This book is a product of conversations, discussions and debates that
took shape from early 2020 as the election season leading to presidential,
gubernatorial, and senatorial elections rose in prominence in the US. The
connecting thread throughout the book is how Africa should approach the
US during the tenure of the Joe Biden administration, and whether or not
there has been change or continuity in the US’s Africa policy – from Clinton
to Biden. It offers academic and expert views on US-Africa issues that should
be considered by policymakers, intellectuals, government officials and civil
society actors.
