With African Americans largely absent from the debate over post-Cold War foreign policy, this book gives voice to ways in which our foreign policy has fallen short of multi-cultural democratic ideals and suggests corrective measures. Covering such global issues as drug and arms control, trade, democracy-building and education, and such country specific situations as Haiti, Liberia, South Africa, and the Caribbean, from both academic and practitioners points of view, it proves that "all politics are local and global." In doing so it asks the question, can a multicultural democratic country produce a multi-cultural democratic foreign policy?
Contributors include Allen Caldwell, Ronald Dellums, Percy Hintzen, James Jennings, Keith Jennings, Clarence Lusane, Lorenzo Morris, Winston Nagan, Ronald Palmer, Tunau Thrash, and Ronald Walters.
