The revised Historical Dictionary of Cote d'Ivoire incorporates the voluminous scholarship produced on the country since the 1987 edition. The death of President Felix Houphouet-Boigny in 1994 has unleashed momentous political and economic changes. The new leadership faces the twin problems of generating economic growth and infusing greater democracy into the political system. The new edition of the Historical Dictionary of Cote d'Ivoire is an excellent resource for scholars and students who are studying this important African state. It was written and updated by Robert J. Mundt, who has studied Cote d'Ivoire since the early 1970s and has closely followed events in this country for over twenty years. The encyclopedic entries provide important information on past and present leadership; cultural and political institutions; political and ethnic groups; and economic and social structures. The work includes a general introduction to Cote d'Ivoire and a chronology to place all this information in its proper context, and an extensive bibliography, divided according to subject, that will provide scholars with additional sources of information.
