“There are few more interesting spots in Africa than the little corner of the west coast occupied by the Republic of Liberia…” And so the story of the Republic of Liberia’s foundation begins in this account by Dr. J.H.T. McPherson, a Fellow in History at Johns Hopkins University. ‘History of Liberia’ was initially published in the journal Johns Hopkins University Studies in Historical and Political Science in 1891. This publication by Developing Press and The Liberian Times features an all new preface by Dr. Fred PM van der Kraaij of the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs as well as Liberia’s Declaration of Independence and three constitutions which had been in effect in Liberia prior to the initial publication of this book.
