This thoroughly revised edition (first edition, 1990), includes two completely new chapters (2 and 6). It covers the whole of Sub-Saharan Africa, taking into account South Africa, with much more focus than the first edition on areas using languages other than English or African languages (e.g. French). It presents arguments and offers possible solutions for the problems and issues surrounding information and libraries for the people of Africa. The two new chapters on information needs and existing responses in African communities, and ideas and experiments for new information services to the whole community make this a very 'people-centred' approach.
