Summary: "Profoundly rich empirical evidence shows villagization's peculiar, personalized, and self-destructive aspects, soundly based on rare and exceptionally rigorous archival research; it alone makes this book worth reading." -James R.

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.
