Anthropologist, poet and novelist Jackson returned to Sierra Leone in 2002, after some 30 years’ absence, at a time when the West African country was emerging from a violent 11-year civil war. In the 1970s, Jackson had lived among Sierra Leone’s Kuranko people, conducting ethnographic fieldwork. He returned to ghostwrite the autobiography of his old friend, the eminent politician Sewa Bockarie Marah-known as "SB"-leader of Sierra Leone’s People’s Party. This book mingles the two projects; it captures both the intensity of high politics, by relating SB’s (otherwise unwritten) biography, and the traumas of the common people.

In 2002, as Sierra Leone prepared to announce the end of its brutal civil war, the distinguished anthropologist, poet, and novelist Michael Jackson returned to the country where he had intermittently lived and worked as an ethnographer since 1969.

In 2002, as Sierra Leone prepared to announce the end of its brutal civil war, the distinguished anthropologist, poet, and novelist Michael Jackson returned to the country where he had intermittently lived and worked as an ethnographer since 1969. While his initial concern was to help his old friend Sewa Bockarie (S. B.) Marah—a prominent figure in Sierra Leonean politics—write his autobiography, Jackson’s experiences during his stay led him to create a more complex work: In Sierra Leone, a beautifully rendered mosaic integrating S. B.’s moving stories with personal reflections, ethnographic digressions, and meditations on history and violence.

Though the Revolutionary United Front (R.U.F.) ostensibly fought its war (1991–2002) against corrupt government, the people of Sierra Leone were its victims. By the time the war was over, more than fifty thousand were dead, thousands more had been maimed, and over one million were displaced. Jackson relates the stories of political leaders and ordinary people trying to salvage their lives and livelihoods in the aftermath of cataclysmic violence. Combining these with his own knowledge of African folklore, history, and politics and with S. B.’s bittersweet memories—of his family’s rich heritage, his imprisonment as a political detainee, and his position in several of Sierra Leone’s post-independence governments—Jackson has created a work of elegiac, literary, and philosophical power.

Gave this to my daughter & her family. They were moving to Sierra Leone. They found it informative & useful.

The questions arising in this splendid piece of anthropological work are many.How can a society go on after the devastation? Why did it happen? Those are the two most important questions, which Michael Jackson contemplates while he meets people and writes an biography of the Sierra Leonese politician Sewa Bockarie Marah. I read slowly and thoughtfully to understand the richness and sometimes provocative thinking Jacksons puts forth.The thoughts of the book comes back when I read articles from different newspapers and journals.The conflict can't be explained in an article. It is too complex. But the book can enrich and be enriched by different articles in the main press.
