Book Preview


"The celebration of the 65th anniversary provides an appropriate opportunity for a refl ection on the contributions that Legon academics have made to the intellectual development of Ghana and Africa. That is the aim of the University of Ghana Readers Project. Our expectation is that this will mark a new beginning of solid engagement between Legon and other academics as they document their thoughts and contributions to the continuing search for new ideas to shape our world."

Ernest Aryeetey, Vice Chancellor, University of Ghana
