By Lene Buchert
“Buchert's sensitivity to the importance of language is…[a] strength as this has been largely ignored in many discussions of education in Tanzania…Education in the Development of Tanzania is an important contribution to the debate on educational transformation from a historical perspective. It also provides an insightful historical analysis of education in Tanzania.”
Zaline M. Roy-Campbell, The International Journal of African Historical Studies
“[This book] is lucid and contains very valuable data on education and development in Tanzania. Being a product of a doctoral thesis, it is quite detailed by way of information and discusses a good number of educational innovations that have not yet been widely researched and published for wider readership. For policy makers, researchers and students of education, this book is a rare source of knowledge.”
Daniel N. Sifuna, Journal of Third World Studies
“The book is meticulously detailed, well-documented, and carefully analyzed. The maps, graphs, and statistical information included in the study help to clarify the wide-ranging data…The book should serve all internationally minded educators as an excellent source book.”
George E. Urch, Journal of Developing Areas
“This is an interesting and scholarly examination of education in Tanzania during this century. It is particularly welcome because Tanzania, perhaps more than any other African country, has experience of such a diversity of educational policies; there is much to be learned from the Tanzanian experience.”
Clive Harber, International Journal of Educational Development
Deals with the realities of education in a debt-ridden African country trying to cope with the pressures of externally imposed educational budgets.

Race, Revolution, and the Struggle for Human Rights in Zanzibar
The Memoirs of Ali Sultan Issa and Seif Sharif Hamad
By G. Thomas Burgess
Zanzibar has had the most turbulent postcolonial history of any part of the United Republic of Tanzania, yet few sources explain the reasons why. From a series of personal interviews conducted over several years, Thomas Burgess has produced two highly readable first-person narratives in which two nationalists in Africa describe their conflicts, achievements, failures, and tragedies.
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.
Can the revolutionary government of Yoweri Museveni’s National Resistance Movement put Uganda back on the road from decay to development? These informed assessments put the present situation in context. The contributors assembled as Museveni’s guerrillas were launching their final bid for power. They have finalized their contributions in the light of the Museveni government’s initial period of power.
