Abstract : Like the previous volume on the subject (DA PAM 550-5) which was issued in April 1967, the new edition endeavors to assess the problems and prospects in the vast continent. The difficulties and accomplishments are looked at from both--a broad, regional point of view, as well as from a specific, national point of view. The work includes data on the strategic importance of Africa as a continent, and also provides facts and figures on the political, sociological, economic, and military aspects that contribute to the viability of individual African states. More than four thousand books, periodical articles, and monographs, were searched in the preparation of this work. The body of material is supported by 91 appendixes and 53 maps, of which 18 are in color.
