Everyone concerned with the history and prospects of Makerere University in particular, and the history and policies of education in Africa in general, will be indebted for along time to Carol Sicherman for this monumental incisive and well writt en account. Dozens of scholarly books and monographs, not to mention novels, plays and poems, could be generated from this patient, sympathetic, scrupulous work of historical recovery reconstruction, and narration.'-William Shullenberger, Joseph Campbell chair in the Humanities, Sarah Lawrence College
