From Mugabe's Zimbabwe to conflict in the Horn, Africa has moved off the back burner of U.S. foreign policy. In 2006 the Council on Foreign Relations published a Task Force report that, according to the U.S. Department of State, "raised the profile of Africa among policymakers." Now the Council and Foreign Affairs, its signature journal, bring us Beyond Humanitarianism, a citizen's guide to deconstructing the complex issues and conflicts on the African continent and clarifying what's at stake for the United States in Africa's future. Drawing on articles from Foreign Affairs and the Council's website,, as well as the Task Force report itself, Beyond Humanitarianism serves as a primer on the issues that are in the news --as well as those that are not. It also provides an excellent introduction to debates about the future of the continent and the U.S.-Africa relationship.
