Currently, 15 percent of U.S. oil imports come from Africa--as much as from the Middle East--and the continent is poised to double its output over the coming decade. It has become the focus of attention from countries like China, which now imports more oil from Angola than from Saudi Arabia. In addition, Africa is rising in importance in trade, international security, democracy promotion, and efforts to tackle worldwide concerns about global health and poverty.

The Council on Foreign Relations and Foreign Affairs present Beyond Humanitarianism, a compilation of recent work on Africa. This citizen's guide to the complex issues and conflicts on the continent clarifies what s at stake in Africa's future. It addresses underlying trends--such as the growth of democracy, the rising activity of China, and the political and economic prospects for the countries of Africa, as well as regional conflicts and terrorist threats there--and provides an absorbing look at Africa's emergence as a strategic player.

About the Author:

Princeton N. Lyman is the adjunct senior fellow for Africa policy studies at the Council on Foreign Relations. Patricia Dorff is director of publications at the Council on Foreign Relations.

Review:

"Africa is on the agenda for foreign policymakers dealing with trade, terrorism, new democracies, failing states, global health, and, not least, geopolitics. Yet deep knowledge about Africa outside the development and humanitarian communities is sparse. Beyond Humanitarianism is the perfect antidote--a remarkable and crisply organized collection of essays on the full range of challenges that confront Africa and the world. Highly recommended!" --Anne-Marie Slaughter, Dean, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University

"As this volume makes apparent, the United States has compelling security, economic, and political interests throughout Africa; the challenge now is pursuing these interests with sustained, strategic support that bolsters African-led initiatives to promote governance, stability, equality, and prosperity across the continent." --Russell D. Feingold, U.S. Senator

"Beyond Humanitarianism is one of the most important compilations of works on today s Africa--a continent whose great strides towards positively reinventing itself are largely unknown in the West. It is a timely work that captures the continent's ongoing struggles, but also its ever-increasing victories, and it lays out plausible solutions that could make a huge difference in Africa's efforts to join the Family of Nations as a fully functioning member. I hope it gets the widest possible readership, particularly in America, where all too often the continent is seen solely through the prism of the four ds--death, disease, disaster, and despair. A book like this is needed to help Americans understand why a healthy Africa matters and to foster the kind of international cooperation needed to help change negative perceptions, as well as the realities that feed them--for all our sakes." --Charlayne Hunter-Gault, Johannesburg Bureau Chief for CNN
