Textbooks Series

Number of visits: 3995

Conceived in a context of a noted book famine and chronic under-representation of African scholarship in both local and global debates and in African classrooms curricula, the need for textbooks adapted to the predicaments of Africans and critical of conventional wisdom and unfounded assumptions about the African condition, was built into the 2002-2006 strategic plan of CODESRIA. Coordinated by the Training, Grants and Fellowship Programme, this series is aimed at addressing the shortage of text books in African Universities, especially those by African Scholars critical of problematic representations of the continent in mainstream scholarship.
