Inhaltsangabe: In the early 1960s, nationalist politicians established in Tanzania a stable government in the face of external threats and internal turmoil. Paul Bjerk's volume chronicles this history and examines the politics and policies of the nation's first president, Julius Nyerere. One of the great leaders of modern Africa, Nyerere unified the diverse people who became citizens of the new nation and negotiated the tumultuous politics of the Cold War. In an era whenmany postcolonial countries succumbed to corrupt dictatorship or civil war, Nyerere sought principled government. Making difficult choices between democratic and autocratic rule, Nyerere creatively managed the destabilizing forces of decolonization. With extensive archival research and interviews with scores of participants in this history, Bjerk reorients our understanding of the formative years of Tanzanian independence. This study provides a new paradigm for understanding the history of the postcolonial nations that became independent in a global postwar order defined by sovereignty. Paul Bjerk is assistant professor of history at Texas Tech University.

Review: This very detailed book importantly links political events in Tanzania with what was happening regionally, continentally, and globally. Bjerk provides insight into one of Africa's most important political figures and the domestic and international political events of the time. Recommended. CHOICE At a time when Afro-pessimism is so much in vogue it is good to have a book like this. Here the stress is on the competence of African leadership, on government's creativity in the face of international actors, and on the close link between the people and their leaders. There is much here to celebrate and admire. INT'L JOURNAL OF AFRICAN HISTORICAL STUDIES

A fascinating read for anyone interested in understanding either the formation of Tanzania or the man who I would argue is modern Africa's most exceptional, idealistic, intelligent and, as this book shows, at times quite coolly ruthless, leader: Julius Nyerere.
