'From Rivalry to Partnership' is the first to study a potentially valuable way forward in tackling the challenges of Africa, namely bilateral partnerships. The book evaluates the significance and strength of the emerging Anglo-French partnership and explores how far this and other forms of 'bilateral' and 'bi-multi' cooperation might serve as a valuable alternative or complement to traditional unilateral and multilateral approaches in Africa. Practitioners, established academic experts as well emerging scholars in the field bring to bear a sophisticated synthesis of neoclassical realism and 'discursive institutionalism' and findings from over 100 research interviews to explore how joint approaches and bilateral partnerships have been used to address the challenges of Africa. In developing this argument, the editors explore: * Anglo-French cooperation in Africa * other bilateral partnerships in Africa, notably the Nordic states and the US * the Africa-EU Strategic Partnership * the China-Africa partnership and its implications for the EU-Africa partnership and for leading European states Written in a clear and accessible style, 'From Rivalry to Partnership' offers a much needed fresh insight into whether and how bilateral partnerships make a real difference to people's lives on the African continent.'

Review:

'From Rivalry to Partnership offers a much needed review of changing relations between the major former colonial powers and Africa in the post-Cold War world. Focusing particularly on a shift to 'bi-multi' collaboration between France and Britain, this valuable collection combines theoretical reassessment with valuable case studies to provide a text of immense value to all scholars of International Relations and contemporary Africa.' Roger Southall, University of the Witwatersrand and Editor, Journal of Contemporary African Studies, South Africa 'In their timely and innovative volume From Rivalry to Partnership Tony Chafer and Gordon Cumming are questioning the underpinnings and investigating the prospects of the emerging bilateral/multilateral partnership between the United Kingdom/France and Africa. This direction of inquiry opens up new perspectives on cooperation with the African continent, and offers important new interpretations of North-South relations.' Ulf Engel, Institute of African Studies, University of Leipzig, Germany 'Chafer and Cumming have brought together an eminently well qualified group of experts to provide a multi-faceted and fascinating view of the causes and effects of Franco-British cooperation in Africa in recent years. This excellent collection of articles is an important addition to our understanding of contemporary Western approaches to Africa, and will be required reading for students of European policy towards Africa since the 1990s.' Tom Porteous, Human Rights Watch, author of Britain in Africa 'This is an important publication on Anglo-French cooperation in Africa. The book provides a vivid account of the foreign policy interests and strategies that have evolved since the December 1998 Saint Malo Summit between Britain and France on how the two countries could forge stronger bilateral cooperation on Africa. The authors' objective was to present a broad theoretical framework that would facilitate deeper understanding of this partnership. The contributors and editors utilize neoclassical realism as their theoretical framework. To further empiricize the study, the editors conducted over 160 interviews with officials, politicians, and practitioners in Paris, London, Brussels, Dakar, Abuja, Kinshasa, Khartoum, New York, and Washington DC. Without any iota of doubt, this book will generate reactions and some enthusiastic but divergent reviews... this book is refreshingly illuminating and well written. It provides a compendium of developments since 1998 in Anglo-French cooperation on African issues, as well as other bilateral and bi-multilateral relations on Africa. It is a good addition to the growing body of literature on partnership for Africa's development.' African Affairs
