The collection includes Nyerere's ground-breaking policy paper 'Education for Self-Reliance', which remains a key reference work on progressive and transformative education in a postcolonial context. Other papers discuss the ethical basis for expanding tertiary level education in a developing country where primary education is not yet established, as well as the education needs and rights of school-aged children.
"You don't have to be a Communist to see that China has a lot to teach us in development. The fact that they have a different political system than ours has nothing to do with it."
Julius Kambarage Nyerere, as quoted in Donald Robinson's The 100Most Important People in the World Today, New York 1970.
