Sinopsis:

This book suggests some quantitative and qualitative approaches for future research in African Studies that would allow a more comprehensive look at the quality and usefulness of the field. A major premise of the book is that research in the field of African Studies is in need of constructive change resulting from healthy debate over appropriate methodologies, the linkage of theory and practice, and the ways in which African Studies research can be usefully compared to other fields. In sum, the ten chapters in the book edge toward the suggestion that African Studies might merit the definition of the 'scientific study of Africa.'
Contents: List of Figures and Tables; Preface; Introduction; QUANTITATIVE STUDIES; Attitudes Toward Krio and Its Use in Various Domains; A Time Series Cross-Sectional Study of the United States Foreign Assistance to Tropical Africa; An Analysis of Recent Conflicts in South Africa Using COPDAB; The Expansion Method Applied to African Economic Development Processes; Explaining and Predicting Causes of Military Coups d'Etat in Africa: A Meta-Analysis; An Analysis of Ethnic Voting in Nigeria's 1979 Presidential Election: The Utility of Univariate Statistics; QUALITATIVE STUDIES; Political Science and the Study of African Politics: A View from the Grassroots; Conducting Survey Research in an African Country: Suggestions for Other Researchers; The African Anthem, Nkosi Sikelel'i Afrika: A Methodological Exercise in Linguistic Presuppositions; Conclusion: Ethics and African Studies Research; Bibliography.
Contributors: E. Morohundiya Sawyerr, Chris M. Kimaru, Walter W. Hill, Steven M. Banks, Ngozi Caleb Kamalu, Olufemi Vaughan, Emanuel N. Uwalaka, Mohamad Sulaiman Dumbuya.

Descripción de la librería

Welcome to Lime Bay and our home page. We started our on-line books in September of 1997. Why?.. because years of loving, reading and collecting books has gotten out of hand - that the hobby has grown bigger than the numerous book shelves throughout the house. Recently we were also asked to help with two family estates. One of these libraries was as eclectic as it was massive. So here we are¿ Our own interests are B.C. History, Art, Science and Nature, Collectables (especially toys, bottles), militaria, mystery and science fiction. If you didn¿t see books you were interested in listed in the system, especially Agatha Christie, Dorothy L. Sayers, Ruth Rendell, Piers Anthony, please ask, especially if you are interested in pocket books. We tend not to list our pocketbooks, but we have a lot of mystery and science fiction. So where on earth is Lime Bay? It is an historic little cove off Victoria¿s outer harbour which looks out at the Straits of Juan de Fuca and the Olympic mountains, a view we fortunately get to share. The history of Lime Bay dates roughly to the 13th Century when it was used as a defensive site by the Salish peoples. In Historic times it served as a burial area for native peoples. Few traces remain of its past history, and today the bay¿s claim to fame is Spinnaker¿s Brew Pub, a must-stop on your waterfront stroll. Victoria has always maintained a strong British influence. It is situated on Vancouver Island on the far west Coast of North America. It is a city of gardens, antiques, lots of book stores, and a beautiful spot for a holiday.
