Historical Dictionary of The Gambia

A new edition of the Historical Dictionary of The Gambia  is now out. I haven't seen it yet, but if it's anything like the other books in this series from the US publisher, Scarecrow Press, it will be an essential reference for anyone interested in what really make the country tick. Or sometimes fail to tick. Co-author Dr David Perfect has written to let me know that the new edition is an extensive revision of the the previous edition of 1999 and covers events up to June of this year – which is pretty up-to-date for a hardback. Highly recommended.


  1. This historical dictionary looks at the country's history from precolonial times to the present, with entries on significant persons, places, events, and institutions, and discussions of various political, economic, and social aspects.

  2. Bakau Beach is small town which will take you back in years where people had no watch but had time for each other and away from place where people have watch but no time for each other. Bakau Beach is a beautiful sight to see when you see the fishing pirogues lined on the shore in the twilight when the fishermen come over to take it and still practice the old age method of fishing and take boats in water.
