As the foreword itself declares, "the message of this book exceeds its subject matter." The author, who has also written about the Soviet threat to Latin America and China, leans heavily on Soviet source materials depicting Africa as a seedbed for revolution and largely avoids the question of the U.S.S.R.'s actual impact there.
