Who has earned Africa’s brotherhood, friendship, and loyalty?
As the battle for influence in Africa rages on, Africans have been caught in the middle of major economic and military powers at each other’s throats once again.
In recent years, many have often struggled to fully understand and grasp the geopolitical landscape, global balance of forces and the struggle for power, influence, and dominance on the world stage.
As a result, this book seeks to break down the historical geopolitical dynamics that have given rise to current global political issues, dissect major geopolitical developments over the last few years and attempt to locate Africa’s position in the global balance of power.
