Historical Dictionary of Sierra Leone, Hardback Book

Historical Dictionary of Sierra Leone Hardback

Part of the Historical Dictionaries of Africa series


This new edition is based primarily on recent research on the country, but covers the earliest known inhabitants, the colonial era, and the period of independence including the very confusing turmoil of the recent past.

The chronology briefly traces its history and the introduction provides an essential overview of all the recent developments in the country.

Hundreds of cross-referenced entries describe significant leaders, events, political parties and movements, ethnic groups, and related political, economic, and social aspects.

A bibliography is included to facilitate further research.
