This bulletin examines the current status of Soviet training programs for Africa: the training of personnel from Africa in the U.S.S.R; Soviet study and research in the U.S.S.R. on Africa; and training programs in Africa connected with Soviet developmental projects. The increasing Soviet penetration of Africa has considerable import for the free world's efforts to aid the emerging countries of the subcontinent. It is therefore of value to attempt to gauge the extent of Soviet penetration and make rough estimates of some aspects, with an understanding, however, that the information is incomplete and primarily from Soviet sources. For more than general and tentative conclusions on the programs reported in this bulletin, further research and independent verification are necessary. Two appendices provide: (1) a table, the "Six-year Curriculum, Institute of Eastern Languages (Attached to Moscow State University), for Specialty in Eastern Languages and Literature, and (2) Translated Excerpts from "Afrika 1956-61," an Account of the Africa Institute in Moscow of Soviet Training Programs in Africa. (Contains 5 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
