Reaching back into earlier periods when the Swazi nation was being formed, there are entries on Swazi kings, queens, and others who played significant roles. The colonial era is also clearly delineated, and entries on important people, places, and events important to Swaziland's contemporary history are also included. The considerable material provided in the dictionary is buttressed by a solid introduction, a chronology, and especially a substantial bibliography.
Alan R. Booth is Professor of History at Ohio University and is a specialist on Southern Africa.

Editorial Reviews

Its greatest value lies in the fact that a much larger than usual proportion of entries are long enough to say something useful. Almost every important figure in Swaziland's history is covered and cross-referencing in unusually adequate...can actually be recommended as a place to become oriented to Swazi history.
