In 1958, Guinea declared independence from France and propelled Ahmed Sekou Toure to power. Early revolutionary fervour was not to last, and until his death in 1984, Sekou Toure ruled with an iron fist. What would it have been like to participate in Guinea's changing political fortunes? Jay Straker invites readers to reconsider the sources, stakes, and ramifications of Guinea's nation-building experience.
