As stated in the Contents of African Resources section, African countries and regions are connected in thousands of ways to nearly all parts of the globe. The following references and internet sites may help initiate studies or contacts in the area of international relations.

Many of the images we receive about Africa in the popular media focuses only on the major problems (war, famine, civil unrest) in parts of Africa. You will find that resources on international relations cover much more ground. Africa’s international relations stretch to every corner of the globe. The US-African ties are also deep and  substantial.
