This book offers the most thorough modern history of Sierra Leone and solutions to the problem of its political instability. The book begins with a history of Sierra Leone. It then discusses the roles of those who contributed to the formation of this small West African country. Chapter two examines the early chiefs, and the institutions of colonial origin in the country. After independence in 1961 there emerged two major political parties. These are Sierra Leone's Peoples Party, and the All Peoples Congress. Since the discovery of diamonds the country has built their economy around that precious mineral. Chapter three evaluates the politics of diamonds and their implications for Sierre Leone's political development. The utilization of underage laborers, corruption, and smuggling are all scrutinized. Subsequent chapters talk about the turbulence in the country and how anarchy and civil war engulfed the country for several years.
