A new book titled “Sierra Leone Beyond the Lome Peace Accord” edited by Dr Marda Mustapha and Dr Joseph Bangura hits the bookstores today August 17. According to the publishers Palgrave Macmillan, the project undertaken by the scholars is meant to address the void in the literature of Post-Lome Sierra Leone.
DR. MARDA MUSTAPHA
Another scholar Prof Raphael Njoku had this to say about the book: “In spite of the copious literature produced on the Sierra Leone civil conflict over the past two decades, very little attention, if any at all, has been devoted exclusively to the terms of the Peace Accord as a basis for evaluating post-war reconstruction programs. Sierra Leone beyond the Lomé Peace Accord provides a detailed account on the successes and failures of ongoing post-conflict efforts.”
The book cover which depicts central Freetown was painted by Richmond Garrick; the prologue was written by Ahmed Koroma commonly known as Stokes.
