n Africa Insight - African foreign policy and diplomacy from antiquity to the 21st century, Volume 1, Daniel Don Nanjira : book review

Volume 43, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0256-2804


This book is a welcome addition to the material available on the teaching activities and practices of university lecturers, especially those involved in the delivery of complex abstractions that deal with African foreign policy and diplomacy. This book deals with a series of important questions: What is Africa? Why Africa? Why study Africa? Is it moral to study Africa and to forth (p.3)? The title should attract anyone who is interested in the analysis of foreign policy and diplomacy in Africa, principally because these topics are combined in original ways but also because the book deals with an under-researched area. On the one hand, only a few studies have been carried out on foreign policy and diplomacy in Africa countries while, on the other, the author often analyses these questions separately. As a result, the book represents an important contribution to the literature on African foreign policy and diplomacy from antiquity to the 21st century. Written in 22 chapters, the book takes a practical approach which will allow academics, practitioners and students to find important information for increasing their knowledge of foreign policy and diplomacy, thus learning from the African experience.
