Book synopsis
This study provides a comprehensive look at the history and politics of one of Africa's smallest and least known nations: Equatorial Guinea.
Beginning with the arrival of Europeans in the 1470s and ending with the present day, it traces a tragic story of colonialism, dictatorship, socioeconomic deterioration and gross human rights violations. Questioning some established assumptions, Dr. Fegley closes with an analysis of the
international structures which have been set up to protect human rights and the attitudes which have developed around them. His suggestions
offer thought-provoking alternatives for both Equatorial Guinea and the international enhancement of human rights.
Contents
