'Ray Copson casts a dispassionate eye on recent U.S. policy toward Africa - on trade, development aid, support for democracy, counter terrorism, and HIV-AIDS - and lays bare the gap between high-flown rhetoric and the often disappointing reality. An essential book.'
Jon Sawyer, Director, Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting
‘Copson provides a fascinating insight into an area of foreign policy which has major implications for both Africa and America. This book’s fairness and moral clarity make it compulsory reading.’
Congressman Donald M. Payne
'Raymond Copson's analysis is rigorous and his approach to policy-making is promising. This book needs to be read by all concerned about Africa.'
