Reviews

"Danfulani (strategic studies, Univ. of Abuja, Nigeria; Centre for International and Strategic Studies) has produced the first compilation of English and French information sources on strategic studies in Africa ... The work includes a list of specialized journals and specialized institutions. It ends with a study annex, which could assist scholars. Although useful for researchers and policy makers in Africa, this book will also prove valuable to upper-division undergraduate students, graduate students, and faculty of international studies. Due to its specialized focus, this work is recommended for academic libraries with large international security and national security collections." - CHOICE

O. Bassey
