Abstract

243 powerfulness of subnationalism compared with other factors. Although he proposes that African affairs should be "supra-domestic" (p. 1) has main theme is the conflict between Nigeria and Ghana for leadership in Africa; most leaders and factions resented Nkrumah's hegemony (p. 76). "National interests" were involved in Fernando Poo and the Cameroun but regional differences became significant in Nigeria's policies towards Israel and the Arab states. Akinyemi also documents Nigeria's mediatory role in preparing interstate coalitions for the 1963 Addis Ababa summit. He concludes with a suggestive but unrelated review of Nigeria's foreign policy principles. Both volumes accept the impact of systemic variables although they claim to focus on domestic inputs. Their deficiencies suggest the need for a political economy of linkage politics to explain the policies and actions of dependent states. Nevertheless, both these Nigerian publications are well-produced, with indexes and bibliographies, and are welcome additions to analyses of African international politics.
