Abstract:In 1973 the authors conducted a survey of political scientists teaching African politics courses at American colleges and universities. The intention was to collect information about: 1. the techniques used in teaching African politics; 2. the books assigned most frequently to students; 3. the choice of African political systems for emphasis in the classroom; 4. the current level of student interest in African politics.
