THE UNITED STATES IN AFRICA
The George W Bush administration maintains that in sub-Saharan Africa it has made major new contributions in fighting disease, promoting development, fostering democracy, and promoting peace. Yet, despite the rhetoric, is the Bush administration really working to bring about a fairer and more just Africa?
Though aid has increased and a major AIDS initiative has been launched, Copson argues that US policy in Africa falls well short of meeting reasonable standards of fairness or justice. He concludes by assessing the prospects of a more equitable policy emerging in future administrations.

Equiano’s travels Edited By Paul EdwardsSeller: GrammyBooks
Widely admired for its vivid accounts of the slave trade, Olaudah Equiano’s autobiography — the first slave narrative to attract a significant readership — reveals many aspects of the eighteenth-century Western world through the experiences of one individual. The second edition reproduces the original London printing, supervised by Equiano in 1789. Robert J. Allison’s introduction, which places Equiano’s narrative in the context of the Atlantic slave trade, has been revised and updated to reflect the heated controversy surrounding Equiano’s birthplace, as well as the latest scholarship on Atlantic history and the history of slavery. Improved pedagogical features include contemporary illustrations with expanded captions and a map showing Equiano’s travels in greater detail. Helpful footnotes provide guidance throughout the eighteenth-century text, and a chronology and an up-to-date bibliography aid students in their study of this thought-provoking narrative.SKU: n/a
