This book is a significant multidisciplinary effort to bring together the range of issues, which Liberia faced as it entered the 21st century. It marshals empirical data and draws from the experiences of many of the authors who are themselves scholar-activists and whose perspectives resonate with the tragedy and missed opportunities of the past and the possibilities that can be seized for 21st century Liberia. This book provides an excellent basis for rigorous review of Liberia’s immediate past and a strong platform for bold and innovative thinking and action moving forward.
