"Taken together, the essays that comprise this collection provide a powerful overview of the changing ways in which Tanzanians understood and negotiated the `nation' and the institutions of state power in the 19th and 20th centuries." - Journal of Asian and African Studies "This volume is concerned with the cultural politics of power-with histories of how local people interpreted, criticized, and produced political legitimacy. In this volume, more than a dozen established and emerging scholars explore these themes in various Tanzanian historical contexts. The high esteem in which [Isario N.] Kimambo is held is reflected in the quality of the chapters and in the impressive list of contributors, including many of the most influential and active historians of Africa." - African Studies Review
