African-Arab Relations

By Hilmi S. Yousuf
Amana Books, 1986
212 pp. $12.50

On a subject that defies organization and summary treatment, the author of this study, after a brief historical overview of Islam in Africa, sensibly confines himself to two main aspects, which he covers competently and without polemics. The first is African policies toward the Arab-Israeli conflict, told largely from the record of published rhetoric at the U.N., the OAU and the Nonaligned Movement's conferences. The second is Arab aid to Africa, where he does a useful job in bringing together data from the many Arab funds and banks in the business of dispensing aid.
