I’D RATHER BE ON SAFARI: Adventures and Reflections from Over 100 Safaris
by Gary K. Clarke

Order Form PDF
(Topeka, Kansas: Baranski Publishing Company, 2002. 216 pp. Maps. Illustrations. Glossary. Hardback. Full-colour dustjacket.)
$26.95 each

Gary says: “(My) book is not a ‘continuous story.’ I realize now that I have been writing it for quite some time – probably since my first Safari in 1974. I’ve maintained a Journal from each Safari, so the book is a collection of vignettes from various journeys as well as thoughts and philosophies about wildlife and Safaris in Africa. I think the book will have particular significance to those who have been on Safari. It also should appeal to those who have dreamed of going on Safari. The book is more than just wildlife stories. I’ve tried to convey my feelings for Africa…”

Gary’s note cards depict select scenes from some of his safaris, photographed in Zimbabwe, Kenya, Namibia and Tanzania. They make excellent gifts, particularly those who need a small thank you during the holiday season.

The United States, South Africa and Africa:
by Brian J. Hesse

Purchase at Amazon.com
(Aldershot, England; Burlington, USA; Singapore; Sydney: Ashgate Publishers, August 2001. xvi + 238 pp. Figures. Illustrations. Notes. Select Bibliography. Index. Hardback.)
Book available at Amazon.com, Ashgate.com, BN.com, etc.

The United States is a global superpower at the heart of the international system; South Africa is a regional hegemon on a peripheral continent. Yet, despite the US and South Africa's disparate positions in the international order, in this book Dr. Brian J. Hesse makes the claim that the foreign policies of each toward Africa in the 1990s evolved comparably, ultimately becoming strikingly similar near the end of the decade.
A central feature of this comparable evolution and eventual congruence, he
argues, is the correlation between "grand foreign policy aims" - the overarching tenets and doctrines which prevailed in US and South African foreign policies toward Africa - and "modest means" - the limited availability or limited utilization of resources.
