United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
Eighteen recommendations made by a 1962 United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) seminar on teaching the basic sciences in African universities introduce the conference report. A general summary of the conference proceedings, reported separately for pedagogic problems and difficulties of organization and administration, forms the first major section of the volume. In the second section, containing papers commissioned by UNESCO to focus the attention of the participants on the general problems faced in other countries, mathematics, physics, chemistry, geology, and biology teaching are each examined, and the results of a survey of African university staff interpreted and assessed. The papers in the second section contain references to the problems in the country of the writer, and, sometimes, comparisons with the African situation. A list of conference members is included.
