Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The twentieth-century history of Njombe, the Southern Highlands district of Tanzania, can aptly be summed up as exclusion within incorporation. Njombe was marginalized even as it was incorporated into the colonial economy. Njombes people came to see themselves as excluded from agricultural markets, access to medical services, schooling—in short, from all opportunity to escape the impoverishing trap of migrant labor.

Book News Annotation:

Giblin (history, U. of Iowa) presents a social history of the peculiar state of exclusion-within-incorporation that exists in sub-Sahara Africa, and how the private family sphere became the realm within which people lived their lives. He focuses his study on Njombe, the Southern Highlands district of Tanzania, which he says was marginalized even as it was incorporated into the colonial economy of Germany and Britain between the middle 1890s and 1961. People were excluded from agricultural markets, health care, schooling, improved living standards, and most importantly knowledge of the workings of the colonial economy.

Synopsis:

This is an intimate view of change in a rural Tanzanian society during the twentieth century. It focuses on individual women and men and is told largely in their own words. It traces their efforts both to defy and benefit from the most important event in the modern history of Africa-the imposition of authority.
