- et al.
Published in 1968, this paper provides an introductory survey of the nature of the problem of adapting and modifying African customary law to meet the requirements and conditions of political independence, economic growth, and increased mobility in Africa. It is particularly valuable because it examines and compares such efforts in both Anglophonic and Francophone Africa.
