This book develops from an awareness of incompetent mind-sets in Tanzania brought about by the colonial era and the post-independent ideologies of development. The book suggests that at independence, Tanzania inherited a system of education which was meant to produce an elite group used in entrenching colonialism even after the exit of the colonizers. It was an education which facilitates dependency on former colonial masters at the peril of the citizens. Consequently, there is a lack of practical education made in Tanzania for the Tanzanians. The author employs a hermeneutic approach in exploring post-colonial studies and theories which apply political and economic colonial theories. The work draws insights from colonial literature largely from postcolonial scholars and writers. The first part analyses colonialism and its aftermath in the area of education and development in Tanzania. There is a call for autonomy-compatible interactions in the development agenda, and therefore the need to pay attention to economic and political researches parallel to peace education, philosophies of fairness, cooperation, participation and reverence for life as a whole.
Thoroughly,from the year 1999 to 2002 E.C; it was discovered that the majority of university instructors have good perception and conviction towards the importance of research in HEIs., the university does not have its own sufficient potential research method trainers, its rate plus the proportion of instructors who have ever taken in-service research training so far was not considerably good. It was also examined that the university does not have organized internal quality research audit body /system, and strict selection criteria used to select quality research projects at the university level. Some how good book publication experiences being seen in the university could signal the research competence of the institution. Yet, the status of the University in disseminating the research findings to the surrounding community looked low.Though good research deeds are being shown, the research capacity of the university could be judged and concluded as some how moderate. To end with, the study recommends that the University has to organize and perform permanent in-service research training to its academic staff as compulsory task of the institution.
Folklore and National Development: Kom and Bakweri Proverbs, demonstrates that proverbs collected from two disparate cultures - Kom and Bakweri - can contribute to the process of national development especially in a country like Cameroon which is heterogeneous, multilingual and pluri-cultural, and which is yet to cultivate a sense of national identity in its citizens. The originality of this work lies in the fact that it is the first known attempt to treat the issue of national development from the perspective of proverbs (culture) rather than economics and politics as has been the case so far. There is promise here, and scholarship is awaiting its fruits. Professor Emeritus Kashim Ibrahim TALA University of Buea, Cameroon.

Distance learning has become an acceptable mode of education and training but studying through distance learning has been eyed with suspicion over the years. The mode of learning of the distance learner has raised preconceived ideas from society in general that the distance learner is a non-performer in industry. There are more negative comments than positive ones as far as ODL is concerned. The university must take the responsibility of sensitising, educating and encouraging learners in developing a positive attitude towards distance education because the society has its own perceptions about distance learners. The distance learner has shown maturity and distance learning has afforded those who were not able to get university education when they were still young and were not lucky to have parent who could pay for them. Not everyone who completes secondary education is able to get a place at a conventional university some opt not by choice by circumstances. Most women will only first go into marriage before going to university and they will have to obtain degrees through distance learning.

Focusing specially on the role of education at advanced levels it can be said that higher Education provides an opportunity to reflect upon the critical social economic, cultural, moral and spiritual issues facing humanity. It contributes to national development through dissemination of specialized knowledge and skills. It intern turns out to be crucial factor for survival. It is indeed difficult to conceive of a future vision for building up sustainable and prosperous society without education. For instance while the economy provides for necessary resources to promote a system of higher education, the system prepares in turn a cadre of manpower with varying degrees of specialization and efficiency levels of skills with which they may affect higher productivity for various factors of production.
Education is a basic human right that is recognized in Article 26 of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It is also essential for human resource development which is the basis for national development. Since 1990 numerous education reform policies have been undertaken in The Union of Myanmar. Nonetheless there still remain areas of concern that need to be addressed. The main objective of this thesis is to provide an overview of the education reform in Myanmar as it deals with the country setting, a brief historical background of education and teachers plus a critical review of the way in which the education system has evolved. The roles played by the teachers are further highlighted as they are central in the success or failure of the education reform which depends largely upon the interactions and the inter-changing roles they play.

Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett's "The Spirit Level: Why Equality is Better for Everyone" is the most influential and talked-about book on society in the last decade - now updated with a new chapter on the controversy the book has ignited. Why do we mistrust people more in the UK than in Japan? Why do Americans have higher rates of teenage pregnancy than the French? What makes the Swedish thinner than the Australians? The answer: inequality. This groundbreaking book, based on years of research, provides hard evidence to show: How almost everything - from life expectancy to mental illness, violence to illiteracy - is affected not by how wealthy a society is, but how equal it is; that societies with a bigger gap between rich and poor are bad for everyone in them - including the well-off; how we can find positive solutions and move towards a happier, fairer future. Urgent, provocative and genuinely uplifting, "The Spirit Level" has been heralded as providing a new way of thinking about ourselves and our communities, and could change the way you see the world. "A big idea, big enough to change political thinking". ("Guardian"). "A remarkable new book ...the implications are profound". (Will Hutton, "Observer"). "The evidence is hard to dispute". ("Economist"). Richard Wilkinson studied economic history at the London School of Economics before training in epidemiology and is Professor Emeritus at the University of Nottingham Medical School and Honorary Professor at University College London. Kate Pickett is a Professor of Epidemiology at the University of York and a National Institute for Health Research Career Scientist. Her work with Richard Wilkinson on "The Spirit Level" was shortlisted for Research Project of the Year 2009 by the "Times Higher Education Supplement", and their book was chosen as one of the Top Ten Books of the Decade by the "New Statesman".
This book addresses the operationalization of culture in U.S. military intelligence. It draws from the expertise developed by Dr. Jim Schnell’s 35 years in the military intelligence community, most notably serving as a HUMINT officer in the U.S. Defense Attache System (retiring at the rank of Colonel) and as the Lead Social Scientist, U.S. Army Culture & Foreign Language Office (as a civilian). This practitioner experience is enhanced via his theoretical background in civilian higher education. Schnell’s Ph.D. (Ohio University, 1982) in human communication processes and relevant scholarly publications, focusing on cross-cultural relations, provide ample context for analyzing U.S. military intelligence operations. His work as a Fulbright Scholar and multiple fellowships at the East-West Center (Honolulu) has served to cultivate insights relevant for the civilian academic community and military intelligence professionals. He has held teaching posts at Beijing Jiaotong University, Ohio State University, Royal University of Phnom Penh, University of Cincinnati and Ohio Dominican University.
