Reviews

"Our leaders of today must become familiar with the ways and means of solving tommorrow's problems. they must have the determination, courage, and ability to visualize a methodology that is effective enough to protect and maintain the best interests of the people in relation to the national interest. intelligent protection involves emphasis and reemphasis on the educational development of children. African nations are at war with ignorance, poverty and disease. Young people must be prepared to share greater responsibility for their nation's future. There is a need for greater and greater attention to efficient production and management on the part of African leaders in order that the children may have a decent standard of living."
