In 1957 the Commission for Technical Co-operation in Mrica South of the Sahara (C.C.T.A.) adopted the recommendation of a Specialist Committee in Economics that an Inventory should be prepared listing all work relating to Mrica published since 1945 in the field of economics and that this should be supplemented periodically to incorporate new wo.rk. This task was entrusted to the Panel of Correspondents in Economics, each member of which was asked to survey the literature relating to his own region and to list all works th.ought to be suitable for inclusion. The task of classification and preparation for publication was u.ndertaken by the General Editor, Miss Peter Ady, Fellow of St. Anne's College, Oxford, and Associate Member of the Scientific Council for Mrica (C.S.A.).* This is not the first Mrican bibliography in the field of economics. A similar task was undertaken in 1956 by the International Mrican Institute with a Bibliography concerning the whole field of the social sciences. The Editors wish to record their gratitude to the International Mrican Institute for permission to make use of their earlier compilation of material in the field of economics. They were also fortunate in having the assistance in the preparation of the section for the British Territories of Mr. Arthur Hazlewood, who had prepared the I.A.I. Economics List for British Mrica and who, although not on the Panel, undertook the initial compilation for the British Territories.
