Annotation

Eggers (linguistics and English, California State U.), who lived in Burundi in the 1980s, presents an historical dictionary of the sub-Saharan African country. Entries are listed alphabetically and cover national figures, political parties, the army, economy, society, and culture, with specific topics such as slavery, language, women, education, HIV/AIDS, and relations between the Hutu and Tutsi, and individuals such as Melchior Ndadaye and Jean-Baptiste Bagaza. Entries range in length from a paragraph to a few pages; more have been added to this edition. Appendices list kings, and postcolonial prime ministers and presidents.
