Molnos, Angela, Comp.
The present Information Circular covering the language situation in East Africa has been prepared as a bibliographic reference tool for specialists, universities, and libraries. The introductory section describes the work of EARIC (East African Research Information Centre), which is sponsored by the East African Academy and financed by the Ford Foundation. This first section also includes notes for the user, information on obtaining the works listed, and further sources of information. The second section summarizes the language problems in African development for the general reader "who is interested in the topic but has no time to look up the original sources." The third section comprises a bibliography covering African, European, British, and American publications from 1964 to 1967. Appendixes include statistics on Bantu/Non-Bantu speakers in Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda; a glossary of sociolinguistic terms used in this work; and an extensive listing of publishers' addresses in Africa, North and South America, Asia, Australia, and Europe.
