Nigeria, Africa, and the United States: From Kennedy to Reagan

Front Cover
Indiana University Press, 1991 - Political Science - 193 pages
0 Reviews

Shepard argues that U.S. policy toward Nigeria has never had much to do with what was going on there or in Africa as a whole. Instead, U.S. policy makers have seen what they wanted to see and proceeded accordingly. He charts the changing face of a relationship which is in many ways typical of U.S. policy toward the nations of Africa.

"... the lesser known Nigerian side of the relationship is presented in illuminating detail." --Foreign Affairs

"... lucid and straightforward. It is well documented from sources both in the USA and Nigeria... highly recommended... " --The Round Table
