About the Authors
For libraries with African and/or Africana studies programs.
— American Reference Books Annual
[T]his is an outstanding work. Brief literature searches have revealed no similar historically focused book, and it must be considered the most authoritative and detailed general reference source on the CAR available in the English language.... Libraries that specialise in African studies will almost certainly want to acquire this new edition, especially if one or more of the three previous editions are in stock. Rowman & Littlefield’s historical dictionaries of specific countries are often most valuable where the country is little known and there is a paucity of other reference material. This is certainly the case for the CAR and we should be grateful to the publisher for their persistence in continuing to produce this and similar such dictionaries.
