Sierra Leone?s unique history, especially in the development and consolidation of British colonialism in West Africa, has made it an important site of historical investigation since the 1950s. Much of the scholarship produced in subsequent decades has focused on the ?Krio,? descendants of freed slaves from the West Indies, North America, England,... more...
