Carl G. Rosberg, an expert in African politics and professor emeritus of political science at the University of California at Berkeley, died Oct. 3, 1996 in Oakland, California.

Raymond J. Smyke notes that "was Carl Rosberg's research assistant, and we became lifelong friends." [1]

"On the Berkeley faculty since 1958, Rosberg was also the director of the Institute of International Studies, 1973-89; and the Chair of the Department of Political Science, 1969-74...

"In addition to the heavy administrative responsibilities he undertook during his tenure at Berkeley, Carl Rosberg continued to publish scholarly works, many of which are standards in the field such as The Myth of Mau Mau: Nationalism in Kenya (1966) co-authored with John Nottingham, and Personal Rule in Black Africa: Prince, Autocrat, Prophet, Tyrant (1982) co-authored with Robert Jackson."
