University Student Protests and Political Change in Sierra Leone

Overview

This scholarly analysis of the dynamics between university students and an autocratic political and military government fills a large gap in African studies. University student protests in Sierra Leone were in part responsible for governmental change in 1978. Much of Sierra Leone's educational history has been forgotten because the pursuit of such studies was considered to be a luxury.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Exploring the 1977 student protests at Fourah-Bay College in Sierra Leone, Hinton (educational administration, U. of Sierra Leone) examines the political motivations and participation of the students and situates them within the political an economic context of educational system of Sierra Leone. He argues that the students acted as intermediaries between the state and the masses and that they acted out of feelings of social responsibility. He develops a theory of "role concept" to explain how the students saw themselves situated in society and their relationship to political participation. The student protests of 1977 are also compared to other student protests in Africa. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
