"A timely study that persuasively assesses U.S. development policy and ideology in the context of cultural constructions of Africa reminiscent of nineteenth-century notions of the Dark Continent or Conrad's 'Heart of Darkness.' Essential reading for scholars in U.S. foreign relations, and those interested in the historical roots of contemporary problems and challenges facing African countries." - Kevin Gaines, author of African Americans in Ghana: Black Expatriates in the Civil Rights Era"
