What is the status quo of the Namibian media system? What radio and TV stations, what newspapers and magazines compete for the attention of the Namibian citizen? What is the situation regarding press freedom and the formal education prospective journalists receive? How do Namibian journalists select news? Is the so far European-focused News Value Theory a sensible explanatory approach for that? How does news selection differ from Namibia to Germany, from private to state media in Namibia, from print to broadcasting? These are some of the central issues author Andreas Rothe addresses in this English language version of his diploma thesis.
Since 1990, when the phrase "education for all" was first coined at the World Bank conference in Jomtien, Thailand, a battle has raged over its meaning and its impact on education in Africa. In this thought-provoking new volume, Dr. Brock-Utne argues that "education for all" really means "Western primary schooling for some, and none for others." Her incisive analysis demonstrates how this construct robs Africans of their indigenous knowledge and language, starves higher education in Africa, and thereby perpetuates Western dominion. In Dr. Brock-Utne's words, "A quadrangle building has been erected in a village of round huts."
The Siyagruvaers go dancing the length and breadth of Namibia. That's the definition of paradise, right? So why are there hassles? What's with Mncedisi? Why's Brunette suddenly off-centre? And what's up with Thabiso, of all people?
Abstracts are useful in at least nine ways: 1. Papers in science and technology are published in more than 50 languages. Most users of technical publications can read only a few languages, and abstracts in one language help them to select documents for translation. The user needs, at most, two languages; at best, he needs only one language. 2. The technical literature is too large for an individual to acquire or scan. There are estimated to be 35,000 or more technical periodicals. More than 200,000 papers are published per year, with some overlap, in each of the fields of chemistry, biology, and biomedicine. Abstracts facilitate the selection of papers to be read. 3. Informative abstracts substitute for the original literature in many cases. 4. The reading or scanning of abstracts for selection of data or for deciding to read the original articles saves time over that required for selection from original documents. 5. Abstracts are more convenient to arrange into related groups than is the original literature. Adjacent technical papers bound in journals may often be unrelated. The same abstract can be placed in several categories less expensively than can originals. Many articles and reports fall into several classes of useful classification systems. Classified abstracts in a published journal bring together guides into a large field of knowledge—one several to many times larger than the user can read. 6. Retrospective searches are greatly aided by classified, indexed abstracts. Searching through reports or journals for any large field of knowledge is now impractical. 7. By the use of abstracts, accuracy of selection of literature to be read or translated is increased over that of selection from titles or titles plus annotations. The additional information in the abstract increases the accuracy. 8. Abstracts facilitate indexing in two ways: 1) The abstract concentrates the indexable subjects so that indexing proceeds at two to four times the rate required for original documents. 2) Elimination of the language problem enables assignment of abstracts for indexing by subject only. This specialization improves both the quality and the rate of indexing, because the subject specialist is not also required to read another language. 9. The preparation of articles, bibliographies, reviews, and talks requires organization of the material used; so do acquisition and searching. Abstracts can be used to facilitate this organization. For this purpose they can be copied, cut, and pasted. Organized abstracts also facilitate the indexing of bibliographies and reviews.
The most up-to-date and comprehensive travel book to a country that promises great adventures. Covering everything from the wildlife-rich Etosha National Park to the giant sand dunes at Sossusvlei.

Whether you admire German colonial architecture in Lüderitz, indulge in fresh oysters at Walvis Bay, marvel at ancient rock art or take a sunset cruise along the Zambezi, The Rough Guide to Namibia covers everything you need to know to make the most of your time in this wild, bewitching country.
