"History of Liberia" offers a new twist and fresh historical perspective on the history of Liberia that is well worth reading. In the words of Emmanuel Abalo, former acting president of the Press Union of Liberia, "History of Liberia" offers "an absolutely invaluable historical insight couched in language which is conclusive and entertaining. A striking and eloquent literary effort."
In another review, Abdoulaye Dukala wrote that "with Liberia now emerging from war and starting a new process of reconstruction, this publication is more than timely. It is important for Liberians today and all those interested in the story of that very particular country to understand what the thinking was behind its creation and how the people who launched the process viewed themselves and viewed Africans. This book is a must-read and will open doors for scholars and students of Liberian and African history."
"History of Liberia" was written by J. H. T. McPherson as a dissertation for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy at Johns Hopkins University.
