In Search of a Nation : Histories of Authority & Dissidence in Tanzania, Hardback Book

In Search of a Nation : Histories of Authority & Dissidence in Tanzania Hardback

Edited by Gregory H. Maddox, James L. Giblin

Part of the Eastern African Studies series

Description

The double-sided nature of African nationalism - its capacity to inspire expressions of unity, and its tendency to narrow political debate - are explored by sixteen historians, focusing on the experience of Tanzania.

The narrative of the nation of Tanzania, which was created by the anticolonial nationalist movement, expanded by the Union after the Zanzibar Revolution, and fused by the ideology of Ujamaa by Julius Nyerere, has shaped Tanzanian political discourse for decades, but has not obliterated the great wealth of political discourses and identities which exist within the nation.
