Sharing of knowledge is one principle of TUCSIN. Therefore 19 scientists and 2 writers from USA, Canada, Germany, South Africa and Namibia made the effort to report on their past and present activities in Namibia. The articles span a time frame of more than 10 million years and cover a large spectrum of subjects. Issues concerning the whole country: Migration in Namibia; Examples of development and progress; and for the first time published in Namibia: the chronology of the Namibian rock art.
