book people
 n.pl.— «Another peculiarity in Liberia life and politics is the misconception that the “book people” (a Liberian parlance for persons with some kind of formalized education in a classroom setting, as opposed to education in a Liberian cultural setting) have overarching monopoly over knowledge, wisdom, understanding, and leadership skills in Liberia.» —“Liberia Election 2005: A Journey Marred In Confusion Or Bigotry?” by Nat Galarea Gbessagee Liberian Times (Monrovia) Oct. 1, 2005.
