United States and Africa: The Obama Presidency









United States and Africa Relations: The Obama Presidency is a creative chronicle and compilation of history between The United States of America and Africa, with a special focus on the Obama Administration’s eight-year engagement with the continent’s leaders and peoples.

The narrative of this 300-plus-page book details the extraordinary work and achievement of the Obama Administration’s strategy toward engagement with sub-Saharan Africa. This plan, as issued by President Obama in June 2012, is centered on 4 pillars – Strengthen Democratic Institutions; Spur Economic Growth, Trade and Investment; Advance Peace and Security; and Promote Opportunity and Development.

The primary purpose for its publication is to educate and inform readers about the Administration’s work in Africa, in the broader context of United States and Africa relations.
It highlights key initiatives and US-Africa partnerships, includes important presidential and governmental statements, speeches, White House Fact Sheets, historic photographs, and follows the trajectory of bilateral and multilateral relations.

United States and Africa Relations: The Obama Presidency is a treasure to individuals and professionals involved in international affairs, as well as those who have a basic interest in the subject.
