About the Author​​

Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh is founder and publisher of The Liberian Dialogue political website. A longtime political activist, Mr. Sungbeh and his wife Geebly and their kids reside in Lawrenceville, Georgia, USA.


About the Book

Mr. Sungbeh’s book is about political activities in Liberia.  He deals with more than just politics.  He discusses issues relating to politics, Healthcare, Sports, the Environment, Education, Foreign Affairs and many more.The book also addresses issues that are important to all Liberians. 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. Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh 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, MrSungbeh did a superb job.

Presidential Behaviors of Liberian Presidents from 1847 to the Present



About the Author

Nyaquoi Bowman is a Liberian writer and contributor to the Liberian Writer Series, at Kiiton Press. He is an avid observer of Liberia’s political institutions, with a particular interest in Liberian presidency. Nya was born in Dingamon, Garr clan, Nimba County, to Mr. Joseph N. Bowman and Mrs. Kou Zenneh Zogbeh of Ganta City. Nya is a recipient of Minnesota Academic Excellence Foundation (MAEF) award and a selected member of Governor Scholar in Minnesota, in 1994. In 1997, Nya was a part of Southwest State University’s delegation to Winnipeg, Canada to partake in a week long Model United Nations He obtained his BA in political Science from Southwest State University in Minnesota and did his postgraduate work at Augsburg College, majoring in leadership.


About the Book


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. This 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 other 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 lost huge  chunks of its territories to Sierra Leone, Guinea and the Cote d’Ivoire.  The book also discusses some of the issues that started 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.

  TIPOSAH:

MESSAGE FROM THE PALAVA HUT


​About the Author


Siah has a BSW degree in Social Work and a MBA degree in Management. He is a founding member and past president of the Union of Liberian Associations in the Americas (ULAA), a precursor of Liberian organizations in the U.S. He is a member of the Pastoral Staff of the International Christian Fellow (ICF) Church in Atlanta, Georgia.  He is the Chairperson of the Liberian Democratic Future (LDF); the publisher of the 1st Liberian online Internet newsmagazine - THE PERSPECTIVE.

Siah is the Chairman of the ULAA Council of Eminent Persons (UCEP). He serves as advisor to many Liberians and African organizations. He is a retired Mental Health/Developmentally Challenged Professional. Siah serves as Consultant for Mental Health/Developmentally Challenged Organizations and International Businesses. He lives in Lawrenceville, Georgia. 


About the Book


TIPOSAH: Message from the Palava Hut is a thought-provoking book of poems which is entertaining and at the same time raises vexed issues regarding the ills of the world and the Liberian society. These poems are reflections of things said and done to humanity, in the past as well as in the present.  Siah's poems are also folklores and critical commentaries of a world in crisis.

         Siahyonkron Nyanseor has entered uncharted literary waters; but those of us who knew him before any of his children were born know that he has the perseverance to press on.  His world for now may be as small as the Liberian nation and its community that is steeped in the simplicity of the everyday life he captures in equally simple terms.

         He uses simple styles, compelled by a need to be understood than the needless effort to satisfy a requirement for rhymes.  His meaning is often not hidden or coded.  His characters are not held to ridicule, even if life's circumstances force them into villainous vocations.  We see ourselves in these characters.  We strive to do better when we see how they struggle in their everyday life, which Siah captures with artful simplicity…    From the Foreword by Tarty Teh

About the Author


​The Author, Arthur Diggs Soben retired from self-employment (Taxicab, and Laundromat businesses).  He is a father of four children, Toupee, Miami, Michelle, and Patrick.  He obtained a B.A. degree in accounting from the University of Liberia, and earned M.B.A. from Johnson & Wales University in Rhode Island, USA.

     Mr. Soben worked tirelessly as volunteer with “Obama for America” Campaign.  He served as poll worker for the 2012 US General Election in the state of Rhode Island.  Anyway, this book is not about the author, it is about President Barack Obama, and the CHANGE of MENTALITY of the American people that gave him the opportunity to begin changing America and the world for the good of mankind.


About the Book


In this book, Mr. Soben argues that in order to bring about local, national or even international change, an arm struggle is not always necessary.  What is necessary is to change the mentality of the people for them to gain new understanding, and new perspectives about reality.  He considers Mr. Barack Obama a beneficiary of the change of mentality in America from slave holding of Jim Crow’s days to today where discrimination and segregation are now frowned upon.  It is this change of mentality that has ushered in a Black African-American (in the true sense of the word) into the White House which Mr. Soben calls the "White and Black House." When people's mentality is changed, a quiet revolution takes place where there is no need for bloodshed or violence.  

 Mr. Soben does not claim that there are no longer segregation and discrimination in America.  He believes there are still places considered bastions of racism; while there are still many who practice racism.  However, he clarifies the fact that because there is this sweeping Change of Mentality, Black people can do things they were never allowed to do; go places they could not go before; live in places they were denied to enter; and hold positions they were never permitted to hold.  It is all due to the Change of Mentality.

This is a very informative book.  Mr. Soben details Obama and Michelle's lives’ stories and navigates his readers through all the grassroots activities of Obama, his educational preparation, and his unbelievable journey from childhood into the "White House and Black House." He painstakingly guides his readers through the two elections of Obama's two terms presidency.  Mr. Soben is very good at details and specifications. 

 This is a MUST READ. Here is how Obama and Michelle did it.  Ordinary people made it happen.  You might learn some strategies for climbing the social ladder, not only in politics, but also on your job, in your career, at your school, in your organization, club or wherever you may be, where leadership matters.

Here is a Letter of Appreciation President Barack Obama, the President of the United States, wrote to the Author and the Publisher, Thanking us for this book we sent him as a gift.

Shortly before  2014 Christmas, right after Mr. Arthur Soben's book: President Barack Obama: Change of Mentality  was published, we sent the President a copy of the book as our Christmas gift  to him and his family. Yesterday, we received a very fine note from him thanking the both of us for the gift. We were very joyful to hear from the President of the United States of America and to  know that he appreciated our meager gift to him and our contribution.

 

We at Kiiton Press are exceedingly happy for this letter from the President of the United States of America.
