Book News Annotation:

This study of the history of higher education in Nigeria examines public policy surrounding the development of institutions and programs designed to provide widely available education to all citizens as one facet of post-colonial nation building. The volume is divided into chronological periods of education development and examines the relationship of the state to outside development organizations as well as internal programs for education "massification." The work explores specific pieces of legislation, institutions and political trends in detail and provides a comprehensive overview of higher education in the nation. Distributed by Michigan State U. Press. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
