HISTORY OF LIBERIA. I. INTRODUCTION. There are but few more interesting spots in Africa than the little corner of the west coast occupied by the Republic of Liberia. It has been the scene of a series of ~xperiments absolutely unique in history-experiments from which we are to derive the knowledge upo~ which we must rely in the solutioll of the weighty problems connected with the development of a dark continent, and with the civilization of hundreds of millions of the human race. ~fany questions have arisen which have not been settled to our complete satisfaction.

They may attain it in time if they are fairly treated, but they can attain it only on condition of going through the discipline and experience of hundreds of years, through which the white rac

This paper claims to be scarcely more than a brief sketch. It is an abridgment of a History of Liberia in much greater detail, presented as a dissertation for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy at the Johns Hopkins University. I have devoted the leisure hours of several years to the accumulation of materials, which I hope will prove the basis of a larger work in the future -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

1.0 von 5 Sternen confused 6. Januar 2014

My confusion is not on the book I have not read it. My confusion is on the 1 review it received. The reviewer gave the book I star, yet the information given on the book suggest good information was given on the subject of the history of the country. Perhaps the concern was the length of the book.

It's difficult reviewing a "book" (all 53 pages) that was not what I thought it was going to be. I am currently writing a book on my adventures during four visits to Ghana as a field biologist but needed information on Liberian history. Why Liberia? On my way to Ghana, accompanied by a student, in 1979, our Pan American flight ended in Liberia because there was a coup d'etat in Ghana. Although I have a library of well over 500 books on Africa, I had little on Liberia and wanted to include some facts about Liberia in my description of our week there. When searching for a history of Liberia on Amazon.com, this book popped up. Okay, so it was short, but perhaps it provided a nice concise history of major Liberian moments in its history. The date of publication was listed as 2009. When I opened the book upon it's arrival, I discovered that this was a republished dissertation (that much I knew) but that it was written by a professor of history and politics at the University of Georgia in 1891!

I have skimmed portions of the book and had to remember that it was written in a time of Jim Crow, i.e., segregation policies, in the deep South (and in the North as well, perhaps not as virulently so, although you may challenge that conclusion). This book should be fascinating to students of history -- not only of Liberian history -- but especially of American attitudes toward slavery, emancipation, and the solution to the"free black problem" that gave birth to the the Republic of Liberia. Perhaps such students of history would rate the book higher than my one star. By the way, my student and I went on to Ghana a week later on the next Pan Am flight only to find that former heads of state were being executed by firing squad!
