“Why is this book a ‘must read’? In my view, it is because (Schmidt) manages to bring together a massive amount of information across a highly diverse socioeconomic and political landscape, organize it around a very persuasive set of propositions, and present it in a highly readable and compelling way.”Larry Swatuk, African Studies Review

"Foreign Intervention in Africa After the Cold War, by one of the leading Africanists in the United States, is richly detailed and beautifully organized. The bibliographical essays at the end of each chapter make it especially helpful to students. This is a fine study that is ideal for classroom use." Allen Isaacman, author (with Barbara Isaacman) of Dams, Displacement and Delusions of Development
