Since 1957, Ghana has experienced four republics and five military regimes. This dictionary attempts to outline the complex course of Ghana's history since the probable human habitation at Jiman, on the Oti River. This volume updates McFarland's 1984 edition, covering events through the beginning of the Fourth Republic in January 1993. ...certainly an important reference tool and a welcome addition to the literature on Ghana. --THIRD WORLD LIBRARIES
