What drives state officials to force development projects on resisting "beneficiary" populations? In his new analysis of the Tanzanian state?s 1960s and 1970s campaign to settle the country's rural population in socialist villages, Leander Schneider traces the discourses and practices that authorized state officials to direct the lives of peasants--by coercive means if necessary. Government of Development shows that the practices constituting this project's mode of government far exceeded political elites? pursuit of their own narrow interests, the go-to explanation for many accounts of similar instances of authoritarian rule and developmental failures in Africa and beyond.


In the 1960s, the newly formed Tanzanian government emphasized a progressive vision for the rural poor and their empowerment. Although high expectations were placed on planned villages, this massive social engineering experiment failed to improve Tanzanian lives. In this new analysis of the ujamaa village project, Leander Schneider traces the public discourse that authorized state officials to direct life in the villages, by coercive means if necessary. Schneider unmasks Tanzanian development as benevolent despotism and argues that the politics of development was a practice that went far beyond the interests of individual or collective actors.
