Defying Dictatorship: Essays on Gambian Politics, 2012 - 2017

by Baba Galleh Jallow

Defying Dictatorship is an illuminating account of the nature and patterns of the 22-year autocratic rule of a former Gambian leader - Yahya Jammeh. In these pacy and pungent essays, the author exudes optimism in the redemptive power of knowledge to liberate the Gambia from the vice-like grip of tyranny and usher in an era of national renewal marked by liberty and egalitarianism.
