A new edition of the historical dictionary providing a reference for scholars of Niger specifically and West African and Third World development in general. The entries include concise descriptions of Niger's important people, places, institutions, political events, economy, society and culture. The editor supplies historical detail in the introduction which lends critical analysis to Niger's leadership, its faltered economy, and its present attempts to rectify social and economic frictions by installing democratically elected governments. Includes maps and appendices containing economic data. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
