A major contribution … challenges the sacred cows of Liberian studies

Power and Press Freedom in Liberia is a major contribution to our understanding of how the African World has made and re-made itself over the past two centuries. But what is especially refreshing is how the book powerfully challenges the sacred cows of Liberian studies, the stale dogmas sapping its vibrancy. If nothing else, this book will oblige us to rethink the many wrongheaded assumptions stifling Liberian studies; indeed, to rethink the history of Liberia
