Descrizione
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
