Debate from ROAPE Volume 34 Number 114
African Perspectives on US Policy Toward the Continent
James H Mittelman - It is a privilege to chair the 2007 Current Issues Council plenary session at the fiftieth anniversary annual meeting of the African Studies Association (ASA). Thanks to the ASA Board of Directors for making possible this opportunity for a frank and open discussion of US policy toward Africa. For many of us at this session, the ASA has been an intellectual home and venue where friendships are formed and deepened. Assembled here are different constituencies and generations of Africanists. I represent a generation that has participated in ASA annual meetings for decades. For me, the first one was the turbulent meeting in Montreal in 1969.
