The History of Colonial Universities


Shiame Okunor

The book analyses the historical and political context within which universities in Ghana and Sierra Leone were established, to expose the politics, misunderstandings, and attitudes that plagued and continues to haunt education in most colonial and developing nations. A well researched book with extremely powerful and emotional but well argued points of view. A must for international and comparative educators and policy makers, graduate and undergraduates and other professionals interested in importing and exporting western education.
Contents: The book exposes the history, politics, misunderstandings, and attitudes underlying the problems of third world education. It goes beyond the traditional comparative approach to include information about important African philosophers of education.
