Reviews

This is the sort of informed and well-grounded study that makes an important contribution to what has happened in Africa and why. In doing so it provides an antidote to the portrayals of Tanzanian socialism and capitalism - Joel Samoff in INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF AFRICAN HISTORICAL STUDIESS
This is an important book in the documenting of recent Tanzanian history. DEVELOPMENT POLICY REVIEW
