Notes

The doctoral dissertation of the eminent physician, polymath, and UN delegate Davidson Nicol. Inscribed from the author to his Cambridge mentor Frederick Sanger on the front free endpaper, "To Fred Sanger, with many thanks for your help and inspiration over this work, from, Davidson Nicol. Return address: University College of Sierra Leone, Freetown". With a handful of small manuscript corrections and insertions of special characters by Nicol.
Nicol was born in Freetown, Sierra Leone, and became the first African to graduate with First Class Honours from Cambridge and the first African elected Fellow of a Cambridge college. He went on to earn a medical degree from St. Bart's and then returned to Sierra Leone where he worked as a university administrator. Nicol served as Sierra Leone's chief United Nations delegate from 1969 to 1971, was president of the Security Council, and later became the Under Secretary General and head of Unitar, a UN institute that teaches diplomacy, negotiation, and economic and social development to diplomats from developing countries. A prolific author, he wrote both fiction and works on international politics, and in later life was president of the World Federation of United Nations Associates.
