Description of Equatorial Guinea since it was a Spanish colony, its independence, the coup d´etat, and present.
Examines the brush-like shape of digging sticks used by chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes troglodyets) found in Mboete, Equatorial Guinea and how they use this in everyday life. Field research and experimental treatment of trees aided in research.
This study covers the outlook products in Equatorial Guinea. For the year reported, estimates are given for the latent demand, or potential industry earnings (P.I.E.), for the Equatorial Guinea (in millions of U.S. dollars). Comparative benchmarks allow the reader to quickly gauge Equatorial Guinea vis-a-vis regional and global totals. Using econometric models which project fundamental economic dynamics within each country and across countries, latent demand estimates are created. This report does not discuss the specific players in the market serving the latent demand, nor specific details at the product level. The study also does not consider short-term cyclicalities that might affect realized sales. The study, therefore, is strategic in nature, taking an aggregate and long-run view, irrespective of the players or products involved.
From the slave trade to the cultivation of cacao: The Evolution of the Spanish Colonial Model in Equatorial Guinea Between 1778 and 1914
This book analyzes the changes that occurred in Equatorial Guinea between 1778 and 1914. These changes occurred in 3 different stages: first, the creation of a slave trade enclave, despite the existence of international accords banning it; second, colonial commerce, in a free-trade environment that flourished in Spain and Europe in the second half of the 18th century; finally, exploitation of the territory - based on the cacao agriculture - and protected markets to boost national production, a reflection of the protectionist bent that came about in the last decade of the 19th century.
When in 1861, the British explorer Richard Burton arrived as consul T Fernando POo, the tiny Spanish possession in the Gulf of Guinea was a colony almost unknown and untapped. Burton wrote about the Spanish island, about the people who lived and those who did in what would become the mainland from that same colony, so that their memories represent an exceptional testimony of the first Spanish presence in Africa and the area for which he was extended in subsequent years. For this first time, this book provides a key document to get to know the terribly racist mind whose attitude is often overlooked, with which the European colonization of the continent addressed. The texts collected here offer a glimpse away from the mythical image of the intrepid explorer and scholar, as analyzing those letters in which he shaped with extreme harshness its entrenched racist beliefs and contempt for life and the suffering of Africans, journey that takes us into the roots of the racist theories of the twentieth century.
The collection of traditional stories of Equatorial Guinea has been chained into this book and is extremely diverse and heterogeneous. The stories in it are full of traditions and talk about very different ethnic groups, themes and motifs that give us an overview of the diversity in this country, and their meeting in this volume has been issued by the sternum and purely arbitrary reason that they have all been gathered under a collective survey that each interviewer has explored the social and family environment that was closer.
