520 1  "Sierra Leone's current predicament can best be understood
       within a continuum spanning its precolonial to its more 
       contemporary history. This study traces the contradictions
       of the historical legacy and the excesses of the 
       independent nation-state to unravel the sequences of 
       dependency that culminated almost inevitably in political 
       instability unprecedented socio-economic decline, and 
       civil war. 
520 8  The authors draw on a rich texture of historical and 
       political insights reflecting established knowledge, while
       also plumbing contemporary orature to present a truly 
       holistic perspective of this soft state. Students, 
       scholars, or general readers interested in the dilemmas of
       developing states will find this essential reading."--BOOK
