Dunn Quoted on Africa

Kevin Dunn, assistant professor of political science, was quoted on President Bush's trip to Africa in the Reuters story “U.S. Presidents Rare Beasts on African Continent” from Sunday, July 6. According to the article, few U.S. presidents have been sighted in sub-Saharan Africa, and the challenges of drawing Africa and America closer remain after decades of estrangement and unfulfilled promises.

“Largely Bush's Africa trip is a publicity campaign to convince a rather unconvinced African public that he really cares about African issues and America is not the aggressive imperial state that many have characterized it recently,” said Dunn.
