Historical Dictionary of International Organizations in Sub-Saharan Africa by Terry M. Mays, Mark W. Delancey

Over a quarter of the world's states are located in Africa where one can find a surprisingly large number of international organizations. Many of these organizations frequently change their names, membership, levels of activity, and sometimes even purpose. Providing readers with a tool to cut through the confusion, this work traces changes in the development and progression of these organizations. It also provides entries for the new organizations that have been chartered since 1995, including valuable updates to previously existing ones.

o An insightful introduction
o Up-to-date chronology
o A comprehensive acronym list in
English and French
o An extensive bibliography
o Reviews of events
