Cossa, J. (2008). African Renaissance and Higher Education: A View through the Lenses of Christian Higher Education. Germany: VDM Verlag Dr. Muller.

Blurb: This book addresses the crucial intersection between the African Renaissance and higher education. While using the case of Christian higher education in South Africa, the value of this Renaissance-style book, extends beyond the impact of the phenomena on religious affairs in South Africa into all aspects of present-day African life. Africans cannot deny that the core influence of the phenomena, i.e., to revalidate African traditions in the face of challenges such as post-colonialism, neocolonialism, and globalization, is sweeping the continent, thus an understanding of its impact is crucial in situating African perspectives in regards to African identity in academia and other spheres.
