For four decades, Makerere University-the |Oxford of Africa|- was the sole university-level institution in all of East Africa. A fabled Mecca for aspiring youth, it trained many of the region's first generation of intellectual and political leaders, including the present presidents of Kenya and Tanzania, and remains today one of Africa's most important universities. This book, the first comprehensive look at an African university. Makerere has grappled with the fundamental question of how to create a truly African university amid such globalisation.
