Editorial Reviews

O'Toole (anthropology and African studies, St. Cloud State U.) and Baker (a former US government worker with the Congressional Research Service and other entities) present a cross-referenced dictionary containing some 400 entries providing information on important people, places, organizations, concepts, events related to the history of the African nation of Guinea. The entries and the introductory essay largely deal with the history of the 20th century, but the chronology spans from pre-historic times onward. Also included is a bibliography of current publications.
