Foreign Policy & Black (Inter)Nation (Suny Series, Afro-American Studies)by Charles P. Henry
Synopses & Reviews
With African Americans largely absent from the debate over post-Cold War foreign policy, this book gives voice to ways in which our foreign policy has fallen short of multicultural democratic ideals and suggests corrective measures. Covering such global issues as drug and arms control, trade, democracy-building and education, and such country specific situations as Haiti, Liberia, South Africa, and the Caribbean, from both academic and practitioners points of view, it proves that "all politics are local and global". In doing so it asks the question, can a multicultural democratic country produce a multicultural democratic foreign policy?
