This book tells the story of Tanzania's socialist experiment: the ujamaa villagization initiative of 1967-75. It investigates how Tanzanian leaders and rural people creatively conceptualized ujamaa and documents how villagization unfolded on the ground, refining prevailing theories of national development and expanding our understanding of postcolonial Africa.
Introduction; 1. A postcolonial project in the Cold War world; 2. Militants, mothers, and the national family; 3. Uneven development and the region; 4. Remembering villagization; Conclusion.
