War Clouds on the Horn of Africa
War Clouds on the Horn of Africa
By Tom J. Farer
Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, 1976, 157 pp.

The author's fluent pen creates a rich historical backdrop for the sere issues presented by the Horn. Analyzing U.S. military interests there, Farer carefully demolishes various rationales for continued U.S. military aid to Ethiopia in its conflicts with Somalia and Eritrea, and he produces convincing evidence to support his contention that the extent and significance of the Soviet presence in the Indian Ocean have been much exaggerated.
