African nations are increasingly prosperous, democratic, and interconnected with the lives of regular Americans. The combination of new technologies and new threats to U.S. national security—the spread of terrorism, international criminal networks, and cross-border disease—are also pushing Africa higher up the U.S. foreign policy agenda. The continent is thus now more important to the United States than ever before. Moss, a former senior State Department official, will discuss the challenges a rising Africa poses for American foreign policy, assess the Obama Administration’s performance, and share why he wrote about all of this in his new fictional thriller about Mali, The Golden Hour.
