|Abstract:||This book surveys the development of the University of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, from its inception in 1961 - just two months prior to independence - to its attempt to become a 'national university' in the 1970s, ending with its monumental expansion by the early 21st century. The dominant theme weaving through the chapters of the book is the challenge of establishing a university institution in a developing nation. Attention is paid to the development of an adequate infrastructure, a suitable administrative structure, teaching and research programmes, and competent staff. Also discussed are the responses of the University to the Arusha Declaration (1967) and the Musoma Resolution (1974), and the impact of economic ups and downs. Contributors: Yusufu Q. Lawi, Bertram B.B. Mapunda, Isaria N. Kimambo, Nestor N. Luanda, Buluda Itandala, Egnald P. Mihanjo, and Kapwepwa I. Tambila. [ASC Leiden abstract]|
