The African Experience with Higher Education
By J. F. Ade Ajayi, Lameck K. H. Goma, and G. Ampah Johnson

There have been institutions of higher learning for centuries in Africa, but the phenomenal growth has taken place in the last fifty years, first in the later days of colonialism and then in the heady days of independence and commodity boom. Without them, there would have been no development.The three highly distinguished authors have written the first comprehensive assessment of universities and higher education in Africa south of the Sahara.
