about

This powerful book argues persistently that the historical settlement of liberated Americans of African descent had a destabilizing impact on the geography, politics, social and economic structure, environment, and culture of Liberia. The author also draws attention to the environmental consciousness of indigenous Liberians and delves into the historical roots of the principle health problems and industrial activities threatening Liberia's environment. Contents: Glossary; Liberia Historical Roots; Geographical Description of Liberia; The Arrival of New Settlers; Historical Review; Environmental Devastation; Introduction; Principle Health Problems Which Have Historical Roots; Building of Monrovia: A Case Study; Impact of Foreign Capital on National Decision; Deforestation and Ecological Impact; The Impact of Iron Ore on Aquatic Biomass; Proposal of a New Environmental Policy in Liberia, Summary and Recommendations; Endnotes; Bibliography.
