The country of Gabon, located in equatorial Africa on the Atlantic coast, gained its independence from France on August 17, 1960. Its strong economic base in mining, forestry, and especially petroleum has made Gabon one of the most prosperous nations in the area. It also boasts the longest serving African head of state in President El Hadj Omar Bongo Ondimba, who, having won election after election, has been in power since 1967. The third edition of the Historical Dictionary of Gabon provides crucial information about the country's important persons, places, events, and institutions. This is done through the use of several hundred cross-referenced dictionary entries, an introductory essay, a chronology, a list of acronyms and abbreviations, maps, and a comprehensive bibliography.

The Heart of Darkness, this is the image that most in the West hold of pre-colonial Africa. Joseph Conrad's description of a continent lacking in civilization, commerce, and Christianity is familiar to many readers. Historians have been working to dispel this notion before since the institution of African independence after World War II. Collins seeks to familiarize the reader with pre-colonial Africa, the Africa that began with the migrations of the Bantu from their homeland in 500 B.C. and ended with European control in the 19th century, revealing the culture, events, achievement and rulers of Africa from this time.

This edited work by Dr. Reed and Dr. Barnes is a strong collection of essays on Gabon from leading scholars of the region and is a collection that truly lives up to its professed goal of presenting interdisciplinary approaches. Contemporary politics, AIDS and Ebola, environmental policies, food production crises, and the history of pre-colonial Gabon are among the wide variety of subjects covered with clarity. The work is also an indispensable guide for those who wish to learn more about Gabon, a country that has attracted relatively little interest in Anglophone circles.
