Title:Marketing co-operatives in a developing country: the Tanzanian case
Author:Saul, John S.ISNI
Periodical:Taamuli: a Political Science Forum
Geographic term:Tanzania
Subjects:agricultural cooperatives
marketing cooperatives
Abstract:Case-study of the effect of a particular social structure upon the functioning of co-operative institutions and contribution to a more general effort to identify the range of 'social prerequisites' to successful agricultural co-operation. Focus is upon Tanzania's efforts to make use of the instrument of co-operation in realizing her development goals. The author has chosen a macro-sociological focus (a national one) which enables him to make certain points which are of crucial importance for the topic under discussion, and which, in a microscopic analysis, are all too readily consigned to the category of 'external variables' (and, regrettably, left unanalysed). Sections: The setting - The aspiration - The problems - The future. Notes.
