Côte d'Ivoire remains one of the most intriguing countries in sub-Saharan Africa. It appeared well on its way to becoming a model of development under its single political party and charismatic founding father, Félix Houphouët-Boigny, when it fell on hard economic times in the 1980s. Poor management of the socio-economic challenges by Houphouët-Boigny's successors produced disastrous political consequences, including unprecedented political violence, the first-ever successful military coup, and two civil wars, culminating in former President Laurent Gbagbo being sent to the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague to stand trial for war crimes.This third edition of Historical Dictionary of Cote d'Ivoire (The Ivory Coast) contains a chronology, an introduction, appendixes, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section has over 700 cross-referenced entries on important personalities, politics, economy, foreign relations, religion, and culture. This book is an excellent access point for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about the Cote d'Ivoire.
Cyril K. Daddieh is professor and director of graduate studies in the department of political science at Miami University of Ohio. He specializes in the political economies and foreign policies of Côte d'Ivoire and Ghana.

Editorial Reviews

This third edition of the Historical Dictionary of C?te d'Ivoire (the Ivory Coast) by Cyril K Daddieh is a major update of the first two editions by Robert J. Mundt-the second edition was published in 1995. . . .The dictionary entries are extensive, readable, and informative. A most helpful aspect of this edition is the bibliography of works in French and English, spanning over 100 pages. The bibliography includes sections on culture, economics, history, politics, sciences, anthropology, ethnology and sociology, and regional studies. The section on culture includes a listing of works on the 27 languages that are or have been spoken in the Ivory Coast. This book serves as a valuable resource for scholars, policy makers, and general readers with an interest in the Ivory Coast.
