Togo is a small West African country nestled between Benin and Ghana, extending from its narrow coastline 320 miles inland to Burkina Faso. Although the country's phosphate production has given it a modicum of economic stability, Togo remains politically unstable. The third edition of the Historical Dictionary of Togo expands and updates the 1987 edition and includes events occurring after the previous edition. Written by one of the foremost experts on African politics, this indispensable reference source provides concise dictionary entries covering the people, places, events, political and economic institutions, history and culture of this fascinating country. It contains a comprehensive, multilingual bibliography divided according to subject; tables with important economic and demographic data; a list of abbreviations; an updated chronology of recent political events; and three maps covering transport and communications, administrative divisions and ethnic divisions.
Reviews of the Previous Edition:
"There is much valuable information in this work that would not be retrieved easily elsewhere...highly recommended..." ―ARBA
"...a worthwhile contribution...the bibliography succeeds admirably in drawing these sources together." ―AFRICA

About the Author:

Samuel Decalo, Ph.D., is a specialist on Francophone Africa and the Middle East. He is the author of eleven books on Africa and is also the author of the Historical Dictionaries of Benin, Congo, Chad, and Niger.

Review:

...the book will continue to be the most authoritative source of reference material on Togo, making it a must-have item on the acqusition list of every library and for researchers, policy-makers, and students interested in Africa. (American Reference Books Annual)

this dictionary provides a very valuable introduction to the history of Togo and would be of use not only to scholars specializing on Africa but also to other professionals (not least those working on human rights and related issues) who seek incisive and contemporary information about this country. (International Journal of African Historical Studies)

...provide[s] information which is not readily available elsewhere in such reliable detail, while the bibliographic sections...are easy to use and point to all the classic texts. (African Studies Review)
