Chapter seven turns its focus to Kennedy’s relationship with conservative African nationalists William Tubman of Liberia and Felix Houphouët-Boigny of the Ivory Coast. It reveals that Kennedy was much more interested in courting the radical or Cold War nonaligned African leaders than those who were conservative, staunchly pro-Western, and already committed to the Western camp. Kennedy wagered that the conservative leaders were relics of the past who would soon be replaced by more nationalistic elements.
