    schema:reviewBody ""During the closing days of the Cold War Africans correctly sensed that this profound development would soon impact on the role that Africa had experienced during that era. This was rapidly demonstrated as the West's attention shifted from Africa's modest but respectable Cold War strategic importance to Eastern Europe, a volatile Russia, and the new republics adjacent to the world's largest cauldron of ongoing hostilities, the Middle East. In the process, Africa, except for the Northern and Northeastern regions, was quickly marginalized." "This is not to say that Africa has been altogether ignored by the shifting policies of the former Cold War great powers." "The contributors focus on a standard regional framework. Of the five regions, northern and Southern Africa attract more attention from the US than do the other regions. However, America's support of ECOMOG's peacekeeping operations in West Africa, the controversial departure of General Mobutu of Zaire in Central Africa, and in East Africa the terrorist attacks against America's embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, plus America's missile attack on Sudan's alleged offensive weapons production facility, attest to the relevance of all regions to US interests in Africa."--Jacket." ;
