9780030718465: North Africa: Regional Tensions and Strategic Concerns

North Africa, comprising Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, and Libya, is of particular strategic and economics importance to both the United States and the Soviet Union. Richard B. Parker provides an informed perspective on the problems facing the region with special emphasis on the U.S. interests there. Beginning with histories of the four states, Parker examines their common features and individual differences, showing that each retains distinct reacial, historical, and economic personalities. He also discusses the various elements that influence affairs in each of the states and explores the numerous policy issues and possible courses of action. Separate chapters are devoted to the effects of the Islamic fundamentalist movement, the guerrilla war in the Western Sahara, and foreign powers on the states of North Africa.

Review:

?Richard Parker combines a scholar's historical perspective with a diplomat's first-hand experience in acquainting us with the Maghrib and its place in the global scene. Informative, clearly written, this book is of merit on a much-neglected subject.?-John C. Campbell, former Director of Studies, Council of Foreign Relations
