Penetration and Protest in Tanzania · Impact of World Economy on the Pare, 1860–1960 · By Isaria N. Kimambo

The originality of this study of rural transformation stems from the way in which Professor Kimambo has used the oral tradition to reveal the history of the impact of the world economy in northeastern Tanzania. First under the pressures of commodity trade, and later under German and British imperialism, the peasant producers of this region were forced into participation in capitalist production. These partial changes destroyed the Pare’s balanced subsistence structure.

Second Economy in Tanzania · By T. L. Maliyamkono and Mboya S. D. Bagachwa

Every country has its second, underground, unofficial, irregular or parallel economy. By their nature they are hidden and defy accurate and formal measurement. They provoke conceptual and definitional arguments among analysts. There has recently been a surge of interest; anecdote, newspaper reports and ‘educated guesses’ have increasingly been replaced by serious analysis. However, most of the new generation of studies are of developed economies.

Economic & Social Origins of Mau Mau, 1945–1953 · By David Throup

This story of Kenya in the decade before the outbreak of the Mau Mau emergency presents an integrated view of imperial government as well as examining the social and economic causes of the Kikuyu revolt. Dr. Throup combines traditional Imperial History with its emphasis on the high politics of “The Official Mind” in the Colonial Office or in Government House with the new African historiography that concentrates on the people themselves.

Slaves, Spices and Ivory in Zanzibar · Integration of an East African Commercial Empire into the World Economy, 1770–1873 · By Abdul Sheriff

The rise of Zanzibar was based on two major economic transformations. Firstly slaves became used for producing cloves and grains for export. Previously the slaves themselves were exported. Secondly, there was an increased international demand for luxuries such as ivory. At the same time the price of imported manufactured gods was falling. Zanzibar took advantage of its strategic position to trade as far as the Great Lakes.

The New Effective Voluntary Board of Directors · What It Is and How It Works · By William R. Conrad Jr.

More than one million nonprofit or voluntary organizations have been incorporated in the United States, and there are countless others throughout the world. Although they range in size and purpose from small social clubs to large and complex organizations such as universities and hospitals, they all have one thing in common: a board of directors of some type. What these boards do varies as much as the organizations themselves.

A Rehabilitation of Say’s Law · By William Harold Hutt

A Rehabilitation of Say’s Law, in addition to being a contribution to pure economic theory, deals with the most urgent current issue in the economic field. It shows that exactly the same problem is baffling statesmen and opinion-makers today (1974) as was baffling them in the 1930’s. They are trying vainly to perceive the path to a healthy (as distinct from an inflationary) prosperity.
