Editorial Reviews

In the fourth edition of the Historical Dictionary of Ghana, David Owusu-Ansah. . . .provides a compendium of information about the West African nation of Ghana that will stand the test of time and historicity. This, to me, as a publication of consequence and unlimited importance, confirms the publisher' promise ti the general reader as well as experts, including researchers and students, that its historical dictionaries 'present essential information on a broad range of subjects'. . . .This publication should be useful for college students, researchers, and general readers.
