Language, Education and Political Power: Some Reflections on the North-South Relationships.
Watson, Keith
Language and Education, v6 n2-4 p99-121 1992

Linguistic and educational policy dilemmas in multiethnic, multilingual African countries suggest that linguistic dependency is leading to both technological dependency and scientific/technological marginalization.
