Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungHistorical Dictionary of the Central African Republic, Third Edition, fills the gap in the literature about a country for which very little information exists in English, covering events that have taken place since the publication of the last edition in 1992. Substantial new material covers the persons, events, institutions, and parties that have played a significant role in the history of the Central African Republic. A list of acronyms and abbreviations, an extensive chronology, and an introductory essay complement the more than 800 dictionary entries. The bibliography profiles the available literature, and provides numerous journal articles and websites as sources of current events and developments.

PortraitThe late Pierre Kalck has served as Dr. Abel Goumba's cabinet director when the latter was president of the Governing Council of Ubangui-Shari. Kalck was also President Barthelemy Boganda's representative to the president of the Community. He was chosen by the Central African government to be its representative to the GATT and the ECOSOC. He was an officer of the Legion of Honour and held several foreign honorary distinctions, including the Grand Comore and the Merite Centrafricain. He received the Lucien de Reinach Award from the Political and Moral Sciences Academy and the George Bruel award from the Overseas Science Academy, of which he had been a member since 1973. He was also a member of the Metz National Academy. Xavier-Samuel Kalck is the grandson of Pierre Kalck. He is currently involved in writing a thesis on contemporary American and English poetry at the Sorbonne University in Paris. He has previously worked on several other translations, and is in the process of editing a book of selected poems of a British poet.
