Summary "Covers a key two-decade period of anti-colonialism, at the close of which nearly a dozen African nations achieved independence. Developments in Rhodesia and South Africa foreshadowed later events and conditions in those countries. These reports are for the most part detailed historical and political monographs, written to inform U.S. and Allied leaders of past, and present conditions and future prospects in Africa. The OSS/State Department reports were written by highly respected academics and other researchers; writers in the series included Herbert Marcuse, Norman O. Brown, John King Fairbank, and Cora DuBois. Representative of the reports are the following titles: 'Political Parties and Personalities in Tunisia' (1950); 'Survey of Tanganyika' (1943); 'The Capacity of Eritrea for Independence' (1950); 'Trans-African Overland Routes: Ports, Railroads, Rivers and Lakes, Roads' (1942)"--The Library of Congress Guide to the Microform Collections in the Humanities and Social Sciences Division, online version.
