In order to attain national development, the role played by information in the process cannot be denied. In fact, information does not diminish if shared but rather improves the state of the one who receives it. Countries that have invested in information as a tool for national development have a lot of stories to share with those that have not done so.

Assessing Productivity in Precolonial African Agriculture and Industry 1500-1800
In I986 when Sara Berry and I organized a graduate seminar on 'Agriculture in African History', our search of the literature for the reading list yielded primarily works of social and economic history for which agriculture was, to greater or lesser degree, a touchstone rather than a primary focus.
This book is an important contribution to social science, specifically to the field of history and politics of knowledge production. It also importantly addresses a number of specialised professional fields pinpointing critical perspectives on the contributions of African indigenous knowledge to the knowledge terrain.
