The viability of Nyerere’s approach is a matter of continuing debate. Marxist scholars have become increasingly critical of Tanzania’s ideology as well as its strategy. Non-Marxists, while acknowledging Tanzania’s many peculiar problems, continue to support the aims and strategies outlined in the Arusha Declaration. This book, which includes vigorous statements from both interpretive schools, provides unique access to the fundamental issues of debate on Tanzania’s future. The volume concludes with an extended interim assessment of Tanzania’s transition to socialism written from a democratic socialist perspective.
‘…compelling and rewarding reading. Pratt’s concluding chapter offers an excellent analytical summary of the problems and progress Tanzania has experiences…his review of the theoretical an ideological considerations of the debate succinctly identifies the practical realities which Tanzania faces.’ Choice
