Books About Sierra Leone
Long Way Gone
The Devil That Danced on the Water: A Daughter's Memoir
"Wonderful account of life in Sierra Leone and the impact of Siaka Steven's APC government"
"Ancestor Stones (to be reviewed)"
Green Oranges on Lion Mountain: The Accidental Optimist
"Green Oranges on Lion Mountain (to be reviewed)"
Sierra Leone (Bradt Travel Guides)
"Personally endorsed by the President of Sierra Leone, former PM Tony Blair and myself, this book is a MUST for anyone interested in Sierra Leone."
In Sierra Leone
"In Sierra Leone (to be reviewed)"
Soldiers of Light
"The best book on the list. Intelligent, moving and thought-provoking insight into Sierra Leone. Essential reading for those who intend to live and work there."
A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier
"Memoirs of a Boy Soldier (to be reviewed)"
Blood Diamonds: Tracing the Deadly Path of the World's Most Precious Stones
"Blood Diamonds (to be reviewed)"
A Dirty War in West Africa: The R.U.F. and the Destruction of Sierra Leone
"I highly reccomend this alongside Conflict and Collusion as the starting point for those trying to understand Sierra Leone's civil war."
Conflict and Collusion in Sierra Leone
"A great analysis of the war to be read with A Dirty War in West Africa"
The Internet For Dummies
"Use the web to find suppliers of "Fighting for the Rainforest," A.Robertson (ISBN 9781410108). It's worth the effort if you've read Dirty and Conflict (see above) and are looking for more."
Once a Pilgrim: The True Story of Man's Courage Under Rebel Fire
"Once A Pilgrim (to be reviewed)"
Operation Certain Death
"Well informed guns and glory account of Operation Barras. If you liked Bravo Two Zero you'll love Operation Certain Death."
Operation Barras: The SAS Rescue Mission Sierra Leone 2000 (Cassell Military Paperbacks)
"Frustrating. Fowler's account is short , but neither concise nor original. It has very little on Operation Barras itself and not much else to commend it. Read Operation Certain Death."
Unscathed: Escape From Sierra Leone
"A personal account of escape and evasion from the RUF that I found hard to put down. Worth reading alongside Operation Certain Death or Once A Pilgrim."
An Unorthodox Soldier: Peace and War and the Sandline Affair
"Poorly edited and repetitive. Only worth reading if you're looking into the role that PMCs played in Sierra Leone's conflict."
How De Body?
"Ow De Body? (to be reviewed)"
The Reluctant Mercenary
"The Reluctant Mercenary (to be reviewed)"
Tears of the Sweet Peninsula: May 25, 1997 Coup and the Sierra Leone Civil Conflict
"Articles published by the author after 1996. Of research interest only. Not for the general reader."
Sierra Leonean Tragedy: History and Global Dimensions
"Sierra Leonean Tragedy: History and Global Dimensions (to be reviewed)"
Historical Dictionary of Sierra Leone (Historical Dictionaries of Africa)
"Useful reference work with short descriptions of key people, places and events. But only worth the price tag for the very keen."
A History of Sierra Leone (Modern Revivals in Philosophy)
"History of Sierra Leone, Fyfe (to be reviewed)"
The Underneath of Things: Violence, History and the Everyday in Sierra Leone
"A tragedy. Given the subject and the in-depth research this book could have been great. Instead it is so utterly impenetrable that it makes even first class anthropology graduates despair."
Sierra Leone at the End of the Twentieth Century: History, Politics, and Society / Earl Conteh-Morgan & MAC Dixon-Fyle. (Society & Politics in Africa)
"Sierra Leone at the End of the Twentieth Century (to be reviewed)"
