Historical Dictionary of Burundi (2006) (Non-Fiction)
By Ellen K. Eggers

The third edition of the Historical Dictionary of Burundi is an important reference made all the more so by the lack of information available on the country. Informing not only about the present and the recent past, the book presents the country's early history as well, which serves to reveal the sources of conflict. This is accomplished through a chronology, a list of acronyms and abbreviations, an introductory essay, appendixes, a bibliography, and several hundred cross-referenced dictionary entries on history, politics, economy, society and culture.
