Malawi's proud and ethnically diverse history is explored in an expanded introduction covering events from the Early Stone Age to the early 1990s. Led since independece in 1964 by Dr. Hastings Banda (now in his nineties), Malawi will soon be free of his repressive rule, but how fresh the air of freedom will be with Tembo and his successors remains to be seen. The second edition of this well-received historical dictionary ("... well and succinctly documented..." --LIBRARY JOURNAL; "...fascinating and extremely readable..." --REVUE CANADIENNE DES ETUDES AFRICAINES) addresses economic and social adjustments since 1980 and includes entries on the more desperate problems of the AIDS epidemic and the influx of refugees into Malawi. Crosby discusses health and education topics and offers suggestions for how the new leaders of Malawi need to respond. With new maps and an updated and expanded bibliography.
