Nyerere's economic policies, his successes and failures in pursuit of economic development under socialism, are some of the subjects addressed by Godfrey Mwakikagile in this book.

A Tanzanian himself, he also looks at how life was under Nyerere since the sixties.
The work is also a critical examination of the political situation in Tanzania since independence when the country was known as Tanganyika before uniting with Zanzibar.

The author also looks at the transition that has taken place in Tanzania from one-party rule to multiparty democracy, and from socialism to capitalism since the collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War.

He also takes a critical look at globalisation and the negative impact of structural adjustment programmes in Tanzania and Africa as a whole.
The work is also a study of Tanzania's history since the advent of colonial rule and of the struggle for independence in one of Africa's largest countries in terms of area and population.

Language: English
ISBN-10: 0894649116
ISBN-13: 978-0894649110
Dimensions: 8.9 x 6 x 0.5 inches

Book Description:
In African politics, Kenya's Jomo Kenyatta, Tanzania's Julius Nyerere, and Ghana's Kwame Nkrumah were known for their early radical ideas, and in the case of Nkrumah and Nyerere, for their socialistic political stance. Kenyatta was well known for his suspected leadership in the Mau-Mau revolt against British colonial rule; Nyerere for his "Ujamaa," a cooperative/socialist enterprise; and Kwame Nkrumah as the indigenous African leader who, in 1957, lit the torch of modern African political independence. This book analyzes their nationalistic-cum-Pan-Africanist and overall political contributions to African history.

ISBN-10: 0980253411
ISBN-13: 978-0980253412
Dimensions: 8.4 x 5.4 x 1.8 inches

Book Description
This is the third edition of "Nyerere and Africa: End of an Era."
It is also the largest and includes new material not found in previous editions but is essentially the same work.
It is a comprehensive study of the political career of President Julius Nyerere spanning half a century.
Godfrey Mwakikagile takes a critical look at Nyerere's policies and influence in the domestic and international arenas for an objective evaluation of the life and times of one of the most influential leaders in the twentieth century. As one of the most well-known African scholars, Professor Ali Mazrui, stated in his tribute to Nyerere when Nyerere died: "He was one of the giants of the 20th century. He did bestride this narrow world like an African colossus."

The major role Nyerere played in the liberation of southern Africa is just one of the subjects addressed by the author. He also provides insights into Nyerere's personality from some of the people who knew him best.

Included in the book are interviews with some of the people who knew Nyerere since his…

Julius Nyerere. Humanist, Politician, Thinker

Author: RASIAS
Paperback: 88 pages
Publisher: Mkuki Na Nyota Publishers (September 15, 2006)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 9987417515
ISBN-13: 978-9987417513
Dimensions: 8.5 x 5.5 x 0.3 inches

Product Description:
This collection contains major papers delivered at a conference dedicated to the memory of Julius Nyerere, held in January 2000 at the Institute for African Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

The contributors, scholars and diplomats in Russia with Africa interests, rank Nyerere on a par with national leaders such as Gandhi, Nkrumah and Nasser. Their essays show that not only was Nyerere a political figure of stature, but that he was also an uncommon philosopher-theorist who made an important contribution to the intellectual development of his country and of the Kiswahili language. They further illustrate Nyerere's reliance on unity and cooperation between African countries, and his belief that the elimination of poverty and backwardness in the country could only become a reality through cooperation with African States and other Third World countries.

Overall, this collection of papers from the Russian culture argue that Nyerere's extraordinary role in the history of Africa and his contribution to Africa's development and letters is still under-recognised,…
