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.'
