Five Elections in Africa

Excerpt

The contributors to this volume have separately acknowledged help received from many quarters: it remains for us as editors only to reiterate that studies of this kind (if they are judged to be worth while) depend on generous support and collaboration from governments, political parties, administrators, and universities. We have received such support in full measure.

In July 1957 the Warden and Fellows of Nuffield College most generously arranged a small conference which was attended by the contributors to this volume and by a number of other scholars interested in the study of elections or of African affairs. The East African Institute of Social and Economic Research made it possible for the only one of the contributors to this book who was not in England at the time of the conference (Mr. Engholm) to fly there for the purpose, and we are most grateful to Professor L. A. Fallers (then Director of the Institute) for such generous help.

We are also greatly indebted to members of the staff of the Institute of Commonwealth Studies of the University of London: Miss M. Eyre and Mrs. N. Marsh for much assistance in the preparation of the manuscript for publication; Mrs. M. Bull for compiling the index; and Mr. A. R. Hewitt for reading the proofs.
