Dear Library Patrons, The mission of NYPL is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities. Government support only pays for a portion of our work, so we rely on you to help - from stocking our shelves with amazing books, expanding our e-Book selection, classes, events, or even making free WiFi accessible to all. We are trying to raise $500,000 by December 31: an ambitious goal, but one that will fund incredible learning and reading in our community. Please consider donating to help keep our services free to all New Yorkers in 2015 >>

A new edition of the historical dictionary providing a reference for scholars of Niger specifically and West African and Third World development in general. The entries include concise descriptions of Niger's important people, places, institutions, political events, economy, society and culture. The editor supplies historical detail in the introduction which lends critical analysis to Niger's leadership, its faltered economy, and its present attempts to rectify social and economic frictions by installing democratically elected governments. Includes maps and appendices containing economic data. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

Written by one of the foremost authorities on Niger and West Africa, the third edition of the Historical Dictionary provides an updated and easy-to-use single-volume reference for scholars of West Africa and Third World development.
