Acerca de


The most significant thing about Guinea is its potential. It is strategically located in West Africa, with a well-educated and hardworking population, and endowed with considerable natural resources, indeed, enough to make it reasonably affluent if properly utilized. But this potential has never really been tapped, due mainly to bad politics with military men following a charismatic politician, until finally democracy has been achieved. So, more than half-a-century after achieving independence, the question remains unanswered: which way will Guinea turn?

This fifth edition of Historical Dictionary of Guinea covers the full scope of Guinea’s history. This is done through a chronology, an introductory essay, appendixes, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section has over 800 cross-referenced entries on key events, leaders, governmental, international, religious, and other private organizations, policies, political movements and parties, economic elements and many other areas that have shaped the country’s trajectory. This book is an excellent access point for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about Guinea.

About the Author:

Mohamed Saliou Camara is the author of this fifth edition. Born and educated in Guinea, he studied at the Gamel Abdel Nasser University of Conakry as well as abroad, and worked in Guinea for the Press Bureau of the Presidency, the National Radio Television Network of Guinea, and also taught at his alma mater. He is presently a professor of history at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Florida. He has written numerous articles and four books on Guinea.

Thomas E. O’Toole wrote the first three editions and co-wrote the fourth. He first visited Guinea as a Fulbright student in 1963 and returned thereafter. He has been teaching about Africa, including history, anthropology and sociology ever since 1968, this at the University of Minnesota, St. Cloud State University, and presently Metropolitan State University in St. Paul. He has written many articles and several books on Africa.

Janice E. Baker, who co-authored the fourth edition, went to Guinea as a Peace Corps Volunteer teacher and has worked for the Congressional Research Service and President Jimmy Carter’s Commission on World Hunger.
