Reviews

With contributions from the leading social scientists in Ghana today, this important volume details the history of the foundational social scientific disciplines, explores the current state of disciplinary knowledge production, and sets out a series of bold agendas for future research.  This is a “must read” not only for students and scholars of the social sciences, but for those with an interest in the evolution of higher education, and in the powerful interplay between the social sciences and the development of public policy.
