New Library Highlight: Le Mali contemporain / Contemporary Mali


According to the editors of  Le Mali contemporain, the lack of information on the socio-political, economic and demographic changes that Mali has witnessed since its independence in 1960 has diminished an understanding of what is actually happening in Mali considerably. This collective work, with contributions by Malian and European researchers in the fields of the social sciences and the humanities, (the outcome of a conference held in Bamako in 2013), aims to remedy this knowledge deficit by describing contemporary Malian society, just before the crisis broke out. Le Mali Contemporain is the subject of our latest Library Highlight.
