RATHER BE ON SAFARI: Adventures and Reflections from Over 100 Safaris
by Gary K. Clarke
(Topeka, Kansas: Baranski Publishing Company, 2002. 216 pp. Maps.
Illustrations. Glossary. Hardback. Full-colour dustjacket.)
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…”

United States, South Africa and Africa:
OF GRAND FOREIGN POLICY AIMS AND MODEST MEANS
by Brian J. Hesse
(Aldershot, England; Burlington, USA; Singapore; Sydney: Ashgate Publishers,
August 2001. xvi + 238 pp. Figures. Illustrations. Notes. Select Bibliography.
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,
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.
