The Book of Needs (Vol. II) in Education, Science and Culture of War-Devastated Countries

The Book of Needs Volume II is UNESCO's second account of postwar educational losses and needs in countries which have suffered war. In the first Book of Needs (1947) an account was given of the situation in fifteen countries. In seven of these countries, all in Europe, UNESCO surveys have been made. Accounts of educational losses and needs in the remaining eight countries were compiled from reports and correspondence received by the Reconstruction Department of UNESCO.
