Abstract: 

Since the terrorist attacks on the American homeland on September 11, 2001, fighting the menace has become the frontier issue on the U.S.' national security agenda. In the case of the African Continent, the United States has, and continues to accord major attention to the West African sub-region. This book : -    Evaluates where we can place West Africa within the broader crucible of the U.S. war on terrorism ; -Establishes the key elements of the U.S.' counter-terrorism policy in West Africa? ; -Examines the U.S. counter-terrorism strategies in West Africa, and evaluates if they are being pursued both at the bilateral and multilateral levels in the region ; - Interrogates the relationship between stability in the sub-region and the waging of the U.S.' war on terrorism.
