Abstract:This paper deals with the evolution of the role of the specialized student of change in Africa. Before 1950 the study of Africa was confined very largely to the domain of anthropology. The anthropologists were all Europeans, almost always of the nationality of the governing colonial power. The changes that began circa 1950 were the consequence of the rise of African nationalism in the form of political movements. After 1950 Africa became the domain of political scientists, economists and sociologists. New groups of Africa scholars were the Black American scholars and African scholars. Notes, French sum.
