The Dynamics of Economic and Political Relations between Africa and Foreign Powers: A Study in International Relations

Synopsis

International relations at large and Africa's in particular are shaped by the actors' historical location, by what they offer economically and culturally, and by who they are socially. In international relations, nations tend to deal with objective conditions as they are or as they are perceived. However, Lumumba-Kasongo demonstrates through case-studies of Liberia and Zaire/Congo that what "the objective conditions" are may not necessarily be what they ought to be in the national development process.
