The First Liberian Civil War

The Crises of Underdevelopment

Series:

George George Klay Kieh Jr.

This book challenges the dominant view that the first Liberian civil war was caused by ethno-cultural antagonisms between and among the country’s various ethnic groups. Alternatively, the book argues that the war was the consequence of the multifaceted crises of underdevelopment – cultural, economic, political, and social – generated by the neo-colonial Liberian State.
