the frontier issue on the U.S.' national security agenda. In the case of the African Continent, the United States has, and continues to accord major attention to the West African sub-region.

This book :

Evaluates where we can place West Africa within the broader crucible of the U.S. war on terrorism

Establishes the key elements of the U.S.' counter-terrorism policy in West Africa?

Examines the U.S. counter-terrorism strategies in West Africa, and evaluates if they are being pursued both at the bilateral and multilateral levels in the region

Interrogates the relationship between stability in the sub-region and the waging of the U.S.' war on terrorism.

Specifically, the book examines the crises of underdevelopment-cultural, economic, environmental, political, security and social-in the sub-region, especially their impact on shaping the conditions that provide the taproots of terrorism. Clearly, addressing these multidimensional crises of underdevelopment is pivotal to the success of the U.S. war on terrorism in the sub-region.

This book will be of great interest to students and scholars of terrorism, homeland security, African Studies, conflict management, and political violence.
