About this product
- DescriptionCote d'Ivoire remains one of the most intriguing countries in sub-Saharan Africa. It appeared well on its way to becoming a model of development under its single political party and charismatic founding father, Felix Houphouet-Boigny, when it fell on hard ecomic times in the 1980s. Poor management of the socio-ecomic challenges by Houphouet-Boigny's successors produced disastrous political consequences, including unprecedented political violence, the first-ever successful military coup, and two civil wars, culminating in former President Laurent Gbagbo being sent to the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague to stand trial for war crimes. This third edition of Historical Dictionary of Cote d'Ivoire (The Ivory Coast) contains a chrology, an introduction, appendixes, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section has over 700 cross-referenced entries on important personalities, politics, ecomy, foreign relations, religion, and culture. This book is an excellent access point for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to kw more about the Cote d'Ivoire.
