ABOUT THE BOOK

Presidential Behaviors of Liberian Presidents From 1847
 
to Present
is a massive collection of Liberian history. It

 examines  the behaviors of Liberian Presidents from 1847 to

 present and provides a fascinating and informative account of

 decision-making of each President during his tenure. It also

 includes biographical information about each leader, with

 emphasis on where they were born and how they leaped to the

 political scene. In a unique way, this book draws from a variety

 of leadership theories to attach leadership styles to each of the
  
presidents discussed.

      The book also highlights some of the conflicts that existed 
between Americo-Liberians and the indigenous population and
the cascading effects such conflicts had on Liberians, leading to
the 15-years civil war that destroyed the country. Key among
the conflicts highlighted are Americo-Liberians attempt to
maintain their political dominance and the native population's 
demands for a more opened, inclusive and democratic society.

        
 I should mention however that this book is not a comparison of

Liberian Presidents, nor is it a book that discusses why some Liberian
  
Presidents failed and others succeeded; rather, this book teaches Liberian
  
history and provides readers with unique glimpses into circumstances
  
that  drove each President to make some painstaking decisions to

preserve  the unity,
dignity and sovereignty of the nation. For example,
  
this book  will help readers understand why Governor Joseph Jenkins

Roberts  hurriedly declared independence for Liberia in 1847 
and why
  
Liberia l
ost huge  chunks of its territories to Sierra Leone,

 Guinea and
the Cote d’Ivoire.  T
he book also discusses some of the

 issues that 
fermented the civil war.   
In short, this book is a tool-kit for

understanding Liberian history and a  
primer for gaining insights into

decision-making at the executive level of
 
the Liberian government.

                                The Publisher’s Note

Kiiton Press was established to fill the void and neglect left by the major publishing houses.  In addition, Kiiton Press focuses on publishing books especially for Liberian writers who otherwise may not have their books published by the big publishing houses.  This is why we have set up what we call The New KP Liberian Writers Series; to publish books for Liberian writers who need a professional publisher that understands the Liberian culture and context. We invite non-Liberian authors as well as those who are first time authors. Some of the authors for whom we publish are minorities, Latin Americans, Caribbean, Africans, African-Americans, Women, Children, Scholars, Non-scholars, Students and many more. Visit our Website: kiitonpress.org.

We particularly invite Liberian writers to contribute to our New Liberian Writers Series.  Our dream is that the Liberian Writers Series will encourage Liberian scholars to write textbooks that are relevant and contextual for Liberian schools, colleges and universities. Most of the books in our school system, including the colleges, universities and even the seminaries, are out dated books written in foreign countries by foreigners for their own people.   Most of those books do not address our Liberian realities.  This is why it is important for Liberians to begin to write their own books that address Liberian context and realities.

It is with enormous gratitude and exceeding great joy that we welcome Mr. Nya Bowman’s seminal contribution to our New Kiiton Press’ Liberian Writers Series No. 3.   

Mr. Bowman’s book is not only about the past presidents of Liberia, it is a Liberian history book that details the social, political, economic and cultural conditions of Liberia since Liberia became a nation.  

The book also addresses the on-going social conflict that has kept the Americo-Liberians and the Indigenous people at odd with each other for more than a century. He explains how each president dealt with the ethnic crisis and what efforts were made to amalgamate and integrate the Liberian people. Mr. Bowman clarifies issues about the internal and external crisis each president had to deal with to maintain Liberia’s territorial integrity. Mr. Bowman discusses the reasons why the French and British colonial powers took portions of Liberia’s lands and attached those lands to their territories in Guinea, Sierra Leone and the Ivory Coast. Will we ever get those lands back?  These contemptuous issues are discussed in this book.  This work is very relevant and contextual. No Liberian school that teaches Liberian history should go without this book.

We encourage the school system in Liberia to include this book on their list of textbooks to be used in the various high schools, colleges and universities as the need may arise. We also encourage the general public to use the book because there is much to learn from what Mr. Bowman has written.  This is a thorough research.  The work is not perfect, and does not include all we wanted to include because of many considerations relating to the size of the book and the expense that goes into publishing such a work; however, by and large, Mr. Bowman did a superb job.  He has our compliment.
